Du the Bear: Sandra, Renee and Lauren

Three ORR athletes raced the Du the Bear Duathlon this last Saturday in Bear Creek Park. This event consisted of a 2 mile run/ 20 mile bike/ 2 mile run.
Sandra Braniff had a great race! Sandra ran 8:49 min/mile pace for the first 2 miles, biked 17.1 mph for the 20 mile bike, and finished it off with a solid run. Overall time was 1:18:10. Sandra's daughter beat her by a minute, which made her proud! :-)
Mother and Daughter, Renee and Lauren Stolen, raced their first duathlon (or race of any kind longer than a 5K) together. Twenty-one year old, Lauren, finished 5th in her age group with a total time of 1:12:54. She ran the first run at 8:25 min/miles and the 2nd running portion of the race at 8:40 pace. She had a super consistent race.

The amazing forty-five year old, Renee, finished in 1:23:15. Renee has been working really hard after snapping her achilles tendon and after recovering from a bike accident. We are super proud of her determination. She is now fully recovered and is in GO mode.

Thanks a Lot!
