Wilkes-Barre Duathlon

Post by twal on Sun Jun 15, 2014 7:43 pm

I competed in my 10th Wilkes-Barre triathlon this morning (11 year old race). It's a 5K run, 16 mi bike and 5 k run. Today each run was about a quarter mile longer with an extra small hill because of construction. It's one of my favorite races and one I like to focus on it. I'm a mediocre runner and mediocre biker which makes me a half-fast duathlete.

My time was only 1:52 but I came through the second run smoother than usual and passed a few people. I was 61st out of 90 and actually beat two relay teams. My pace as close as I can figure for the uncertified distance was about 8:25/mi, then 17.3 mph and 8:30/mi. I got second out of four in my 60-64 age group.

The weather was near perfect--cool, dry, minimal wind. If you want to compete in a nice, small duathlon, this is a good one.

On reading this, I see my write-ups aren't as great as Echoguy.

It's a great write up as far as I'm concerned Tom and very respectable times running and on the bike. WELL DONE!
