we are still here

and I think Tanya Aldred makes a fair argument in this post about transgender in sports. The argument that most of the transgender are not winning in the women category is, in my view, a weak argument. Let them have their own category and the best of them can win in that category. Creating a category shouldn’t be so hard.

But maybe Brian is right. It is the validation they are looking for and this will dampened by creating a category for trans. The debate will have ended much quicker and who wants this anyway? Let’s muddy the waters. Have transwomen compete in women category.

I know this debate will be with us for a long time to come.

Just so stories

As of this writing the Nairobi governor, Sonko, has been impeached and the city will have to go to by election to have a new governor. What I am yet to understand is how a populist with little to no education nor experience in governance could have been elected to lead the most populous city in this nation.

This has been my most active year in sports. I managed 9500km on bike, 500km of runs and another 30km of hikes. I have managed to get a sports related injury, if you leave out the bike crashes.

This year long pandemic should just end.
