"Every Finisher is a Winner" - IronKids Motto (Affiliated with IronMan)
All week the Little Man has been talking about the Ironkid Triathlon. So, I wasn't surprised when we were cycling that he said, "Make room for the IronKid" and then he squeezed through Sister and Beloved. I just so happened to have my camera.
He seemed quite passionate about the idea all week. But, Beloved wanted to test him to see how serious he was about it and we will continue to test and look to see if interest wanes.
Cycling isn't a problem at all for him. He does 5 miles almost every day with more energy to spare. So, Beloved told him on Friday that running training starts on Monday at 6 since that is the only time Beloved runs.
Would he get up for running training at 6am?
He won't be 6 until the end of Summer so for his age division 6 to 8 years old this is the requirements: 50 yard swim, 2 mile bike ride, and a 500 yard run (just over a quarter mile) Also, when you compete in the IRONKIDS, if your Parent is Active Military, your "time" is also automatically put in your age section for the MILITARY IRONKID slot as well.
I guess we shall see... If his interest continues we will move on to swimming laps. OOPS!!! I mean Beloved will move him on to Swimming. I will just be a really great cheerleader!
