TRI for KIDS Photo Spectator Report

Kids' TRI 003 A gorgeous start to a fantastic day, for sure! 

Kids' TRI 103  We arrived early and had our pick of the bike racks.  Later, they were completely full.

Kids' TRI 112        Body Marking.  I seriously love the smell of those pens!

Kids' TRI 115 Ready to rock ‘n roll!

Kids' TRI 027 Big Boy’s swim start – yeah, he took a foot in the face and more than one elbow in the ribs!

Kids' TRI 041    Bounding outta the water!

Kids' TRI 123     This was the biggest field of competitors they’ve ever had and most of them were in the 10- and Under category.  That’s Little Boy just left of center in the red goggles.

Kids' TRI 052       Big Boy heading out on the bike – he’s checking his gearing.

Kids' TRI 126 There goes Little Boy on the bike –I have no idea what that expression was for!

Kids' TRI 077Big Boy loves to run.  He had a rough swim and he was a little disappointed in his bike leg, too, but he kicked booty on the run!

Kids' TRI 135 Little Boy sprinted through the Finish Line and made the whole thing look EASY!

Kids' TRI 099 “Mom, this was the hardest thing we’ve ever done!  When can we do another one???”

Oh I love it! Congratulations to Big Little & Little Little Guy! I hope my little guy is interested in this stuff when he's older.

Hi! I just found your blog this morning and became a follower. I have to tell you that this post brought tears to my eyes! My husband did his very first Tri last year and I'm just now starting on a weightloss/reclaiming my health journey and we intend to do a Tri together next year.
We have two Littles of our own ~ both boys ~ (almost) five & seven (and a half). They both *just* got their training wheels off of their bikes. One is on swim team and the other is almost there. They *can't wait* to do kid's Tri's next year with us!!
I'm so excited that my family has found such an amazing sport that we can all enjoy together.
Congrats to your Littles and thanks for such an inspiring blog!
BTW, if you'd like to read about my journey you can find me at http://healthyfor100.blogspot.com
