Bottoms Up

For the past quarter century, Fort Lewis College’s Tri-the-Rim triathlon has continually brought together the on- and off-campus community for a good old, rock ‘em sock ‘em spring triathlon. This year, snowy skies cleared just in time for the start gun on Sunday morning. With nearly 200 competitors throwing down a 500-yard swim, 11-mile bike ride, and 3-mile run, competitors got more than their healthy dose of morning exercise. Here’s a look:
  • Day in the Life
    Cruising under crystal blue skies.
  • Day in the Life
    A competitor sprints through the finish gate.
  • Day in the Life
    A classic case of runner’s high ... with plenty of energy to spare.
  • Day in the Life
    The dreaded “mid-race slump.”
  • Day in the Life
    Starting off the morning with a refreshing dip in the pool.
