Mission in Motion ladies Du the Lakes!

On Saturday May 12 six Mission in Motion ladies competed in the Du the Lakes Duathlon in Fayetteville, NY.  Many of them competed in the event last year, so this was a great race to aim for improved times and personal records.

Angela, Dana, Tiffany, Delana, and Marsha before the start of the Du the Lakes Duathlon!

The course begins with a flat 3 mile trail run, followed by a 20 mile time trial (with a challenging finish climb), and ends with a repeat of the 3 mile trail run.  Sounds simple, right?  Well I challenge you to whiz through that second run without hurting a bit!  Ouch.  But we all made it through!

Delana coming to the transition area!

Congratulations to Dana, Delana, Marsha, Tiffany, Angela and Stacey (competing as the Mission in Motion team!) for braving the long race on the warm spring day.

Each of the ladies who competed last year were able to see improvement!  Tiffany, Marsha, and Delana each improved their times from last year considerably.  Congrats to the MIM duo of Angela and Stacey on their team finish!  And a big congratulations to Dana Cooremen who had a great second place finish in her age group in her debut duathlon!  I was able to squeak by as the third place in the 25-29 age group.

Delana and Dana, 3rd and 2nd in their age group!
Congratulations to all of the finishers.  Great job to Chris Jones of the RUUD Racing Team!  He won his age group and took 9th over all.  We cannot wait to Du the Lakes again next year!
