In most athletic endeavors it doesn’t matter if you win or lose, it’s how you play the game. In the FV Triathlon, however, it does matter…a lot. The competitor whose training, effort and athletic ability drive him or her across the finish line first lives for 365 days at the top of the Fountain Valley hill.
But this year, if you’ve got pep, how you play the game could matter. In an effort to assuage bruised egos, reduce rampant “trash talk”, and eliminate fist fights (particularly between family members – you know who you are) this year every participant can nominate himself, herself or someone else to become the 3rd member of the elite “FV Pep Boys”. Pep 3 has left the group to pursue a solo career in Pep and they have graciously agreed to choose his replacement from this year’s FV Triathlon Participants. Some may consider this simply a consolation prize, but those people obviously have merited no other awards to debate the validity of, so what are they complaining about?
There are a few criteria required to enter:
- Must excel athletically
- Must display an unusual amount of pep
- Must demonstrate musical prowess
If you, or someone you know, would like to be considered for the Pep Boys, make your nomination now.
