Race Report - Falling asleep this last Friday night was tough. As I lay in bed I was just too excited for Lifetime the next morning. I've been looking forward to this race since last July when I was 6th. Don't get me wrong, there are tons of really great races in Minnesota with beautiful courses, and friendly volunteers and Kevin O'Connor's hot dogs afterwards. But Lifetime is one of the big shows in the US, and there's nothing quite like a big race. I picked two races this year to be

Race Coverage- Some days just aren't very fast. Saturday was one of those days.

In general, the times at the 10th anniversary edition of Life Time Minneapolis were slower than in past years. And it wasn't for lack of field quality or due to extremely unaccommodating weather. Sure, there was some light chop and noticeable surface current on Lake Nokomis. There was also humidity and some wind to contend with, though not nearly as troublesome as this event has had to contend with on several occasions in the past. Also, the consistent cloud cover for the majority of the morning on Saturday minimized the severity of ...

Soooooo Much To Say...

Life Time - Minneapolis - This iconic event once again proved that it deserves its reputation as one of the premier triathlons in the World. The cool story lines are too numerous to, well, enumerate here.

And some didn't take place on the actual

Race Coverage - Jennifer Neuman hoped to go 1:09 at Minneman VII last Saturday. A 1:09:59 would have been just as satisfying as a 1:09-flat.

When Jennifer crossed the final timing mat in 1:10:08, she did what she always does when she finishes a race. She smiled.

Jen has a beautiful smile.

Achieving a time goal was not the only standard of victory for the pretty 40-year-old from Ramsey. For her, victory was already built into the equation. She trains and she races with joy and enthusiasm, and understands that doing so is a victorious way to live....

Race Coverage / Special Feature - Everyone - What an adventure we all had in the Black Hills! Don't know where to begin really as the memories are plentiful and will likely forget to mention or thank someone, if I do I apologize. So while fresh and before the race report I need to thank some specific people who got me to the finish line literally! First and foremost my rock is my wife Renee who has supported me on this journey for the past 9 months. She also had the smile and cheer at the aid stations that I looked for, and who has always believed in me...even when I didn't, love you baby! My girls Jenna (12) and Olivia (8) are my little shining lights, who think I am a little crazy...I agree.
