Sunday was just about a perfect day to get out and do a race, and the Xterra North Shore Duathlon was my choice for the day. It’s one of the events in the Run the North Shore Series, and it took place in the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve (LSCR). The atmosphere was very casual and low stress, and Keith (from North Shore Athletics) had a fun race route planned out that athletes of all abilities could challenge themselves on. By the 9am start time, the temperature had already cracked into double digits and the sun had come out. A few minutes before the start, I began to think that I might even have to worry about hydration while out there.
