1356035292.jpgEmma and Rob Moody weren't trying to change the world. But they are. With a triathlon. For the young athletes from Hudson, Wisc. their race started off with a bang in 2011. 

It began when Emma tagged along on her mom's volunteer work. "I was attending a meeting for Bridge for Youth With Disabilities," says Susan Moody, the children's mother. Bridge is a nonprofit that provides programs and opportunities for children and adults with disabilities. "I was sitting next to my mom, kind of bored," says Emma, now 11.  "They were talking about how to raise money for Bridge and I said, we could do a 5K'". The board members weren't sure they'd have enough volunteers to staff the race. "I could do my own run," Emma countered.

ironman cris_1.JPGWith a wintery April and a major winter snowstorm only six days before this year's Minnesota Ironman Ride, there wasn't much opportunity to train on the bike outdoors. That didn't stop a record number of cyclists from coming out to ride the new routes through the St. Croix River Valley. This year 4,696 cyclists turned out for this 47 annual tradition that kicks off the Spring riding season. The beautiful weather forecast for ride day that was provided by meteorologist Kristin Clark from 2WheelWeather, helped!

cudworthkaneland.jpgIs less testosterone really such a bad thing?  Every time one of those commercials for male testosterone comes on the radio it strikes me that guys of a certain age may be worrying about all the wrong things. Read between the lines and you can guess that male sexual performance is hidden somewhere in the messaging. But “energy” and “drive” are such nebulous terms they could apply to just about anything. Business. Creativity. Hell, taking out the garbage. The problem with obsessing over testosterone levels is that you don’t know what the net effect of your testosterone boost might be. Will it genuinely improve your energy or turn out to be a distracting yank on your system?
