LIFE TIME FITNESS WINTER INDOOR TRIATHLON - CHANHASSEN -  Eighty-two athletes finished the Chan. Indoor on January 20. The men were led by veteran indoor triathlete KYLE MOONEY, whose previous best finish had been a 3rd at Maple Grove in 2015. His margin of victory over 2nd placer KENNETH DOWNER was six points.

Rooney appears to be an intrepid guy. Info on his FB page suggests he's done New Mexico's arduous Mount Taylor Winter Quadrathlon, which consists of a 13-mile bike (1800 foot climb), five mile run (1200 foot climb), two mile uphill XC ski (1200 foot climb), followed by a 1-plus mile snowshoe run to the 11,301-foot summit (600 foot climb), then turn around and snowshoe, ski, run and bike down to the finish line. He may also have hiked to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. His "Likes" include Jimmy Buffett's music and TV lampoonist Daniel Tosh.

A glance at Kenneth's FB page suggests that he's a totally intrepid guy, too. Very athletic and outdoorsy. A transplanted easterner, he owns some very solid triathlon results, especially in the long stuff.

 

Winning for the women at Chan was EMILY WILLIAMS, who chalked up a one point win over veteran distance runner / triathlete JANELLE EHLERS. We' don't know anything about Emily, but we're sure that she is awesome. Janelle, on the other hand, is someone we are familiar with. She has cool fashion sense, is into snowboarding, recommends the Chicken Ciabatta at the Eden Avenue Grill, and possesses one of the best smiles in the upper Midwest.

Here are the Top 5s:

1. EMILY WILLIAMS - 199 points, 2. JANELLE EHLERS - 198 points, 3. JULIE EWASIUK - 196 points, 4.LORINDA DONALDSON - 189 points, 5. JENNA MITCHLER - 186 points.

1. KYLE ROONEY - 252 points, 2.  KENNETH DOWNER - 246 points, 3. DANIEL BERVE - 244 points, 4. CHRISTOPHER DIRKES - 239 points, 5. MIKE EWASIUK - 239 points.
