Ready to start the swim in cold Lake Wilderness. Madison was really excited about the swim cap. I think it made her feel very important and professional:-)
The "swim" was 75 yards through waist - shoulder deep water. Madison could have easily swam it but said she thought it would be faster to walk because the water was deeper. Not sure that is very logical, but the majority of kids did walk. I think putting their face in the cold, murky lake water may have been a bit intimidating. Something to work on for next time!
The bike portion was next with a 2 mile ride. Our Lopez Island ride was good preparation for that. Click HERE to see a good picture of her ride.
On to the 1/2 mile run. She started out strong but then a side ache slowed her down a bit.
Congratulations and the post-race talk with daddy
Thumbs up for a fun race. I think they definitely will be doing more in the future and Nora is excited to participate too.
