julie-pose.gifAccording to the "Likes" section of her Facebook page, Duluth tri-studdette JULIE HENDRICKSON is into Bud Light and Stouffer's frozen entrees.

Who isn't?

From the photo section of her FB page we learned that she has an awesome body and can do stuff most people can't, like that thing she's doing in the photo (L). What is that?

We also learned that she has a friend named Jill (photo below R).

Julie Hendrickson is married to a guy named Mike, who is also named Hendrickson, and is an accomplished triathlete, too. Mike and Julie got married back in 2000, when Mike was like 12 and Julie was like 10. We don't know if the couple has any pets, but we hope they do.....

Postcard-front-1.gifWe got this cool postcard from Heather Lendway last Tuesday. She was in Greece at the time spending devalued Euros and eating goat with yogurt and grape leaves. For those who don't know, Greece is in what is called the "Mediterranean" region, not far from Europe.

We were able to decipher almost all of Heather's note. Most of it written in English. Check it out:

 

Hats & Dirty Word...

kristin-family.gifKRISTIN WEINZIERL is an infrequent swim-bike-runner, but a talented one, nonetheless.

Before we share some of Kristin's results, we want to tell you some cool stuff about her that we learned on Facebook. She, like us, likes to listen to the Dave Ryan Show in the morning, especially on Thursdays when he does "The War of the Roses." Have you ever tuned in for that? It's a hoot! Dave and Falen bust people that are totally cheating on their boyfriends or girlfriends.

You can learn a lot about a person just by looking at pictures of them. In the photo (L) we can tell that Kristin is very pretty and looks good in hats.
