Do the DU....

Thanks Kerkove....
I like them.
Brent Johnson running the 5k in his cycling shoes. This guy is HARDCORE!!!!

That's green, baby!
Eduardo's Upsidedown Duathlon went off without a hitch today at Camp Ingawanis. Neat event!
Kerkove and Chad Juel won the team competition with Kerkove on the bike and Chad doing the running.... Very fast. Kerkove has posted some pics and has a photostream on Flick'r. Check it out!
Rob "Deerslayer" Houlihan won the individual event. Also very fast.
The event consisted of 2 laps on the 4.6 mile bicycle course through the killer hills of the camp followed by 3.2 or so miles running with another lap on the bike following that. An unusual format? Yes. An interesting event? Hell yeah! Superb! Everyone appeared to be having fun and the weather was awesome!
Brent Johnson, owner of Bike Tech in Cedar Falls decided to register for the solo event about 5 minutes before the race started even though he didn't have any running shoes. No one else in the area had a pair of size 15's but Brent didn't seem to mind. He ran the running portion of the event in his Specialized Carbon MTB shoes. Had a respectable race, too!
A big "Thank you" to Brent for what he did after the race. You know what I'm talking about! You didn't have to do that, but it is certainly appreciated. Thank you!
Eduardo.... You did good, Brother! You need to stop worrying so much! You've had two successful events so far this year and the rest will be fine too. Relax!
Got a 25 mile ride on the Surly this evening with the new smaller Ergon grips. It was good!
That's it for now.
Ride safe.
Peace out, yo!

Thanks Blue.

Ergon grips, sometimes smaller is better.

blue: did you have to get smaller grips because you have girly hands?

Running a 5K in carbon soled bike shoes is hardcore. I am not sure I would have done that.
