An endurance Sunday: Olympic women’s marathon, Brewhouse Triathlon

Sunday was an endurance day in Northeastern Minnesota.

The Summer Olympics women’s marathon was run primarily in the rain in London. Training partners Shalane Flanagan and Kara Goucher of Portland, Ore., finished 10th and 11th, within a few seconds of each other.

The News Tribune has a game story here and a reaction from Goucher’s family here.

A Goucher photo gallery from the race is here.

And in Pike Lake, the 26th Brewhouse Triathlon was held in nearly ideal conditions (although it was a bit windy). Duluthians Brian Bich and Elaine Nelson were the long-course winners. A story is here.
