Long story short I made a registration error and am not able to race at Ironman Arizona. Luckily I am able to race a week later in Mexico at Ironman Cozumel. I am very grateful that I am able to finish my season properly and race an Ironman – Ironman Arizona has been my A-Race from the start of the year and if I wasn’t able to race in Cozumel than the 2011 season would have been very, very disappointing.
My wife was the one that encouraged (and allowed!) me to go race in Cozumel instead, I was ready to call it a season because I was the one who had made the mistake (albeit a completely honest one) that disabled me from racing in Arizona.
Thank you Mari.
