"Lots of Steak and Salt"....

During the first trimester, I couldn’t stand the smell of cooking and was only able to eat empty carbs like pasta and bagels. Thankfully, I’ve been able to return to a normal diet since my first trimester. With a squished stomach in the third trimester, I find myself eating smaller portions more frequently. Here’s what I eat in a day:   ...

Timberman Preview II....

TIMBERMAN OLYMPIC PREVIEW - Last week we previewed next Saturday's T-Man Sprint race. Today we are are analyzing  men's Olympic competition. 

Based on the last registration report we saw, here are the guys that we think will fill out the Top 6. 

 

- WADE CRUSER - Wade was victorious here in 2016, his 1:57:01 the third fastest time on this course, which has been in place since 2013. Yes, we think that Cruser, who won the Most IMproved award last year and was ranked 3rd on Team Minnesota, will repeat as champion. Helping to pave the way for him is the fact that 2016 runner-up Josh Blankenheim is not returning this year. According to his awesome girlfriend Larissa, he's gotta attend a wedding, or something. Josh has already pledged to return to Timberman in 2018.

 

- BROOKS GROSSINGER - Three-tme T-Man champ, Brooks owns three of the six fastest times on this course, including his CR - 1:54:24. We're picking Brooks to place 2nd overall on Saturday, and now that he is 40, to absolutely nuke the existing Master Record, which is 2:05:08. We believe Brooks will, as usual, break two-hours.

 

- DAVID LEWIS (photo L) - In the last two years, Dave has placed 7th and 3rd here. We predict that he will split those placings this weekend, and land in the 6th spot. We predict that places 4th through 6th will be less than a minute apart....

Ironman Boulder Race Report - 

 

Driving from Minnesota to Boulder, Co with my sister this weekend to race 140.6 miles, was a trip I will never forget. It would be the chance to see if the months of preparation and training would pay off. 1,000 miles of driving later we arrive at our home stay for the weekend, which was fantastic. Thank you Brad and Kayde for allowing us to stay in your home for the weekend, so grateful for your hospitality. We stayed about 20 miles from the race venue, which is a solid distance to cover, especially when it takes an hour to travel that far here! Being here 10 months ago, I sort of remembered how to get around... Sort of.

Duathlon Nationals Mini-Race Report - As my vacation here in Oregon comes to an end, I've been trying to figure out how to summarize my race at the Duathlon National Championships. It's hard to put some things to words, but I'll give it my best shot. If nothing else, this picture does a pretty good job...

Last year's race was only a few weeks after my accident, so finishing was a physical and mental struggle. I was determined to come back and tackle the tough course with a healthy body. This year was the same tough course and even better competition. I finished 6th overall and 3rd in my age group. It was such an amazing experience to come back feeling and racing strong....

G-Man Clearwater Preview Part I...

GRANITEMAN - CLEARWATER PREVIEW - The original Graniteman Sprint Triathlon started fourteen years ago in the village of Rockville, southeast of St. Cloud. It stayed at that site for six years before relocating to a superior venue in Clearwater. Doing the math, the G-Man-Clearwater Sprint, and its newer Olympic race, which launched in 2015, will celebrate its eighth anniversary on June 8. These are awesome events, and are part of the three-race Graniteman Tri Series....
