FALL CLASSIC DUATHLON - The 9th edition of this "rescued" (By Derek Lindstrom at Excelsior Running, an awesome guy and successful running and multisport coach) event was staged at Lake Elmo Park Reserve yesterday. The star of the show, in our opinion, was JENN SCUDIERO, who placed 3rd overall and finished 13:04 ahead of the 2nd-pacing woman.
The victory was 14th of Scudiero's duathlon career. She is a former US Duathlete of the Year (2013) and overall (2013) and AG (2014, 2015, 2016) National Champion.
Jenn also won this race in 2014.
Winning for the men was 41-year-old Duluthian JUSTIN CUMMINS (photo), who podiumed in his AG and placed 21st overall at Sprint Du Nationals in Bend, Oregon on June 25. He kicked off the 2016 season with a 4th place (1st AG) finish at Cinco Du Mayo Long Course....

Ironman Madison is checked off and in the books! The spectators and the hills on the bike did not disappoint. The volunteers were amazing and the weather was sunny and cool! We were definitely blessed with a perfect day to do an Ironman!!
This race was different than any other race. It has been a tough training season so there was a whole other fear factor going into this race. The IM is such a long day and you really don’t know what could possibly happen out there on the race course. My anxiety went to a new level with not knowing how my body was going to handle combining doing an IM and having MS. My body did not disappoint and did an amazing job with no MS symptoms during the day. Thank you body for being awesome and letting me do another IM! I am grateful that I received the infusions to help with my symptoms even though it took a toll on my heart and liver. After a...

Every year, a day rolls around where I and many others in Madison feel 50 times more hungover and lazy than we actually are. It’s the day of Ironman Wisconsin.
On my way to work at the Herald this Sunday, I had to avoid roped-off streets, backed-up traffic and increased police roadblocks until I was finally able to reach State Street. It was there that I paused and watched some of the most dedicated...

I did it. I finished my first outdoor triathlon season, and it flew by like the blink of an eye. It’s sad to be done, but I’m looking forward to mixing up my training a bit over the fall and winter months. Sure, I’ll miss racing triathlon, but I’ll just have to choose different forms of racing to satisfy the competitive spirit in me.
I learned a lot about myself throughout the course of the summer, and if I were to go deeper into what triathlon means to me and how it has transformed me, it would end up boring everyone. So I’ll take a different approach and share some of the sillier triathlon reflections, or tri-flections.
1.) Don’t expect to get a good night’s sleep the night before a triathlon. The night before the YWCA Women’s Tri, I just couldn’t...

Superior Man Race Report - After Toughman’s bike disaster, I really wanted to race one more time before Kona. Mentally, I needed a confidence booster, rather than going into my A race a little shaky and, honestly, kinda questioning my abilities. So, once we found a great deal on a hotel downtown Duluth, I signed up (the week of!) for one of Minnesota’s favorite triathlons – Superior Man 70.3. My only hesitation: jumping off a boat into a bay of Lake Superior (because I’m a wimp when it comes to cold, and for the...
