I crushed it, trimmed over 30 minutes off of last year time, and smoked last year’s winner-even if […]

I finished another new adventure this afternoon, the MN Ironman bike ride, unfortunately I only able to 60 miles instead of the 100 miles I intended to do. It had a little something to do with the rain, 20 mph gusts of wind, and the 40 degree temperature-but there’s always next year. I have no […]
