Duathlon National weekend

The Duathlon National is my first multisports race of the season and is also my first race as an age group from 30 -34. I am doing this race many reasons:

1. $$$$ was decently and they give you a USAT National Championship Backpack, National Championship technical shirt, Commemorative Finisher pint glass
USAT National Championship Hat. Plus all the amenities that races have.

2. Support my DC tri club to try to win club championship

3. To see my level of fitness

4. Try not to finish last place on my age group (like last year) and improve my time from last new years

The last 1 depends of the quality of the competitors at my age group. as you can see in the picture below last years result judge by yourself the quality of the participants and you see why I was last.

In general my level of fitness is better this time of the year compare to last 1.

They say the improve the bike course as last year 1 was extremely technical and the weather was really bad and you have a lot of bad or really bad times on the bike like mine.

The weather should not be an issue as is predicted to be in the high 80’s

I will be heading down there on Saturday after noon and will be twittering and twitpic the most important events during the weekend.

The Coach is doing the race so will be heading down there together and since his wave is like 90 minutes before mine he will be able to watch me finish the race so that will be really helpful for me

Hope everybody have a great weekend
And good luck to all the people racing this weekend
