Yet another blog from some random dude training for Ironman and beyond

It runs (and bikes and swims) in the family

Emily and Melissa have asked me numerous times over the summer if they could do a triathlon, too.

So when the right race came along, I signed them up.

It was a short triathlon designed especially for kids and beginners. The kids swam 75 yards, biked about 3 miles and ran a mile. Nothing too difficult, but a great way to get introduced to the sport.

This wasn’t about winning or even being faster than the other. It was about participating and having fun.

They had a blast and, even if they walked a little bit here and there, finished with smiles on their faces and medals around their necks.

We’ll have a few more pictures after we download them.
