After a fairly laid-back training week, I decided to do a local duathlon to shake out the body after last weekend’s race and get ready for the next block of training leading up to Duathlon Long Course Nationals. For a very small race, the event organizers did an outstanding job with the LCCM/Du-Molish Hunger Duathlon in Lebanon, PA. And the sponsors and volunteers were top-notch!! Add to that perfect weather, awesome competitors, and THE BEST cheering section a girl could have – it was a WIN all around! Thank you to the Wolgemuth & Ilus clans for cheering me on all throughout the race and getting some great action shots!
The run course was ideal – a nice FLAT loop through paved trails within a park felt great after last weekend’s hills! The bike took you through quiet country roads with a suprising climb or two to mix it up. I was the first Overall Female and the 5th Overall Finisher. I won a very cute pair of Oakley sunglasses courtesy of Bouquet Mulligan DeMaio Eye Professionals. Ironically the shades are black with specks of gold – just like the Keystone Elite logo 😉
It was also the perfect race for me to try out my new bike position, and I am happy to say I think I’m on the right track! Not only did I feel more comfortable during Saturday’s race, but also on Sunday I headed out for 53 miles to make sure it felt good over a longer distance, and it felt great! Amazing what a few little tweaks can do! Now I’m excited to see how I can build from here!
