I am distressed because the Triathalon association in T&T decided to institute a rule for the triathlon in September that says if you do not finish within 45 minutes of the first place finisher they will consider you a DNF. I guess they do not want people of a certain fitness level competing in the triathlon. I find that very disappointing on a couple of levels. SO I guess I will continue to train but probably not compete in races. Sigh. Anyway that's how it goes, I guess I will aim for the Tobago Triathlon that does not have any rule like that.
I just needed to get it off my chest and vent to you guys. I know that people in bigger countries cannot imagine something like this, but this is the reality in a smaller country. Sports like triathlons feel very elitist and I try not to get upset but sometimes they make it very difficult.
