    I'm Hooked!

    Well,
    I'm hooked! I just completed my first competition involving a bicycle and it was killer!! It was a perfect day for running/biking. There was a pretty large turnout for the biathlon in Beloit today. It was a 2mi. run/11mi.bike/and another 2mi. run. I don't believe I have ever run two consecutive miles ever! (Sad, I know) The bike portion was 11mi. out in the rural roads. Lots of long hills but they went back down too! The pedaling for a purpose is truly zen like. I'm freakin' stoked. I love biking...and running er. I guess! Man, that was a blast. Many thanks to all the pointers I picked up on this forum. You all rock!

    Duathlon?
    Biathlon is a sport that involves skiing fast and shooting straight.

    Congrats on finishing your first Multi-sport race!

    Thanks for the vodes! The host had this long winded talk brfore the start of the race explaining that the term Biathlon was used to describe the run/bike/run type event at its inception and the term Duathlon didn't manifest until later in its life. Whether its true, I cannot confirm. That's what the shirt says anyway . Thanks again. It was a great first experience with the multi-sport field.
