…..and here we go. First multisport event of the year. Not a triathlon, but a duathlon: run 4k, bike 30k, run 4k. This was my first multisport event ever in 2010, and this year, I’m doing it again. It’s a well organized event, the course is challenging, and best of all, the post race food is great.
Now the big question – Am I ready? Well, that’s a little simple. Ready for what? Can I finish it? Of course I can barring any major mechanical failures or injuries. Last year my official chip time was 1h 39m 26s. My way too optimistic goal is a 1:34, of course everything is based on having the exact weather conditions. Last year it was sunny, hot & humid with a light SE wind. This year the forecast is 80% chance of thunder-showers with 30 kph SW winds – total opposite. All I know is my I’m a faster runner than last year, and my biking is about the same but I have a faster bike. I think a more realistic goal would be 1:36.
Anyhow, Mrs. Fat Guy is coming along again to cheer me on, and hopefully it turns out for the better weather wise.
Stay tuned for the post race report.
