Race Preview - The 30th edition of the Morris Tinman will take place next Saturday. The 1k-30k-10k event is our state's annual outdoor tri kickoff event and we hope it has a record turnout.
The race actually started 31 years ago but the 2008 edition had to be cancelled due to a 14-inch snowdump on the eve of the event. According to Weather Underground the conditions for next Saturday's race will not include snow and temps should be in the low 50s.
Last year's Tinman was won by Ryan DeYounge of Fergus Falls, and Apple Valley's Bette Rowley. Do you know them? We only know them by their race results, so in order to learn more about them, we visited their Facebook pages. We discovered that in addition to being fine athletes, they appear to be very cool people.
Bette has great taste in movies. We know this because she likes many of the same movies that the MTN Guys like. One of her faves is "Juno," which, in our opinion, was the awesomest movie of 2007....

Race Report - I’ve been a huge fan of the Leadman race concept and brand since its infancy in 2011. I missed the very first race (I was still in a shoulder sling), but I’ve raced in every Leadman event since-Vegas 125, Bend 250, Bend 125, Tempe 125. Each deserving their own background story, but I’ll spare you all that history. Basically the Leadman concept is long swim, longer bike and shorter run with the intention of preserving the body while still providing athletes with an epic long distance event challenge. And you get a fancy belt buckle for meeting specific time standards! ....

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)
In early March I partook in a marathon which was a vacation arrived by participating in a road trip with a destination of Arkansas. Yes, I said Arkansas. The definitions as labeled by the Urban Dictionary are listed below: ....
