Nervously walking along the itchy and wavy grass on our way to the WEET-BIX tryathlon with my Mum and my cousins, “how long do you think it would take?” I asked my cousin Jedida, also named my teammate or The Flying Fleas, that was our team name, “I don’t know” she said in a quiet voice. After chilling on the Woven mat, our cousins had asked me “Toby wanna come with us to get the prizes on the vouchers”, once I had finally lifted my weight and started to walk with my cousins to the first spot, to win something and what you would win is a hackey sack in one of the tents.
After travelling to other places just by showing your vouchers we had again sat on the mat where my mum sat and said “alright Toby time to get ready” she had already started to pack my gear for the transition into the run after my swim, after Jedida’s bike ride to the marist toilets and back to the pt england reserve where the WEET-BIX TRYATHLON was held right now and also where we are right now! She would have to put the bike down and tag my hand, then we would run together.
I really enjoyed the brekkie before everything started and also I liked hanging out with the cuzzies and playing with yo yo’s also playing piggy in the middle, I was mostly in the middle twisting turning trying to leap off the surface to at least grip the squishy inflatable ball, but sometimes I actually caught the ball well a few times I had caught the ball.
My favourite part of the tryathlon was the run because I also had more energy than her so I started to support her and protect her from the disaster that was happening around her, people were pushing, shoving and were especially bumping Jedida so I started to encourage her to move out of the crowd and she did, we started to slow down a little bit because she was very tired after the Bike ride.
We were almost there, as I ran I could see the beautiful sunshine, the sandy beach, the wavy grass, the handsome trees and finally the blue lit sky. I started to lose my control then, but I came back to focus “almost there Jedida, look” she turned her head and looked to where I was pointing then nodded in agreement, “almost there" I kept saying in my head, finally we had both crossed the finish line and got ourselves a Medal and more!
