A Great Letter...

During the Tri-Night 2009 awards celebration last September, I was one of the embarrassed few who could not raise a hand to the important question raised by one of the presenters: "How many of you volunteered at a race this year?" This immediately sunk in and I became determined to make sure I would be able to answer in the affirmative in 2010. With this in mind, earlier this year I registered to volunteer at the upcoming 2010 Ironman Wisconsin event (my wife and I will be wetsuit strippers and medal distributors). Even though I was only planning on one volunteer stint this season (at IMW), I'm happy to report that I will now have at least two.
You see, earlier this week, my entire family caught some sort of fever bug and we were sick as dogs for a few days. Even though I felt almost 100% by the end of this week, I decided that it would be best to not race, so I relinquished my spot ..

Features - Dork got a new Rocket
By Tom Segar
One Sunday morning in 2001 before a training ride, a hung-over housemate of Greg Worm (programmer and Dork Rocket founding father) was sick of hearing Greg clicking around the kitchen with his bike shoes and said the immortal words

Hey MTN - Hope you are having a great summer!! John and I are racing The San Francisco Triathlon...well John is racing I am hoping not to be shark bait in the swim or a beached whale on the run...We are doing the race with Team in Training and John is an Honoree again for the San Francisco TNT chapter. Since we decided to do this last minute we are looking for a fast and easy way to get the word out to help get donations....
of course I thought of you and your website.
I know John isn't big on advertising or talking about his cancer but I was thinking maybe a Q and A from you on your website would be a positive way to promote our TNT fundraising...

K-Swiss is one of our site sponsors and as with all of our indispensable advertisers, we jump at every opportunity to be as obsequious as possible. We need them desperately and as long as they have butts, our lips will be puckered.
In truth, we have a totally "Rock n Roll" relationship with our advertisers. They enjoy fun and and a little outrage as much as we do. To demonstrate this, we'd like you to check out K-Swiss' new "Tubes" video. IT'S AWESOME. It stars that guy (Danny Miller) who plays George Clooney's little sister's fiance in the totally great movie, "Up in the Air," and he's a downright hoot! LINK

The Whole Story :) - By KRIS MIELKE & MARK KUHN
Kris: It all began back on February 7th, 2009. It was the first gathering of the Team in Training Summer teams for a very chilly run around Lake Calhoun. Quite often a handful of runners get together before the team run to get in a few extra miles. I was not really up for the idea considering the icicles that would likely form on my face but peer pressure by two of my close friends at the time got me out of bed. We arrived at the lake and there was a handful of people there I knew and some that I didn't. One "newbie" caught my eye. All dressed in black with the best blue eyes and smile. Granted that's about all that was exposed due to the layers upon layers of run clothes but still :) That was my first introduction to Mark....
