Emily has been training for the last few weeks for her first big race - a duathlon! What's a duathlon? Well it's like a triathlon but without the swimming. Why is it not called a biathlon? Easy, that's skiing and shooting. See the biathlon for yourself on NBC starting next month. See Emily's duathlon photos below.
Here are Emily and Scott pausing from their warm-up for one of many photos taken by the mom. (How could I resist?)
About 40 kids, including about ten from our church, showed up for the big day. The event was free so a lot of the fair weather kids stayed home. It's been raining for a week straight here so it was no big deal to have a little raindrop on the head.
Find the following things in this photo:
2. The race winner
Here's a hint. Emily is the cutest and I had the winner picked out before they even hit the starting line. He smoked everyone! This may not have been his first event.
And they're off! Thanks to Alyssa for being Emily's pacing buddy.
(PS - 1 mile run, 1.5 mile bike ride!)
