I ran out of time for my last post but here are some interesting numbers to consider:
This year at Wildflower Long Course there were 55 Pro Men, 21 Pro Women. There were 1,328 male age groupers and 453 female age groupers. At Kona in 2008 there were 43 Female Pros and 67 Male Pros, 457 female age groupers and 1,241 male age groupers. Quite the RATIO!
LADIES! Get out there and RACE! Everyone knows we have a higher threshold for pain anyways.
