Halle the Triathlete!

Ever since my triathlon last summer, Halle has said that she wants to do one too.  She’s been talking about it all year, and as I was training this summer, sometimes she’d come on a little bike ride with me or a run around the block.  Our awesome town puts on “The Mighty Kids Triathlon” every summer and we knew this would be the perfect race for Halle.  There are transitions, and the kids get timing chips and everything.  So official! 

It all started with a 25 meter swim.  She did it in 55 seconds flat
Then on to T1. 4:15. We’ll work on transitions for next year :)

She biked a mile in 6:23.  Yes, I realize her bike is a little small.  I’m working on it :)

She had a speedy T2 and then a great 1/2 mile run—4:58.  She ran the entire way!

Final time: 17:09. On the way home from the race she said, “Mom, I can’t stop smiling! I can’t believe I did it!”  It was a proud moment for this Mamma.  Way to go Halle girl!

Go miss Halle!! I am so proud! She did a great job. What a trooper. Was she exhausted the rest of the day? I love that she is not even 8 yet and has already accomplished doing a triathalon! You go girl!
