Torsten’s First Triathlon

What a great event!! Thanks to the county, the volunteers, and everyone who participated. Torsten had a fantastic first triathlon in the 18th annual Los Alamos kids triathlon. Torsten did the 1/2 Mile Bike and 1/4 Mile Run. He said he was “too hot” to swim, but also had gotten raw elbows earlier in the day, so didn’t want to swim. It was an overall extremely positive first time, and he said he definitely wants to do it next year.

Here is queuing up at the start (bike, run, swim was the order) — he ran into a friend at the start:



After the bike, on to the run:



The finish and medal:



And most importantly, the post-race celebration!!!



Torsten’s summary of the triathlon: “AWESOME!” 🙂

  1. holey-moley cuteness. I just asked Aven — “Would you like to do the triathlon next year?” and she answered her most emphatic “YESSSsss!” and nodded yes after each of the following: “Can you bike?” “Can you swim?” and “Can you run?” She is wearing Torsten’s medal around the house!
