Wildflower Triathlon a family affair

The kids decided it would be fun to compete as a team at the 30th Annual Avia Wildflower Triathlon over the weekend. They competed in Sunday's Olympic Distance Relay event. The Relay race is a supplement to the weekend's main events--the Long Course and Olympic Distance individual races.

Kim, the former high school swimmer, flew out from Wisconsin to swim the 1.5-km leadoff leg of the race. Nik, the former collegiate cyclist, rode the 40-km bike leg. Whitney, the former collegiate soccer player, finished with the 10-km run.



Their efforts earned them third-place overall amongst Relay teams, and second-place in the Open-Mixed category.







Kim had raced previously in the 2008 Wildflower Triathlon, and Nik had participated in the 2011 Wildflower Relay with a couple of college friends.
