Chloe's First Tri

Get ready for a lot of pictures because I thought this was cute.
About a week ago I realized that the triathlon I was signed up for also had a kid's race so I asked Chloe if she wanted to do it. She was very excited. Then I realized it was $40 and tried to talk her out of it. She wasn't going for it. When we were waiting for her race to start Stella realized what was going on and really wanted to do it too. I wanted her to do it too but not for $40. She took a $10-at-the-toy-store bribe.
All marked up:

25 yard swim:


Transition 1:

.75 mile bike:


Transition 2:
.5 mile run:




The End.


Mine was the next day:

Fred refueling:

Next up: Bear Lake Brawl, September 6th. Who'll join me? Or at least come camping with us?

Cute! Thanks for the tri advice! I'm glad that there'll be someone else there racing to talk me through the jitters!

That is just about the cutest thing I have ever seen! What a great idea to have a little mini version of a TRI. I bet Chloe had the best time ever and what a little trooper she is. You guys have such a fun family! We miss you in the "old hood"

What a fun summer activity for Chloe. I can see she shares your passion for Tris and soon you'll be doing them together!

what's the age limit on the kids tri? I think I MIGHT be able to manage to swim 25 yards...

That is so cool! Dan told us that Chloe did a tri, and I kinda thought he was kidding. I hear she annihilated the competition...

How did yours go?
