|Maxwell was the first out of the water, by a long way!|
This is the first time Hannah & Maxwell have been able to participate in a triathlon and they rocked it! They had a lot of fun. Maxwell had to swim 25 meters, bike 1.5 miles and run .5 miles. Hannah had to swim 200 meters, bike 6K and run 1 mile. We could tell Maxwell’s nervous anticipation by how many times he asked us if he could swim warm up laps in the water… 2 hours before he even started. This is not the first time or last time I’ll say this in his life, but Maxwell has a lot of persistent energy! It’s great, but it’s also taxing on parents. However, I was amazed at Hannah’s seemingly serene demeanor before the race. I kept asking, how do you feel about swimming out to that bouy, Hannah? One word: great! I watched her do a combination of freestyle and backstroke. Maxwell busted out freestyle the whole time. They’re already looking forward to the next triathlon!
