Blitz Duathlon

7km Trail Run - 19km Bike - 3 km Trail Run

Details, here.

Strategy going in was to hang on to lead runners (mike) for the first km, then hit the climb easy while the others burn matches, then kill it on the descent. 
Then hope for a wicked bike split to make the difference, and hammer the final 3km "sprint". 

Well, that's pretty much was how it went down, except I couldn't make up enough time on the 20k bike, and the lead runners were much faster. 
Cool-down run in the final leg because there was nobody within a minute, before or after. Finished 4th overall, but since the top 3 were all in my Age Group and they separated those, I still got a prize for 1st place in my AG!
