Great Race!

I’ve got a team for the Great Race in Auburn. The race consists of a 10k run, a 20 mile bike, and a 4 mile kayak. Guess which one I’m going to do?

I figure I can do a 4 miler in about 40-45 minutes, as long as it doesn’t get too windy. Last year, 45 minutes would put me in the top 10, but I believe we’re going to get more members of the BayCreek team so I’m not going to count on that. But I’m going to give it a damn good try.

The team I’ve formed is called “Gasping Geezers”. I haven’t met the other two in person, and probably won’t until race day, but they sound like a fun group.

  1. Bit of a mix of units there, with kilometres for the run and miles for the others. I suppose it’d have to be statute miles on land and nautical miles on the water?

  2. No, most kayakers and paddlers here think in terms of statute miles. It’s really only runners who are enlightened enough to think in metric, at least for race distances – they still talk about their minutes/mile pace.
