Race Coverage

Dog Lovers & Flower Bikes...

A pair of intimate indoor tris took place last Sunday. One was at the Life Time Fitness club in Plymouth, where 64 athletes went the distance. The other was the LTF club in St. Louis Park, which had 34 finishers....

 

It's possible that event attendance was affected by the onset of spring weather, which sent hoards of Twin Citizens to the running paths and bike lanes. For many runners, it was their first outdoor workout wearing shorts, not tights or sweats, since before Thanksgiving. Hitting the road for cyclists was a welcome alternative to indoor workouts.

We hope that this change in the weather will stimulate registrations for early season outdoor races.

Back to the indoor events.

The top point-getter at Plymouth was a guy named GREGORY ALEXANDER who we assume is not the Aussie tri superstar with a similar name, though his margin of victory (16-points) had us wondering. Gregory rocked top-of-the-heap splits in the pool and treadmill.

What did we learn about Gregory Alexander? 

We didn't glean much when we visited his Facebook page, other than he is a friend of April Morgan, which goes a long way with us, and that he likes boats and black labs. He placed 6th last outdoor season at One Last Tri, where he topped the 40-44M category, so we were not surprised by his LTF victory.

Tied for 2nd at Plymouth were women's champ CINDY BRADEHOFT and MIKE ZIRBEL. A veteran distance runner and occasional outdoor triathlete, Cindy is an aficionado of flowery bikes (photo R), and like Gregory, she has a real cute dog. Also like Gregory, she rocked a fine (9th place) performance at One Last Tri, albeit in 2017.  She enjoys Italian food, and Arezzo Ristorante is one of her favorite places to get some of that.

Zirbel (Top photo on right) is a totally cool guy who enjoys In-N-Out Burgers, Legos and trips to Mexico and Lambeau Field. He listens to Moby, and probably agrees that his theme music for the Bourne Trilogy is the awesomest movie theme ever.

Our LTF St. Louis Park coverage will post on Friday. PLYMOUTH RESULTS

Hi Jerry, I think you are thinking of Craig Alexander?

ED. You're right, Scott.
