Smile Train Tri

June 29, 2009

Today was awesome!

I was blessed to watch my husband and daughter complete a ‘sprint’ tri today! A sprint is usually less than 1/2 mile swim, 12-15 miles biking, then a 5k run…give or take.

My husband has completed >20 of these as they are a distance he can comfortably train for and still work full time, do yardwork, and have a social life! The cross training is great!

My daughter…well it was her first…and I don’t think it was her last! She had a blast! No nerves at all. She just enjoyed herself…smiling the whole way!

The tri was a charity fundraiser for the Smile Train organization. Very worthwhile cause! They raise money for kids born with a cleft palate who cannot pay for the surgery themselves. Just look at some of the before and after pictures of these kids and you will be amazed!

The most fun part of the day was to see the two come in on the bike together, smile for a pic in the transition area, then kept going for the final 3 mile leg….if that was not enough… to see them coming in together cross the finish line hand in hand…priceless!

Yes! I am blessed! Awesome day!

There are so many worthy causes out there that need our help. Do some research and pick one or pick several and do what you can to make a difference. I know the tri today will make a difference to many kids with a more beautiful smile!

Gotta Run!
