I did it! I participated and finished my first Duathlon this morning! 2 mile run; 10 mile bike; 2 mile run. I felt and feel great. The only thing I wasn’t prepared for was the run, which was mostly trail. That’s my own fault, I never check out the course or read the description before any race. I guess I’m wild like that! Overall, what a great time. I’m ready to add swimming and try triathlons this summer. If you’re considering trying a Duathlon, do it! You don’t need fancy equipment. I rode my husbands hybrid bike, and was absolutely fine. Challenge yourself! You can accomplish anything! I almost forgot, shout out to my friend/neighbor Jen. She placed 2nd in her age group. She was not aware of the trail run either! She rocked it!
