Isabelle's 1st Triathlon!

It's true, my AWESOME 5 year old did her first triathlon Saturday!!  

Tyler (BooYah) and his wonderful wife started the weekend off with a fun party for all the little triathletes!  They "rested" up for the big event by running around, jumping on the trampoline, and eating smores while the parents strategized about transition positioning, fastest swim suits (with ruffles or without??), course layout, and nutrition.  We had a great time and even watched some of the Olympics opening ceremonies.  

Big smile after completing the swim

As a 5 year old, Iz had to swim 1 length of the pool, bike 1/2 mile, and run 1/4 mile.  And, she did it with a smile on her face the whole time.  Her transitions need a bit of work but really, that is all mom's fault.....we will have lace ties for next year:)  All the kids did great and loved the popsicles at the end.  

Racing towards the finish!

Josh, Jackson, Maggie, Isabelle, Charlotte

Best part:  Iz called it the best day of her life

Second best part:  Charlotte running after us into transition crying "I want to ride my bike, I want to ride my bike"

That is so stinkin awesome. I am so impressed, she really stepped up to the plate with that one, just like her mom. So, were her transitions slow b/c you were helping her? Ha!
