Last year, we joined in with a group of our friends and signed our kids up for the Houston Kids Triathlon.  We really had no idea what to expect, but it seemed like a fun idea.  The kids really liked it, so I decided to go ahead and sign them up again this year.  I ended up not getting to see them race last year because of a girls trip that had been planned forever, so nothing was going to… Read more »
