I qualified for the IronKids National Championship!
I competed in the 10 year old male division. Results are here.
I think this was the hardest iron kids of all because I had 66 kids in my division and only the top 5 qualify for the national championship race. This was a hard course because there was a lot of uphill parts on the bike and run and I wasn't used to that.
My total time was 28:51.3. I was only 28 seconds behind 2nd place. I know I can train hard for the next three weeks and improve 10 seconds on each part of the race.
I actually had my best times ever on all three parts of the race but the transitions were really long. I had to run about 250 yards to get to my bike after I got out of the pool. I was pretty tired and really didn't run that fast so I know I can make up some time there.
I had the second fastest run time and the second fastest transition/bike time out of all 66 kids. My swim time was really bad, but it was good for me. Im going to work hard on my swimming the next three weeks.
My goal for the Championship is top 10.
Thank you for your support!
National Championship is October 4th in Tucson Arizona.
