New Twists on Triathlons

 

continued

Solomon, forty-one, ran her first marathon just before her wedding. Long intrigued by triathlons, she competed in her first at age twenty-seven, just after giving birth to the second of her three children. She first met McKeachie as a competitor in triathlons. Now Solomon is quitting her job as an elementary school teacher to concentrate full time on EST events.

The "Battle of Waterloo" will be a forty-two-mile adventure race through the Waterloo Recreation Area. It's divided into ten stages that alternate between swimming, biking, and running, and the partners hope to attract as many as 400 competitors at $120-$150 a head. One quirk: participants must devise a way to carry their running shoes while swimming across lakes. Mc Keachie says she'll just stuff them in her swimsuit and run in wet shoes.    (end of article)
