A few days ago, Uncle Randy (Fulton) sent us a copy of his Oakdale Duathlon entry list. After a glance, we got excited. Registrations were coming in a brisk pace and it looks like the oevent will eventually field between 400 and 500 entrants.
Though most elite athletes are not early enrollees, we were impressed with the depth of the field thus far, and assume that, by race day, Oakdale will be more competitive than ever.
The race will celebrate its 13th anniversary on May 10, though some may claim that it is actually a 25-30-year-old event, one that started in Mahtomedi (we think?) in the 80s. Uncle Randy would probably agree...

Redneck Crazy, exploits from a marathon in Arkansas
By Angie Hop
“I’m gonna lean my headlights into your bedroom window, and throw empty beer cans at both of your shadows, I didn’t come here to start a fight, but I’m up for anything tonight, you’ve gone and broke the wrong heart baby, and drove me redneck crazy” – Tyler Farr (country and western singer)

We’re only a week away from the season! I’m kicking off at the Falls Duathlon. If you’re looking for a fun and low key local race to get your season started, look no further. After that it is all about the Gear West Duathlon. My best friend Steve Stenzel and I (photo L) had a pretty intense competition in the relay event last year but this year I’m racing solo. Wishing Steve the best of luck! If you don’t know Steve you should get to know him. If you see a brightly-colored speedo-clad hobbit at a race, that’s Steve. Go up and say hi. Tell him how cool he looks. Tell him he must be the most athletic hobbit in the Shire. Tell him I sent you. Gosh we’re great friends....

Hey MN Tri guys!
With the help and support of Lakes Area Multisport, the Brainerd Family YMCA just wrapped up the last of its three part indoor tri series. The series brought in 41 participants that took part in one, two, or three of the indoor events.
As a recap, the first race took place on February 2 with all the participants covering as much ground as they could in a 10 minute swim, 30 minute bike, and 20 minute run. This race drew 9 participants with likely ...
