Yesterday, for the 4th(?) time, I was the announcer and music man at the Springfield Tri Fest. The event features two triathlons that begin at Lake Springfield.
This year's weather was fantastic! The first triathlon's swimming group entered the water at 7:30am. The second triathlon (a longer one) had their swimmers in the water by 8:00am.
The swim was followed by a bike course and finished with a run.
One of the great thing about triathlon is, the various types of people who participate. There was a strong showing of people over 50 and a few in their 70's! It's so inspiring to see them out there competing!
