ED. We got an email for CycleHealth a few days ago. You may have gotten it, too. Even if you did, read it again. It's good stuff.

Age-Group Prize Money?
Saturday, 09 April 2016 00:10
The trend reflects the changing role of age-groupers in triathlon.
By Susan Lacke (triathlon.competitor.com)
In recent years, prize purses for professional triathletes have been significantly reduced—the HyVee triathlon, once a 1.1 million dollar event, is no more; the Life Time Tri series cut the majority of its professional prize purse; Ironman has redistributed its prize money and eliminated pro races at several events.
But that doesn’t mean prize purses have disappeared altogether. Instead, more and more races are offering cash winnings to amateur age-group athletes in hopes of attracting a large competitive field. Entrants in 2016 Toughman events, for...

ED. In case you haven't read Triathlete.com's coverage of Gwen Jorgensen's victory in New Zealand, here it is. It's good stuff.
The second round of the ITU World Cup circuit threw up another round of outstanding sprint racing which saw Richard Murray (RSA) repeat and Gwen Jorgensen (USA) continue her unbeaten run. Both have had confident starts to the 2016 season and Rio Olympic build up and today executed perfectly timed performances to claim wins at New Plymouth.

When the MTN Guys think about the the St. Cloud area's multisport scene, four things come immediately to mind: Pammy Stevens, teenage girls, the Apple Duathlon and "Minnesota Nice." Working from latter to former, let's break this down:
"Minnesota Nice" - There is a sense of community in St. Cloud's multi world that is, in our opinion, unrivaled in our state. The friendships are deep and abiding and the vibe is supremely welcoming. Hang out with Pam and Daryl (photo L), Nikki, Cindy, Judy and Mike, Adam and Raechel, Cheri, Kathy, Andy Z et al for five minutes and you'll know what we're talking about. They are truly lovely folks.
"Apple Duathlon" - Started during Woodrow Wilson's second term, The Apple, which is produced and executed by many of the people mentioned above, is simply, in our humble opinion, the best duathlon in America....

Over the last week or so, a whole bunch of our appliances have shown signs of age.
First, the handle on our microwave ripped off. Sheared the screws that held the handle in place right in half. We did a little investigative work and discovered the microwave was built (and installed above the stove) in 1997. More investigation revealed that they no longer make the model OR the replacement handle. Until we have the time to go shopping for a new one, we are left with plying open the door with a screwdriver in order to nuke our food....
