2021 AGE GROUP NATIONALS - Next wekend will mark the fourth time that Milwaukee will host the AG National Championships, and there's a very good reason for the return to The Cream City (Yes, that is Milwaukee's nickname!). Not all host cities have produced awesome Nationals, like say, Columbia, Maryland did in the mid and late 90s. And no host has been awesomer than Milwaukee. Local organizers have truly set a high bar.

We also recall the earlier Milwaukee races because our own tri-superstar HEATHER LENDWAY, won the women's title there TWICE! Great memories, indeed....

A Successful Debut...

1st ALEXANDRIA TRIATHLON - Using a HS yearbook metaphor, BRIAN STORHAUG (photo) and COREY NYGAARD came into the race as the men's "Most Likely To Succeed." On the women's side, the same could be said for JOELLEN KOHLMAN-PETRICK.

Those athletes lived up to their designations, though Kohlman-Petrick had to contend with a very pesky local woman named KADIE HOKANSON, a lapsed triathlete who has successful results, albeit prior to 2011.  

Joellen led, though not by a huge margin, until the run, when Hokanson steadily closed the gap. Kadie got within 16-seconds when she ran out  of race course.

2020 Minnesota Grand Master of the Year LISA HINES, 58, filled out the women's Top 3....

Now, for scheisse and giggles, let's make some predictions....

CHISAGO LAKES SPRINT - The last time DEANA JAGIELO and KRISTEN HAWKINS faced each other--Buffalo Olympic--Hawkins came out on top. Against one of the two strongest fields this year, she placed 9th, and Deana took 11th. Yesterday, Deana not only reversed that order, she won the race, with Hawkins taking 2nd, performances we suspect were very satisfying for both athletes....

CHISAGO LAKES HALF IRONMAN - KARL NYGREN's first tri was the Chisago Lakes Half in 2019. Pretty bold. He jumped right over sprint and Olympic. His result was admirable, a 4:30:12 which landed him in the overall Top 15. Guy's got potential, right? Who knows, he might even bark with the Big Dogs some day? ...
