Race Coverage - Jeff Grebner is a really, really nice guy. Tall, too. And he has a lovely wife and probably some kids and a dog.

We thought Jeff would win because he's a great athlete. AND because he's DUE.
When he came off the bike yesterday, it sure looked like his time had come. His lead was substantial.
At mile three of the 3.5-mile run, another guy who had yet to win his first multi, overtook Greb. He was running like a banshee....

When asked how she felt about this, she responded with a question of her own: "Well, how do you think HE feels about being married to one of the 3-4 most beautiful women in the upper Midwest?"
Great answer, huh!
Susan is very pretty. And she really liked "Bridesmaids," believing fervently that Kristin Wiig is a comic genius (She sooooo is!), and pizza with "mushrooms, black olives and a couple of pepperonis." Ah come on, Sue! Stop feeling guilty about LOVING pepperoni. Admit it. When...

Race Report - Two weeks ago I raced the Falls Duathlon here in Minnesota as a little warmup for my first pro race of the year in Knoxville. The duathlon was fine. My Gear West Bike and Tri teammate Chad Millner was eager to three peat and it would have been rude for me to get in the way.
