Big Wins for Sander & Mercer....

sarahThe same three guys who made the podium at last year's Lake Minnetonka Triathlon did likewise at today's version--the colonel sanders7th--of this revered event. But they didn't finish in the same order. Four-time LMT champ Brett Lovass, winner in '09, took 2nd this time around and last season's runner-up, Josh Blankenheim took 3rd.

Congrats, Haags!

In addition to being a tremendous multisport athlete, Scott Penticoff is a totally cool guy. And burgerhonest and trustworthy, too, in case those qualities aren't covered by his total coolness.

Scott claims that Newt's--A Local Tradition Since 1980!--serves the best burger in the whole goshdarn state of Minnesota, not just Rochester, where it is located.

We trust Scott and plan to meet him and whoever else chooses to join us at Newt's after this Sunday's RochesterFest Triathlon. NEWT'S WEBSITE. Everybody's invited! Scott plans to get "The Works" burger: 3/4 pound of of beef with everything on it and a full pound of fries. We're thinking of getting "Todd's Burger," which includes several strips..
