One of the concerns I have covering this shit is, well, from where do I derive my authority on the subject of fitness? I am no expert!
But as I just learned today, I am apparently ranked in the top half of my age group nationally by USA Triathlon, only 916 places behind Andy Potts. I should gain a couple after the score from my latest race is updated. Not that I’m into comparative rating or attachment to outcomes, so trust me, I am as surprised as you are!
Not sure that’s what anyone is looking for in an “expert,” exactly, but still, it’s something.
Update: Make that 866 places behind Andy Potts.
