What is a Resilinator?
It’s a kid who knows how to roll with the punches in life. A kid who keeps functioning when adversity strikes. A kid who faces setbacks and refuses to quit.

After race sherpa-ing for him for six years, Daniel Cassidy's girlfriend finally had enough. "One day she got annoyed with the whole thingm" Casside says. "She said, 'I know you love this sport, but it's boring. All the waiting all the getting up early.'" Cassidy said they came to an agreement--he would go watch her first triathlon from beginning to end.
"It was the first tri that I had ever watched and not raced" says Cassidy, whose girlfriend-now wife-competed at the Sheriff's Sprint in Massachusetts. "It was pretty brutal. I felt like there had to be a better way to watch the sport."...

21st Century Team Minnesota...
Wednesday, 15 February 2017 23:10
Not long ago a guy dared us to create "21st Century Team Minnesota," i.e. our state's Top 10 men and women during the period between January 1, 2001 and today. We loved the idea, and with some input from a couple of the MMA Selectors, we came up with our lists, which we choose tp reveal in alphabetical order, not by ranking their resumes.
The women's listing was easier to compile, so let's start with them. Here is MTN's 21st Century Women's Team Minnesota":
- MICHELLE ANDRES - Minnesota's all-time fastest and most decorated amateur female Iron distance competitor, she's a two-time IMOO champ and set her PR- 9:50:23 at Kona in 2013.
- CLAIRE BOOTSMA (photo L) - She won 13 races, most in course record times, in her short (4 years) career in which she entered only the most competitive races. Her personal best at Olympic distance was 2:09:26.
- RUTH BRENNAN MORREY - A pro since 2013, Ruth is a two-time US Elite Duathlete of the Year in addition to being our state's fastest female at long distances. Her best IM performances yielded a 9:09 and a 9:02. Her best 70.3 time is 4:13. ...

Du & Dubai...

KING BOREAS DUATHLON - Yup, it's official. Sunday's Winter Triathlon National Championship at Lake Phalen is now a du (5K-19.5K-3K). The event needed more of the white stuff and some colder temps in the last several days, but that didn't happen.
Still, there will be a good crowd racing on Sunday. The list we saw yesterday had 92 names on it. For perspective, last year's race (tri) had 66 finishers....
