Just filled out my registration for the Ohio University Athletes in Action sprint triathlon. $76! Really? Seems like a lot considering. For comparison sake, I can race the 72 mile Wilkesville-2-Wilkesville Classic next weekend for $27. Race-on-the-River in Racine Ohio (a non USAT event) is $30. Enough venting, not sure I am in shape for the OUAIA triathlon anyway. Would rather have the money to by plants/flowers/ferns for my wife for mother's day.
On a positive note, I spent 45 minutes on the rollers last night. I now have a few hours on the new saddle (Fizik Antares) and have to say I really like it. I can feel more pressure on my sit bones than with the old stock saddle (and much less pressure on my perineum = no numbness).
