Andrew's Triathlon

Our little peanut Andrew, decided at age 5 that he was going to attempt the kids triathlon.

In order to complete it, he had to swim fifty meters, bike one mile, and run one-half a mile. Never one to be intimidated by anything, Andrew never lost his gusto throughout the race.

Despite the need for a buoy in the form of a pool "noodle," Andrew did not get discouraged and made up the time on the run and the bike.

Check out these photos of our little man competing alongside the big guys.

Note the finish-line (running) photo... As he crossed the line, the announcer made a huge deal about his little stature and his success at completing the race. He was clearly the littlest guy by a mile.

Go, Andrew! We're proud of you!
