LIFE TIME ST. LOUIS PARK INDOOR TRIATHLON #2 - VICTORIA PHILLIPPI won the January indoor at the SLP club, and she successfully defended her title in race #2 at that venue last Sunday.

In January, tri vet Kathryn Jensen was her closest rival. This time around, it was KATE BARNETT who gave Victoria a run for her money,  but it was Phillippi's swim/run combo once again that sealed the deal for her, though it shuld be said that her bike performance was not too shabby either.

FYI - Victoria was coming off a very solid 5-mile effort (17th - 31:47) at O'Gara's Irish Run two weeks prior.

As for Barnett, she capped her 2018 outdoor tri season with a 7th place finish at Hopkins Royal, which matched her 2017 performance there. ..

 

Kate's most recent endurance performance, we think, was her impressive 2nd at the IDS Stair Climb on March 2.

Phillippi is a UW-River Falls (awesome school!) grad who owns and operates Run4PRs Coaching. Barnett is a St. Olaf (also a great school!) grad who likes Beck's "Nicotine & Gravy" (Who doesn't?). In 2013, she fed a lamb (photo). Or maybe it was a goat?

Leading the way for the men at SLP Indoor #2 were FABIAN LIESNER and STEPHEN MEYER, both of whom garnered 97 points. Meyer had a sizable lead on everyone after the swim, but Liesner, a highly educated / accomplished German guy, chipped away at that margin in the other two disciplines. RESULTS
