Andrew Bolton checks in from the Age Group World Championship

I’m just getting settled back at home after a week in Edmonton for the Age Group World Championships. I had been planning on doing this race since July 2013 after my 2’nd place overall at the Toronto Triathlon Festival. Edmonton was my first “big” race, meaning my first ever out of province race, and my first ever World AG Champs. I was really hoping for a great race, and my build and taper going in were solid. Unfortunately this race gave me another first; my first ever DNF.

I flew into Edmonton a week in advance of my race (to adjust to mild altitude and surroundings) with the rest of my family coming along as well. We stayed at a recently renovated truck stop (Yellowhead Motor Inn), which was clean and very affordable (although being right beside a highway and train-yard was a bit annoying).
