WINTER WONDERLAND:
THREE TIPS FOR TRAINING IN THE COLD MONTHS
1. WEAR LAYERS. In order to have fun outdoors, you need to wear the right layers. Having a synthetic base layer — the layer touching your skin — is important so that you do not get cold. Also, cott on kills! Having cott on next to your skin can be dangerous because it can freeze in extremely cold temperatures if you stop to take a break and cool down.
 


2. HAVE FUN! Make sure to find a winter sport you enjoy that makes you want to get outdoors more during those cold, dark winter days. Sports Alaskan kids love are cross-country skiing, fat tire biking, running, ice skating, Nordic skati ng and sledding.
 


3. BE ADAPTABLE TO THE WINTER CONDITIONS. If you live in a cold climate and get fresh snow, be sure to get outdoors and enjoy the fresh tracks in the snow skiing or sledding, but if it’s icy and minimal snow, ice skating is always a good time. Nordic skating is even more fun; think cross-country skiing on ice!
 


 


 


 


YES, I CAN — AND YOU CAN TOO
Triathlon is a sport for everyone! Last year, 10 athletes trained together to compete in their very first triathlon, thanks to The Happy Tooth Foundati on’s YES I CAN! Triathlon Camp and a grant from the USA Triathlon Foundation. Many of the athletes didn’t know how to swim or bike when they started the camp, but with lots of practice and hard work, they built new skills, self-esteem and a passion for triathlon. The campers participated in the Mid-Atlantic Regional Youth Triathlon Championship at the Tar Heel Youth Triathlon in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, and had a blast racing and crossing that finish line.


 


 


 


 


#WHYITRI: IT’S NOT ABOUT THE MEDALS
By Ava Baumgardner (age 13 of Florida)
 


This upcoming year, I will be parti cipating in my seventh First Coast Kids Triathlon. I started doing triathlons in hopes of becoming more active. My rst year I came in close to dead last; however, over the years my times have become faster and the transiti ons have become smoother. Triathlons have become easier for me over the years, but this year was the most challenging. This year, I was starting off my first year in a new age group. It was hard but I persevered and achieved my goal.


My favorite part of every triathlon is the very end when you see the nish line and push yourself with all of your strength to nish as strong as you can. All you can think of when you cross is how alive you feel, how sick to your stomach you are, and how sore and exhausted you feel. This triathlon has brought so many wonderful memories into my life. From the amount of training I put into it to the amount of fun it is, this triathlon is the best experience I have ever had in my life.


It’s not about the medal, the training or how active you are. It’s about the people, the teams, the faces of the athletes, the sweat, and everyone there just to either watch or to help out. But most importantly, it’s about the fun of participating and wearing that big smile on your face when you see your parents standing there beaming with pride.
