three bears duathlon 1/28/07

Conditions: Foggy
Terrain: Hilly
Spirits: High
It was a great day for the siclistas who entered last sunday's duathlon in El Sobrante. No fog or hill can slow them down. Except for a dead car battery when Frank forgot to turn off his headlights during the entire race.
It all started with a 2 mile run... chit-chatting and following a group of girls. Then it got down to business on a very strong bike ride. We passed around 10-15 riders on the bike leg. I confess... there was always the temptation of drafting.

Frank made a valiant effort but unfortunatley had a flat about 400 yards from the transition area. When we came in for the bike to run part, there were maybe 12 people ahead (I counted the bikes). We more or less maintained that all the way to the finish. Not bad for weekend warriors. And the best part was we all got medals for the best in "tuhogan." (skewering?)
Anyone for some pinoy style barbeque?

Guys, you look good with your dark blue t shirts, with all the medals. Is that Frank with you or someone else that clone him? Duathlon is another name for biathlon? Anyway,good spirit guys, in our status as "siclista afficionado" it is not how you win or loose but how play the game. In your case, you finish and cross the line. You never gave up.From Monsieur Madonelemond "Esprit De Corps".
