Can you feel it coming in the air, quoting Phil Collins. I can for sure, and not only can I feel it, I can see it. Whether you’re out running, jogging, walking, riding, or headed to a soccer game, there are people running all over this town as we get ready to approach the end of the year, and the end of race season 2014. Training groups from CREW, the Striders, various Moms Groups, Black Girls Run, and all the others are out preparing for any number of distance events coming up. Whether you’re training for Rock ‘n’ Roll, Tunnel to Towers, The Enmark Savannah River Bridge Run, or another race - it’s about to get really busy on the streets of Savannah, and all the treadmills in the area. This weekend should be no exception as miles start to ramp up as we hope the temperature starts to go down (just a bit, please!). When you’re out and about putting miles in with your training groups this Saturday morning, try to make it to Lake Mayer and the aquatic center as the kids take center stage for the Optim Orthopedics Safe Kids Savannah Youth Triathlon. If you get a chance cruise your legs over to the aquatic center and Lake Mayer to see these amazing athletes in action. For many of these kids, this could be their first experience in the triathlon world. For many, their first competitive swim, bike, or run. Remember how you felt the first time you competed in one of those? You couldn’t believe someone was cheering for you, but you were happy they were, because you were as nervous as you could get. Imagine what these 7 to 15 year old kids will be feeling on race morning, and they could use just as much encouragement. Once again and for many weekends to come it’s going to be busy fitness weekends for all of us, but this weekend belongs to the kids. The Optim Orthopedics Safe Kids Savannah Youth Triathlon – see you then.
