The weet bix tryathalon
On Tuesday the 20 of March 2018 we woke up at 4am and then we ate Breakfast and then we went to Palmerston North. We could not find a park and then we spotted one so we parked there and walked to the to the Tryathlon. At 11am it was my race so we walked to the pools and they set us up into a group. Then it was time to swim and we ran to the pool and started to swim. The next stage was biking. I saw Bayden and I passed heaps of people.
When I ran I saw Mrs Gilbert at the end. I was puffed.
Weet-bix Tryathlon 2018
On a nice sunny morning, my sister and I got up early and started to get ready. We also had some delicious breakfast. When we finally got to Palmerston North, we placed our bikes in the transition area and got all of our gear ready like…. towel, goggles, t-shirts, shorts, drink bottle and put our number stickers on our t-shirts, bike and helmet. First the ten year old boys went – they had a light blue cap. A few minutes it was the ten year old girls. After that it was Tor and I in bright orange for nine year olds. After it was the boys and so on. When you were lining up to start you got quite excited. The pool was big and all you could see was splashing and swimming. The orange caps had to do two lengths of the pool. As soon as you were finished you had to run to your bike put on your shoes, dry off, put your helmet on your head and put on your t-shirt, then bike two laps of the bike ride. Quickly park your bike back into the transition area, take off your helmet and run as fast as you could to the finish line! Once everyone had finished It was prize giving and Pukeokahu won two prizes!!!!!!!
On March the 20th of 2018 it was the Weet-bix Tryathlon. At the briefing we had to do a warm up. It was a lot of jumping and odd things. The first people to go wore the blue caps and they were the ten year olds. The next people were my sister and her friend and then it was me. I did two laps for the swim and then I had to run to my bike and do two laps on it. There was a speaker that said two laps and finish. For the run I walked for a bit and then I saw Mrs Gilbert and I ran. At the end we got a medal.

Tor, Isla and Bayden did the 9 year old race and they had orange caps. Tiana had a grey cap. It was 12 years old.
