Trinona Coverage - Road construction has forced the alteration of Trinona's intermediate bike course for the last two years. The route is approximately five  kilometers shorter than the standard 1.5K - 40K - 10K. This explains why the frontrunner's threw down such fast times yesterday. It shoulld be noted that Trinona's bike course, full distance or shortened version, is seriously challenging. Most would agree that Trinona's international bike course is the toughest in our region....

Race report—Pigman Sprint Triathlon - The weekend of Trinona I will graduate high school.  This winter, as I planned for this summer’s schedule, I wanted to focus on transitioning to what racing will look like as an adult.   For the last several years my first weekend in June was tied up by draft legal racing.  So, this summer I decided to step back from the elite draft legal series and race more local options.  One of the races I had heard great things about and was eager to try was Pigman.  Since this was also billed as the Iowa High School State Championship I was extra motivated to try and hit this race hard....

Word of the Day: TETRAHEDRON...

The 5th annual SWIM-Off to Summer was our largest field ever with well over 200 registered and coming from all over the midwest. It was also our most competitive one to date. Just getting into the event was competitive, as it sold out back in April this year. Race day conditions were ideal, as the Friday rain storms gave way to overcast skies, similar air/water temps, and calm water. Those that stuck around afterwards enjoyed burgers and ice cream sundaes, plus lots of fun treats people brought to share. The only issue of the morning was me confusing people as I described the race course and using interjecting "tetrahedron" every other sentence as a reference to the shape of the buoys. I'll get that cleared up by next year!

In the .3 mile (sprint) distance race, Greg Breheim (6:43), Tyler Gerst (8:10), and Kyle Sweeney (9:40) came in 1, 2, and 3 respectively for the men. Linda Green (7:20), Bryce White (8:08), and Allison Brunner (10:14) came in that way for the women....
