PR or ER (aka 70.3 World Championship Epic Fail Report)
By Matthew Payne
This got really long. Here's the Cliff's Notes version for people who either don't have the time to read the next several thousand words or who just don't like me that much (both completely understandable):
* Go to Vegas for 70.3 Worlds
* Gamble a bit and play a ton of pinball in the days before the race
* Race day: Swim well, bike OK, attempt to suicide myself on the run

2012 Minnesota Multisport Awards - We had intended to post the potential Performance of the Year nominations next week, but since the Hy-Vee 5150 Championships three weeks back, followed by Ironman Wisconsin and Leadman Epic 250 - Bend, OR, Minnesotans are buzzing, and rightfully so, about Dan's HUMONGOUS win in Des Moines, Michelle's GARGANTUAN win in Madison, and Cathy's BEHEMOTH win in the Pacific Northwest.
So, let's talk Performance of the Year. In that there are two girls' names in the last sentence, let's do them first. (That sentence didn't finish well, did it?)
So you know, the MMA Selection Committee will be discussing whether a single athlete can have more than two nominations in this category. For our purposes here, we'll list only 2-3 Ps per person. This way we won't have to post every race that Ruth Brennan Morrey did this season....
