HL-face.gifANOTHER TOP 5! - 2015 US Elite Rookie of the Year, HEATHER LENDWAY, continues to impress. Yesterday, the St. Paul resident placed 4th at Buenos Aires 70.3. Her time was 4:24:06 and featured the fastest women's swim split and the third fastest bike.

The women's race was won in breakout fashion by second-year British pro, Kimberley Morrison, who was the overall female European amatuer champion in 2014. Keeping HL off the podium was sneaky come-from-behind bronze medalist Ariane Monticeli of Sao Paulo, Brazil, who, like Morrison, turned in her best professional effort to date. Monticeli's run split (1:22) was almost seven minutes faster than her gender's next best split. ...

They say Minnesota has two seasons:  winter and road construction.

I think our two seasons are:  outdoor triathlon and indoor triathlon.

While I will say that outdoor tri season is the best, with its warm days, open water and the thrill of riding on the open road, I live in Minnesota, where, even in the best of winters, I'm not...

Ironman 70.3 Pan American Championships Race Report - My Dad and I flew into Panama City Wednesday evening, arriving at the hotel late we went right to bed. Thursday and Friday I was working remotely so I parked myself at breakfast for a few hours each morning and then my hotel room desk. It was a nice distraction from the race ahead and kept me off my feet and my mind occupied.

Thursday I was trying to figure out where to swim because the roof top ‘pool’ was more like a large hot tub and you can’t swim in the ocean in Panama City. Biking was also...

PANAMA 70.3 - Heather Lendway collected $6500 for her 3rd place finish at Panama 70.3 this morning. The race was the 2016 Pan American 70.3 Championships.

Heather and eventual winner Sarah Haskins came out of the water together, HL then outbiked Haskins and everyone else (2:12:43!) in the women's field. A third of the way through the run, Haskins claimed the lead. Lisa Roberts, thanks to the fastest run split of the day for the women, managed to overtake Heather, but only by six seconds.

Heather's bronze medal time was an amazing 4:10:41, a Minnesota state record (pending verification of distances), eclipsing Ruth Brennan Morrey's old mark of 4:13:46 at Kansas 70.3 in 2014.
