Prairie Punisher Duathlon: Finished

sitting here having a protein shake after a heckuva saturday morning. my buddy joel and i (with great coaching/encouragement/photography by Pa Woolard) finished the Prairie Punisher Duathlon (5K, 27.5K Bike, 5K) and had a blast. this is my first official duathlon, though we frequently pair runs and rides during training.


we either looked like teammates or dorks, with our matching Sunflower Outdoor gear and Cannondale roadies. style aside, i beat my goal time by 7 minutes and to my surprise, knocked off the final 5K in about 23 minutes, which is fast for me even if I hadn't already run one, and biked 27K.

Those shirts definitely aren't tight enough. I have no idea how you were able to finish...

Congrats!

That's a great finish. I'm sad to say that your final 5K is better than my standard 5K pace.

I was hoping to participate in the Fat Tire Dualthon, 2 Mile Trail Run - 10 Mile Off-Road Mountain Bike - 2 Mile Trail Run, but never got into the training for it.

Are you going to participate in the Waddell & Reed Kansas City Marathon?

I'm tempted to give the 1/2 a shot, but I'm not up for the full.
