Katie Tri'd! Woot Woot!

My daughter Katie competed in her first triathlon yesterday. She rocked it!! I am so proud of her. Katie was really worried about swimming in the lake. She is not a big fan of weeds or fish :) However, as you can see from the smile on her face in this picture, she conquered it!



Katie did very well on the bike and run as well. She ended up 6th out of 16 in her 11 - 12 age group!!



She stayed strong and positive the whole day! I think she might be hooked :)

I'm not sure what I was expecting, but there was everything from bikes with streamers and baskets to tri bikes. It was a great experience (except for the wait... Kate's group was last and they waited for all of the other age groups to finish...). I am humbled and inspired by my daughter.

WAY TO GO KATIE!!!
