From Cassie: “I did the Prospect Park Sprint Duathlon this past Sunday and had a blast! I was quite anxious going in but in the end it was so exciting to be in a race that had multiple sports involved. The sprint distance was a 2 mile run, 10 mile bike ride, followed by a 2 mile run and I completed the race in an hour and 15 minutes. I think the race made me realize that I’m stronger than I think I am and I owe this to Crossfit for sure, I think I’ve felt more nauseated during “Fran” than at any given point in this race. I will definitely be doing another one of these and going for a longer distance the next time around. Thanks to my fans (Dickie and Willy) for cheering me on at the end!”
