Nashville Du Run Run


Note to all,

Multi-sport athletes are studs.  People that train and race in duathlons and triathlons have my kudos now and forever.

I ran the Nashville Du Run Run this past Sunday morning.  I can't think of a better excuse to miss church.

"So where were you Sunday morning?  ... Sleep in?"

"Actually I ran two miles in 90 degree weather, hopped on the bike for a 10 miler, then decided to top it off with another two mile run in the aforementioned weather.  Which, by the way, climbed to 95 by the time I was finished.  So no... I did not sleep in."

It should also be noted that 7 out of every 10 Sundays, I am in fact probably sleeping in.

My goal was to finish the race in under 1:00 hour.  Thinking I would run an 7:30 per mile for 4 miles and ride the 10 miles in 30 minutes.

I ran the first two miles at 6:55 pace, finished the bike in 30:44, and ran out of gas for the last two miles at an 8:15 pace.  I finished 4th in my age group and 51st overall.  Check out the results here.
