The “Long” and the “Sprint” of it! St. Malo Conquered!

MIT was represented today at the St. Malo Triathlon/Duathlon by Darren Reimer and Hans Epp.  With the temperature already at 24 deg with 85% humidity at 8am, the day was going to be tough.  Hans hit the road running at 8:45 doing a Long/Olympic Duathlon (5kmrun, 40kmbike, 10kmrun) while Darren waited till 9:30 to start his Sprint Triathlon (750m swim, 20kmbike, 5kmrun).  They exchanged competitive looks twice on the course passing head-on during the bike section as well as the final run with 2 Personal Bests being recorded as the races came to an end.  Darren managed to take minutes off his PB while Hans’ time was automatically a PB as this was the first race and time completing that distance in its entirety.  Great time was had by all including a picnic lunches with “the families” who came to offer their encouragement and support.  See the website for results and standings.  Next event … Pinawa in 2 weeks.  As one of the spoken lines in the movie “Cool Runnings” with John Candy states, “I feel very ‘Olympic’ today”
