Lifeguards preparing to compete in the Iron Guard competition, including Brenna Stuhler], far left, who works at Assateague State Park, and Tyler Tasker, second from left, who works at Harrington State Park, give a thumbs-up before running to the water. The Iron Guard consists of a 300-yard swim followed by a one-mile run and then another 100-yard swim. This was one of the events in the 23rd annual Lifeguard Competition at Greenbrier State Park in Boonsboro, Md. on Tuesday, Aug. 7, 2012. More than 60 lifeguards who work at state parks across Maryland competed throughout the day. The winners receive a trophy, but most importantly get bragging rights. (Barbara L.
