Diane's Awesome Double...Updated

black eyePaynesville Coverage -

Lino Lakes' Diane Hankee has done something this season that no other Minnesota multisporter has done: Win two races on the same weekend! And she significantly overhauled the womens course records in both events. On Saturday she took a five minute-ish bite out of the CR at squishy Lakefront Days. Today (Sunday) she masticated 11 minutes from the old mark at irriguous Paynesville.

Her breath must smell like Victory.

Her win today was not without peril. Her husband Mike, who rocked a 3rd place overall finish, kicked her in the face during the swim. Through a wry grin afterwards, he claimed the incident was accidental. She's still steamed. Her wound was not quite as extensive or gruesome as the one in the photo, but we posted the shot because we liked it and we don't have a pic of Diane's traumatized physiognomy....

A Letter From Micki...

Hey MTN - Hope you are having a great summer!! John and I are racing The San Francisco Triathlon...well John is racing tntI am hoping not to be shark bait in the swim or a beached whale on the run...We are doing the race with Team in Training and John is an Honoree again for the San Francisco TNT chapter. Since we decided to do this last minute we are looking for a fast and easy way to get the word out to help get donations....

of course I thought of you and your website.

I know John isn't big on advertising or talking about his cancer but I was thinking maybe a Q and A from you on your website would be a positive way to promote our TNT fundraising...
