Saturday morning - Race Day - 6:00 am
We stood half mounted on our bikes in the back of the last corral behind the start line. My husband had his eyes closed and though to on-lookers it would have appeared that he was relaxed and just in his zone, I knew he was secretly praying that we wouldn

Last February I won the golden ticket. Thee golden ticket. The ticket so coveted that in the past one woman actually showed up at the race posing as a chosen participant.

My husband and I had entered our names as a team into the lottery for the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race. When I had received the electronic acceptance I was ....

Sometimes I'm dropping huge chunks of time in training and doing workouts I couldn't have seriously considered just a....

Treadman Duathlon VII - The original Treadman Du was staged in the unincorporated community of Douglas, which is just a few miles north of Rochester. Home to almost 50 people, it has a saloon and, we're not making this us, a famous drinking fountain. The folks in Douglas must be a thirsty bunch.
The race stayed in Douglas for three years, then moved further north to the town of Pine Island, which is home to...
