2017 Timberman Sprint Triathlon – A Newbie’s Experience

Cohasset, MN – July 8, 2017 (by Jessica Maher) – The weather was perfect. The sun was out, the lake was calm, and only a slight breeze. The morning was a blur. I was a nervous wreck. Tried to eat breakfast, but couldn’t. Stared at my bike a lot, and aimlessly dug through my bag looking for things I may have forgotten to lay out in my transition area.

2017 Trinona Sprint Triathlon

Winona, MN – June 11, 2017 (by Michelle Thooft) – Trinona was GREAT!!! Well, great considering I wasn’t going to do it three weeks ago. What you taught me on the bike was a life-saver. The hills really killed me (they were bigger than I remember lol) and there was a strong headwind, but I gave my kids a run for their money on the bike.

Madison, WI, September 7, 2014 (by David Lewis) Going into this Ironman the plan was simple…race. After my first IM two years ago I had felt more like a spectator than a participant. But really that is how I’ve approached all races of a new distance, just feel it out the first time and try…

More than just a race report …

(by Matt Backmann) Door County Half Iron July 20, 2014 Prep The easiest thing to say about my preparation for the middle of the 2014 season is that it was lacking. I had not regained the drive from 2013 and I understood by this point that 2014 would be a down year. It started late…
