At four feet four inches,  John Young is a Little Person.  A dwarf.

So sure: he's short.

But he's long on endurance, and big on Getting It Done.

He's run the Boston Marathon.
The New York Marathon.

And thirty triathlons--
including three Half-Ironman events.

So it's no surprise that he's running light and easy
here, at the final turn of the Triathlon at Lake Pearl,
(a scenic race put on by the Hockomock Area YMCA
in Wrentham, MA.)

This Sprint-distance Tri is just a tune-up for John!

He swam a quarter-mile in beautiful Lake Pearl...
bicycled 9 miles over scenic New England hills...
and ran 5K.

Now he's gliding to the finish line,
and a well-earned award as the 
First-Place Paratriathlete in this race.

Go-ooo, John!
