Walking in the cold morning air, Room 17 walked to the field for the first day of our triathlon. With my heart racing, I fully opened eyes ANNNNDDDD.............................. This was it:(

I was hoping for something more challenging, but that was good enough.

Suddenly, I spot two old men, one of them running towards us. Noticing that he was more energetic than I thought, he explained to us about the rules and facts of triathlons. Then we finally got to work.

Did you know that the longest triathlon is the Iron Man. It has a 3.86 km swim, 180.25 km bike ride, and a 42.2 km run.

In Triathlon, Tri means three, and athlon means contest or event

The Iron Man is a test of skill, mental achievement and spirit.

Running to the water slide, I couldn’t wait to start. Getting sprayed by the water, I was getting ready to run before the other. NEK MINNIT. Ready, set GO! I. WENT. last:(   That didn’t put me down though. After five laps of that, I moved onto biking.

Quickly putting my helmet on, I ran out with my bike and raced with my friends. Fortunately, I didn’t come last, but close to that area anyway. After 2 laps with the bike, I ran as fast as I could and then finished.
