saw your running blog about your injury. have you ever considered this race. http://hitstriathlonseries.com It's a triathlon that offers aquabike ironman and half ironman. There is one in Waconia Minnesota. I think that might be the closest to you but could be wrong. Just because you can't run doesn't mean you can't race! Good Luck!
How fun to meet you and Katie in person!! Wanted my husband to meet you too, maybe another time. You are both such lovely people. Thanks for not thinking I was a "stalker". I feel like I've met SP Royalty!!
