Or in my current situation: thanks for a great water-run! Because I still can’t run for real until the end of January.

I’m closing in on my last couple of days of being a triathlete. In the wake of a bunch of things, and looking forward to a bunch of other things, I have decided that I won’t renew my USAT license. Not as a professional, nor even as an amateur.

What I kind of wanted to title this post was “hey internet, I quit!”, retiring is for the fancy pros after all. But out of gratitude and respect for all the wonderful people and organizations who love the sport and who contributed to my love for it, I decided not to :) .

Thanks, all. See you from the sidelines.

    Wow! It seems like you are at peace with this and I’m really proud of you! I hope that your body continues to heal well and you find great joy in being an awesome cheerleader. We all need these breaks, pro or ami. Good for you. Cheers to a healthy and delightful 2013.

    Well, I am tentatively planning to archive this whole site as it is now, and switch over to an academic style website that’s fairly static, just CV and research interests or something like that.

    Don’t abandon the blogging entirely.

    Looking forward to your continued blogging. As a former triathlete myself, I find solace in the words of others who have “moved on” to bigger, better (or simply other) things.

    All the best in your next adventure! I’m finding it’s good to find new things and new perspectives. I love triathlon but I’m not sure I’ll be a triathlete again. Totally get that.
