This was a great duathlon that I did today, 2 mile run, 10 mile bike, 2 mile run, all “off road”. The bike was mostly rail-trails, but I didn’t gain distance on the group of 4 women doing their first multisport event until we got to the muddy & rutted section of the bike which was back in a field. Had there been more of that, I would have made up even more time on the bike for what I lacked on run.

It was 45 degrees, raining and just kept getting colder. Since I missed winning an age group award by only 1 place (and 10 minutes), I gave myself my own winners prize when I got home. I bought a Nano!
