Keep on Trying

Yesterday Joey (10) and Robert (8) did their first kids triathlon.

The race distances were:

50 meter swim

2 mile bike

.5 mile run

They both did a great job. Other than Josh who is in NH for the summer, the whole family was there plus The Donk and his family.

Joey came in 2nd in his age group and Robert came in 4th in his age group.

Joey on the ride home "Dad, now I know why you do these races".

Here are some shots from the day.
