FALLS DUATHLON PREVIEW - The 8th edition of this totally cool Final Stretch event will kick off Minnesota's 2016 outdoor duathlon season in bucolic Cannon Falls on April 30. Timing geek Andrew, recently married and sporting a gnarly handlebar 'stache, sent us a list of entrants yesterday and we were impressed. With 250ish folks already signed up and another 50-or-so anticipated, the race could have a record turnout.
Though we expect several elite athletes, e.g. Devon Palmer, Bennett Isabella, Chad Millner, Joe Johnson, Suzie Fox, Diane Hankee, Jenn Scudiero etc., to sign up in the coming weeks, a few decorated folks have already registered....

ED. Here's a cool small town newspaper article about triathlete Erin Klegstad.
By Margie Holmgren (kittsonarea.com)
By now a few of us have broken some of our new years resolutions, but maybe a few of us decided to make life changes instead. Life changes, things that will stick.
For Erin Klegstad, daughter of Tom and Sharlene Klegstad, that change came several years ago.
Klegstad, grew up in Hallock and currently lives in Minneapolis/Saint Paul....

King Boreas Winter Tri co-director Jeremy Sartain called us recently to let us know that Jan Guenther has registered for Sunday's Run-fat bike-ski race at Lake Phalen on Sunday. Very exciting stuff.
