Race Coverage

Mikey's Dad & Brad's Sister...

mikeyNorth Mankato Triathlon XV - Former Mankato guy, Matt Payne, and Waukesha Wisconsin's Molly Woodford, who has a teenage brother named Brad who is super fast, too, couldn't have been more impressive this morning if they had stood on their respective heads and tooted the "Star Spangled Banner" in unison.

Okay, that would have been really impressive.

We digress.

Payne's 18th career W and Woodford's repeat victory here were commanding and convincing and imperious. In other words, they each won by a lot. Greg Taylor, 58, was amazing, too, especially his hilariously captivating monologue at the awards ....

You guessed it - it was my first tri....

Race Coverage - Heidi Keller-Miler returned to the tri lifestyle in 2005 after a 15-year absence, a period during which she delivered and raised a Madison and a Casey and an Austin and co-habitated with hubby Tom and did lots of regular life stuff. On Sunday she won the 23rd annual Lake Waconia Triathlon, the 11th tri-victory of her resurrected career.

It was a BIG win. HUMONGOUS may be a better word. Heidi likened the experience to her triumph at Turtleman in 2006 against one of the deepest women's fields ever assembled for a Minnesota multi.

The Gigantor win made Heidi very, very happy. She wanted to drink many, many of Nordica Stocker's craft beers at Ross Weinzierl's party after the race, but limited herself to just three or four 'cuz she had to drive to St. Cloud to do some family-related stuff....
