Hanna Versus Gaby...


MINNESOTA MULTISPORT HONORSFEMALE TRIATHLETE OF THE YEAR. 2017 Triathlete of the Year GABY BUNTEN had a near perfect resume in 2018, one that was clearly superior to her '17 scorecard.

Brainerd Triathlete / Ultrarunner Completes Moab 240...


By Mike Aulie (Brainerddispatch.com)

By almost anyone's definition, Julie Moulton is crazy.
The Brainerd High School graduate has taken her passion for ultra-trail running to the ultimate level. From Oct. 12-16, she completed the Moab 240 Endurance Run, a 238.3-mile, five-day foot race through some of Utah's most beautiful and challenging terrain....

Why Patrick?


MINNESOTA MULTISPORT HONORS - As with the MOST IMPROVED - WOMEN category, the men's PERFORMANCE OF THE YEAR was a very close race, with every nominated effort worthy of the final honor.

Why then, did PATRICK PARISH's victory at Lake Waconia rise to the top?

Let's Break it down, starting with TED TREISE's win at Augusta 70.3.

On paper, Ted's 4:08:29 was the fastest "official" 70.3 clocking by a Minnesota male in 2018. Unofficially, though, he probably had a faster race at Superior Man, where the swim was significantly longer than 1.9K.

At SM, though, he was beaten by a small margin--51 seconds--by Sean Cooley, the man who has reigned as our state's premier half IM racer for the past few years.

Next, we checked on Ted's closest competition at Augusta, a South Carolinian named Nathan Buttrick. The guy is "for real," with a 70.3 PR of 4:02 and a sub-9-hour IM best. The fact that Ted beat him and won the race proved that his nomination was well-earned.

Why then, didn't Ted win?

Well, let's look at WADE CRUSER's nominated course record victory at Maple Grove Olympic in 1:54:18...

Ironman Wisconsin Race Report - Hi Everyone!....I wrote a guest post for this site last year sharing my running through pregnancy and the start of my return-to-running postpartum, (re-read that post HERE!) Remember how I ended being first female overall during the Ironman Wisconsin Friends and Family 5K at only six-weeks postpartum? Well, that turned out to just be the beginning of my Ironman success and apparently it lit a flame to complete an actual Ironman. Well, it happened on September 9, 2018!
