triathlon


Agritopia kids triathlon.

jack participated in his first triathlon.
it was so cute to watch him compete.
he was so nervous the night before that he could hardly sleep.
he was more worried about what place he would get than the actual race.
the kids swam, biked, and ran their little butts off throughout the neighborhood.


age group: 6 and 7 year olds
{to the lady asking out loud, yes, he may be little, but he is 6 (almost 7), since you were wondering}

swim (4 laps)



bike (1.5 miles)

run (1/2 mile)

jack listening to the results with 2 of his biggest fans... sisters, ava and eden.
they cheered him on the whole entire time.

he placed 3rd... and got a medal!
(however, there were only 3 boys in his age group. but nobody has to know that.)


favorite quotes of the day:

me: "hey jack, wasn't that so much fun?"

jack: "yeah (with a big smile on his face), it was fun beating people."
{he is totally not competitive. can you tell?}

jack: "mom, i know i got my medal for the running part. i definitely got first in running. can i run it again just for fun?"

jack you are a rockstar.
