St. Anthony's Triathalon

St. Anthony's Triathalon

This past weekend, Chris and I traveled to St. Petersburg, Florida for the St. Anthony's Triathalon. Chris participated in the tri with Team in Training, which raises money for Leukemia-Lymphoma Society. There were about 800? participating with TNT and in all, they raised over $2 Million!!!

The triathalon was amazing! I have never been to one or seen anything like it. TNT was also amazing! They are wonderful people who did an amazing thing. They competed in a triathalon for others... They swam a mile, biked 25 miles and ran 6.2 miles. There was one lady on Chris's team who when they started training, she did not know how to swim! AND She did it!!! Each Team had an honored hero. Atlanta's honored hero actually participated in the triathalon. He was amazing. He was the guest speaker at the Pasta Party, prior to the race.

I am so proud of my husband for doing what he did. He finished in 3 hours and 7 minutes. He DID IT and he did it for other people, people who are battling cancer, people... like my mom.

Here are the pictures from the weekend. I hope you enjoy them!
