Friday Fave: Palouse River Duathlon
Next Saturday I will be participating in the second annual Palouse River Duathlon.
It's a really great event consisting of a 2 mile run, 10 mile bike, 2 mile run. I'm hoping to do better than I did last year, but have had some setbacks and will really be happy to line up at the finish line healthy and well.
Here I am before the race began last year:
Smiling, fresh-faced, idealistic and ready to take on the world!
And here I am with about 200 yards until the end of the race:
Anything but attractive, barely upright and gasping for breath and hope that I could indeed finish.
I have no grandiose plans of winning or breaking any land speed records, but just like last year, I do want to push myself and keep going even when it's difficult and I want to stop.
Entries are still welcome, so come on out to Palouse next weekend and we can cheer each other on! Chances are, I know at least one competitor you'll beat!
