Triathletes Big and Little




Bart finished his 3rd sprint triathalon over Memorial
Day Weekend. He doesn't have the time to train as
much anymore, and the swim and bike were much longer
and harder in this race, but he pulled out a 1st place
win for his division - would we expect anything less
of this ultra competetor?! Go Dad!

Caden got in on the fun and entered the IronKids race.
Can you pick him out in the picture above? He's the
shrimpy, skinny one in the middle!
We didn't help him prepare enough for the swim, but we
were so proud, he never gave up...and better yet, he made
up so much time on the bike and run that he finished 4th
overall! His father's competetive gene definitely found it's
way to him. He had a lot of fun and wrote about it in his
school journal saying "I loved it!" A funny sidenote - He
insisted on wearing shorts to school the next day and I kept
telling him I thought it was too cold, but he was persistent.
I soon understood why wearing shorts was so important, when
I noticed him during breakfast looking down at his calves
(which still had his race numbers written on them) to make sure
the evidence of his race and "coolness" was going to be visible
for his classmates at school! What a kid!

That is awesome! I started training for one last year... I was too wimpy to keep running when it was 100 degrees outside though. :)

That's amazing! Great job to both your competitors. I bet there aren't a whole lot of bishops who can say they are winning triathalons! (:
