An abrupt start to our upcoming busy fall season today. Our family had to divide up in order to conquer in the kids' sports. First of all, I went with Oscar and Irene to a triathlon. This was Oscar's first tri, and Irene's 2nd. They've been looking forward to this for months- ever since their splash n' dash in March. Although there are many opportunities for kids to do triathlons around here, they are not cheap, so we agreed to just one this year. After much research, I convinced them that one at the pool they usually swim at was the best option. We did some "training" in August in addition to their regular swimming. They were ready for today!
It started with a 100 meter swim. Irene was first out of the water in her heat, and Oscar wasn't far behind as the second.
Irene took 2nd in her age group for girls! She finished with a time of 19:51 - just 9 seconds off of 1st place in spite of her bike! Oscar didn't place due to some stiff competition, but he did awesome with a time of 20:30. We're super proud of them, and they are already looking forward to next year and another chance to do a tri!
And Johan taking a shot at the goal. He's #8
