My little Triathlete

My 5 year old Mckayla did her second triathlon Saturday at the WVC Recreation Center.

She had a blast, did very well, and had a great time! I'm so proud of her!!!

I had to highlight a couple things.
1. She's such a purist.....hmm, wonder who she gets that from :) Anyway, all the other kids set their bikes down on the ground, not our Mckayla.
She insisted her bike be racked in transition.

2. We realized a minute before the swim that we didn't bring any kind of floatation. I panicked a little, mentioned running out to get her arm floaties, but she said she wouldn't be able to reach her arms through the water, so no floating for her :)

3. She insisted we stay behind her, she wanted to race on her own.

4. You'll also notice her little bike crash at the first turn.
What a stud, she didn't even cry, just got up and kept going.

5. Love this kid. You'll also notice her dodge the high-5's at the finish line. She had her eye on the prize and wasn't going to let anyone get in her way :)
Oh, and.....
Good job to my husband on the video!

Some additional photo highlights from the day
