When competitors line up for tomorrow's New York City Triathlon, there will be a sea of compact, trim men and women preparing to swim 1,500 meters, bike 40 kilometers and run 10 kilometers. Most of the men will be probably be about 150 muscled pounds. Head and shoulders - and then some - above the rest of the competition will stand Rich Nelson and Richie Petitbon. So who invited the big guys? "We are the largest human beings in every race we go to," said Petitbon, of Thomas Point. Nelson, who is 6 feet 5 and 294 pounds, and Petitbon, 6-4 and 257, are so much bigger than most triathletes that there is a special classification for them - Clydesdale, the name for competitors 200 pounds and more.

Federalsburg -- This day, the fields and pastures of Trinity Acres lie quiet in the wind, all spring-grass green and dandelion vTC yellow, sweeping up from the road past Ed Banning's house and red and white barn to the old Seaford and Cambridge Railroad track.Ed Banning and Jim Parkinson hope things will be different today on Mr. Banning's 61-acre farm off Maryland Route 307 near here. It's the site for the Eastern Shore Plow Day and Windmiller's Trade Fair, a daylong horse and windmill event that started informally last spring and "grew into a big proposition," Mr. Parkinson says.
