Duathlon

Today Dad, Scott and I raced the Headwaters Trail Duathlon hosted by Janet Edwards and the CTC. I started off running with Dad and we didn't really want to kill ourselves because the bike course was very hilly and it was very windy. So we both were running in 3rd and 4th place until the first transition. I put on my cycling shoes and did a cyclocross remount and started the hilly bike loop. I was first place out of T-1 and I was still maintaining the lead after I finished with my bike. The last run was hard. It is a weird feeling when you jump off your bike and start running. But after about a mile or so, I was back in my groove. I ended up finishing 1st overall in 1:22:49, which was a course record. So I felt really good about that. Dad finished 2nd with a great time of 1:23 and Scott finished 5th, and this was his 2nd or 3rd mulisport race. Awesome day today and looking forward to eating some good Easter food, since we are having Easter Dinner tonight. Dad, Scott, and I are headin out to Middlefield in the morning for the Roubaix ride.

Late.
