Briley Lauren Bell, 10
I am an Austin Fit Kid that is 10 years old. I get straight A’s and love being fit and healthy. My mom started doing triathlons because she was getting older and wanted to do something new. She was having fun and, since I had always played sports, I thought it would be fun. My favorite sports outside of triathlon are soccer and golf. I started triathlon training with my own youth team which is Team Multi-Sport and love the way it feels to compete. The best part is all my friends, and I get to see them at practice. We swim two nights a week, we have run practice once or twice a week and we bike once or twice. My mom and I are going to make it an annual event to go to Spa Girl Tri together each year on Mother’s Day weekend. I enjoy riding my bike with her and my little brother to Andice. We stop and get a treat before we head back. I love my team and I love triathlon. I also like hanging out with my mom’s triathlon club, the Georgetown Triathletes. Everyone in triathlon is nice.
