It's a Former Zygote!

Peanut WienekeIsn't it cute? It's a fetus. It started as a zygote, then became a blastocyst, then an embryo. And now, it's a card-carrying fetus. Is that cool, or what?

This 12-week old humanoid fetus / future triathlete resides in a lovely uterine condo, which is owned and operated by Maria Vu Wieneke, wife of MTN's Darin Wieneke, a recent escapee from Alcatraz.

An official name has yet to be selected--we recommend Charlemagne for a boy or Murgatroid, if it's a girl. For the time being, he/she is referred to as Peanut Wieneke

Name Change & Sauerkraut Pizza...


The "Powers that Be" at Gustavus Adolphus College have instructed the organizers of what used to be known as the Gustie Triathlon to change the name of their event. Legal stuff. The race, the umpteenth edition of which is this Saturday (May 8), will "hereafter be known forthwith" (cool legal talk) as the "Take the Hill Triathlon." As the name hints, the bike course is not as flat as a pool table.

Cinco Du Mayo Preview: Make a Day of It...

There are many good reasons to do the Cinco Du Mayo Duathlon at beautiful Square Lake this Saturday. Here's three: Great course, Casa Lupita Tacos and hanging around the area after the race.2010-05-06
