Yesterday, I headed out to cheer for my friends racing the Team Ortho Minneapolis Duathlon. I have a few photos below from the race, but I have more in two Examiner articles: click here for the first album, and click here for the second.
One of my favorite photos from the day was from when I bumped into local running star Carrie Tollefson. Here she is (with her legs) on the cover of Running Times and Runner’s World:
The Minneapolis Duathlon is labeled the “Largest Duathlon in the World.” Therefore, they had a STORE set up IN TRANSITION!!!
Elite men starting
Kerry Yndestad’s photo of the start with me in the right corner!

She was about an hour faster than her goal time!
The top 3 finishers: Riff (3rd), Payne (1st), and Millner (2nd)
Jenny Wilcox taking the win!
Julie taking second place as her first race back post-crash!
Oh, and this past weekend, Coach Jen gave me the green light to race the “Mosquito Man Duathlon” on Saturday! This should be fun!! It’s a run / bike / run / bike / run!! (Three 1.5 mile runs and two 8 mile bikes.) She told me “YES on the race...I liked how it fit ---- it will be good and short and painful. perfect!!!!” If that’s perfect, then Jen would enjoy making love to me....
