Blaine (tune-up in my neighborhood)
Liberty half IM
Square Lake half IM

I need some filler sprints in July/August.  Anyone have recommendations for close to the metro?

Heart of the Lakes (like this one), Chisago (I've heard good things), Lifetime (too big for me, but I enjoy watching)

Waseca. They have a sprint and a 1/3 iron, which might be interesting for your HIM prep.  Depends on how it works with your schedule.  It's a good race, worth the drive.

  • 4/27 Falls Du or 4/28 MN Ironman Ride
  • 5/11 Oakdale Du
  • 5/25 Apple Du
  • 6/2 Buffalo Oly ***
  • 6/23 RochesterFest Oly ***
  • 7/28 Chisago HIM ***
  • 8/10 USAT Olympic Nationals (Milwaukee) ***
  • 8/31 St Croix Sprint or Oly
  • 9/21 Treadman Du

*** Paid and registered

I will do at least one early season du, not sure which one(s).  I've done the Falls Du a couple of times but never one up in the Cities area.   I've always wanted to do St Croix but have never made it, maybe this is the year.  Treadman Du is so close it's hard to pass up.

My first thought was:  I have a team for Ragnar G.R. that needs runners.

Then I thought - OMG, not right before IM!  Yes, I think that's stupid. Sorry

Here is the rough plan:

Apr 28 - Get in Gear 10k -warmup/fun race

May 18 -Blaine Sprint Tri

June 23 – Rochester Olympic

July 28 – Chisago HIM

Aug – Ragnar Great River

Sept – Dick Beardsley Half Marathon - time trial for TC marathon

Oct – Twin Cities Marathon? - still have not decided on this yet.

 Based these on the goal of 70.3 with prep races.  Was thinking of doing Racine but cost swayed it.  hope these prep me for Chisago, they seem to fit well with my training plan as training races.  Thoughts?/open to ideas of others that have done these.

That seems to be a great build up to Chisago as an 'A' race. The first two tris can fit comfortably into "rest weeks" within most Oly training schedules, though it looks like 5 weeks between races rather than the typical 4 week cycle. Is this your first year doing tris? With the emphasis on running races, I'd venture a guess that you're a fairly strong runner. Looks like a great race season ahead of you! Welcome to BT!

Last year I did my first tri, a sprint.  This year I'm looking at:

Minnetonka Sprint

and

LifeTime Olympic

Not sure what I'll do after July, depends on how I'm feeling and how strong my running is.  It'd be fun to do a half marathon in the fall.

Yeap, First year with the Tri.  Figured if I am going to do this, I need a big goal to push me so HIM it is. Done a Dual before and always cross trained on the bike.  

You're right, my strength has been in running.  I have been doing marathons with a handful of halfs for the last few years.  So running is by far my strongest event.  

I actually changed the plan up a bit, saw the cost of Blaine and decided against it.  The entry fee was a bit much at this point and I instead could get two races for that cost.  Instead I am doing:

May 11: Oakdale Duathlon

June 1: New Bri Tri.

Treating both as more of a "B-" race and training through it.  Changes the time between races a bit.  Have to see how that goes.

I'll bite. I'm doing shorter races this year after a year of lots of running.

- Cannon Falls Duathlon
- Cinco Du Mayo Duathlon
- Gear West Duathlon (as a relay)
- Apple Duathlon MAYBE (as a relay)
- Trinona Time Trial (3.5 miles straight up sounds like fun... right?)
- MPLS Tri Sprint MAYBE
- Waseca Sprint
- Lake Marion Sprint
- TC 10 Mile lottery

I'm only currently registered for the Trinona TT, so that's my only real certain race right now. See you all out there!

After a busy Ironman year in 2012, my wife and I are reducing our triathlon racing year for 2013 to just breath and spend more time as a family and just living. Training for an Ironman and participating in prep races along the way is physically and mentally exhausting. We need a break to just get our mojo back, if you can relate. Not wanting to stop racing cold turkey, we elected to take advantage of the Lifetime Fitness deal for Trinona, Lifetime Tri Minneapolis, and Maple Grove (all Olympic races for my wife and I). I am considering the Rochesterfest Sprint race and the Waseca Sprint race. Also considering a late season Marathon, perhaps Mankato.

We are planning a Rim-to-Rim-to-Rim run of the Grand Canyon in 2014. Just looking for a few other couples or others that want to fly down there and join us to experience this awesome place together. The only catch is it needs to  happen in May or late Oct.

Then I will start thinking about a 2015 Ironman (IMOO or IM AZ). Right now, I have no interest, but hope to have it back later.

All the best,

Bill
