Participants Compete Lazyman Triathlon

Goodwell, Okla. — A perfect way to get summer fit, 27 people competed the 2nd Annual Lazyman Triathlon hosted by the Panhandle State Wellness Committee, Noble Center, and Aggie Intramurals.

Lazyman Triathlon Community member, Philip Collins, stated “The OPSU Lazyman Triathlon was a lot of fun and a great way to change up my normal exercise routine. The Noble Center is a wonderful place to workout. I enjoyed the facility’s clean equipment and friendly staff.”

Danny Smith, Panhandle State Resident Life and Housing Coordinator, said, “I think it’s really awesome that OPSU puts this on, because it gives everyone a chance with different fitness levels and for those who are just starting back working out it gives them motivation to complete this accomplishment. It’s also at a very convenient time because it starts getting your summer body ready.”

The challenge consisted of a 2.4-mile swim or 1200 meters on the rowing machine, a 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile run/walk completed over six weeks. It was open to participants from all fitness levels and the three events could be completed at any pace. All finishers received a t-shirt.
