Alaska Ironkids Triathlon 2012 Goes to Cebu

Hubby and I believes that in order to instill discipline in a child, we should introduce them to sports. When both of us were hooked into running, we opted the kids to join us. And Alaska Ironkids was the race that made my kids love the sports of running. It was 2010 when Rebeccah joined her very first 1K run.

Alaska IronKids – Playtime

Proverbs 22:6 (NIV)

Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.

When we dedicated our children to the Lord, we have embraced this verse from the Bible with our heart. We promised and prayed that the Lord guide us and help me and Erick as we nurture the life that God has entrusted us. Being a parent is a gift from heaven that we must be proud of, not everybody has given the opportunity to be one. We have been blessed to have wonderful twins, Rebeccah and Rachelle. It’s every parents obligation to give their children adequate standard of living, nutrition, and play. They must never be neglected or abused.

That is why last Sunday, we gave our children the right to play by registering Rebeccah at the Alaska Ironkids run. Rachelle was not feeling well so we opted not to register her. Prior to the race day, Rebeccah had been all excited about it, asking me what shall she wear, should she be training and will she be having her own carbo-loading? I think it had registered in her mind things that Erick and I usually prepare before a race day. She also went to sleep earlier that she used to.

Race Day:

Rebeccah woke up early, she ate cereal and had a nice warm bath. At 6:30AM we left the house for Manila Polo Club, we wanted to see the children under the other age categories. The race was a success, there were a lot of participants.

The 6 to 8 years old category was called the main event, the race of the millennium, it was exciting to see the little boy and girls attentively listening as their race briefing was held and how they inch their way to the starting line. My pretty baby was under this category, the parents were asked to leave the cordoned area, and most of us parents were proud of our kids that none of them cried and asked for their mommy or daddy.

Rebeccah finished her first official 1K Alaska IronKids run at 5minutes 43seconds, making her 7th overall in the female category. Not bad for her first race, thanks to her daddy/coach. After the race we treated our children to their favorite breakfast meal at Mcdo, what a way to start a day.
