I created a custom cron job and tested on local server, where it needs to run
two times simultaneously and then that custom job is created and scheduled.
why is it like that ?

Because its made to work like this.
It's from Magento documentation
"You must run cron twice: the first time to discover tasks to run and the second time — to run the tasks themselves. The second cron run must occur on or after the scheduled_at time for every task"
