Heavy Rains/Foot Balance/Doubling Down in Wisconsin

This weekend was chock full of action. I know that some people aren't big into reading anything longer than bullet points. (I learned that while working corporate) So there is an executive summary for anyone who doesn't want to get into the details. Yes, a video recap would be more engaging, but the technology isn't quite there yet. Someday.

The Executive Summary:

* There was a monsoon Saturday morning, parts of the bike route flooded.

* Sara McLarty and I rode into each other but neither of us crashed.

* I smashed up my left foot and balanced out my foot injuries for the season.

* My dad was in town for the day and we had lunch after the race (Photo L - Dan & Dad)....

Faith Rewarded...

rainLife Time - Minneapolis Tri - It was more a matter of faith than just patience.

Apocalyptic rains, lightning and wake-the-dead thunder had the 12th annual Life Time - Minneapolis' Triathlon's entrants scurrying for cover. Many of them waited out the storm in their cars.

In case you didn't know, Brendon and Suzy are doing that Boyfriend/Girlfriend thing. Can you imagine what would happen if their relationship devolves into marriage? Their children would be above-average in every way.

Their kids, which would probably have cute names like Chip and Sophie, would be doomed to becoming awesome triathletes. Maybe even awesomer than their parents, whose last demonstration of their respective awesomeness took place at the 29th Timberman Olympic-ish Triathlon (approximate distances: 1200m - 25ish miles - 6 miles) last Saturday. In that annual classic Suzy dominated the women's race, winning by a margin of nearly five minutes. The W was her fourth of the season and 15th of her stellar career....
