I took my Mom’s advice and did my own little biathlon Sunday. I left my house and… ran 3.1 miles. I had to do a lap around the block because miscalculated the miles. I did the biathlon almost in exactly the same time I thought I would. 36 minutes for the run and about 50 minutes for the ride. I never pushed really hard until near the end of the bike ride. My knees bothered me a bit after the run, I found I couldn’t push nearly as hard after the run but I still did the ride about the speed I expected.
My total time is 1 hour and 29 minutes so that would have put me very close to last in most age groups, but not last. I’m certain the miles are very close to the Colorfest Biathlon, but I bet the Anna route would be much hillier.
