MINNESOTA MULTISPORT AWARDS - Determining the DUATHLETE OF THE YEAR nominees was more difficult this year than ever before. Never has there been so many great athletes to choose from. Twice in the past we have had to amend the criteria to allow athletes with two outstanding du performances, not three or more, to be considered. We are not doing that this year because many athletes have turned in...

Ruther's Kona Debut...

It was a tough day for RBM and we're anxious to hear about it. Her final time was 10:22:57.

7:55 here - Ruth's bike split was 5:19:24. She's currently in 25th place. Hey, do you remember back in the 90s when Dave Scott was 42? He was 30th entering T2 and ran his way to 5th place overall. One of the greatest IM performances ever. RBM (age 40 today! Happy Birthday Ruth!) is capable of doing what The Man did back then. We're predicting a Top 10 for her and our fingers and toes are crossed.

5:47 PM here - Despite the heat, Daniela Ryf is gunning for a women's record. RBM is not off the bike yet. Tough day for her, it appears.

10:35 - Here, 5:35 there - RUTH BRENNAN MORREY will start her Kona adventure in less than an hour. We are SOOOOO excited to see how she will do.

Kona is her third IM, after Chattanooga 146.6, with its downhill swim and 166-mile bike, and Frankfort (European Champs), which is normally a fast course, but not so this year thanks to extreme heat and humidity. Her splits at Frankfort were: 1:06:31 - 5:04:26 - 3:04:59 = 9:21:09. We're going to measure her Kona splits against these....
