Pharmie's Let Herself Go...

anurag-jain.gifYWCA Indoor Tri #3 - Lotsa cool stuff happened last weekend at the YWCA Indoor Tri. Sixty-three finishers. Bob Thompson and Anne Grabowski repeated as overall winners in the Mega Sprint. Leslie Stanaway was the shortest and smiliest finisher in the overall Top 4 of the Sprint. And Anurag Jain, who placed 4th in the Mega, had the coolest name in the entire event. We're not sure how to pronounce it.

We looked up Anurag Jain on Facebook and learned that he is a guy, and that he's from Dehli, India. We also know that's he's been to Mount Rushmore (photo L) and Duluth, likes tennis, Robin Williams, nan and Chicken Tikka Masala....

Former Salukis & Taylor Swift Lookalikes...

crista.gifED. Here's some perfunctory coverage of a couple of indoor triathlons.

LIFE TIME - EDEN PRAIRIE INDOOR (March 9) - The guy who won this event is named Marty Wyland. There's a guy by that name on Facebook, but we're not 100% sure if it's the guy who won the tri, but we think it is. If we're right, we know that he's a former "Saluki," i.e. that he attended Southern Illinois University, and he likes Twinkies alot. He's a computer guy and has a lot of hair. At age 55, he rocked a 13th place overall finish at One Last Tri last fall.

Marty placed 5th at this event last year.

The fastest woman at LTF-EP was Crista Bartholomew. Crista is one of the totally attractive women in the photo (L). We don't know which one. The girl on the left looks a little like Jennifer Lawrence, don't you think? The girl on the right looks like a slightly older version of Taylor Swift...

Last weekend I actually won my division. I know what you're thinking- What has this got to do with chocolate, and I'm thinking the same thing. But this was not your average win. I would have come in last as usual, had it not been for the Yeti....
 

Sophomore Success!

ruth-panama.gifRochester's second-year pro, RUTH BRENNAN MORREY, turned in an awesome performance on Sunday at Panama 70.3. Here's a portion of the coverage that appeared on triathlon.competitor.com:

While Bazelen was able to stay strong for third, defending champion Wurtele was not so lucky: She suffered heatstroke in the final miles of the race and did not finish. In a surprising turn of events, American Ruth Brennan Morrey—a psychologist and mother of three from Rochester, Minn.—turned in the fastest run on the women’s side (1:21:31) to leapfrog her way to fifth place.
