On Sunday I participated in a mini duathlon along with Danielle and Sonya, plus Brittany and Heidi completed a sprint triathlon and sprint duathlon! It was definitely an experience. I've done a few races so far including a 10k and a few 5ks so this was new to me adding another element. The mini consisted of a 2 mile run, 7 mile bike ride, and another 2 mile run. It was at Portage Lake State Park in Akron, Ohio. It was a chilly morning and the even was even delayed 15 minutes since there was too much fog and the swimmers could not see the buoys (Brittany was the lucky one doing the swimming part in our group!) I completed the whole even with Danielle and Sonya so that was a good motivation to keep going and made it more fun for sure! Half of the run was a trail run through the woods and very pretty. The bike ride I was definitely not prepared for it was sooooo HILLY like wow! it was crazy at some parts I could not make my wheels spin and had to walk some of the hills. Overall it was super tough but a good experience, I still think it would be fun to do another with the triathlon part, but I would definitely train more and maybe buy my own bike like a hybrid or something. Also I would love to do it in the summer so the water and weather would be warm! I'm so glad I had my sisters/friend to do this with! I also got my first medal from a race!
