February 24, 2009 - NLAA sanctioning update

a very stressful and challenging 6.6k of running today. i think i am going to have to take a couple of days off to get these knees some more rest.

emotionally exhausted as well. lots of matters in my personal and professional lives that are stressful as of late.

the meeting with the NLAA went well. they have indicated their intention to create a policy and/or position paper that will be forwarded to race directors across the province. the recommendation will be that i race without assignment to a sex category; that i not directly compete against males or females; and if this is not possible for whatever reasons, that i be assigned to the female category but be disentitled from winning sex-specific awards. so overall, a good discussion that will hopefully act as a benchmark for other provincial athletic associations and sanctioning bodies.
