Photo - St. Cloud area's tri sisters (L-R): Amy Woolsey, Judy Peters and Pam Stevens.
Chain of Lakes Triathlon - Sauk Rapids' fifty-genarian Amy Woolsey has always raced well at COLT. Yesterday, at the 14th edition of that Alex-based tri, she turned in her fastest time--1:11:01--and her best placing--1st overall woman--ever. The statuesque math teacher outdistanced her nearest challenger, Pauline McJilton, 48, who like Woolsey, has done her best racing during the last 3-4 season, by 2:38. Rounding out the women's podium was 54-year-old Mary Deeg, who like Woolsey, is statuesque, and like Woolsey and McJilton, is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet.
For Amy, it was her first tri win and 2nd multi victory of her career, which began at the inaugural edition of COLT in 2002.
Also rocking socks in the women's competition was 63-year-old Sheri Schrock, who placed 4th overall. It was her 2nd divisional win in as many starts this year. Last week at Falls Du, she lowered her own 60-64W CR by more than three minutes. Shrock was runner-up for Minnesota Grand Master of the Year in 2015....

Compartment syndrome is a condition that usually effects either the lower leg or the forearm. These areas of the body are broken up into compartments by fascia and each compartment contains, muscles, nerves, and arteries. Compartment syndrome occurs when the pressure inside one of these compartments rises and causes symptoms, inadequate blood flow, or nerve compression. Compartment syndrome can be broken up into two different types: acute and chronic.

In July, Jordan Hasay plans to head to Eugene, Oregon, for the 2016 Olympic Trials. It should be a sweet moment for the 24-year-old distance runner who, just last summer, was forced to withdraw from the USA Track & Field Outdoor Championships because of a case of plantar fasciitis, making her ineligible to compete at the IAAF World Championships.
She and coach Alberto Salazar had to make a difficult decision, as they faced the young athlete’s first injury during an otherwise smooth career. And Hasay, like many runners who have had to deal with...
