Going "Off Course - As a grad student at Iowa State University, Minneapolis multisporter Jennifer Fitzharris-Funk taught "Human Sexuality." If you ever want to know about where babies come from or why guys are in "The Mood" all the time and girls aren't, then JF-F is the one to ask. And though there were 150+ students in her class, Jennifer never developed an elephantine ego because she knew more about naughty stuff than they did.
Being a sex expert, or "Sexpert," isn't the only cool or disturbing thing about JF-F. On the cool side, she loves craft beer and "The Jiffy," which is an awesome burger that is served at The Blue Door. What makes this burger special is that it has peanut butter on it. No kidding. It also has lots of bacon.
Speaking of bacon, another cool thing about Jennifer is that she, like most men, believe that there isn't anything that can't be improved by the addition of crispy, salty, shredded swine flesh....

Going Off Course - Last week we shared Greg Dummer's 2013 tri highlights. Today we introduce you to the non-athletic side of this remarkable guy. He's well-traveled and highly cultured. He can conversate in four languages and has had a couple of unbelievably harrowing experiences, the kind that you see in action movies. He loves Doritos, has changed poopy diapers and may be the most accomplshed person we've ever gone "Off Course" with. Please read his answers to our questionnaire and see if you don't agree.
And yes, his wife totally looks like Jennifer Connelly.
Name? Greg Dummer
Age? 43 in December
Where you live now? Southwest Minneapolis – right by Lake of the Isles and Cedar Lake....

YOUR PEERS - We have said many times (twice actually) that our goal is to eventually write stuff about every single Minnesota multisport athlete. To date, we've written stuff about a couple-of-hundred-or-so of them. We only have about 22,000 to go.
Today we are gonna say stuff about one of our favoritest people. Her name is Carol Marston. She's over thirty and has an awesome smile that never rests, and great legs. An eternal optimist, she is terminally likeable. She lives in Mankato and enjoys music and food and hanging out with good friends like Mike Borneke, Gretchen Sadaka and Cheryl Johnson....
Don't Eat That!

Q: What are some foods you consistently see triathletes eating that they should avoid?
I love this question! Here are three of my top “skip ’em” foods:
1. Reduced fat peanut butter.
At a quick glance it sounds promising, but look further and you’ll find that reduced fat versions of this favorite food will only save you 10–20 calories per 2 tablespoon serving, and will cost you in terms of more carbs, more...
