Personal: Duathlon

Me in the transition zone during the recent Rochester Spring Classic duathlon (biking and running).


I passed and was passed by people of every age and gender. One lesson from attending these events has been that you can't judge a book by it's cover very often.

In fact, in the home stretch of the final run, I was following a 50 something lady and following me was a long-legged undergrad who works at a bike shop and is very fit. One would have expected the order to be reversed just by looking (I'm in the middle either way). The fifth fastest overal time--among something like 200 people--was a 60 something dude. He must have been the guy who yelled "Commin' through whipper-snapper" on the first bike leg. :)>
