The Black Locust

The Black Locust Off-Road Duathlon is this weekend. Not really ready for it as my running form sucks right now. Cycling form is fine, but my running is not coming along too well. The last couple of times I ran last week, I got all dizzy and felt faint. I don't know what is going on. When I cycle or swim I am fine, but when I run I get this funny light headed feeling after about a mile or so. Maybe I am just not meant to run....

I got an email back from the promoter, John Montgomery, and he said the trails at SAC River are muddy, but ridable. What the heck does that mean? Anything is ridable right? The event starts with a 4 mile trail run on the Ritter Springs trails. Then we head out for 12 miles of mountain biking. The outer trails of SAC will be used for the MTB portion. SAC River has a lot of rocks so even with the recent flooding that they received down in Springfield the course should not be too bad. I think I am going to ride my single speed because I want to save my Anthem for next weeks Ouachita Challenge.

Spoke Pony! You won't need worry much about that running form or mud.
