Real Women

It was a big day for the Real Women: It was my first event after rupturing my medial head gastrocnemius in November, and the Wee Red Hen's first ever duathlon. We entered the duathlon at Millbrook and, despite the rain and the cold (there was snow on the hills), we both soldiered on through.

It was short (3.5km run; 10km bike; 1.5km run) but I was happy to complete it without pain, and she was happy to complete it at all! Him Outdoors was there to support and photograph.
