Triathletes from across the metro descended on Lake Cunningham for the Omaha Triathlon Sunday morning.

Men and women of different age groups received medals for their times and the top three finishers of each group received a trophy.

Deb Bahr ran the race with two friends, who encouraged her to become a triathlete. "This is like my second time. I'm just new to this sport, two years. I consider myself new, kind of an older triathlete at 62. If anybody thinks they want to do this and they've never done it before, if you want it you can get it."

The triathletes had a choice of competing on the Olympic course or the sprint course, which is half the distance. A triathlon consists of a swim, a bike ride and a distance run.
