Bringing Home My First Apple....and Paycheck!

It's official, multisport season is up and running!  My first race was the Sartell Apple Duathlon. Prior to injury, I had intended to participate in the individual category. However, I decided to recruit a teammate and participate in the women-women team division. My friend Becky took on the challenge of participating in her first multisport event!  We dubbed ourselves "The Wreckless Moles".  She was the runner and I was the cyclist!  We each did our part and ended up with 3rd place in the womens division!!!!  Therefore, we each took home a coveted granite apple and our first race paycheck ($50) for a podium finish!!  Becky also won an aero Giro bike helmet during the door prizes. I guess it's time for her to invest in a bike! ;)

Becky did some amazing running and race day was a blast with a friend!  Not only was I excited to participate in an event again (after canceling my last 4), I proved to myself that I am still somewhat competitive on the bike!  A great confidence boost after an injury!
