Rarely in the past have I raced the same race year over year. But being located so close to the Multi-Race triathlon location, it’s hard not to be go back. (Spoiler: They are a sponsor). The duathlon race this year seemed considerably larger than last year, and it was definitely far more competitive. Although I achieved a PR, I didn’t make the podium (4th). The course is unchanged, but there is little need to change when the course works perfectly.
In any case, I had one of the fastest transition times, but I know I can still improve on that. I wasn’t as efficient as I could have been – a little pre-race practice would have helped. But, overall, I’ll take it!
Hopefully next month’s race will be even faster.
