First Race?
« on: May 09, 2018, 08:33:40 AM »
Do you remember your first race?

My first race was a local duathlon. It was a 2 mile run, 5.5 mile bike, and a 2 mile run. It was 3 years ago today that I raced it. I remember being very scared of the whole thing, not knowing what to do. I rode a mountain bike and I know my transitions were just about 3 minutes for each one. I had a great time at that race and it really kick started me into the sport that I love to do now. Luckily, I dont remember if I had any real newbie mistakes..  like going out on run 2 with my bike helmet on or forgetting to tie my shoes or anything like that, so I guess I did alright.

What was your first race?

Many 5k's over the years and I used to bike off and on.  Then I decided I wanted to get into triathlon.  I started swim training, which was miserable and a topic for another conversation.

Anyway, in preparation for my first triathlon I did a duathlon as well.  They are great for training, but there is something I loath about running twice, I would much rather swim.  Unfortunately, the first triathlon I did was changed over to do a duathlon since the water portion was closed due to bacteria!  :o
