Just Du It

I competed this morning in the Lonestar Pacesetters' "Just Du It" duathlon in Harlingen. It was a 5K run, a 17.2 mile bike ride, and a 5K run. I finished second overall in the male category and only got beat by one two-person team. In the first 5K, I ran about 17:50, then I averaged 20.4 mph on the bike for just under 51 minutes, then ran about 19 minutes for the last 5K. The guy who won completely destroyed me on the biking portion and had a good 5 or 6 minute lead going into the final run, so there was no hope of catching him. I had a lot of fun and felt really good about the race because it makes me feel like I'm getting back into decent shape. Now the training for my February marathon continues.
