The Boys & Girls of Square Lake XI...

bennettSquare Lake Half - With the help of Google and Facebook, our cyber Bibles, here's some cool stuff about the Top 5 men and women at last Sunday's Square Lake Half.

1. BENNETT ISABELLA - 4:10:30 - His first MN victory (He also won the 2006 Ripon Medical Center Tri in WI). A handsome dentist, he was recently married; probably to the girl in the photo (L). He was the only one in the race who knows how to do Invisalign Orthordontics.

1. ANGIE SCHMIDT - 4:56:16 - This was the first career win for the charming Woodbury resident. In her rookie year back in 2008, she popped a 10:54:42 at Ironman Arizona. How cool is that!

Big Numbers...

One Last Tri Preview - In 2010 the 5th edition of One Last Tri drew a record 230 participants. Sunday's race could field almost THREE TIMES that many folks.

No kidding.

Almost 550 triathletes have already enrolled and we'd be surprised the ranks didn't swell by another 100 bodies by gun time.


Because the word is finally out: One Last Tri is a totally cool event! It has a great venue and courses, a celebratory atmosphere and a comfortable, low-key vibe....

IMOO Observations...


* DIVISIONAL DOMINATION - Minnesota girls took three of the Top 5 45-49 spots Sunday at the 10th edition of Ironman Wisconsin. Check it out:

1. Tara Scheetz (IL) - 11:24:24; 2. Susan Dziuban (IL) - 11:27:01; 3. JULIA LYNG (Burnsville, MN) - 11:30:14; 4. SUZANN MOUW (White Bear Lake, MN) - 11:35:37; 5. JULIA WEISBECKER (Mendota Heights, MN) - 11:39:14.

Very cool!

* ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOR - Long Lake's JAN GUENTHER, 52, finished 3rd among female amateurs in Madison. Her time was brilliant - 10:42:04 - and her margin of victory over the next fastest master (40+) was a flabby 22:52. Her margin over her nearest divisional rival, Canada's

Square Lake (Short Course) - Who the heck is Andrea Meyers?

She was the girl who, according to posted results, finished 2nd at Square Lake on Saturday. Apparently, she outraced a bevy of talented women and was beaten only by Becky Youngberg, the winningest girl on the Minnesota multi scene this year. FYI, Becky's 1:30:56 landed her in 5th place overall and was the...
