An Act of Contrition....

heatherBy Hank O'Hare

Stuff About One Last Tri - MTN already posted partial results for One Last Tri, which took place back on September 16. The event endured a major timing snafu, for which the service provider later explained his situation and apologized profusely for the problems, and though results have finally been generated, it's still not clear whether they are trustworthy.

While race organizers are totally bummed, fearing that many of their participants left the event with frowny faces and negative reviews, the actual vibe at the event wasn't an unhappy one. Quite the opposite. It appeared that most of the entrants enjoyed the experience and and understood that, "these things happen occasionally."...

Royal Treatment, Sinn-ing in Pine Island & Ruther Rocks Provence...

batgirlsIRON GIRL - BLOOMINGTON VIII - The 8th annual Iron Girl Du, where all participants are treated like royalty, happened last Sunday at Normandale Lake Park. Dedicated duathlete Jennifer Scudiero of Eagan capped her awesome podium-filled 2012 season with her awesomest effort yet, a convincing victory that is her second career W. She also won this year's Dubuque Du.

Second place went to Lakeville's Joyce Bourassa, whose '12 resume also features a pair of wins--Lakefront Days and Lake Marion Sprint. Joyce and her much taller friend sometimes dresses up in leather Batman outfits (photo), which is kinda...

Ironman Wisconsin Race Report - I don't want to make this a super long post because I am still trying to get my life back together after being gone for four days and then I am leaving in two days to see one of my athletes finish her first triathlon out in Malibu, California.

I had a great day in Wisconsin but it didn't turn out the way I had planned, some things went out of the plan but that is what happens during an Ironman - you have to expect the unexpected.

We packed up the van on Friday, there were three kids and three adults and I wasn't sure if we were going to be able to get it all in there. We were pretty packed in!

"The Race of My Life"....

logoHy-Vee 5150 US Champs Race Report - When I left my job at Target I dedicated everything I had to training and racing and spent the last two years relying on the help of friends and family to chase after the foolhardy dream of being a professional triathlete. Most of the time my life feels like a bi-polar disorder. Sometimes I'm training completely alone in the freezing cold pitch black of a Minnesota winter and sometimes I'm spending Monday afternoon riding my road bike on gorgeous rural roads with great friends. Sometimes I'm dropping huge chunks of time in training and doing workouts I couldn't have seriously considered just a....

Before signing up for IMoo 2012 I made sure I had my family onboard and was willing to help me reach my goals. Lee even spent our 14th wedding anniversary in Madison working a run aid station so I could register the following day. This year it was our 15th year anniversary and we were back in Madison.
