It's literally been so long since I've blogged that Blogger has changed the format for posting and I'm having a hard time figuring it out. Sorry for some of the sideways pictures. I can't figure out how to rotate them and why they are appearing sideways in the first place. Oh well. I'll add it to the list of things to do. : )
Maggie participated in her first triathlon. It was a kids only triathlon...50 meter swim, 2.5 mile bike, .5 mile run for those 10 and under. For the 11-14 year olds it was a bit longer. Anyway...she ROCKED IT!!!!! She was in the 7-8 year old age group (she's 7) and I think there were 66 of them total with about 30 of them being 7 year olds. Anyway, she came in 16th overall with the highlight being that she came in 4th overall out of the 7 year olds and 1st in the run portion for the 7 year olds. She was tied for 2nd in the entire 7-8 year old age group for the run portion and only lost 1st place by 4 seconds! She lost a lot of time in the transition putting on clothes and got a bit lost finding her "parking spot" in the transition area after the bike portion so she could have done a lot better with her time. Oh well, we live and learn and won't put on so many clothes next time. She had fun and we are so proud of her.
