Kids in Omaha are moving. Over 150 of them were swimming, biking and running today at Life Time for the 3rd Annual Kids Tri. The sold out event attracted 7-14 year-olds from all over the city and provided one of the best spectator events of the year.
With the sun barely above the horizon, the transition area in the Life Time parking lot was buzzing as kids set up their bikes and gear in preparation for the 8:00 am start. Anxious kids nodded absentmindedly as Mom and Dad went over the steps of how to get through transition. And as the steam rose above the outdoor pool the crowd erupted with cheers when the first athletes jumped in the water.
