Weet-Bix Tryathlon

Jack competed in the Weetbix Tryathlon event today. It was an early start for us Biscuits.. out of the house by 7:30 and over to Narrow Neck Beach for the pre-race setup.
His younger brothers watched patiently and behaved very well as the event stretched out through the morning and into early afternoon. Jack's age group was one of the last to set off but he found a school friend or two in the race start area which helped to kill time.
The sea conditions weren't perfect but everything else was 'just right'. He really enjoyed the cycle and was well knacked by the end of the run. His brothers were very jealous and can't wait to be old enough to join in the fun. I don't think I could manage three full sets of photo's as I had to cover a fair bit of ground to bring you this lot below.. Another great day in Auckland.
