This had to be the most fun volunteer job at the Tropical Triathlon 2013. It was the brainchild of Mary Lindsey who created the outfit for the Kiwanis children’s
event, introducing the kids to swim safely at our recently reopened Olympic size swimming pool. The mermaid outfit was just waiting to be used again. I did say if anyone is depressed next year they can wear the dress and guide the runners on that sharp right turn. The response was, well amazing. It was for the runners. Mary was so right on, the responses were : “Ariel!” “Thank YOU” “keeps me going” “you look gorgeous” “awesome” “a vision arising from the mist” “thumbs up”, lots and lots of likes as you can see from the faces. Now who is Mary ?
Me thinks next year there should be a whole lot of mermaids at critical junctures of the race. This is what volunteering is all about, doing for others. SO WORTH IT in Lake Worth.
