The Starting Line
Anybody else doing one of the Springfield tris this weekend? How about a century bike ride in McLean County? There’s a couple 5Ks to choose from as well.
Here’s the list:
Weekend of July 30-31:
— Springfield Tri Fest
The Iron Abe Olympic Triathlon and the Stoneman Sprint Triathlon are on Saturday in Springfield.
One of the goals I set for myself this summer was to learn how to change a flat on my bike.
Pretty basic stuff, but I’m not really much of a cyclist. My biking consists of doing the minimum amount of training I need each summer to get from zero to being able to finish the bike portion of a triathlon.
A new 5K run scheduled for late August is not your typical road race.
The runners will go over hurdles, climb hay bales, crawl through tunnels, negotiate a “sea of tires” and crawl through a mud pit.
The Car-X Crazy K also is not your average fundraiser. The goal is to raise $80,000, to be distributed among eight local charities.
