Last Saturday I completed my first duathlon, the Out for Blood Duathlon in Mount Pleasant. It was a 5K run followed by a 20K bike ride. I timed myself at 24:13 for the 5K and my total finishing time was 1:12:32, so I beat my goal of 1:15:00.
I finished first in the 30-39 male mountain bike division, but now that results are posted, I see there was only one other guy to beat. I finished 5th out of 13 males (just over 5 minutes behind top time) who rode a mountain bike, so not bad.
It was a lot of fun! I’m looking forward to doing some other 5K runs and duathlons this summer.
