A few weeks ago we ran into MARY BETH TUTTLE, who is now in her early 50s, at Chipotle, the one in Woodbury, not the one by Sam's Club, the one by Noodles. Gosh it was great to see her. There isn't a nicer person in the world that MB. She had a back thing that forced her to give up triathlon after the 2009 season, but she has remained a force in the nordic ski racing community.
Since we have been posting a lot of stuff recently about Minnesota multisport pioneers that are currently off the grid, we'd like to share some of Mary Beth's multisport highlights. She was especially awesome in 2007....

The ninth annual FALL DUATHLON, produced by Mark and his crew from Final Stetch, will take place in pastoral Cannon Falls on Saturday. If you've done this race, you know that is is awesome. If you haven't done it, we think you should sign up right now. LINK Besides, the earlier you knock off some of that winter rust, the better shape you'll be in for all the great races on the May and June calender.
Today we want to share some this race's history. Check out the Top 5s and divisional records:

Collegiate Nationals Race Report - I’ve experienced a lot of triathlon in my short racing career, from small local races to draft-legal junior elite races to the ITU World Championship, but nothing quite compares to USA Triathlon Collegiate Club National Championship. This past weekend, I competed in my second Collegiate Nationals in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Nearly 1,300 athletes and 120 club teams came from all over the country to compete against the best of the best in collegiate triathlon. This is a two-day event that consists of a draft-legal sprint distance race, a non-draft Olympic distance race, and a super sprint mixed team relay race.
The coolest part about this race is the atmosphere. This is the race that every college triathlete around the country trains for each year. This is our opportunity to show the world what happens between our classes and late night study sessions at the library. This is where those 30-hour training weeks and every party you missed because you...
