I was thinking of doing a duathlon in a few weeks (it would have been a triathlon, but the pool is closed). 3 mile run, 12 ride, 3 run. The problem is that I'm a hard-core frugalista, and my frugal side has a hard time paying $40 for something that I can do for free. I'm not going to win any medals. I'd get a T-shirt, but I'd rather spend the money on a floor pump, for example.
