SARTELL – Larry Hosch (photo) decided enough was enough when he was 256 pounds.
The former St. Joseph mayor and state representative decided to get healthy three years ago. Now he's seeing the rewards from losing 70-plus pounds.
"I showed up for my last term in the Legislature and my suit shirts didn't fit my neck. I was OK with punching another hole in the belt, but I had enough when my neck was getting too big for my clothes," Hosch said.
"I knew that's when I had to do something about it."
Hosch, 37, finished in seventh place at the Apple Duathlon on Saturday morning in Sartell with a time of 1 hour, 26 minutes and 45 seconds. It was Hosch's third time running the race....

APPLE DUATHLON - Today's Apple Duathlon was awesome! A great prelude to Nationals in two weeks. Words and photos coming soon. RESULTS.

For some triathletes, the idea of walking during the run portion of a race is out of the question. You’d rather shamble along with your last ounce of energy and fall across the finish line than walk, right? New research suggests that you should give yourself a break, showing that in longer races like a half or full iron-distance, walk breaks might be a good idea.
For the study, German researchers looked at what differences might exist between runners who used a run/walk strategy in a marathon (running for a minute and a half and then walking for a minute) and those who simply ran the entire race. They were interested in not only who was faster, but also who felt better upon crossing the finish line.....

Gear West Du Race Report - Last year I did one duathlon – Esprit de She, the day after the Almanzo 100 gravel ride (see details about that ride here: http://www.almanzo100.bike/). That was a terrible idea and left a pretty bad taste in my mouth for duathlons. Who would ever think to replace a swim with a run? Agh! But, I’m stubborn and was determined not to let duathlons defeat me. Add to that what appears to be an insatiable appetite for competition (I think Dan Hedgecock referred to this as being “en fuego” in an old blog post but I couldn’t find it so sorry if I’ve misinterpreted the meaning, Dan) and my new found enjoyment of running, and boom, two duathlons on the calendar - Cinco Du Mayo sprint and Gear West....
