This year I was honored to be on the selection committee for the Minnesota Multi-sport Awards (MMA's). Minnesota has a rich talent pool in triathlon and duathlon and it was great to see so many deserving athletes recognized by their peers for hard work and excellent racing. The awards night was held at Gear West, where the highlight was WWII and Korean War veteran, Navy Cross recipient and 90-94 age-group triathlete, Bob Powers giving an amazing talk and reminding us all of what true heroism, work, discipline, teamwork and courage really involve.

ED. Last week we got a couple of emails from triathlete/bodybuilder Walt Johnson, who is in his 60s and races in a Speedo. While this is to be discouraged for most sixty-genarians, Walt is an exception to the rule because he is a total stud, and a very, very cool guy.

This morning Pro-Triathlete Andy Potts posted something about how you need to love to train.
It said; “Love to train, Everyone loves to race. You gotta love to train. The daily quest for self improvement and the constant drive knowing that you can and will get better.”
That quote simply made me come alive!! Because as many of us I love to race I truly love all about racing. Seeing my friends in transition, the excitement and thrill of competition and that taste of success!
But in order for us to expierence all of those things we must train and we must find passion and love in training. The no glory hours spent in your...
