Franklin resident Lee Pepper says it took a mid-life crisis to get him interested in competing in triathlons.Not so for his 12-year-old son, Miles, who was the youngest competitor Saturday morning in the McMinnville City Triathlon."This is my first one," said Miles. "I like biking the best, but I've been training in everything."Lee has competed in over 30 triathlons. This is his second time to participate in McMinnville's race."When I turned 40, getting into triathlons was my mid-life crisis," said Lee.
