Triathlon

Jared and Mia wanted to sign up for their first triathlon on Saturday.




This was a hard thing for both of the kids. We haven't trained at all and the first time I tried to see if they could run 3/4 mile was a week ago. They both did their best and didn't give up when things got hard. We learned some things and they are both talking about doing it again next year.

I think this was an amazing experience for them and gave them a boost in their self confidence. It is a good thing to be able to complete something so difficult and feel good about the effort you put into it.

I was really proud them.

Melissa,
The biking was 3 miles and the swimming was 400 yards, so 2 laps.
