It was really fun to lead them along and see them gut it out, surging past one another, then either blowing up, or just being courteous to wait up for each other. There may have even been some seeds of rivalry mixed in there as well.
They said they want to race Pikes with dad next, but I had to explain they have another 12 years to wait on that one. Plenty of time to train!
Miraculously, no pre-race trips to the potty, unlike myself, who ends up there 4 or 5 times beforehand.
"Good luck sis!"

A final surge, all downhill now!
The final sprint for the line (was a tie).
Proud of their accomplishment.
