Jesse Thomas’ three-step plan to conquering all the stuff you suck at.
Unless you’re Ryan Gosling from the movie “Drive,” you probably have a weakness or two. I’ll tell you that I am no Ryan Gosling. I don’t own a leather jacket, I drive a Prius and there are tons of things I could work on that would make me a better person.
Most of us try to work on our weaknesses at least once a year, either with New Year’s resolutions, or in the case of us athletes, new season resolutions....

The outdoor season is almost upon us. This is the time of year that the MTN Guys like to predict stuff, like who is going to totally rock. Here are a few athletes that we think will kick serious butt in 2014:
OLIVIA BAGNALL (photo) - We truly believe that this girl is special. Runner-up for Rookie of the Year in 2013, she won two races in course record time. Ranked 11th last year, we expect her to make Team MN this time around.
DENNIS DANE - Dennis is what we call a "lapsed" star. After four years --2006 to 2009--of impressive performances, Dane dropped out of sight. It had something to do with having babies and starting his own business. He returned to racing in 2012 and his results were good, albeit not quite the stuff that leads to placement on Team Minnesota.

Step 2: Activate your legs. Kick a little extra during the last 200 meters of the swim....

Hey MTN Guys,
I know you asked for an updateies over a month ago, so apologies, but you asked about cool things we've been up to and I wanted to be able to include some fun things about my recent travels. After the season ended last year I "took it easy" for a few weeks but got back into a good training routine fairly quickly. I've done a few masters swim meets this winter, which are pretty low key compared to any sort of...
