6th Annual FALLS DUATHLON - Diane Hankee and Julie Hull threw down on the competition in Cannon Falls last Saturday. They finished one-two overall and set records in the process. For Hankee, it was her 20th multi win since relocating to Minnesota from Saskatewan a decade ago. Her time was 1:11:41, which lowered Jenn Scudiero's year-old race record by fifty-one seconds.
Hull, 42, turned in a 1:14:37 which bested her PR here by 1:01 and took down Taryn Dahl's MCR by 6:21. FYI, Julie shared the 40-44 winner's circle with her husband, Erik, who is a totally cool guy.
This year's men's field was strong and was won in a quasi-upset by Joe Johnson, who outraced pro CR holder Devon Palmer (2nd), and amateur course record holder, Brian Sames (3rd). Approximately 200 athletes participated. RESULTS

Race Report - I’ve been a huge fan of the Leadman race concept and brand since its infancy in 2011. I missed the very first race (I was still in a shoulder sling), but I’ve raced in every Leadman event since-Vegas 125, Bend 250, Bend 125, Tempe 125. Each deserving their own background story, but I’ll spare you all that history. Basically the Leadman concept is long swim, longer bike and shorter run with the intention of preserving the body while still providing athletes with an epic long distance event challenge. And you get a fancy belt buckle for meeting specific time standards! ....

Redneck Crazy, exploits from a marathon in Arkansas
By Angie Hop
“I’m gonna lean my headlights into your bedroom window, and throw empty beer cans at both of your shadows, I didn’t come here to start a fight, but I’m up for anything tonight, you’ve gone and broke the wrong heart baby, and drove me redneck crazy” – Tyler Farr (country and western singer)
In early March I partook in a marathon which was a vacation arrived by participating in a road trip with a destination of Arkansas. Yes, I said Arkansas. The definitions as labeled by the Urban Dictionary are listed below: ....

Hey MN Tri guys!
With the help and support of Lakes Area Multisport, the Brainerd Family YMCA just wrapped up the last of its three part indoor tri series. The series brought in 41 participants that took part in one, two, or three of the indoor events.
As a recap, the first race took place on February 2 with all the participants covering as much ground as they could in a 10 minute swim, 30 minute bike, and 20 minute run. This race drew 9 participants with likely ...

RACE REPORT - Lifetime fitness did a fab job again with this Leadman Tempe race. For holding 3 distances they do a great job with individualizing the three distances but leveraging the shared course. We've done all of the Leadman 125k/250k distances (except the first yr in Vegas) and enjoyed this race as much as the others.
Erik and I had an "off" season last yr and found renewed energy for SBR as 2013 season came to close. I changed some things up in the off season to keep things fresh, but had this tri on the radar since the start of the yr.
Tempe was a balmy 85+ degrees and I knew hydration was a key factor. I planned on using UCAN during the race and in a new endurance fueling...
