HAMSTRINGS ARE LIKE CHILDREN. Sometimes they get crabby; and sometimes they don't do what they're supposed to do, or what you want them to do.
Because they are part of your body, we don't recommend that you actually physically punish your disobedient hammies when they act up, unless of course, you are a total masochist. We think you should do what what elite triathletes David Thompson, Kortney Haag and Heidi Keller-Miler do.
Like telling his imagined 13-year-old son that he can't play "Call of Duty" on his X-Box for a whole week, DKT grounded a bitchy hammie two weekends ago, depriving it and himself the opportunity to race at the Rev 3-...

ST. CROIX VALLEY TRIATHLONS - Twelve years ago, Final Stretch, a longtime producer of running events, staged it's first triathlon in Hudson, Wisconsin. The St. Croix Valley Sprint.
Though the event was an instant success, FS waited until 2008 to produce another multisport event. That year, they acquired the popular Liberty Tri and inaugurated the Falls Duathlon. Today they stage eight multis, more than any other Minnesota event management company. Their contribution to the multisport lifestyle in our region has been humongoid....

Outland Challenge Triathlon - Have you ever heard of the Outland Challenge?
Neither had we, but triathlete / Physical Therapist Extraordinaire Cindy Schalfmann, who has a 17-year-old son who plays and referees soccer and just got his first car and has a girlfriend, insists that such a race exists, claiming that it isn't far from her ancestral hometown of Canby, Minnesota, which she claims is close to the South Dakota border. Supposedly, the race is on the SD side of said border.
We like Cindy a lot, thus we assume that she isn't lying.
Here's her race report:
It was a small race of just under 100 participants I believe including those on teams but last year I think there were only around 50 individual triathletes.....

Hy-Vee 5150 U.S. Championship - The second deepest elite amateur field of the year (behind USAT Nationals) will be on hand for this weekend's 5150 EA National Championship in Des Moines, Iowa. On the men's high-end side, the race will feature the Top 4 finishers at AG Nationals, and yes, we believe that these guys, all of whom will likely be considered for 2012 USAT AOY, will sweep the podium+one. Will the order be the same as at Nationals? That is the question. We hope not.

"I Want to do This Again!"

This is Morcelli (with his mom, Eddah, and Lisa Goepfert.)
When he was a child, he couldn't pedal a tricycle. He couldn't hold
a crayon like other kids and he couldn't walk in a straight line.
There were a lot of things he couldn't do like the others.
