    Am I crazy or what???

    Tomorrow I'm doing a duathlon race @ Cherry Creek State Park. Right now its dumping snow and NO they don't cancel the race.

    Should be tons of fun in the snow running and racing my bike (I'm riding my mtn bike) just because there will be snow on the ground. What was I thinking????????????

    I've only done snow on my mountain bike once or twice, given that we don't get much snow in tx.
    Funnily enough, it was not even close to as uncontrollable as i thought

    I suck at running. Racing a bike is not tough for me, but I hate running. At least the running part is first

    Don't worry, you'll smoke them, both running and on the bike!

    Have fun!

    Running isn't too bad as long as it's not on cement. Just don't slip.. Stopping on snow might be hard.

    So on that note. Good luck,

    Smoking during a snow race leads to water. Water and snow leads to slush. slush leads to slippery.

    Go for it, gf! And let us know how it goes!

    Maybe BDG will chime in with a few pointers on duathlons in the snow?
