Ava made her duathlon debut at the Kids Tri 2 Spring Duathlon last weekend, and Noah was thrilled to have to opportunity to take part in a multi-sport event once again. They were joined by five members of the DuathLONG training club ranging in age from 3 to 7 who were all giving duathlon a try for the first time.
Our five younger team members (including Ava) raced in the 3-6 age group, completing a 1/2 mile run, a 1.5 mile bike and a run to the finish line. The two older kids (including Noah) ran 1/2 mile, rode 3 miles and ran another 1/2 mile with the 7-10 year olds. All the kids received medals and great goody bags, and one of our team moms made everybody matching club T-shirts.
The kids were all amazing, and everyone seemed to have a great time. It was fun to run along with Ava during her race and to see all the little kids cheering on the older ones during their event. Afterwards, we all enjoyed a great dinner and our post-race celebration and the kids slept really well that night!
