Apple Duathlon 2008: More Photos and Official Results

>> Monday, May 26, 2008

Here’s how I fared this past Saturday at the Apple Duathlon:

• 97 out of 269 overall
• 63 out of 233 in amateur competition
• 6 out of 15 in age group

• 18:47 5K run at 6:03 pace - 37 overall
• 1:00 T1
• 1:08:03 33K bike with 18.1 mph ave - 159 overall (ouch)
• 1:02 T2
• 19:34 5K run at 6:18 pace - 26 overall (sweet!)

1:48:25 final finishing time (PR by 6:05!)

Jeez, ya think my biking needs work? I suppose it would have been good to get in a ride or 2 in the last 4 weeks (seriously, my bike computer still had my time from the Winter Begone Duathlon on it when I cleared it before this past weekends race). Right now I’m really in “marathon training mode.” Once Grandma’s Marathon is in the bag, I’ll be working on that shitty bike time. For serious.

Here are some photos from Apple’s website that show Matt and I starting:


You can see my homemade achilles warmer,
and Matt is barely visible right next to my head


I’m on the right, and Matt’s in the navy top behind me
(nevermind my moose knuckle...)

In another interesting note, if you do a Google search for “apple duathlon photos,” three images pop up at the top. Two of them are from my race report in 2007, and the third is an ass:


I don’t know what to make of this...

Anyway, if you haven’t already read it, my full Apple Duathlon report was posted yesterday, so scroll down to check it out. Tomorrow, I have a long run scheduled. We’ll see how the left achilles holds up.

I never knew what a "mooseknuckle" was until you schooled me. Maybe I should have stayed ignorant. Congratulations on a great race! And for Pharmie, please shave those legs!!!

Seriously, I've never seen so much room between bikes before. Glad to hear you're running well with the Anchilles thingy!
