First Triathalon

Our compound hosted its first Iron Kids Triathalon in February.  The girls decided to enter and they were so happy they did!  They were so proud of themselves after completing it. 

The distances for swimming, biking, and running are determined by age and Marcella and Theresa fell into the same age category.  Each girl had to swim one lap, get out, bike two laps in the streets, and then run a lap around the track.  All this is done in bathing suits and no socks, which if you've never done this, you should.  Then you will know just how uncomfortable running and biking in a wet suit, no socks is.....but they did it and we are so very proud of them. 

Marcella came in third in their group for girls.  All children got completion certificates, which was nice, because they all worked really hard at finishing and some, like our girls, had spent a few weeks training and getting ready for the event.
