CDA Youth Tri


Some pictures from the Coeur d'Alene Youth Tri last weekend.  {Thanks to my awesome photog friend Michelle for some of the great action shots}


This is the second time they have done this race and they really love it. Their friends were racing too which makes it all so much more fun. Aaron is obviously showing us his game face in this picture!


The swim, bike and run distances vary between the various age groups and distances get progressively longer as the kids get older.  Having done it before the kids were all a lot more comfortable with how far they would have to race.  They knew the course and where the bike and run turn arounds would be so they were a lot more confident this time compared to the first time they did this race.

Max got to wear my Team Blaze kit...(this was part of my birthday gift to him as he has been coveting it since I got it.) And yes...I know....apparently I have the physique of a 10 year old boy since he fits into it quite comfortably.

Ciara was a little nervous before the swim start...but as soon as she hit the water she said her nerves disappeared. 


These kids could all give me some tips on running by the look of it. They make it look easy. Here is Ciara sprinting to the finish.


These pictures do not do the conditions justice.  The water was CHOPPY.  The kids all did an amazing job swimming in some pretty decent sized waves. This picture makes me smile...Max offering Jack some motivational and inspiring words no doubt.


Jack made a friend on the run...he does not appear to have an ounce of competitiveness in him and so was happy to jog along with his new friend to the finish line.


All in all it was such a fun morning.  The kids all got a medal, a t-shirt and had a complete blast.  They'll definitely be back at it next year.
