Today I had to make one of the hardest decision so far in my triathlon career.  I had to make the decision to not race Rev3 Quassy.  I have been dealing with a bone bruise from Knoxville and at this point I am not 100% healthy.  While a bone bruise doesn't sound like much of an injury, at least it didn't to me when I was first diagnosed with it, the recovery time is typically between 6-8 weeks.  I have been able to do some training but the injury occurred only 3 weeks ago.  While I think I would be able to get through the race my team and I are concerned about what would happen to my recovery after the race.  (I wonder if this is how Derrick Rose feels, except without making $25,000,000 a year) The season is still relatively early for me and I have a lot of races left to do to accomplish my goals for this year.  Rev3 Quassy was definitely a race that I was looking forward to competing at and I think this is why this decision has been so difficult.

I will continue to do whatever I can to get healthy and prepare myself for Rev3 Williamsburg and for the rest of the Rev3 series.  Good luck to everyone racing Quassy this weekend.
