ED. LAMS is an awesome tri club frm the Brainerd Lakes area. Those folks know how  to party! Let's meet one  of their board members today. He's an extremely tall guy named Mike Hushagen

 

MEET THE LAMS BOARD: Mike Hushagen (who's hoggin')

WORST RACE? 
I haven't had a race go bad, but one of the toughest was the Liberty half ironman in 2016. High humidity and temperatures in the mid 90s made for a pretty rough run. 

GOAL FOR THE YEAR? 
For 2018 I'm trying some new races. My first ultra (Chippewa 50k), my first mountain bike race (Lutsen 39er), and the Superiorman half which I've never done before.

FAVORITE WORKOUT? 
My favorite workout is the hilly summer group rides. There are some really fun routes in the Lakes area! ...

 

BIGGEST WEAKNESS? 
I need to do more cross training to improve my core strength and flexibility. It seems like that is always a lower priority than swim/bike/run but it shouldn't be!

BEST RACE? 
Probably the Bemidji Blue Ox half marathon last fall. I set an ambitious goal and all through training I wasn't sure if I could reach it. On race day it all came together and I paced it perfectly to finish with nothing left in the tank, coming in just under my goal time.

DREAM RACE? 
My dream race is Ironman Canada which I will hopefully make a reality in 2019. It looks absolutely beautiful out there!

RANDOM FACT:
I once caught a puffer fish by hand at one of the Pearl islands off the coast of Panama. Also, I like ketchup on my scrambled eggs.

 

ED. What is your favorite race? Your favorite workout? Your best and worst racing experiences? Let us know. We'd love to feature you in a post like this one.
