What are others ( the slightly crazy ones) doing?
One a nice cool morning, they are up and about at 6 am, packing their cycles and helmets onto the back of a car, and taking off to some backroads.
Once there, they race for 2 kms.
Then they cycle for 20kms.
Then they race ( or, in some cases, walk) 5 kms again.
All for the fun of it 🙂
The above, for the benefit, of you-all, is what is called a Duathlon.
And why I am going and doing this I don’t know – but I was the only girl there, and damned I would be if I gave up, so I ignored my heart that was beating like some African drum-beat, and finished the gruelling practice Duathlon.
At the end of it, my reward – applause from the HBC gang, and a Bacardi Breezer!
< And then, this just came in on the email from the Little sister – something called the Badwater Marathon in Death Valley – 135 miles in 130 deg F heat. Nopes, this one I can never fathom doing.>
