Mini Triathlon

This week we had an awesome event happen. We had a mini triathlon. For those of you who don’t know what a triathlon is. A triathlon is an athletic contest which consists of three different sports. Swimming, biking and last but not least running. We had the exact same situation but it was a mini version.

We arrived at the field with room 15. We sat down on the grass awaiting further instructions. Brett the instructor explained what we had to do for the swimming part. Some of the kids brought swimming togs because we had a little tarpaulin covered in soapy water. For those who didn't bring togs we had to do star jumps until the people who brought togs had finished doing four slides down.

First up it was room 15’s girls we cheered them on. Next was the room 15’s boys. Watching them was really funny because Ashin one of the boys was taking it easy just riding his bike. Next was the room 20 girls I stood up casually and walked over to where we did starjumps there was only one girl who went on the waterslide.

Running over to the transition stage. I grab a bike and put on the helmut. It felt weird because I haven't ridden a bike in ages. In soon got used to it and I biked to the finish. The race still wasn’t over yet, we still had to put the bike away and run.

I ran to the finish filled with exhaustion. I flopped on the ground with the rest of the girls. The triathlon was a one off, which was kind of sad but it was cool while it lasted.Overall I reckon that I could have done better. Hopefully next year in college we’ll get to do these sort of activities.
