* 6th ANNUAL FAIRMONT TRIATHLONS - Saturday's lightly-attended Fairmont Olympic Triathlon was won by Jonathan Sage Martinson and Heather McCleery. Jonathon is an extremely handsome guy who really likes the nearly budgetless unfinished indi sci-fi film, "Project London." How arsty-fartsy is that! We watched a Youtube clip. It was kinda cool. We were unable to dig up any stuff on Heather, but we suspect that she is a totally cool person.
Fairmont's companion Sprint Triathlon boasted almost 100 individual finishers and was won by Lucas DeWitt and repeat champion Stephanie Peterson, who was nominated for Minnesota Rookie of the Year in 2011. Steph (photo L) grew up in Fairmont and is arguably the nicest person ever to come out of that bucolic southern Minnesota community. FAIRMONT RESULTS
* 3rd ANNUAL EU CLAIRE TRIATHLON - Minnesotans rocked socks on Sunday at the Eau Claire Triathlon, which was appropriately staged in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. "Eau Claire" is a French deal, meaning "Clear Waters." A pair of Minnesota's ...

David Thompson and Hannah Sullivan are expecting their first child any minute now. Heck, he may already be born and we just haven't gotten the news yet.
Yup. The couple is expecting a boy. They may not have wanted to know the baby's gender but the ultrasound guy probably spilled the beans, i.e. the frank and beans, when he wanded over the fetus' junk, thereby televising that unmistakeable feature for the parents to see whether they wanted to or not.
Babies need names and the MTN Guys want to help DKT and Hannah select just the right moniker for their new or impending son. We think they should name him after...

Trinona's Together Do-Do...

Race Preview - Dave Schutz totally has his race directing do-do together. His TRINONA, the fourth edition of which is on Sunday, has won the Race of the Year award twice and finished 2nd in the polling on the other occasion. How impressive is that! This kinda stuff couldn't happen with un-together do-do.
Trinona is simply a magnificent event. Magnificently staged, scenic and challenging courses and amenities up the wahzoo. And it has pulled pork sandwiches and chocolate chip cookies as big as your head. And Amanda, Dave's spousal unit, sings the National Anthem, better than anyone.
Boasting record numbers, the race filled long ago. STILL, visit Trinona's awesome website to learn about all the cool and innovative stuff that will take place n Sunday. LINK
