With a little more than a month of racing in the books, a couple of MMA Committee members thought it would be cool to highlight some of the great stuff that happened in May (and late April). These are "mock" awards, meaning that we don't have any stuff to give to the winners.Please know that if we had stuff to give, we'd totally give it. Maybe we can talk Devon Palmer into giving Peace Coffee, which is awesome, to the winners.
Also know that we made up the categories.
INSPIRATIONAL DUATHLETE OF THE MONTH - ISAAC - Isaac is blind and physically challenged and he totally ROCKED at the Apple Kids Duathlon....

The former St. Joseph mayor and state representative decided to get healthy three years ago. Now he's seeing the rewards from losing 70-plus pounds.
"I showed up for my last term in the Legislature and my suit shirts didn't fit my neck. I was OK with punching another hole in the belt, but I had enough when my neck was getting too big for my clothes," Hosch said.
"I knew that's when I had to do something about it."
Hosch, 37, finished in seventh place at the Apple Duathlon on Saturday morning in Sartell with a time of 1 hour, 26 minutes and 45 seconds. It was Hosch's third time running the race....

For some triathletes, the idea of walking during the run portion of a race is out of the question. You’d rather shamble along with your last ounce of energy and fall across the finish line than walk, right? New research suggests that you should give yourself a break, showing that in longer races like a half or full iron-distance, walk breaks might be a good idea.
For the study, German researchers looked at what differences might exist between runners who used a run/walk strategy in a marathon (running for a minute and a half and then walking for a minute) and those who simply ran the entire race. They were interested in not only who was faster, but also who felt better upon crossing the finish line.....
