Todd Buckingham  MSU Exercise Physiology PhD Team Every Man Jack Cinnamon roll connoisseur Go the distance

3 years in a row I've finished behind Louie at the @grtriathlon. This year, we were together for literally the entire race except for the last 2 miles of the run when I was finally able to open a little gap. You can see from the picture of us during the run that we were literally shoulder to shoulder. Ferocious competitors on the course, but mutual respect and admiration for each other as you can see from the picture of us hugging at the finish line. Thanks for your friendship and this "rivalry" over the years, Louie πŸ€—
I think I had a few secret weapons this year that really helped me out. First, my friend, fellow triathlete, and bike guru, @tri_eabbott (Eric Abbott), hooked me up with a deep clean on my bike and a fresh new @icefriction chain. I only averaged 248W and was still able to hold 25.5mph while feeling extremely comfortable. If you're looking for a knowledgeable bike brain in the GR area, Eric is your guy! Second, the @emjtriteam had a bunch of guys racing and we were able to have team dinner the night before at @benehammer's house. Catching up with friends, relaxing, and great food got me ready to roll.
As always, thanks to my family, friends, coach, and sponsors for all their support! It sure feels great to finally get the win at one of my hometown races.

I was in the Twin Cities last week for the @acsm1954 annual meeting. Of course, I had to try the local flavor πŸ˜‹ Cinnamon rolls, hi tops (bavarian cream donut topped with different flavor combinations, pictured middle row), and an American tea cake (pictured bottom right). The hi tops were a new experience for me and if you're in the Twin Cities, you've got to give them a try! My winner for the week was the cinnamon roll from The Buttered Tin in downtown St. Paul (pictured bottom row - middle). The look, the taste, the frosting...everything about this roll was fantastic. More in depth reviews of each to come 😊

Today I got to compete in the 36th annual run-bike-run(ning) of the Apple Duathlon. For such a small race in the middle of Minnesota, it is FAST! National and world champions converge on Sartell, MN and light up the course πŸ”₯πŸ”₯Shout-out to @emmagetty for snapping a pic of me doing my best ballerina impression! And @joeadriaens caught me at the finish saying, "It's hot!" πŸ˜‚. The awards are pretty awesome too: a granite apple! Weird, but it doesn't taste as good as a Gala πŸ˜‹

Want to play again? This time is extra special! Two four-leaf clovers and one FIVE-leaf clover! Swipe for a closer view. It's amazing the things we can find in our own backyard if we just take a minute to look around. As the great Ferris Bueller once said, "Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." β˜˜οΈβ˜˜οΈπŸ€β˜˜οΈπŸ€β˜˜οΈβ˜˜οΈβ˜˜οΈ

That feeling when you FINALLY graduate and get to wear a funny hat, but all you want to do is wear your Boco Gear lid.

I did a thing today- I got to wear a funny hat! And I was hooded by two individuals that I deeply respect: my advisor, Dr. Karin Pfeiffer, and the Chair of the Kinesiology Department Dr. Al Smith. I'm so glad my parents were able to be there because they have been with me every step of the way. My friend Catherine came all the way from England to watch me graduate (okay, she didn't come for me, but we got a picture together anyway πŸ˜„) And thank you to Karin for the nice words said about me. Make sure you listen all the way until the end. She was too kind in mentioning my love of boy band karaoke πŸ˜…

Well, it's official: I successfully defended my dissertation this morning and I am now a doctor! There's only one problem...I'm not really sure how doctors are supposed to stand!
Just like with triathlon that might seem like an individual sport, my pursuit of a PhD was anything but a solo effort. Countless individuals aided me in getting my degree and I couldn't have done it without you all, so thank you thank you thank you!
And speaking of triathlon...yes, I did wear my triathlon uniform underneath my suit πŸ˜… It's the piece of clothing in which I feel the most comfortable and confident! πŸŠπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸš΄πŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸƒπŸ»β€β™‚οΈπŸ’¨πŸ”₯😎
