Brian Fouts has a simple explanation why he has signed up for the Columbus Challenge Triathlon on Aug. 10.
“You have to be crazy to do stuff like this,” said Fouts, who is a mechanical engineering technician for Cummins in Seymour.
If Fouts is crazy to be doing triathlons at age 54, his dad, 80-year-old Charlie Fouts, must be insane. They will compete together in the Columbus race.
