8th Annual NEW BRI TRI - Devon Palmer collected his 2nd win three starts this season on Saturday at Long Lake Regional Park. His time--1:00:33--was two minutes faster than his last effort here, a victorious 1:02:47 in 2010 and, relatively speaking (because course distances get tweaked often), is probaby the fastest men's clocking in race history. A super effort on a windy day for the heavily caffeinated 28-year-old.
Devon's margin of victory over runner-up Jeff Grebner, who is much older and taller than Palmer, was substantial: 4:53. Greb's 1:05 was a great masters time, though, and Jeff went on to WIN the Buffalo Sprint the next day. Great double for the Greb-Monster.

As we near the outdoor competitive season, many athletes are thinking about their performance nutrition regimen. Some may start experimenting with powders, pills or other mysterious products that promise enhanced recovery, increased muscle gains and better energy during workouts. I love discussing supplements with my athletes because — unlike a lot of Internet outlets — my advice is 100 percent science-based, unbiased and unpaid for by any companies. Here are three things I tell my athletes that many supplement companies would not be too thrilled to hear.
1. The marketed positive outcomes of supplements is often based on theory, not proven science. ...
Great Press For Matt...

During an ideal week of training, Matt Payne logs 250 miles on his bicycle, 40 miles on the running trails and 15,000 yards in the swimming pool. But with most of his time already spoken for — by his wife and two young children, and a career as a mechanical engineer — Payne usually doesn’t have the luxury of devoting that many hours to preparing for triathlons and duathlons.
So the Columbia Heights resident does much of his training in a most practical manner: by riding his bike to work and to the swimming pool, and running during his lunch break. That routine has built Payne, 38, into a...
