How do you become an Alaska Iron Kid?
I was thinking about this question, and shiver of fear went up to my spine. Just how could these kids be able to have the strength and other stamina to be able to swim, bike and run when I myself is having a hard time finishing my 10K run.
I was at Wow , Subic as early as 5 am; and I thought that I am early but upon reaching the venue for the 2016 Alaska Iron Kids Philippines; there are actually a hundreds of kids with their parents preparing their equipment like bikes and others thing for the triathlon.
I saw familiar faces at the venue but was amazed that there are as young as 3 years old joining the event.
For today , I just want to share to you the moments on what this kids go through to be part of the Alaska Iron Kids
Honestly , the event is not just about the announcement of winners but the journey of the event

Kids don’t run alone, they have their families that go with them and support them. From their families, they get their moral support and the power to go on. Winning is just an icing on the cake but the journey of finishing the game is what it is all about
At the end of the finish line, more than the trophy, I was happy to see arms of each parent waiting for their children, hugging them for a journey worth finishing.
Each smile is worth a thousand words
