On Sunday, more more than 1300 women joined us to swim, bike and run for the Tri for a Cure. Despite a rainy start, the passion and excitement was visible on every face.
Our day was full of thrills, watching the first wave of cancer survivors dive into Portland Harbor, bike through the hills and marshes of Cape Elizabeth, and finally run along South Portland's lighthouse-dotted shoreline. The real joy came at the finish line, where we saw so many triathletes join hands with friends and family to complete the last few steps together.
