MPLS TRIATHLON - AMATEUR WOMEN - St. Paul's Heather Lendway (awesome YndeCam photo L) came into the Elite Amateur race at the 13th annual Life Time Tri - Minneapolis Triathlon as the favorite. No surprise there. She goes into every race as the women's fave.
Heather's supporting cast at last Saturday's mega-race was formidable, arguably the deepest women's amateur assemblage that we'll see before Nationals in August.
