The Big 4-0...

CY at GW DuNaw. Cathy Yndestad did not turn 40. She's got nine years to go before she reaches that milestone.

The number 40 is significant in her life, nonetheless. You see, last Sunday at the Gear West Duathlon, a race that she has won thricely, the 2009 USAT Athlete of the Year recorded her 40th career multisport victory.

Congratulations, CY! You are awesome.

PS: And speaking of awesome, 2009 US Master of the Year nominee who does a great impression of Arnold Schwartzenegger, Greg Taylor of Mankato, won the 55-59M AG at Ironman St. George on May 17.

Making a Comeback Without Making a Scene...

By Bonnie Vivify

If there's one thing I should be good at it's making a come-back to training. In fact, I should be a pro at it by now, unfortunately.

No, you do the three events back to back, not over the course of the summer.... Yes, people die.... No I have not yet seen someone die in the swim and I hope that I never do... Yes, we are all crazy."
