Race Coverage - Jeff Grebner is a really, really nice guy. Tall, too. And he has a lovely wife and probably some kids and a dog.
But this stuff had noting to do with why the MTN Guys predicted that Jeff would win yesterday's Blaine Triathlon, a totally awesome first-time event.
We thought Jeff would win because he's a great athlete. AND because he's DUE.
When he came off the bike yesterday, it sure looked like his time had come. His lead was substantial.
At mile three of the 3.5-mile run, another guy who had yet to win his first multi, overtook Greb. He was running like a banshee....

When You Travel To a Race
By Monique Ryan (from usatriathlon.org)
It is possible that one of your important races this season will require that you cross one or more time zones. Flying to a race can result in jet lag, disrupting sleep as well as eating habits and your digestive system. Symptoms of jet lag include periods of tiredness during the day, disturbed concentration, reduced energy, and of course irregular sleep at night.

We Q'ed and A'ed with Suzie Fox after her stunning victory at the Oakdale Duathlon last weekend. Here are her totally cool and eloquent answers to our ineloquent questions.
MTN - You rocked socks at Oakdale, Suz! The win was the 6th of your young multisport career and it not only shattered a course record, your pace suggested that you would have crushed Jenny Wilcox's mark that was set on a slightly longer course in 2010.
Do you consider your effort at Oakdale to be a "breakout?" Was it your best performance yet?
SUZIE - It was exciting to be back at Oakdale because I raced there my rookie year in '09 so I wanted to see how much I have improved. I cut 16:55 off from my last time racing there, even though the course was slightly longer in '09 it is amazing what equipment upgrades from Gear West Bike, an OHP coach, and 3 years of hard work and dedication can do! It was for sure a "breakout" and my best performance at Oakdale at least....
