Hot News - Less than two weeks before the Leadville Trail 100 MTB Race, it was announced that all the Leadville races have been sold and are being run by Life Time Fitness, a company based in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The ANNOUNCEMENT came out Thursday. Life Time Fitness, which operates fitness, family recreation and spa centers across the U.S., had been the title sponsor of the race in 2008 and 2009.
In its new role, the company will also direct all of the other running and mountain biking Leadville races, including the Leadville Trail 100, the Leadville Silver Rush 50-Mile Mountain Bike Race and the 12/24 Hours of Leadville Mountain Bike Race. Race founder Ken Chlouber has directed the Colorado mountain bike race since founding it in 1994, which was was an addition to the ultramarathon running race, the Leadville Trail 100.

Then imagine that Mr. Brady, the guy with the perm in the middle of the shot, is her--Michelle's--husband and that five of the six kids are boys. Pretend the leftover kid is "Debbie," a portrait crasher from Pequot Lakes. (The Andres--pronounced "Ann-drees," not "Ann-Dress," are from East Gull Lake, which is a stone's throw south of Pequot Lakes.) Next, imagine that the older woman in the right corner of the picture is not Alice, the Brady's acerbic housekeeper. Instead, pretend that she's Michelle's spry Aunt Ethel, who is visiting from Minot. That would explain Ethel's helmety hairdo. Lots of older women in Minot have "hair helmets." Usually blue.
What does this have to do with anything?
Not much, except that we believe that Michelle, who is a terrific triathlete in addition to being a very fertile woman, will once again win the totally cool Northwoods Triathlon, the 8th edition of which is this Saturday. Andres has five career wins, three..
