Justin's Race

We just got back from Justin competing in a triathlon in Rigby. We are so proud of him, he just kept going and going, and placed 8th out of 104 people, for his very first triathlon. The triathlon was a sprint triathlon, so it was a 1/2 mile swim, 12.7 mile bike ride, and a 3.2 mile run, he finished in 1 hour and 23 minutes. He has been really looking forward to this competition, but when we woke up this morning, it was cold and rainy. By the time he finished the competition, it was only 46 degrees outside, and the swim was freezing! I felt so bad for all the swimmers.

Here is a picture of him getting out of the water, next was the bike race, and then the run.

By the end of the race, he was pale and crampy, but so happy to be done! Good job honey!
