A Double Bummer Today
This morning I get an email that the DCTri (Olympic) 1500m swim, 40km bike, 10k run, for June was cancelled because they couldn't get a permit form US Park Service. I'm a real history buff, and thought it would be a great event.
I already had my plane reservations on a non-refundable fee.
Then an hour later, I get an email that the racewalk clinic I was to attend next weekend in Austin has been cancelled. At age 60, after 8 knee surgeries and a recent knee replacement my running days are done, but I figured I could still finish if I can walk a 10-12 minute mile.
Living in TX, we had a family reunion loosely planned with Mrs. Mono's New England family for DC in June. And now I gotta' try to learn to walk fast on my own.
Like I said, double bummer.
