Wow!  What a day!  

Noah and Isaac both competed in triathlons today.  They've both competed in triathlons before, but those were at a familiar YMCA.  Today we were at the Huntersville Aquatic Center, which is a much more expansive (and intimidating!) venue.  Once the boys found their lanes and figured out how to put on a swim cap, their nerves settled and they were ready to go!

Can you spy Isaac sitting on the other end of the pool?

Isaac swam one lap, then jumped on his bike for about a half mile, then ran 100 yards to the finish line.  It was awesome to see him compete, but we didn't get any actual photos of those moments.

Isaac at the finish line!

Then, it was Noah's turn.  

Can you spy Noah sitting at the far edge of the pool?  

Noah swam two laps, then biked about a mile and ran about 1/3 mile.

Our triathletes!

They both loved it, and they can't wait to do it again next summer!
