On Saturday I participated in my first duathlon. We ran 5k, then biked 15 miles, and then ran an additional 5k. The date of the duathlon snuck up me so I wasn’t as prepared as I would have hoped to have been. Besides snowing or freezing rain,the weather couldn’t have been worse. It was cold. I mean really, really, really cold. It was raining and the wind was blowing pretty hard. I was very nervous and a little irritable before the race.
I didn’t make my goal of two hours. I was the 257th finisher out of 271 participants. But I didn’t stop, walk or give up. I kept going despite the wind or rain. Here’s a link to the results. My race went better than these guys:
Now I’m thinking about the next race!
