Didn't realize you were that sick. Thanks for thinking through how to handle the relay under the circumstances, and hope to see you hungry for a return to WOC in the future!
What a tough decision to make. Good job making the call you thought was right. Congrats on surviving your first WOC! I am sure there are many more ahead!!
Thanks Tori & Boris. It wasn't actually a hard decision - I tried to do a bit of jogging in the morning and just felt very weak, so it was clear that competing wouldn't be a good idea. I rarely get sick so it felt pretty unlucky, but stuff happens!
