Becoming "One" With Dirt

Triathlon is my passion but sometimes you just gotta go off the beaten path.
For the past few years I have gotten to know a few XTerra guys. They've shared with me their adventures and I have to say I've been a bit envious. One particular friend is a well seasoned triathlete and also an XTerra World Champion. He does quite well in triathlon, usually in the top three and so I asked him if he has any adverse effects from the cross training. He was adamant in that he feels that it helps him stay focused, break up any potentially monotony and gives him the chance to just go out and play even harder.

There isn't a better duathlon in America
Sure, some dus are larger and some feature fancier staging--bells and whistles that mean little if the event isn't expertly produced and participants aren't treated like rock stars.
Since 2000, the year The Apple hosted the USAT Age Group Duathlon National Championship, this event has done everything right. We have founders/directors Daryl and Pam Stevens and their "Committee of Carers" to thank for this. These folks were completely dedicated to satisfying the participants of their event.

Naw. Cathy Yndestad did not turn 40. She's got nine years to go before she reaches that milestone.
The number 40 is significant in her life, nonetheless. You see, last Sunday at the Gear West Duathlon, a race that she has won thricely, the 2009 USAT Athlete of the Year recorded her 40th career multisport victory.
Congratulations, CY! You are awesome.
PS: And speaking of awesome, 2009 US Master of the Year nominee who does a great impression of Arnold Schwartzenegger, Greg Taylor of Mankato, won the 55-59M AG at Ironman St. George on May 17.
