Carolynn and I recently participated in our first race on our tandem. We have talked about it for years (over a decade to be more precise) but with limited opportunities offered to race our tandem it just never happened as other events took precedence.
Our time of 18:31 did not set any course records but did earn us a nice Gold medal. I'm still working on Carolynn to get a mountain bike tandem. I would really like to participate in an event like the Ouachita Challenge on a tandem. Adventures like that with my wife and family is what I look forward to over the years to come.
In a few short weeks Carolynn will be able to cross off one item off her list. For over 20 years she has watched me race in hundreds of events, many of them triathlons and duathlons. Well come June 1st she will toe the line for her first ever duathlon - the Sedalia Spring Into Summer Duathlon.
