My First Duathlon!

September 17, 2013 | Comment

On June 23, 2012 I participated in my first duathlon, running and kayaking. I have only kayaked once in my life and that was last summer for a group trip on the Okatoma in Hattiesburg. I decided to give it a shot anyway.

The race was held on the bayfront in Ocean Springs, MS. It was one of the events for the Jackson County Bicentennial Celebration at Fort Maurepas.
Most people brought their own kayaks, which looked pretty serious, and they had several companies there renting out kayaks. I rented one and picked the lightest one I could find since I had to carry it to the water.

The race started with an out and back 2 mile run. I was the first female to hit the water
