Rylee’s 1st Race!

Tomorrow morning is Rylee’s first race.  Well, that’s not exactly true.  I ran a marathon when I was two weeks pregnant with her apparently, so I guess technically she already crossed one finish line, but I digress.

This afternoon she picked up her race packet at Rogue Running.  She’s still just a teensy bit nervous about swimming.  I believe her precise question to me before tucking her in was, “Mommy, if I sink to the bottom of the pool and they have to take me to the hospital will I still get a medal?”  Oh, sweetie!

Other than that whole fear of drowning thing she was pretty excited.  Here are the girls handing out race packets at Rogue Running.

And I was a little excited too.  Why? (Beyond excitement for my kid?)  Check out the back of the T-shirt…

Pretty cool, huh?  Well, I better get to bed.  Tomorrow is the big day and we need to get there early.

If you are in the Austin area and wanted to check out the Splash-n-Dash, here is the link to their website:  www.torostri.com.  Also, they will be having a kids triathlon in June and hope to have another transition clinic prior to the event.

Were your kids ever afraid of swimming?  How did they get over it?
