Whoops-A-Daisy!

cy-mill-ave.gifOops! In the past few weeks we have discovered a few of the many reporting errors we made in 2013. A deadly pox upon us for the egregiosity of our faux pas-es. (What is the plural form of "faux pas"?) In any case: Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima cupla! (Latin for "We're really sorry.")

Here are the boo-boos that are making us look and feel like do-dos:

#1 - When speaking of Cathy Yndestad's 2013 scorecard, we mentioned that she had won five multis and now has a total of 64 career victories. Cathy (photo L) actually won six tris in '13. The one we missed occurred early May. It was at the Esprit de She Sprint Triathlon...

A brief overview -

May

Oakdale Duathlon – Typical early season rust-buster, but probably wouldn’t be doing this race if I didn’t need to go Kansas the next week. My 7th time here makes this my most frequented race....

From the GWBT Editor– over the next few weeks we will be posting some thoughts from the boss (not Springsteen) who has put together a list of 26 influential people in his life.  People that have helped mold, direct, and teach.  Each day, starting November 30th, we will add one of the 26 individuals to the list…but don’t take my word for it:

 

“Speak Kind Words and You Will Hear Kind Echoes” 

Last December 14th we were all shocked by the horrific act at Sandy Hook Elementary...

Operacion Eau de Chlorine is getting to about the 6 week point. It’s hard to pinpoint exactly because the first 3-4 weeks were just easing back into training, emphasis on the word ease.
