Week 3+4 Desert’s Edge Tri Training Recap: Out Sick!

In the early part of week 3, I caught a bug that quickly flatlined me. I tried my best to work through it -- meaning, I worked from home for as much as humanly possible. I tried to stay coherent on work phone calls, and I hope my emails and data analyses made sense. I'm …
