By Ted Treise

The first part of the season is wrapped up. It started in April @ 70.3 Texas, from there we raced two more 70.3’s at St G & Des Moines along with a local duathlon then finally Heart of the Lakes Tri. The goal of this blog is to break down each section of each race of my season so far along with my thoughts behind it. The breakdown will be segmented into a few sections making it semi-readable.

The Lead Up

Going into the season I had my goals which you can read about HERE (schedule emerges pt 2) & two other things I really want to touch on are 1.) Mobility & 2.) Equipment.

For mobility, I’m doing two things – 1.) biweekly massages at Odom Health and 2.) hiring a Strength & Mobility Coach. For the massages, I really feel like this adds an edge to my program. They feel amazing and help me hit the reset button after a hard stretch of wkos....

HOPKINS ROYAL TRIATHLON PREVIEW - Typically, when we preview a race our primary goal is to stimulate additional registrations. But there are a select events that fill early, thus don't need a boost from us. Northwoods, Lake Minnetonka and Hopkins Royal are three such races. We've previewed the first two already. Today we are previewing the 7th edition of Hopkins Royal, a two-time Race of the Year recipient, and perennial nominee for that honor.

MTN likes to make predictions, so here are some about Saturday's HRT.

The following six athletes (out of the 470+ enrollees!) are our picks to claim podium spots. Let's start with the women. In alpha  order, we believe that these talented ladies with make the Top 3:

CATHERINE LEE, 47, Minneapolis (photo) - She loves this race and has podiumed here on five occasions, including a course-record win in the Super Sprint. She is racing well this year, as her 2nd at Buffalo Sprint and 4th at Door County Sprint attests. Unfortunately, she was derailed by a bee sting in her mouth (OUCH!) at 4WOMEN, which allowed her co-leader at the time, Bette Rowley, to charge on to a convincing win. She'll try to correct that next Saturday....
