Subject: Should I claim to be a clydesdale

I know probably a silly question?, but? s????hould I register as a Clydesdale??????????  I have lost 50 pounds and am at 205 consistantley.  ALthough I am consistantley 205, after finishing my long workouts i will often get below the 200 mark.  Should I register as a Clyde or go with the regular folks.

I'm a newbie here myself, but a couple things have hit me in these awesome posts:

1. I'm not the only one, or the heaviest (started at 310) to wake up one morning and think THAT'S IT! NO MORE!!

2. Another member here called himdelf a "SUPER CLYDE" at 256...therefore I too must be "SUPER" at 264.

3. Some have competed at well over 300lbs...proudly!

4. The consensus seems  to be: anyone over 200 is a Clydesdale/Athena.

No one will  fault you for going either way...you'll still be lined up with a SUPR SMILE at that watery start line!

okay that was more than a couple...call yourself what you like, just get in the water!!!

If you are faster than me, don't race as a Clyde  Wink

But seriously.  go for it, it is all about competing where you are at, if you are over 200 when you toe the line, race it...

Race where you think you are.  I plan on registering for Clyde in my events and then hope to have to change to AG by the time the event comes around.

Flip that is exactly what I did.  I started training for my first marathon in June or July can't exactly remember exactly.   Anyways since I have started I have lost 50 lbs and have seemed to settle at about 205 for the past several weeks.  I want to stay above 200, I dont want to get below my 9th Grade weight.  I would look like an olive on the end of a toothpick...I got a big head.  I got a couple weeks before the marathon so I guess I will leave my registration as it is.

Athena is usually over 150 pounds, but can sometimes be as low as over 140 pounds.

Should we take that as Clydes are irregular?  Laughing

I'm guessing that if you are typically at the 205 mark you are safe to register as a clyde.  At the HIM I did in Sept, I dropped over 8lbs.  I know I did the swim at full weight though.  haha

Oops!! My bad!!

I see skinny as well....skinny. So when I thought of "Athena" as "bigger", well I neglected to differentiate between the  sexes.

Sorry!
