Tonight Oscar aka O-Town ran in his 1st triathalon! He has been watching his dad train and compete in some for the past couple of years and it sparked his interest. He was really motivated to do one after he saw his dad compete in the Boise Ironman, and the YMCA 'Why Not Tri' was perfect for him. It was a 1/4 mile swim, 6 mile bike ride, and 1 mile run. He convinced a friend, Christian Sedrick, to compete too.
Here he is getting all his things ready in his first transition. This looks VERY familar, he couldn't possibly be related to his dad or anything. *wink*
Starting the swim, he's in the middle with the black wetsuit, with a green stripe down the side
Takin off on the bike, Go OSCAR!! Wooooo whoooooo! I was the only one cheering, Oscar was takin pictures and Parker and Mason were too chicken to say anything. I didn't care I was gonna cheer the loudest for my boy!!
It was sooooo HOT that day! I felt sorry for all the athletes! Mason found a good way to cool off though *smile*
Finish Line! He finished the race in 45 minutes 12 seconds! Wow! GREAT job Oscar!
Otown and Dad (Mason had to sneak in too *smile*)
The family (except Zachary who had to be at soccer practice, which I thought was CRAP! But that's a different blog)
