Wearer of the Ancient
Royal Mantle of the Maniacs
The story of team e...
eclectomania was founded in 1997 a few minutes
before the start of the
now-defunct Lawrence Memorial
Hospital Triathlon. Team members
Fran, Kim, and
Mary Felice blazed their way to second place in the
women's short course, team division . . . and the rest
history. Over the next several years, team eclectomania
trophies, medals, a hand-carved wooden fish, and
no small amount of
noteriety all over eastern Kansas and
western Missouri, with various
maniacs finishing first,
second, third, and sometimes last in their
group events. The team's website, which chronicled
the not just the thrill of victory, but the agony of
de feet, became
famous all over the multisport globe
and was rated number one in the
search engine/infosite Lycos. But like that of
the team's glory would fade away. One by one, maniacs
moved away, got fat, or generally lost interest, and the
team, not to
mention its website, all but disappeared...1
in 2008, we're back! The website has been
archives at the Wayback
and team members are crawling out of the woodwork to
their stories of miles walked, biked, swum, or paddled, new frontiers
demarked, and new personal worsts established. So read on...as we

Kim, Laurie (solo)
competing under her race alias "KIMI", had PWs in all three parts
of the event, but given that she is an overweight, out of shape, 49
something who had pizza, Coke, and ice cream the night before the
event, she's just glad she finished the damn thing. 100 yds. into
the swim, Laurie had a
near death experience , the cause of which is currently under
investigation. She spent most of the race in the EMT
tent sucking on
oxygen and albuterol. Yikes! Although a
less-than-auspicious day for the team as a whole, we still think
eclectomania rules! Get full results HERE.
