Our Rocketkid

At the last possible minute we decided that Stella had time to do the Rocketkidz Rookies Triathlon this year.  She and Daddy got up bright and early on a Saturday morning to make sure she could complete race day registration and be ready for the starting line.  She had her game face on as she headed for the pool...
Swimming is really her strength thanks to 3 years of swim team, so she came out of the pool barely breathing hard and headed for her bike...
She said the bike leg was her favorite part of the race...just like Daddy...

This was Mommy's favorite part of the race.  For pretty much her entire life I have been worried that Stella would never learn to love running.  While love may be a strong word for how she felt about it, she tolerated it and held her own in the pack...
My cross country dreams are ALIVE!!!!
At the finish line she posed with some friends who are also proud Rocketkidz!
Great job, girls!  You have accomplished at age 7 something that I did not even attempt until I was well into my twenties.  I salute you!
