How to Stop Sucking...

Jesse Thomas’ three-step plan to conquering all the stuff you suck at.

Unless you’re Ryan Gosling from the movie “Drive,” you probably have a weakness or two. I’ll tell you that I am no Ryan Gosling. I don’t own a leather jacket, I drive a Prius and there are tons of things I could work on that would make me a better person.

Most of us try to work on our weaknesses at least once a year, either with New Year’s resolutions, or in the case of us athletes, new season resolutions....

I’m kicking off the 2014 season at the Falls Duathlon again this year. I haven’t sorted out all my local races yet but I know I will be joining Final Stretch for the Falls Du at the end of April and Rochesterfest in June. Falls Du has been a fun, low key way to start the season for the last two years. I love that the first run is only two miles and that...

Vamos Chica! Andale!

Ironman Los Cabos Race Report - IMs are such a blur of little moments you recall and slowly piece together, yesterday was a HOT, sweaty, and beautiful blur of memories, here are a few to share...

 
I loved hearing "Vamos Chica, Bueno Chica, and Vamos Vamos Vamos" yelled at me all day.
 
There was a language/product barrier with the sweet woman who was my T1 helper and she smeared a 1/4 of my container...

Rockin' the Baja...

im-logo.gifMTN congratulates Chaska's SUZIE FOX, who kicked off her 2014 tri season with a great performance last Sunday at Ironman Los Cabos on the tip of Mexico's Baja Peninsula. Her time was 10:40:35, which placed her 6th overall among amateur women and 2nd in her 30-34 AG. The clocking is only two minutes off her personal best (10:38:38), set at Ironman Wisconsin in 2012. In Madison, Suzie enjoyed late season fitness and didn't have to contend with heat, yucky roads and suspicious food and water, stuff that is just part of the deal when one races in Mexico.

We've asked Suzie, who has been one of Minnesota's most successful and decorated multisporters since 2009, to file a race report. Her words will appear on MTN tomorrow.

Here is her IM Los Cab / IMOO split-comparision below:  ...

Emergent...

olivia-tahoe.gifThe outdoor season is almost upon us. This is the time of year that the MTN Guys like to predict stuff, like who is going to totally rock. Here are a few athletes that we think will kick serious butt in 2014:

OLIVIA BAGNALL (photo) - We truly believe that this girl is special. Runner-up for Rookie of the Year in 2013, she won two races in course record time. Ranked 11th last year, we expect her to make Team MN this time around.

DENNIS DANE - Dennis is what we call a "lapsed" star. After four years --2006 to 2009--of impressive performances, Dane dropped out of sight. It had something to do with having babies and starting his own business. He returned to racing in 2012 and his results were good, albeit not quite the stuff that leads to placement on Team Minnesota. Last year, though, he...
