Several triathletes with strong Minnesota ties excelled at the North American 70.3 Championships in hilly St. George, Utah last weekend. Check out these performances:

TED TREISE - Sophomore pro / 2020 Minnesota Triathlete of the Year lowered his 70.3 personal best from 4:08:29  at Augusta 2018, to 4:07:33 on the vastly more challenging southern Utah course. As a newcomer to pro racing he is focused as much on beating elite amateurs as he is on being competitive with established professional stars. He almost occomplished that last weekend, as only one elite amateur, Andrew Hall,  Utah's premier non-pro long distance triathlete according to Utah Tri Buzz, had a faster time. Hall, who like  Teddy, also PRed, his 4:04:58 bettering his prior best (4:07) by more than two minutes. ...

Texas 70.3 Race report! /weekend recap: Galveston was a major milestone in our lives lately. It has been around 600 days since we have gotten to do what we love to do: Race.

We left Wednesday afternoon to make sure that we got there in time for the chaos that seems to follow us around to settle before the race. Good thing we did. Our flight went to MSP then Houston. During our stop in MSP I looked up rental cars just in case this shuttle didnt work out but I couldn't find any. Every site said sold out. We both looked at 7 different sites all saying sold out. The plane was leaving so we agreed to look once we got to Houston.

Upon arrival we went to the rental car parking garage that was 100% empty. We asked and they were indeed 100% sold out of cars. We asked if there was an event, they said no this happens every day... poor planning on their part but whatever. So we requested an uber for the hour car ride and got super lucky! It was a pickup!! 2 bikes and full luggage it was the only way we would make it. During the drive I ordered Pizza to be waiting for us at the air bnb. About 5 minutes later I realized that I messed up the address. I called back 5 times but no one answered. Hopefully they would call back and deliver it down the street?   ...
