Clear Lake Triathlon

During the gorgeous, Saturday morning of July 7th, 2012 six members of the Mount Vernon Boys & Girls Club participated in the 25th Annual Clear Lake Triathlon. The Mount Vernon Club fielded a Teen Team (Juan M., Nathan M. and Amy S.) who participated in the adult division and three Iron Kids (Brianna R., Shealeigh V. and Jon S.) who participated in the youth division. The adult division was comprised of a 1/3 mile swim, 14.8 mile bike course and a 4 mile run. Each of the teens completed one leg of the race. The youth division was comprised of a 100 yard swim, 1.5 mile bike course and a 1/2 mile run. The overall time for our teens was 2 hours, 9 minutes and 51.0 seconds. In the youth competition Jon S. finished in an astonishing 26 minutes and 44.0 seconds with Brianna hot on his heels with a time of 26 minutes and 47.5 seconds and Shea coming in shortly after with a time of 34 minutes and 14.7 seconds.

This was the first race that any of these kids have ever participated in. It was an amazing learning experience for everyone and great way to ingrain healthy habits into our kids. We love encouraging our kids to participate in physical challenges and being a part of these fun and healthy events.
