Earlier today, I raved about my recently acquired cycling knowledge (and the necessities for riding!). Tomorrow, I’ve apparently entered myself into a Duathlon.
Let me explain.
I’m registered to run the Lawyers Have Heart 10K, for the second year in a row. The first round was nothing near a PR; in fact it was one of the most humid races to date (then I decided to run in Annapolis at the end of August. Brilliant, that is me), and I had come off of a week of traveling for a family funeral. Great recipe for success, no?! Well, it ended up being a fun experience because we had an amazing brunch in Dupont immediately following, as per tradition. Anyway! In a sense, I enrolled again for some sort of redemption? Or just to add to my list – which is creeping closer to race #24!
We’ll talk about that later.
In addition to what will feel like a “quick” race (compared to Sunday’s 13.1), D and I have decided to ride our bikes there and back! It’s a mere 2 mile ride from House-t0-Waterfront (Georgetown), so it seemed like the obvious thing to do. Then, someone pointed out that something of a “Duathlon“. And, I thought, Hey! That’s a first. So, tomorrow will be my first UNOFFICIAL Duathlon, and maybe one of these days I’ll actually do the real thing (any tips, Sassy? 🙂 ).
I’ll be back over the weekend with a recap! If anyone else is doing this run, let me know!
On a somewhat related note, the Official race photos from Sunday’s 1/2-marathon are in! Anne posted hers earlier, and I decided I’d jump in on the action. I’m not quite as race-photogenic ( 😉 ), but I did get some shots that could be filed under “somewhat decent” this time around! In other words, they don’t all scream “It was 90 degrees out there!!” or “I’m EXHAUSTED, please remove the camera, thankyouverymuch”….
Happy weekending! Good luck to any other racers!
