Here are MTN we like to write about interesting people that we like a lot. The problem is that triathletes are inherently cool, thus we are doomed to like almost all of them.
So how do we choose who we write about?
We categorize. Today, we are selecting our subject from the "Favorite Guys With Male Pattern Baldness" category.
Because there are so many great candidates in this group, we were forced to sub-categorize. Thus, we decided to select a guy from the "Bald Triathletes Who Reside in Richfield, Have Bunions and Who Have Won at Least Six Races Between 2009 and 2011" category....

ED. St. Paul relatively-new-parents/triathletes Steve and Sarah Stenzel were featured on triathlon.competitor.com on Thursday. How cool is that! We're re-posting it here for those who haven't seen the story yet.
HAPPILY EVER AFTER...By Sarah Wassner Flynn
Who: Steve Stenzel, 30 and Sarah Linder-Stenzel, 31
Where: St. Paul, MN
High school sweethearts Steve and Sarah started off as runners but now race triathlons regularly. Sarah, who took up the sport first, converted a hesitant Steve to the sport in 2006, and, since then the two of them have competed in every distance, from sprint to Ironman, often together....
Feet & Filets....

Going Off Course - Podiatric surgeon / vagabond tri-du athlete / steak-lover, Troy Vargas, knows almost everything there is to know about feet. He knows, for example, why some feet stink, and others don't. And he figured out early in life that standing and running are almost impossible if you don't have feet. And he knows all about diseases of the foot and that a foot has more than 10 bones in it. He knows that "Toe Jam" isn't really jam.
And he knows what corns are. Almost nobody really knows what a corn is. And he knows why plantar warts have poppy seeds in them.
To most people, feet are purely functional, allowing them to stand and walk, but are otherwise kinda gross. If feet weren't gross, mankind would not have invented socks and shoes and nail polish and toe rings and Dr. Scholl's stuff, right?
But to Troy, feet are beautiful are cool and worthy of love and appreciation....
