The day came. I hoped in the car, waiting for the race to begin. The car parked. It was so busy it took us around 10 minutes to park because the traffic was as busy as Auckland. There were people everywhere. I got my bike out of the boot and pedaled as fast as a cheetah can run. I was competing 8 year old kids. The race began. I had to swim 100 meters and the pool was 1.00meter - 1.5 meters. I was only 1.3 meters at the time. But I did it. I got out, then started running to my bike. I found my bike. I immediately got my towel, dried myself, and put on my clothes. I have to run and hold my bike at the same time. Now I can hope on. I am sweating. "I might not be able to do it", I was saying to myself. But I know it can, but biking 4 kilometers might take a while. "Turn left", I said. "Turn left onto Ruha Street". "Turn left to the holiday park". "Follow the path ahead". "Turn left onto The Manawatu River Bike Track". "Turn Left onto Fitzherbet Ave". "Turn Left onto Manaroa Street". "Follow the path". I have to hope off again. Run, Run  Run! I'm out of breath. I will try to catch it by putting my bike away, then I will tie my laces. Run, Run. I now have to run. I am 100% out of breath. I will just walk a little bit. Now run. Nearly there. Then I can get my medal. And a glass of water. And maybe another photo from the media. Yay! 2 photos from the media.

Self Reflection: I shared what I learned, and I need to improve on sharing what I would do differently next time.


  1. Great story Tane and great participation in the Triathalon. Keep up the great work son.

  2. Wow Tane! If you were 100% out of breath, you must have put in 100% effort! Great work! What did you learn about yourself by participating in the Weet-Bix Try? What advice would you give someone who would like to participate next year?

    1. I learned that it Dosen't matter if I win or not, it just matters that I participate. That would be the advice to give to someone who is participated for the first time.
