Winter BeGone Duathlon Quick Summary

by | |
It was cold, it was windy, it was rainy, and it almost wasn't. Our long course got shortened to a sprint because the conditions were so crappy. I think the lightning and hail before the race scared the race directors (and the rest of us!).

I've never actually done a sprint anything, well, unless you count running a 5K here and there. This race was a good chance for me to see what I can do, albeit in super crappy conditions. I wasn't one bit sad that I wasn't out there for an extra hour.

Because we were all forced to do the short course, I got to see my sister Steph, my brother Matt, Steve, and Borsch at multiple points. Matt and I ran the first leg together. It was so fun to be out there with them all. Steph finished her FIRST duathlon, and our friend Jeremy had one dramatic bike!

Full report to come!

Oh thank you! Where do you get 60 miles in? We left from downtown St. Paul and only put in around 40 I think? Do you head to Stillwater after the trail ends? I would love to find more mileage but wasn't sure where!!

I don't know about you. But, this frickin' weather sucks. Can we please have one teaser day in the 70's? I'm walking around the house in a huge old bathrobe trying to stay warm, 'cause I'm too cheap to turn the heat on anymore!
