VALPARAISO — Ben Baltz wasn’t excited about competing in yet another triathlon last weekend.
It was his third in the last few months. While he likes bicycling, running isn’t his favorite activity, especially if he can’t win doing it.
The 11-year-old had completed the 150-yard swim and three-mile bike ride in Sunday’s Sea Turtle Tri on Pensacola Beach, but about a half-mile into the run, he knew something was wrong.
