Glentress Duathlon #1, 30 November

Time to see if the night-bikeruns in Glentress had sorted me out for the duathlons ! I had no idea how I'd do, or cope with 140 other cyclists/runners squeezing through the gate at the start. Actually not too bad. The cycle came first - 40 minutes of thigh-busting forest trails and paths. I put in all my effort....then had virtually nothing left for the run. 40 minutes later it was all over. But the best part of the event was the prize-giving -Pete Baxter puts in so much effort to this event and it shows. The drive to and from the event was in incredibly beautiful frosty scenery. More info on the event is on the Glentress Duathlon site and some photos of the day (but not the race) are on my Flickr page.
