Do you have any idea how much good work Team In Training is doing---right here in Minnesota? We didn't. So we were happily surprised and wanted to share some information with you.

For instance, last year alone the Leukemia & Lymphome Society awarded $2.9 million for five separate research grants at Mayo Clinic and University of Minnesota. The Team in Training partnership with Life Time Minneapolis Triathlon has raised over $973,000 since 2008 and they fully expect to break the $1 million mark this year...

Yurting in the U.P...

Let me start off by saying that the people who populated the northern inland regions of the world are tough as a box of nails. I had a very concrete realization of this fact after Claire and I’s winter yurt adventure in the Porcupine Mountains last weekend. We drove up to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula last Thursday with two backpacks full of clothes and food and spent two nights in two yurts.

Although it was warm with highs in the teens and lows only dipping down to...

The puck flew over the glass early in the first period, and despite being vastly outnumbered by Russian fans in the 12,000 capacity Bolshoy Ice Dome, Swarthout — dressed in a vintage Mike Modano Team USA jersey — made a clean pick....

The Endurance Live Awards chose to honor Hines Ward, some ultra guy and an obvious doper. They did give out some awards to deserving folks. Javier Gomez and Brena Martinez (great track season, medal at the world championships) and Mirinda Carfrae all won awards. But to give male runner of the year to an ultra guy? What about the track or road athletes who actually run races against fast athletes? Nick Symmonds and Matt Centrowitz both got silver medals at Track Worlds in 2013. Those are pretty good accomplishments. As for Hines Ward, hasn’t he gotten enough attention and...
