Final Triathlon

From the beach, we headed straight into town for Berkley's final youth triathlon.  The series of three races culminated with the final race where there were more kids than the other two races, and just as much excitement.

Berk & Cameron prepping for their swim...

At the finish line after a strong run!
We knew Berkley's standings before the race, and barring anything crazy, we knew he would like get second place for the series in his age group.  We prepped him for that, told him to do his best, and to have a great time!  
We were super proud when he came in first in his age group for this particular race, and we knew that would secure him being second overall.  EXCEPT- in the third race of the series, more points are given for first place than in the previous two races.  So....Berk's points actually pushed him into first place for the whole series!  We couldn't believe it!  We found out before the awards ceremony, but didn't tell Berkley.  He was so shocked and excited when they called his name for first place!  We are so proud of our little triathlete!
Cameron took a strong second in the girls' 6 and under.  These two were proud of their hard work!
