The first part, the swim, was in Mission Bay. Next came the bike ride followed by the run. Both girls finished each leg strong, managed the transitions well and sprinted across the finish line. They have both
asked to do another one (a good sign?) and have admitted learning to ride their bikes a bit better might be helpful. I think they both rode in their highest gear - oh lordy!
Here are some pictures of our "Iron Kids"and their experience along with the Iron Kids Course Map to see where the race took place and the distances they each complete.
Goggles & Swim Cap? Check! Tennis Shoes? Check! Helmet? Check!
Bag o' gear all set to go for EARLY the next morning.

Talking to the Race Director - last minute questions
Highlights of Sydney's "race".....
Finishing strong...There was no way she was going to let a girl 1/2 her size beat her!
Shelby (and Sammy's) "race"....
And they're off....
Shelby managed the swim and got creative doing so -
She swam every stroke except butterfly to keep moving!
Leaving transition for the ride
Always more fun to run with your best friend!
