Mt.Banahaw De Lucban Duathlon

January 23, 2016
4K - 25K - 2K

On the foothills of Mt. Banahaw the town of Lucban, Quezon played host to a multi-sport event. There were 136 registered participants and I wasn't one of them but thanks to Mr. Dune Tamayo I got a free slot from one of his friends. 

All smiles after finishing the race

I was hoping for a podium finish but I wasn't even close. I exited transition 1 after 18 minutes. The bike started woefully slow; I usually start the bike leg stupidly fast and slowly but surely slowing down as the race wore on but this time my legs were spent after just 4 kilometers of run agh. It was 1:14 on my stop watch as I exited transition 2. The second run was miraculously fast for about 150 meters and that's it. I saw the front of the pack heading towards the finish line as I was just starting my second run - whoa they're fast. For such a short distance race the gap was really huge. I finished the 4K - 25K - 2K three stage event in 1 hour and 24 minutes. A good gauge of how fit I am right now heading towards NAGT Subic in February. Obviously I have my work cut out for me.

Here are some photos from the town that is 1,500 feet above sea level. Thanks for stopping by. :)
