Race Coverage - La Crosse, Wisconsin's Brent Sinn won the Treadman Duathlon for the 4th time last Saturday. He was also victorious there in 2009, 2008 and 2007. Sinn's margin of victory over runner-up Peter Guidinger, 49, of Winona was a greedy 3:47. Guidinger was also 2nd in this event back in 2006.
The final men's podium spot went to St. Luis Park's Chip Tabor.
Sharing the Winners Circle with Sinn was 2011 Rookie of the Year nominee Ruth Brennan Morrey, who picked up her 3rd win in five starts this season. She anchored her performance with a 21:51 split over the 3.6 mile run course, a 6:04 per mile average. Only Sinn had a faster split (21:12 / 5:54-pace)....

Stream of Consciousness Race Coverage - Jennifer Strange is a very pretty girl. And she's totally skilled at applying eye make-up (photo), not that she needs that stuff to be pretty.
When she got married, she wore a very, very long, very white dress. In the photo here she's walking up a flight of concrete steps in her very, very long, very white dress. It, the dress, must have gotten really, really dirty, which is kinda sad because it's such a beautiful dress that must have cost more than $100 and is intended to only be worn only two or three times.
Jennifer is a pretty goshdarn good duathlete. And it's about time MTN wrote some stuff about her....

I can't stress enough how great he's been letting us sleep through the night and how awesome my wife is in allowing me to disappear for an entire weekend to prance around in Lycra on the other side of the country. With the important stuff out of the way, here's a long-winded recap of some race I just did....

By Jamie Heying
my race report: This was my third attempt at the Burrito and by
far the funniest. We started the roadtrip at 2:30 am from Buffalo. We
picked up the other two members of "Team Tiger Blood" and I drove us up to
the race. We got there for packet pick-up, unloaded and had 10 minutes...
