Q: How are my hydration needs different in winter versus summer?
A: Many athletes I work with are surprised to learn that their sweat rate does not change just because the temperature drops. This is because sweat rate is determined by numerous factors, including fitness level, pace and acclimatization, not just ambient temperature. I actually find that athletes are just as likely to become dehydrated during winter workouts...

Gold Guys Netflix Streaming Movie Reviews: THE JASON STATHAM SPECIAL EDITION

Many Jason Statham movies end up on Netflix streaming. This is probably a reflection of the quality of movies he appears in. I still love him. None of his biggest movies, like the Transporter franchise, are available on streaming. Recently he’s had a new one on streaming every few months. There are currently ten Jason Statham movies available on streaming, though one is a documentary he narrated about race cars which I have not watched.

I'm going to take you back a bit. To July, 2004 as a matter of fact. One of my good running buddies, Marcia Lee, had entered the LifeTime Fitness triathlon as part of a relay team. Her daughter would swim; her son would bike and she would run.
This "triathlon" thing was sort of a puzzle to me. I didn't quite get how the whole thing fit together, how you'd have energy enough to finish the dang thing, and, oh yeah: the swim. The D R E A D E D swim in a L A K E. With other people. And fish.
I'd done plenty of road races up until this point. Every thing from 5Ks to marathons. Didn't do them fast, but finished them. Through them, I had found a great bunch of friends and had certainly challenged myself in ways I never thought possible. But triathlon? You'd have to be crazy to do one of those, right?

ED. Some of this stuff may have been slightly embellished.
Going Off Course - Thunder Bay resident Kayla Kjellman used to be Canada's premier junior triathlete, something she'd still be if she hadn't gotten older. And while swim-bike-run is her favorite athletic endeavor, she is nevertheless pursuing a world record in another sport.
That sport: Beer Mile.
In case you don't know this sport, Beer Mile consists of four laps of a regulation track and each circuit is preceded by the chugging of a twelve ounce brewski. How fast can you run a mile? And how fast can you run a mile when you have to stop four times and drink a beer? Cool sport, huh?
Canada is the self-proclaimed Mecca of Beer Mile and it is believed that the Canuck records and the world marks are one and the same. For the dudes, the semi-recognized WR belongs to a guy named Sean Wade from Hamilton, Ontario, who hoovered four Lakeport Honey Lagers en route to a time of 5:40.0. There's a guy in Australia who...

The MTN Guys are totally into Facebook. And because triathletes are also people, FB is where we go to find out cool, non-triathlon stuff about them.
Here's some interesting non-triathlony stuff about five of Duluth's most prominent swim-bike-runners:
-JESSICA ROSSING - Jess is into Flamenco dancing, which is a Spanish deal that features a lot of stomping and the clicking of cucarachas. It's a tap-dancy kind of thing that sounds cool. Dance Link
- ROD RAYMOND - If ever there was ever a guy who didn't have a "Feminine Side," it's The Rocket. Or so we thought. We learned recently that he is into Ballet, which is totally a ...
