You did the right thing,Tori - we'll do better in the future making it clear that if you check the TT box in registration, you're declaring yourself eligible and planning to attend if selected. But yes, tough to be interested in the results and in talking to everyone, but to be on a totally different start/finish cycle. I felt the same way! It was good to see everyone come from far and wide and have some good time together as a team.
I agree I think you did the right thing and I would have done the same if I knew I couldn't go. But shame others didn't makes doing the right thing hard.
It was great to see you :)
Thanks! This post wasn't meant to be negative about anyone else; I just think it was unclear what was expected and unfortunately it was something I ended up thinking about quite a bit over the weekend.
It was great seeing both of you too!
Yes, I agree we were unclear. It's on our list of things to do better next year!
