Event comments:

Packet pick up was a disaster. They had it in 2 locations. The first location ran out of bibs and had to wait on more. They also ran out of medium t-shirts. The other location had no large OR medium shirts. That's just ridiculous.

I'm curious about the 'don't increase your run by more than 10% per week' rule. Is there a minimum mileage under which this doesn't apply?

How should I go about training for the marathon while also building base in the other two events? Doing this seems like it's causing me to break the 10% rule in running.

Yes, the Dual is a little heavier than Cervèlo’s high end counterparts. But…the price is within reach of the masses and it still incorporates all of the design features that make a Cervèlo special.
