Anyone want to try an “Iron Man” competition? It’s only a 140.6-mile distance, which must be completed between 7:00 a.m. and midnight the same day, and involves a 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride and finally a marathon run of 26.2 miles.

Thirteen-year-old Trystan Liter recently demonstrated a random act of kindness placing him in the category of a Good Samaritan. Instead of asking for presents at his birthday party, Liter requested all of his guests bring canned goods.
Trystan explained, “My parents provided me with a great party at the old elementary school in Milton. I really didn’t need anything else. Therefore, I had my friends donate canned goods so we could give them to a local food bank.”
