Photos from the Chisago Lakes Triathlon (and Examiner Thoughts)

>> Saturday, July 31, 2010

A week ago, I posted photos from Matt’s first triathlon at the Chisago Lakes Triathlon. Here are a few more (non-Matt) photos from the race:

Pharmie and I got to watch the female sprint race unfold. Jenny Wilcox came out of transition about 30 seconds behind the lead female. Jenny cracked a smile as we were cheering for her when she started the run:



She ended up SMOKING the 5K run, passing the lead female, winning the race, and set a new course record in the process! Here she is getting ready to enter the park as she nears the finish:


Congrats Jenny!!

Local stud Patrick Parish came in first off the bike, and only added to his lead by running a sub-17:00 5K on a usually slow course! Look at how he “floated” to another win:



We also got to cheer Lauren on to her 3rd (I think) triathlon:

This brings me to a final point. I wrote 2 Examiner articles about the Chisago Lakes Triathlon. The first post contains a race recap as well as a slideshow of 20 images from the race. The second post is just a handful of more images.

I’ve been the “St. Paul Triathlon Examiner” since near the end of 2009, and I want to let you know (especially locals) that you can subscribe to my RSS feed or sign up via e-mail to be notified when I publish new articles.

Here’s what sort of things I write about. These are my last 10 articles:

• 2 articles (with photos) about the Chisago Lakes Triathlon: number one and number two.

• An article about a local engaged couple (who both do triathlons and duathlons) who are getting married DURING an upcoming marathon.

• Gear West just announced their first ever run / bike / run / bike / run duathlon named the Mosquito Man.

• The only local (as far as I know) off-road triathlon is coming up in a few weeks.

• Next weekend, the Cervelo eRide Tour will be in town, and you can test ride their newest, sweetest bikes.

• Photos and results from the first Great Prairie Swim, a 2.5K and 5K open water swim race.

• 3 articles about the much-hyped Lifetime Fitness Triathlon: results and photos from the race, 5 videos from the event, and pro triathlete and Olympian Sarah Haskins on our local morning news program.

If those sort of local triathlon-related stories interest you, please consider going to my Examiner page and subscribing (via e-mail or RSS). More subscribers will make me more “legitimate,” which will help my page become more accessible to search engines.

Thanks everyone! Happy weekend!! Oh, and check back Monday for a race report from the Waseca Triathlon. Matt and I are racing tomorrow!! (It will be Matt’s second triathlon ever - his first 2 triathlons 1 week apart!!) And yes, I WILL be rocking the sweet new swimsuit shown in my last post, so brace yourself!
