We'll it looks like today won't be my first Duathlon. Family circumstances dictate that it shouldn't happen.

There are other Duathlons :)

I did a duathlon once. I did really well on the run, got overtaken by everyone on the bike, then overtook everyone again on the run. I laughed at myself on the bike, I was useless. I doubt I'll ever do another one, but only because I hate cycling and I've no idea what possessed me to do it in the first place.

Which are you doing Mandymoo? This was my one (& only) experience so far:

I have entered a second in November. I think this time I will do what others did and bring a plastic box to keep my shoes dry when they are waiting in the transition area.

Enjoy, Mandymoo.

I ought to think about a duathlon - it's the only way I'm ever going to get to race on a bike - but there are always so many events and so little time.

Got something to say?
