Stealth Duathlon (Race Report)

Well, how shall I start?
Wait, oh, I know: Wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind wind .

It was windy; get it? Gusts up to 35 miles per hour. Blowing on me on the run, on the bike (at one point, I was practically going backwards) I had a pretty good run, actually. I did the same pace that I had done at my last race, (11.5 minute mile maybe? But considering the wind, I think I've improved. It was in my face going in, and unpleasantly at my back coming back. On the bike, it was a crosswind, so I got it coming and going.

Results: I finished, was not last overall, and got 3rd place in the Athena division.

I'd planned to get a T-shirt that said, "Let me win; it's my birthday" but didn't have the chance. Happy Birthday to me!

Even though I was in awful shape in 2016 I was still stubborn and foohardy...so I spent a year running down whatever fitness base I had left...
