Training includes 200-300 miles each week on a bicycle, 25-50 miles of running and 10,000 meters of swimming. All this so he can punish himself in one of the harshest physical contests in the world. Why? "Everyone who takes the triathlon halfway seriously wants to do the Ironman," Johnson said. "It's intriguing, challenging ... an opportunity." Johnson qualified at regional triathlon races for both the Oct. 19 Ironman in Hawaii and the World Triathlon in Australia the week before. "Physically, I could do them both, but I can't take off that much time from my school work," he said. Guist, a 25-year-old native of Solon, Ohio, who lives in Symmes Township, is going to Australia for the World competition and then for this loan, making it easier for more people to qualify: Ask about it at the Ameritrust office in your neighborhood.

"I have a sponsor, which is the only way I can compete in both events," Guist said. "This is an expensive sport." Her sponsor is businessman Bob Leshner, owner of Leshner Financial, Inc. Guist, who has a degree in exercise physiology from Ohio State University and is a certified athletic trainer, ran track and swam in high school but did not compete in college. "I became interested in the triathlon through a friend while I was at Ohio State," she said. "I met my husband (Quinn Guist) there. He's also a triathlete, but he's recovering (from an auto accident) so he isn't doing too much competition right now." Chambers, who swam for the St. Xavier High School Aqua-Bombers and the Coca-Cola swim Sports digest of Pleasant Ridge, Pat Nymberg of Blue Ash and Janet Frock of Forest Park, was declared champion. BREWERY RUN: A new course will mark Sunday's third annual Cincinnati 14K Brewery Run, going through the downtown brewery district to Sawyer Point and back. Sponsored by the Clifton Track Club, it will start and finish at Hudepohl-Schoenling, Central Parkway and Liberty Street. Proceeds from the $9 entry fee will go to the Over-the-Rhine Senior Center. For information, call 396-7786. Steve Taylor of Mount Carmel is the defending men's champion, and Becky Reinhold of Lexington, Ky., is the women's titlist. Tim Butler of Loveland finished second among men in 1990. Patty Baker of Loveland and Janice Kruez of Mount Lookout were second and third among women. SENIOR SOFTBALL: Joseph Chevrolet won the recent Cincinnati Recreation Commission men's Over 50 slow-pitch softball tournament at Schmidt fields. It came out of the loser's bracket to defeat East Fork Service of Williamsburg by 11-1 and 10-4 scores. In a first-round game, East Fork beat Joseph, 9-3. Eastern Onion, led by former Cincinnati Reds shortstop Leo Cardenas, finished third and Crowley's fourth in the four-team tournament. One of Joseph's top players was shortstop Dave Neiheisel of Delhi Township, a vice president. FISHING OPEN: The Hamil- BY TERRY FLYNN The Cincinnati Enquirer Kirk Johnson is working on a master's degree in hospital administration at Xavier University; Anne Guist is an exercise physiologist; Greg Pohl is a dentist; and Mike Chambers is a certified public accountant looking for a job. What these folks have in common will take them to the Kona coast on the island of Hawaii next month for the grueling Ironman triathlon competition. All four have been training almost daily for several months to prepare for the Ironman, which calls for a 2.4-mile ocean swim, followed by a 112-mile bike race and a 26.2-mile marathon, all within 17 hours. Johnson, 26, a native of Lexington, Ky who lives in Hyde Park, is looking forward to his first Iron-man competition. Last year he competed in the World Triathlon Championships in Orlando, Fla. "I was the second American amateur finisher and seventh overall in my age group (25-29)," Johnson said. "But I really want to do the Ironman. This will probably be my only true chance to compete . . .because of school and my work." Johnson expects to complete his degree work at XU in May and then complete a one-year residency at a hospital. "I probably will never have the opportunity to compete in the Ironman that I do now," he said. He laughed about his schedule, which leaves almost no time for a social life. "I train six to seven hours each day, attend classes, and 'Aquarange' floats new golf concept BY BOB ELKINS The Cincinnati Enquirer Golfers dread hitting into a water hazard. But just south of Miami-town, there's a driving range where a splash in the pond is nothing to fret about. The range's distance markers float in two lakes. The owners of Miami Lakes Sports Unlimited on Furlong Drive call it an "aquarange." "It's neat," said David Simon, 24, of St. Louis, Mo., as he walked with three metal woods up the slooine sidewalk between the tees and the clubhouse. "It's different from hitting it across dead grass Of course, the down side is . . . you don't see it roll," said Simon, who was visiting his parents, Paul and Jean Simon of Green Township. Another golfer oaused while a file of nine Canada geese swam past the 100-yard flag. Tim Mittelhauser, 30, of Bridgetown, a partner in the com Dlex with Dan Peters, 53, of Har rison, said they opened the driving ranee in 1983. He said he thought the only other aquarange in Ohio was near 1 oledo. Two gravel companies once owned the side-by-side lakes, which are divided by a narrow strip of land. "Dan saw a couple of these ranges down in Florida some years ago, and when the owners ot the gravel pits here moved out, we moved in," Mittelhauser said. "It does orettv well. The balls used at the range are 5 lichter than standard golf balls, and are made of a special plastic that allows them to float. So hitting distance may be cut slightly, Mittelhauser said, not counting the lack of roll. "You can't make a living in the drivinc ranee business just on colt ers. You've cot to have some peo pie that just like beating golf balls," Mittelhauser said. Fishinc is prohibited. "There are too many insurance problems involved to start letting guys in to fish, Mittelhauser said. Instead of piloting a screened-in tractor to rake up balls in a field, the owners go out in a boat and retrieve them with a net. The comdex also boasts a min iature golf course, a pro shop, and indoor and outdoor batting cages. A line of tees under roof are heated for duffers who can't kick the habit duriniz the winter. "We row around and break up the ice so the lakes don't freeze Simplicity FALL CLEARANCE SALE The Cincinnati EnquirerErnest Coleman Hawaii are, from left, Kirk team locally, will be competing in his third Ironman. "I finished 142nd in 1988, and 272nd in 1989," the 30-year-old Hyde Park resident said. That's out of some 1,300 people who annually compete in the Ironman. "I was actually averaging about a minute faster in 1989 than the previous year, but my bicycle broke and I lost about 40 minutes repairing it," he said. Unlike the other three racers, Pohl did not qualify at a regional event but was selected through a lottery. The 30-year-old dentist has a practice in Colerain Township. The lottery was created because many people who qualify cannot afford the travel expenses of a week's stay in Hawaii. ton County Park District closes its 1991 open fishing tournaments with the championship Sunday at Winton Woods. It will start at 8 a.m., and weigh-in will be at 2 p.m. For information, call 521-PARK.

Gregg Stauffer of Blue Ash caught a 13.4-pound carp for largest fish of the day.
