Unheralded, but not Undeserving File - Minnesota's many national and world level multisport athletes command a large portion of MTN's cyber ink. Cathy and Patrick and Kevin and Kort and Brian and Jenny et al have been busy setting performance standards and have deservedly reaped the benefits, whether in material form or in terms of recognition.
There are so many other fine multisport athletes in our state who possess what we can call "regional" or "local" class talent. Some of these folks are the national classers of tomorrow. And simply put, these people rarely get the props they deserve. Addressing this, MTN will periodically post features from our "Unheralded, but not Undeserving File"....

MTN + Facebook=Prizes
By Darin Wieneke
MTN has finally joined the rest of the world (or at least 500 million others) and launched a Facebook page. The timing of the launch will allow us to provide even better and more extensive race coverage for the 2011 triathlon season. We will do our best to post race results even quicker on Facebook and encourage people to use our page as a discussion forum in regard to races....

* 2010 Minnesota Grand Master of the Year, Pam Stevens, 58, turned in yet another brilliant effort last weekend at Chain of Lakes. Pammy finished 5th overall in a preposterously brisk 1:10:16, which lowered her own 50-59W course record by 3:52. Finishing 6th just twenty-seven ticks behind Pam was statuesque math teacher from Sauk Rapids, Amy Woolsey. We're mentioning Amy because, like Pam, she is really cool and we like her a lot....

BEST OF MINNESOTA: Post-Race Food Results Are In
By Darin Wieneke (MTN Staff Epicure)
MTN is hoping that the BEST POST-RACE FOOD title will become hotly contested in the coming years. If so, we will all be winners! Here are some menu suggestions for a few races:
Twin Cities Triathlon: This race is located in St. Paul and just blocks from West St. Paul and some the best Mexican restaurants in Minnesota (i.e. Boca Chica). I am thinking tostados or tacos would be great. A Mariachi band would also be a sweet addition....

I had a weekend to myself in March (My girlfriend, Jackie, was gone to Mexico for spring break), so I thought I would rent a bunch of movies that she would not be terribly interested in watching. The four movies I chose to rent, for better or worse, were RED, The American, Book of Eli, and The Expendables. I was mostly happy with three of the four choices.
RED (Retired Extremely Dangerous) stars Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malcovich, Helen Mirren, and Mary-Louise Parker. I was expecting this movie to have action, comedy, to be over-the-top, corny, etc. It was all that, and it made me happy. Not a great movie, but I thought it was fun to watch....
