The women's podium: Ruth, Jenn and Dani. Two records and a PR!
FALLS DUATHLON - They came in like a pair of wrecking balls and smithereenisized the women's pro and amateur records at the 8th annual Falls Du last Saturday. Actually, there wasn't a prior pro record, but if there was one, Ruth would have nuked it.
Rochester's Ruth Brennan Morrey, a two-time US Elite Duathlete of the Year, and Dani Vsetecka, Minnesota's 2015 Rookie of the Year, managed to crack the 1:10 mark on Falls' 2-14-3 course, RBM by a sick 4:23, Dani by twelve seconds. The fastest women's clocking in the first seven editions of this event was Suzie Fox's 1:11:39, set in 2015, the year Ms. Fox won eleven multis and was named Minnesota Triathlete of the Year and USAT Duathlete of the Year Honorable Mention....

St. Anthony's Race Report - I knew this race was going to be tough with World Champions, Olympians, repeat 70.3 champions and past St. Anthony’s champions on the start line. Oddly, I never really got too nervous in the week or even days leading into the race. I was feeling much more confident heading into this race just knowing I was healthy throughout my training and not fighting an extended illness like my last training block. It also helps that it was the second time I’d be racing on the course and I’ve now raced many of the athletes on the start list, so I had a good idea of what to expect....

Pain. Suffering. Misery.
As an endurance athlete, you’re going to encounter pain. You’re also expected to be able to tolerate and manage that pain. Even love it. The experience of pain is a complex combination of physiological and psychological factors. It is both a sensory and an emotional experience and some of us deal with it better than others.
If you haven’t put in the hours (not trained) and you don’t feel prepared for your race (not confident), you are going to suffer. It is going to hurt no matter how mentally tough you are. That being said, your ability to tolerate the pain of exertion is as much mental as it is physical....

A pro since 2013, Ruther is a two-time US Elite Duathlete of the Year. Her career, which began in earnest in 2012, features 31 starts, with 15 victories and eight other podiums.
Though her career is young, she certainly deserves to be ranked among our country's best female duathletes ever.
Currently, Falls does not have a women's pro course record, but it will after tomorrow. The amateur CR is Suzie Fox's 1:11:39, set in 2015. We would ...
