Auroa School Triathalon

As the cool summer breeze blew into my face I was sitting there just waiting to hear the sound of thundering feet racing along the wet muddy ground.

"Ok" my race. One lap of the field seems easy enough. 3,2,1, GO!!! I started off with a slow jog, 'I feel pretty confident' I say in my head then I realise everybody's in front of me. So I caught up and tried to pass a few people.

I ran into the transition. I grabbed my bike, put my helmet on and started biking. Since I just finished the run I was so tired and slow. It was'nt any help with all the hills. All together we had to bike 3.8 km. As I was getting back to school I had to stop by the hall because we have lots of gravel so there ends up being a accident.

After I park my bike I run to the pools dive in and swim 2 lengths of the school pool. By now I couldnt even move. When I got out of the pool I'm huffing and puffing. I get an iceblock and some tokens to put in my whanua.

I had a fun time at the triathalon and I cant wait till the next one.
