Although I was unable to participate this year, Kathy and I watched and cheered as my team of Mark Pophal, Kathleen Zielinski, and Loretto Agdinaoay (my biker substitute) took 1st place in the Cleveland Triathlon! I am very proud of them and wish I could have joined them. Next year we defend our title!
My recovery after 1 week is slowly progressing. My orthopedist was very optimistic (no surgery necessary) at a good recovery. I may be back in training in 4-6 weeks.
