The Minnesota Albatross Have you heard of the curse of the Albatross? It’s an old tale but it still lives today as a figure of speech. The albatross is a large sea bird that ranges widely in the Southern Ocean and the North Pacific. The Albatross is also a metaphor for dead weight or burden one must carry, not literally, but a stigma of some kind that one cannot easily discard. [ 1,743 more word ]

Will You Ride?
Over the years, with no control over the weather, the Ironman Crew spends months preparing for each of the annual events to make them a reality. Sadly this year the weather forecasts we are seeing do not come with dry/warm skies, like we had last weekend. Like you, we’ve been waiting all week for the weather folks to change their opinion for this Sunday, but they have not!

In order to ensure you receive your jersey before Ride Day, the first jersey order will close on Sunday, March 13, 2016 at Midnight CST and jerseys will ship April 14th.  The 150 or so riders who order by then will receive their jersey “in the mail” prior to Ride Day.

In addition, we are offering a second order period between Monday, March 14th and Ride Day, April 24th.  Expect delivery on the second order in your mail box around Memorial Day.

7 Weeks To Go I'm writing this article on March 7, which means there are only 7 training weeks left prior to the MN Ironman. There are no shortcuts to being prepared for the event, so the takeaway message for today is: "Get Out And Ride!" If you've ridden the Minnesota Ironman previously, you have an idea of what to expect from the course and the weather, and what will be required of you. [ 748 more words. ]
