All Triathlon, All the Time


On your marks, get set, andale, arriba, arriba!

The 2 big series in our neck of the woods:

^Midwest Multisport: unparalleled events, brings out a combo of newbies and elites alike, and somehow gearwest Kevin figures out how to give out the best raffle gear (zipps! QRs! wetsuits!). I stay at every race till the end because one of these days I am going to hear the sweet words of Hector + zipps in one sentence.

Tri MN Series: all Minnesota, all tris, it also has a great cast of races which take you to 9 of the best 10,000 lakes.

My races:

^ 5/20/07 – Gear West Du: Orono, MN – the season opener in my opinion. Some roller, some road running, some trail-running. Start your season right.

“6/9/07 – Liberty Tri: Maple Plain – Olympic & 1/2IM – I like it, so will you.

^ 6/24/07 – Lake Waconia Tri: Best of the U.S. qualifier (#1 m/f go to nationals to crown best amateur in the nation), short and sweet.

*ok not doing, but pumped for it! 7/14/07 – Lifetime Fitness Tri: the big dog – olympic athletes, top pros, and you. Covers some of the TC marathon course and keeps growing every year.

^ 7/15/07 – Heart of the Lakes Tri: Super nice course, tons of volunteers, a must.

7/21-22/07 – Spirit of Racine Sprint & 1/2IM:My 1st Half IM 2 yrs. ago, I like WI, & this year Aaron&Mer will race it to

8/12/07 – Green Lake Tri: one of the nicest lakes in MN, this will be a fun, fast one with Chelle before IMMoo.

8/26/07 – Chicago Triathlon:I’m not doing it, but I’ll be covering it video-style!

9/9/07 – Ironman Wisconsin: the “cheese-grater,” it blows away the notion of WI being a flat state with an ez course. Let’s see how the weather volatility shakes out for ’07.
