The MTN Guys would like to buy every tri and du-athlete in Minnesota a new car. But we can't because we've spent most of our Christmas money on candy. Just know that if we could buy everyone some stuff, we totally would.
In years' past we have revealed the gifts that we'd like to get for Team Minnesota members. Here, in addition to the cars we won't be giving them, are some personal gifts from us that Team MN '14 will NOT be receiving. Ladies first:
1. HEATHER LENDWAY - Heather has done a lot of international traveling in her young life and will do a lot more in the coming years because she'll be a vagabond pro triathlete. Therefore, we want to give her an airplane neck pillow; you know, the kind that look like a padded toilet seat. Because she is a loyal Macalester alum, we'd like to get her a plaid...

By Gwen Jorgensen (gwenjorgensen.com - September 9, 2014)
World Champion. It all just doesn’t seem real. I feel like I am living in my own fantasy world and it’s awesome! I don’t know where to start to explain my journey and thoughts on winning the 2014 ITU Championship.
Leading up to the Edmonton WTS Grand Final, I wasn’t my normal, driven self. I was still getting up every day and getting the work done, but since the Chicago WTS, my motivation wasn’t the same. I wanted to finish the season with a bang, but my bed was looking better and better every day. I had no excuse, as the weather was nice and my training was going well (besides a few really bad swimming sessions). But it had been a season full of long haul travel, emotions, work, and sweat and it was all catching up with me.
When we arrived in Edmonton, I was impressed with the atmosphere and promotion of the race. Everywhere I looked I saw signs for the triathlon: “This is going to be EPIC.” I loved it! However, ...

OH POOP! - The MTN Guys are totally bummed because there will not be a CHASKA TRI in 2015. According to race director Michael Beckmann, who is a truly cool guy who sweats profusely in hot weather and is willing to have his head shaved for a worthy cause (He is a HOOT!): "Construction at the venue that will not be completed in time. Planning on returning for 2016 and the venue will be nicer."
Chaska Tri is a great event. Let's make sure that it has a record turnout in 2016, okay?
