Race Report:

This was a small, but well supported duathlon (5k/32k/5k) in Virginia Beach on Saturday Nov. 18. They also had a 10-mile run. The morning was cool and there was a some wind, but it didn't factor much in the race.

I am not a sprinter, so 5k runs can be tough for me, but I was pleased with my times at 24:44 for the 1st 5k and 25:16 for the second.

As for the bike, I felt like I was sprinting the whole time and wanted to break an hour, but ended at 1:05.06, averaging 19.1 mph. I really want to learn to go faster on the bike!

They provided some really good chili after the race, which was great for a cool day.

This is the first multi-sport event that I have placed in my age division, which really surprised me, but it does feel good.
