Today's race was at Watermelon Park in Berryville, VA. It was a 7.2 mile bike ride, with a 5.5 mile run, followed by a 1.7 mile tube ride down the Shenandoah River. This year's attendance was smaller, but the DM turnout was larger. So, I was looking forward to it.
Of the three years I have done this race, today's weather was the best. Low 70's with low humidity and a breeze. The last two years have been HOT and very humid.
We're off! Everyone took off so quickly. Katie S. was flying and quickly took the lead. I felt like I was pedaling faster than the people in front of me, but was loosing ground. I'm not on the bike much, so I need to learn to be in better gears at different stages.
I got off the bike three different times to walk it up hills. I just decided it was better to do that and save energy for the run portion. While I was walking the bike, I was pretty much keeping the same pace as the people who were biking it.
Really enjoyed those downhill sections! The wind felt so good!
