There is a totally cool one-of-a-kind event (that we're aware of) on March 12. It's called the Tri Fitness Beat the Freeze Biathlon.
The event is staged at Bald Eagle Lake north of White Bear Lake and starts at a totally great time: 11 AM. It consists of running or snowshoeing or XC skiing one mile loops with Paint Ball Stations after each lap.
How outrageously cool is that!
The Beat the Freeze Bi is all about fun and participants receive a race beanie. Paint balls/guns are provided as well as great refreshments...

Our All Time favorite triathlete / Realtor is Laura Sampsell Hoffman. Why? Because she advertises on MTN. And because she's totally cute and sweet and interesting, too. (see hot photo L)
Over coffee I explained to Laura that my house sucks. When MY WIFE bought the place she did not take into account all the little things that are important to me as a triathlete. Nor did she enlist the aid of a Realtor who was also an endurance athlete. Instead, she based her selection of a house on criteria that was important to HER, i.e. that it was close to a good elementary school, Cub and Leeann Chin....

The Life Time Fitness Minneapolis Triathlon is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year. If you have experienced this race in the past, you know that Life Time is to Minnesota triathlon what the Academy Awards is to actors. Lifetime is about as glitzy and glamorous as it gets in our triathlon scene. There is a buzz that you start to feel at packet pick-up at the Minneapolis Convention Center, it continues the morning of the race when you witness the sea of bikes in transition, and it reaches a near peak when some of the top professional triathletes in the world toe the line....
