Going to the big race

Kate and I wrote a blog entry about the 2015 ITU World Championships in Chicago for 303 Triathlon. It's online here.

the annual ITU World Championships, held in various formats since 1989(1*), is one of the ultimate races. This year, Colorado residents made up 47 members of Team USA (8), and probably loads of other Coloradoans competing for other countries. The ITU World Championships isn't just a single race, it is actually some 20-races, with all but the elite mens and womens races split by the usual 5-year age groups. But it is also more than just races, it is a massively accessible 4 day, triathlon festival, with 7,000 athletes from some 60 countries.

I'll write a brief race report on my actual race. Suffice to say I did slightly better than I expected, with a few of the usual surprises.
