Last Saturday Walker participated in his 1st triathlon!! He went with his Varsity Troop.
The Jim Brinkerhoff Triathlon is the largest Varsity Scout event in the nation and it is held in Pima, Arizona. Pretty cool!
They boys had to swim 75 yards, bike 6 miles, and run 1.6 miles. The participants are tracked using a high tech chip device to record their time.
Before they left they had training twice a week for 6 weeks. They met super early on Saturday mornings, and on Wednesday nights.
Walker said it was a blast! We are waiting to hear back from his leaders on what place he came in. I’ll update when I find out. 🙂
I so wish we could have been there to cheer him on!! 🙂 I’m so proud of him going outside his comfort zone and doing this. He’s learned a lot about himself and that he can do hard things! 😀
