One Tough Cookie

Cold front cuts annual duathlon into 5k race Sunday.
Despite temperatures in the thirties, rain and wind on Sunday morning, about 83 women completed Sunday’s Tough Cookie Duathlon at Copperas Cove’s South Park. However, due to weather and road conditions on Sunday morning, the event became a 5K race and the decision was made to cancel the 10-mile bicycle race portion of the event. “I got together with the race committee and the race timer, and we decided it wasn’t safe with the wet road and the  wind,” said Tzatzil LeMair, race coordinator. “We have a lot of beginners and some of them are nervous.”
