Taking a Pause from Competition

The photographs posted of archery tournaments indicate social distancing is merely a suggestion at these events.  At 65 years old I’d like to avoid that asymptotic 28-year-old shedding Covid-19 while standing next to me.

Sure, I can play the odds and expect to win by not getting sick.  Honestly, I suspect I’ve already had the bug.  At this point I simply don’t know whether or not I carry the antibody.

Here’s the thing, if I do catch the Covid-19 I run a greater risk of sharing it with family and friends all over 70 and none in excellent health.  When I suspected Brenda and I had contracted the virus we stayed clear of everyone.  Our symptoms were so mild it is impossible to know for certain without being tested – at this point for the antibody.

So, for now, I am taking a break from competition.
