You Shoulda Been There...

chisagoThe Chisago Lakes Half and Sprint was ginormous, drawing more than 1600 participants. The day was clear and and sunny relatively windless and waited until most of the half racers had de-biked before it became truly calefacient, which is a pedantic way to say "hot."

Pure Drivel...

WARNING! Much of what you are about to read is made up. The rest is pure drivel.cats

There will be many tight and interesting battles in the AGs at this Sunday's Chisago Lakes Sprint Triathlon. But none will be more interesting than the duel that will take place in the women's 55-59 category.


Because the top two contenders are very evenly matched.

St. Paul'sdkt David Thompson currently leads the men's Race to the Toyota Cup points standings. He's raced in the first three Life Time Fitness Tri Series events, finishing 2nd at Philadelphia and New York City and taking 7th at Life Time Fitness-Minneapolis.
