Team Sports Bistro to battle at Pier Duathlon

Finally, tomorrow will be the first race in 2010 where Team Sports Bistro (East Coast division) will have some friendly intra-team competition!  Just this week, Rob from NJ found us the Pier Duathlon in Long Branch, NJ.  Put on by the Sandy Hookers Tri Team, this flat course features a 2 mile run, 9.5 mile bike, and 3 mile run along the Jersey Shore.  Even shorter than our normal sprint triathlons, this race will be a "balls to the wall" all-out effort.  We've mostly been training for long distance races (Half Ironman Triathlon, Half and Full Marathons, 100 mile bike rides) so this speed won't come easy. The kicker is that none of us have done a duathlon before so pacing and strategy will be made up on the fly.  And in a race this short, the winner is usually whoever screws up the least! 

Look for Mike to set a new Team Sports Bistro running pace PR, Ton to show off his blazing fast transitions, Rob to beat his buddies from the office, and Lindsay to compete for some women's prize money.  Good luck Team Sports Bistro!  Be sure to check back tomorrow to see how it all goes down...
