Minnesota Multisport Awards (and a good weekend of workouts)

>> Monday, November 12, 2012

Saturday was BEAUTIFUL here in Minnesota. Pharmie hit the trainer for 2 hours while Henry took a nap, and I hit the road for a 25+ mile ride on a 55 degree day. (It climbed to nearly 70 before the end of the day!)

I rode through Crosby Farm (near 35E and River Road / Shepard Road) for the first time since they re-did the entrance a year or 2 ago. In fact, it may have been over 4 years since I've been down there. I snapped a few photos while riding through:

Around the pond.

Across the marshy boardwalk.

Near the west end of the park, right along the Mississippi (to the left).

That night, I headed to the "Minnesota Multisport Awards" at Gear West Bike and Triathlon. When I pulled up to Gear West, I LOVED the sign:

They had some good grub: normal snack and veggie platters, pork sandwiches, meatballs, and 2 kinds of wings!

I chatted with lots of new and old triathlon buddies, and soon we all filed into the next room for the awards:

Here is TEAM MINNESOTA 2012: the BEST multisport athletes of the year:

I'm proud to say that I beat one of those women and one of those men this year at the "kitten mile," a different woman last year at the "kitten mile," and one of the other men 2 years ago at my first "kitten mile." It's the ONLY TIME I'll finish a race faster than ANY of those awesome speedy folks above!

Then on Sunday, things cooled down. It was 39 degrees when we got up, and it was 32 degrees a few hours later when Henry and I headed out for a run. I got Henry all bundled up:

We did nearly 10 miles with the middle 4 in 6:16, 6:08, 6:17, and 6:24, and it was sleeting the whole time. When we got home, Henry was nice and comfortable and dry, but his stroller (and me) was covered in frozen sleet:

Back soon with a race entry giveaway for locals who want to race with Pharmie, Henry, and me!
