Oh poop!

Once again the Lake Minnetonka Triathlon will not be advertising on MTN.

Kona Countdown: Guac on His Navel...

If you have not had the opportunity to meet jMatt Keil, you really should take the time to introduce yourself and converse with him at a future triathlon. There is a saying that we become part of what we are around. If that saying is true, you will leave the conversation with jMatt a more positive, upbeat person. With that said, meet jMatt:

Hi. My name is jMatt Keil (Jon Matthew). I reside in Minneapolis and make my living as a cheerleader for a small production and post production company in the world of advertising.

He will also have a great support crew with him, including his wife and about every other Hooke (see below) in Minnesota.

Q & A with Alex Hooke

MTN: Where did you qualify for the Ironman World Championships in Kona?

Alex: I qualified at last year's IM Wisconsin....
