Five o'clock came early that Saturday morning, the seconds seemed to click away double time and the trip from home to Square Lake Park seemed like it may never end.  Then I was there, and the time continued to click away.  I frantically set up my work station as almost 400 participants roamed the race site and transition area.  I was open for business at 6:30am, and customer number one set the tone for majority of the day.  While the line got longer for mechanical help, I set everyone at ease as we did some major surgery on a front brake system for one participant. What I loved seeing as I worked feverishly was the help and support from the athletes to get their bike tires aired up, answer countless questions, and the interaction of strangers, and old friends, alike.  The mechanical work, flat tires, blown tubulars and minor adjustments just kept coming in.  This was a busy race morning, and that is what I was there for....

Burrito Union 5 & 10-Hour Race Report - The weekend kicked off nicely on Friday afternoon with my two Burrito Union 10 Hour Triathlon team mates, Nancy and Matt, coming over to my house to add my bike, camping & triathlon bags to the huge pile in the back of the truck.

The Burrito Union is a unique event in that it does not consist of a single race. It is a continually revolving sprint distance triathlon that repeats as many times as the racers can fit into the 10 hour period or for those whom prefer to enjoy the cookout celebration atmosphere after a good race, as few as one triathlon.*Duly noted that one triathlon is a lot of work!  ....

I am now back to regular training after a few light weeks. The week after Louisville I felt a little better each day but was generally un-ambitious. Could probably have swum and spun a little more but wasn’t motivated to. First run was the Sunday after and it was awful. First ride the next day, Monday, and felt fine. Second run was then Tuesday and that was fine. The week in Wisconsin working with...

Special People...

Julia(Photo L - R - Two of this year's MOY nominees, Sarah Mercer and Julia Weisbecker.)

FEMALE MASTER OF THE YEAR – In 14 years only three women have won this award, Jan Guenther doing so ten times, Heidi Keller Miler thrice and Jeanne Fleck once. Is this the year that someone new takes home the prize? We’ll see.

The MMA Selectors unanimously agreed that the female MOY was one of the hardest categories to figure out. Narrowing the field to four official nominees wasn’t easy....
