An Intimate Event...

Event Coverage - The first of this year's OptumHealth Performance Indoor Tris (Jan. 22) was an intimate event, drawing 14 participants, all of whom made friends, got a great workout and later went out for pancakes.
The second OHP event, which was staged at their Eden Prairie facility last Sunday, was even intimater. Nine people registered and seven eventually participated. Our guess is that they all enjoyed the experience even though Coach Kris, who is a total hoot!, was in San Diego doing unspecified, yet vitally important stuff.
Here are the results and some Facebooky stuff about some of the participants.

Going Off Course - Waconia teacher / baseball guy / triathlete who doesn't dive very well, Dan Chies (pronounced "Chess;" it's a Castilian deal), has big calves and small ears, which he claims are features that chicks really dig. Also, he used to be about 50 pounds heavier than he is now, a condition he remedied by becoming an addicted triathlete.
Dan, 29, is in a relationship right now, which means that he's not married yet and thus still lives kinda like a college student. If he does get hitched it is likely that his spousal unit will insist that he put his laundry away in a timely fashion and, for godsakes, stop drinking out of the carton.
Dan's taste in music is rather eclectic, featuring hard metal and belligerent hip hop, though it does not include country. When researching his musical preferences we landed on "10 Years'" website. Heretofore unfamiliar with their stuff, we were soon blown away by "Beautiful," a brilliant slam on societally encouraged vanity, and the awesome "Wasteland," which deals with ....
