The Care Bears Movie.
As a small child, I would line up my favorite stuffed animals and watch this, Lady and the Tramp, and Never Ending Story every damn time I was home sick… must have drove my mother crazy. The bears look so constipated when they stare… it’s like they’re pooping love out of their tummies.
LA Tri Club put on a wonderful event at the Culver City Plunge yesterday. It was a 5am to midnight collective swim from Los Angeles to New York, hence “Coast 2 Coast”. The primary goal being to raise funds so that area children may be given free swim lessons throughout the summer. Ideally increasing their love for the water, and decreasing instances of drownings and near drownings. The secondary challenge was for the swimmers to collectively swim the distance between Los Angeles and New York, setting a world record.
I have yet to see anything on the results of the total distance swum, but the most important thing is those swim lessons! What a wonderful way to pay it forward to your community. Way to go LA Tri Club and all of their sponsors! I went with a friend for a 30 minute time slot, and we had a blast cruising in our lane for a hair under a mile each. As one would hope at an event like this, everyone we met was enthusiastic, friendly, and positive. I hope they meet all their goals, and do it again next year. What a great day!
