It was a very exhausting day. All that running, biking and swimming really wore me out; I can only imagine how the kids felt actually running, biking and swimming while I watched.
Early Saturday morning, kids lined the edge of the pool at The Ponds Farmhouse waiting for the 2009 Summerville YMCA Youth Triathlon to start. The horn sounded and the first kid jumped in and started swimming his laps. Every ten seconds after that for about an hour, contestants were jumping into a pool and swimming laps before climbing on a bike and finally running for the finish line.
