The Triing Lizard

Tuesday, August 28, 2007

My niece Veronica finished her first triathlon a couple weekends ago, the Greater Cleveland Youth Triathlon. She is 9 (age group of 7-10). The triathlon consisted of swimming 100 yards (in Lake Erie which is really choppy!), biking 3 miles, and running 1/2 mile. She did such a great job! She came in 15th out of 45 in her age group - top third! Very impressive. She was against some kids who had actual road bikes when she was on a really heavy regular kids bike (I think the thing weighs more than my bike)!!!

Check out that run time!!
