Minnesota Multisport Awards - Nominations for the Most Improved award go to those whose competitive resumes demonstrate that they deserve to be ranked among the best tri/du-athletes in our region. They are usually athletes who weren't named to Team Minnesota, i.e. the season's Top 10 most...
"It's Like Going to the Bar..."

BOUS Race Coverage - Diane Hankee is a hoot. She's an outspoken Canadian--she's originally from Sasquatchuwan--who adores her prematurely gray husband but thinks that David Thompson is totally cute. When asked to comment on her Best of the US experience--she placed 19th against the toughest head-to-head women's (short course) field of the year--she became momentarily pensive then e-mailed us these uncharacteristically terse, and definitely pithy, words:
"BOUS is a great competition to keep you wanting more. It's kind of like going to the bar or a party in college. You show up and everyone is eyeing each other up wondering how good that person is. Then you party (race) and get your butt kicked by some OC hills and end up with a painful hangover..... I can't wait to do it again."...
The Joy of Running...

Isn't this a totally cool photo? It is a euphoric Cathy Yndestad gliding smoothly and briskly along the Kona coastline in a brand-spanking-new pair of K-Swiss Keahou (pronounced "Kay-ah-Hoe") trainers. Endorphins are coursing through her flabless physiology, her hair is streaming like a flag in a hurricane and she smiles uncontrollably.
She had not intended to run this fast. And she feels like she can run forever.
Quoting former middle-distance Aussie superstar Herb Elliot, Cathy "is full of running."
There's nothing like a great run, is there?....

Congratulations aplenty go out to non-morons David Thompson and Patrick Parish. DKT excelled in the 2010 Life Time Fitness Race to the Toyota Cup Series, finishing an awesome 2nd at Philadelphia and New York, a fine 4th at Chicago, a solid 7th at LTF-Minneapolis and finally, I suspect, a fatigued 9th--he did that ironman thing a few weeks back--at the Dallas US Open. In the process, he amassed $19,800 in prize money. Totally cool, you must agree? DKT's pleased. The photo (L) lucidly illustrates what David looks like when he's happy.
FYI, David does NOT lend money, so don't even think about asking.
Buzzed cranium and clad in signature compression calf guards and a Breath-Right Strip, Patrick Parish capped his 10-win 2010 season....
