Today Isabelle and Charlotte competed in the local kids triathlon! The girls have been training very, very seriously. For about 3 weeks now. Phew! They have been swimming laps at the pool every chance they get, participating in runners club a couple of times a week where they run 2-3 miles, and they ride their bikes all the time!
Setting up transition. The girls were a bit nervous (and so was I!!!) but they were ready for the 50 meter swim, 1 mile bike, and 1/2 mile run.

|The competition was fierce!|
The girls did great on their swim but we do need to do a little bit of stroke practice! Parents for this age group were able to help in transition. I have to say, my kids KILLED it in T1!! (we'll call that parental advantage)

As Charlotte left T2, she was right behind a boy. I "gently" told her to not let him beat her! (I refrained from yelling kick his ass) Look closely, the boy is barely in the picture above. Nice job Char!
I am one proud mama today.
