Welcome Scott!! That's some very impressive weight loss so far. Congratulations!

Consider doing one of Lifetime Fitness's Indoor Triathlons this winter or next spring. It's a nice introduction to essentially a sprint distance race, but is run for total time (10 min pool swim, 30 min on spin bike, 20 min treadmill run) as opposed to a set distance. I'm not sure if they have one down in Rochester, but it may be worth the drive up to the Cities if you find one that fits your schedule. You don't have to be a Lifetime member to do it either!

Good Luck this year!

Ryan

Hi everyone!

Name - Lea
Years doing triathlon - 17 years
Favorite Tri Race -Chisago sprint
Home - North Minneapolis
- I coach a small triathlon club in the metro area. I have done every distance of race from sprint to Ironman. I like to go out there and have fun, and try to better my own time.
Other interesting Facts - I am a singer and have a degree in music, but now I just do that for fun. Some day I think it would be fun to sing the national anthem and then jump in the water to start the race

Hey Folks, I'm back. I've taken the last couple seasons off of triathlons, long story but essentially I tore something in my shoulder not long after IM AZ, couldn't swim (or do anything with that arm) so I decided to take the summer off of tri's and work on my run. Two years later and I still haven't been swimming or biking much and have gotten sucked in ultra trail running. Now I'm a bit burned out on running and have lost motivation to train, so after consulting with the boss (my wife) I've decided to look at getting back into triathlon. Maybe switching things up and giving myself a different goal might help.

Coincidentally, my dad is getting older and has been talking alot lately about finishing his goal of visiting all 50 states and all 7 continents. The only continent he hasn't been to is Australia, and it looks like IM Western Australia is currently open, so I'm going to investigate and see about taking him there this December for the race and finishing his goal.

Glad to be back!
