Quick Duathlon Post

>> Sunday, May 03, 2009

Sorry for the late-coming report from yesterday's duathlon. It's been a hectic weekend! I'll have my full post with lots of pictures tomorrow, but until then, here's my four-point "cliff notes" version of my race:

• Ran strong for the first run, and hit T1 and the start of the bike in about 5th place overall.

• Made a "rookie mistake" during the bike, and quickly ended up back in 40th-45th place overall at the halfway point.

• Got over my dumb mistake, finished the bike OK, and ran hard during the final run to finish in 12th place overall.

• Then, Pharmie and I ran the second run again with Pharmie's aunt, Jen, to show our support - Jen finished her first multi-sport event yesterday!!

Matt, me, Pharmie, Steph, Jen

Back with the full story tomorrow, along with a bunch of photos! Have a good Sunday everyone!

You blew past me after T2...i told you you were going way too fast (i'm the tattooed freak out there and was kidding of course)! Way to finish strong after the bike dibacle (sp)!!

I did hear you laugh out loud! It was a fun race and I'm glad I did that one for my first Duathlon! I have a half marathon the day b-4 gear west du, and I may be heading up to watch the apple Du, but not participating. Are you doing Buffalo?

Geez, double digit placing? I've only done that once--and there were only 18 people in my age group
