The story of team e...

team 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
is history.  Over the next several years, team eclectomania
 won 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 various age
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 world by then-powerful
search engine/infosite Lycos.  But like that of Lycos,
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

But in 2008, we're back!  The website has been
reconstructed from archives at the Wayback Machine,
and team members are crawling out of the woodwork to
 tell their stories of miles walked, biked, swum, or paddled, new frontiers demarked, and new personal worsts established.  So read on...as we like to say: 

You have been warned....

Sept. 14:  Minneapolis Bike Tour
Laurie, Kim

2008 Results

Aug. 17:  YWCA Triathlon

Kim, Laurie (solo)

Kim, 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.
