Kids Triathlon

I think Anna Marie, William, and Andrew would tell you that the highlight of their summer was the kids triathlon.

The morning of the race was extremely unpleasant weather-wise, with severe thunderstorms barreling down on us just as the race was to begin. We took shelter in the nearby school gymnasium while the race was delayed for two hours. The kids were hungry and nervous by the time the race began, but all's well that ends well. They had a great time and competed well.

Joe and I were impressed to our very core. The kids were tough and determined, gracious, and good sports.

Having said that, we know where to improve for next year. Our kids are running and biking machines. Swimming, not so much.
