Isaiah's First Triathlon



This last weekend Isaiah participated in his first triathlon. It was a lot of fun to watch. The funniest part was the swimming. For his age group they can only run through the shallow part of the lake, but all the kids insisted on wearing their swim caps. The footage that I took is bad because I was trying to watch, cheer him on, and film all at the same time and it gets a little shaky at times. The cutest part was his racing number and age written on his legs. :)








You can see the pre-race jitters here.





















I also participated in a team triathlon. We took first place for the second year in a row! Emily Walker is on the left and she did the bike leg in place of my sister Lindsey this year. Robyn Jones swam and she took almost two minutes off her time from last year, which is good because I did the running leg and I think I added a minute to my time.

Oh my gosh...that was the CUTEST thing ever! I seriously was laughing out loud and yelling "go Isaiah" while he was running through the water. His head and body were cracking me up! And then as he was just taking his sweet ole time putting on his shirt. Ha!! What a great thing for him to do!! He was amazing and so strong!! Where did you find such an event? I seriously think this is awesome!! Oh yeah...I thought your video coverage was perfect! I loved hearing your fun supportive yell. You are a great mom!!

Julie: I added to this post later because I got interrupted and wasn't able to get back to it until tonight. If you scroll down you will see the reason why we were really at this event. It was an added plus that they had the event for the kids. I think it makes it worth it for those kids, and husbands, who get up super early to come out and support their moms, and wives.

Congrats on being 1st! Isaiah is such a cutie and definitely following in his mom's footsteps.

Isaiah's face is so serious in those action sequences! Looks like a fun and exhausting day for both of you. I have been wanting to try a triathalon, but dreading the swimming part. It is nice that there are races where it is divided up -- I am glad to know that is an option... as opposed to drowning.

This is very cool, I've never heard of a kids triathlon.

That's totally awesome! Look at you staying involved in all sorts of athletic things. I can barely get my rear in gear in the mornings. I'm so ready to not be pregnant...come one baby...come out. I hope we get to come live back in Oregon...so I can see you much much more! Love you
