I heard that some of the kids got a little distracted because there was a turtle on the race course somewhere along the way. You gotta love kids.
And we had a great deal of fun despite the wind gusts that blew even heavy clipboards off the volunteer table!
This is my friend's daughter who competed. She's 7. Last year when she got to the track (their last lap), she started doing cartwheels. This year she was a little bit more serious, but truly, that face says it all. This is AFTER she had swum 50 meters, ridden her bike over a mile, and was about halfway into her .33 mile run.
And yes, I got some biking in today too. Not much -- just 2.5 miles, but enough pain in my leg muscles to motivate me to get busy tomorrow for some serious distance!
Happy Mother's Day to all.
