From the “It’s never too early to start planning!” camp…
I registered for my first multisport event! Come March 8, 2014, I will be a duathlete – having completed the 2014 edition of USA Productions’ South Bay Duathlon. From the “go big or go home” file, I went for the International distance: 10K run, 40K bike, 5K run (or 6.2, 24.9, 3.1 Miles.) I’m really looking forward to this new challenge.
Training for it will be interesting though. I need to hold on training too specifically for it until maybe after the first of the year because I have a marathon in mid-December that will require my focus after next week’s Foxy’s. Plus, I will need to work the training, and race itself, into my overall training for Big Sur. Still, I am looking forward to it and hopefully doing a few more duathlons…and possibly a triathlon later in the year.
So, major races on the schedule so far for 2014 are:
- March 8: South Bay Duathlon
- April 27: Big Sur International Marathon
- July 27: San Francisco Marathon
…with more calendar to fill in order to keep my race-a-month streak going!
