HOLT Race Report: Bad Voodoo continues
By Kortney Haag
I love this race and was looking forward to it all week long. I knew the weather was going to be warm but I thrive in the warm weather. I would much rather it be 90 degrees than 75. I also knew this was going to be good training for Pigman Long Course in August which is known to be steamy.
My swim is still not where it needs to be - especially since I didn't swim for six weeks and then I fell down the stairs a couple of weeks ago and I might have a slight crack in my rib or a rib out of place.

Chisago Sprint Preview - One of the many cool things about the Chisago Lakes Triathlon is it's reverence for Swedish stuff. The Chisago Lakes Area, which encompasses the villages of Lindstrom, Shafer, Center City and, of course, Chisago City, promotes itself as "America's Little Sweden," thus it's appropriate that race organizers "Swedish-icize" their event.
They do so in a number of ways. For instance, serving nummilicious Swedish pancakes and ice cream after the event. And finishers stride beneath a large blue flag adorned with a golden cross.
And this year, awards winners (in both the sprint and the half) will receive totally cool and beautiful Dala Horses (photo L), which are very important in Swedish culture. Gloria, CLT founder/director and one who is always on the lookout for cool ways to upgrade her events, sent us this cool verbiage about Dala Horsies:...
