Race: Webster Duathlon Race #1
Date: March 12, 2006
This Webster Duathlon was more than just a chance to get out and push ourselves through a couple of run segments with an additional bike leg tucked in for good measure. It was a clear opportunity to race without racing. To enjoy the company of friends instead of enjoying the feeling you get from redlining your pace.
Jordan came out to watch the event and was happy to see how much we were enjoying ourselves. The same can't be said for the rest of the players out on the course. In fact, as we ran at a leisurely conversational pace (6:45 - 7:00 min per mile) we were given some pretty ugly stares from those we passed.
It was a good run/bike/run and though Philip and I didn't set any records, it will be remembered as the duathlon when we were able to talk about all things unrelated to the race: before, during, and after crossing the finish line.
