That’s right! Jordan and her brother competed in their first triathlon this morning. We’ve been very busy and didn’t actually train for the event, but that didn’t intimidate either kid! Jordan had to swim 25 yards, bike half a mile and run a quarter of a mile. Her brother swam 100 yards, bike 3 miles and run half a mile. What’s really exciting is how they both completed the event… Neither felt nervous or concerned about the experience. I’m so proud.
Jordan was in the youngest group and I put her in a life vest because she hasn’t mastered distance swimming just yet. But she did do an incredible job using her feet to kick and her arms to pull.
Jordan pulled through! She asked me to run the quarter miles with her. So we did it together, holding hands. It was very sweet. I let her run through the finish line all by herself where the announcer said her name and she got a medal. She’s a very proud little girl. She has a very proud brother. We’re very proud parents.
