Frankie did the Deuces Wild Triathlon in Showlow. After taking a year off from races (not training), he did a GREAT job. It was really hot and made for a tough race. He continues to impress us with his determination and hard work.

The race was 3/4 mile run, 3 mile bike, and 1/4 mile run
Boston is a STUD! This kid had to compete with the 7&8 year old kids(he is 6). He crossed the finish line 5th overall but didn't get a trophy because the kids that finished before him were the same age group. He has great stamina, he did so well because his last run time was still fast, he wasn't as tired. Way to go!
Alexa surprised us all. She is really competitive. She was the fastest girl OVERALL. That means she came in ahead of 12 year olds too. She got first place in her age group. She did awesome. We are very proud of her.
Sera had a very fast first run. Then she got on the bike and saw the HUGE hill she had to ride on. She had a little panic attack and couldn't breath.(we need to get her out on her bike more often) The amazing thing about Sera is that she didn't give up. A very nice stranger stayed with her and made sure she was ok and when we met up with her she was crying but still going. She finished the race and was very disappointed but learned a great lesson. DON'T give up. The other two girls in her age group had quit so Sera got first place. We are so proud of her for sticking to it. A little bike practice and she will be GREAT!

Beck entertained himself in this little tree for at lease 30 minutes. Whatever keeps him happy at these events, right?
My family amazes me everyday. What a great example they ALL are to me. I guess I better set a goal and take a turn, dang it!
