LAKE MINNETONKA, Minn. -- Brad Close believes in playing hard.
So last year, as a way to promote fun and fitness, he concoted a triathalon, that he runs out of his backyard.
It's called the Tonkaman. The sprint course consists of a half mile swim, an 11-mile bike ride and a 5K run.
This year, the race includes corporate sponsors and a more talented field of racers.
Except for Perk, who somehow manages to add fishing, tree climbing and off road racing to the triathalon.
