SLJ, who had a great time at the race this past weekend decided not to do Miracle Kids.
"I think one kids triathlon a summer is enough. I'm going to do the same race next year" He wants to PR. Whatever that means, there was no timer at this race. I'll have to remember to ask him.
The race is on Hyphen Girl's 13th birthday. !Ay Carumba! We had planned for some time to go down to Iowa with a friend of hers and a friend of mine and make it a chicks weekend. Oh, and I have a half ironman race thrown in just to make it fun. Unitl this Miracle Kids race came up I was acutely focused on the race. We were leaving in the early am to get to the hotel in time for packet pick up, I wanted to drive the course, blah, blah. Now, the Pigman Half is just a race and Miracle Kids is huge. The kid who won the pledge contest last year has cerebal palsy. His biggest concern was to do as much of the race on his own as he could without falling down. I emailed my race to ask them to leave my packet at the hotel as I am staying at the host hotel.
Perspective is always nice.
This half is really just a long training day to further test nutrition and race strategy. How odd that a half ironman is only a comma in a sentence that is a little over a year long. I love this sport!
Lake swim today with The Tribe and club ride tonight.
