Sierra Kids' Triathlon

Grace has such an awesome role model in Jason, who amazes us with his athletic goals.  She decided to try her first kids' triathlon this year.
The hardest leg was the swimming portion.  It's still early in the season and she hasn't really swam in the past few months.  She was very tired after finishing 4 lengths of the pool. 

Next up was biking.  She was most nervous about the transition because parents aren't allowed to help at all.  She did a great job!

Jason met her out on the 2 mile course to cheer her on while Jeremy and I waited near the transition area.
The last leg was running and she had to run 2 laps around the track.  She was exhausted and it showed.
 We were so incredibly proud of her for not giving up.  I was so impressed by her drive- she kept at it!  Such a proud finish!
If you ask her today whether she enjoyed the experience enough to do another triathlon, she'll likely say, "Maybe not..."  But, like her daddy, give her some time and that inner determination and drive to set a goal and strive for it will surely take over!  Let's wait and see...
