Brewhouse Triathlon Race Report

Race Date: Sunday, August 7, 2022 – 8:30am Another Brewhouse. I feel like I get pretty nervous or anxious before Brewhouse most years, almost like a dread.

Brewhouse Triathlon Race Report

Race Date: Sunday, August 4, 2019 – 8:30am I strolled up to the race venue at beautiful Island Lake outside of Duluth with a bit more than an hour before race time. It was nervewracking to feel late! I felt confident in my abilities to win this race for the 8th time and just wanted […]

Race Day: Sunday, September 13, 2015 – 7am This is the big one.

Chisago Lakes Triathlon Race Report

Race Day: Sunday, July 26, 2015 – 8am The Chisago Lakes Triathlon had a name change this year and now it is called the Toughman Minnesota Triathlon. Now, this name is stupid and I won’t ever wear a shirt that says “Toughman” on the chest. Just dumb. Ironman at least has the history behind the […]

Chisago Lakes Triathlon Race Report

Race Day: July 27, 2014 – 7:30am The Chisago Lakes Triathlon has historically been my highest priority race of the year. The previous three years I have strived to get to 4:30 for the half ironman distance. I don’t know why I had that time in my mind for so long, but I never really […]
