Life Time Tri - Minneapolis - My race report is a little late, but we all know how life gets in the way sometimes. Plus, I am tapering this week to get ready for Ironman 70.3 in Racine, so I haven't been as focused as I usually am anyways. Believe everything they say about taper weeks, it's all true. I am irritable, antsy, and I want to eat all the food. I can't believe I married a guy who is so calm during the shit storm that is tapering. Reason #3,999,997 why I love him.
Anyways, let's get back to the Lifetime Tri this last Saturday. Which for the record, I had to convince my coach to let me sign up for. After the trainwreck that was Liberty, I knew I needed a confidence booster...

Major League Tri - Sarasota Race Report - My teammate Calah Schlabach was out with a concussion so Kaitlin Donner filled in for her this race. Kaitlin led off tagging Robbie in 3rd place just a few seconds behind second and ten seconds behind the leader. Robbie tagged me off in fifth place about 20 – 30 seconds down from 3rd and 4th and 10 to 20 more seconds to first and second....

LIFE TIME TRI - MINNEAPOLIS - Studying the results of last Saturday's race, the historic 15th edition thereof, three performances immediately jumped off the page at us: Alissa Doehla's, Chap Achen's and Maggie Weiss' (photo L).
Doehla's name was familiar to us, but we couldn't place her. Until we did a little research. She was a track and cross country All American at Michigan State University a few years back with Olympic aspirations. The 1500 was her favorite distance, but she excelled at all distances. Her PRs: 15:28-5K, 32:14-10K, 1:13 - half marathon, 2:31-marathon.
Doehla won the Minneapolis Tri this year in 2:08:07, becoming the 2nd amateur woman in race history...

CLEARWATER — Nate Hoffman had not won a triathlon in four years.
And the Annandale High School graduate, and former Division III All-American cross country runner at Wisconsin-La Crosse, was blunt when asked the reason why.
"I'm just a really poor swimmer," he said....
