You may think that our girls are cute and cuddly and smiley. You’d be right.
You may think that our girls are stubborn and determined and just a little fierce. You’d be right.
You may think that our girls are clever and caring and all roung good eggs. Yeah, that too.
“Kids of Steel”, though? You probably hadn’t considered that, given that they are human rather than robotic.
Kids of Steel (I like to say this with a pose and matching voice) is a junior introduction to the sport of triathlon- a 60m swim, 1k cycle and 400m run. Girl1 will turn up on Friday with a swimming costume, towel, trainers and shorts and just go-go-go. She was surprised to learn that she owned cycling shorts- you know the black ones you wear under your dancing dress- and so is ahead in the fashion stakes already.
My mind is a little boggled. The Brother has been a triathlon geek for twenty years. It’s hard work.
It’s a fast growing sport, undoubtedly boosted by the Kids of Steel (Have you got the voice yet?). Girl1 is determined and hates to lose, so we’re encouraging her to set a Personal Best to compete against the next time.
The next time? How could we ever find out where there is a next time? If only there was some sort of central website run by the Brother…
