Dustbuster Duathlon Tomorrow

Tomorrow will be my first race of 2010! Yes, it's early and nobody is in shape yet. That's why it's called the "Dustbuster". It will bust the dust right off you bike, your body, whatever! This duathlon is short: a 1.5 mile run, 11.8 mile bike, and 1.5 mile run. People come from all over the south to participate with super nice bikes. Last year my bike had a kickstand. When I came in from the bike someone had taken my spot on the rack, so I put just popped out that sweet kickstand and off I went. Well, I removed the kickstand this summer so I will have to be a little bit faster this year to keep my spot on the rack.

Last year I ran 9:22 pace, biked 15.2 mph, and ran 9:30 pace. This year I hope to do a little bit better. I have certainly put lots of running miles on my legs this fall, so maybe that will help me. I'll let you know.


  1. I'm in awe of ladies like you...Triathlete wow! I wish sometimes I could run. Anyway great job, I hope your race on the 3rd goes well!
    Happy and blessed New Year to you!

  2. Was there ice for your race? I cannot imagine *willingly* being outside in those conditions, but talked to a clerk up here (SE Wisconsin) who did a 5K run New Year's Day morning in 10 degree lungs pack it up just thinking about it!

    I stopped in from the Company Girls, in case you were wondering ;^)
