Dylan's triathlon with Team in Training, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society

My good friend Dylan Rivas started a blog about his training for the Lavaman triathlon with Team in Training, which is part of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

A few friends have done this (I don't think I ever could) and I think it's a great idea - the triathlon is in Hawaii, which I'm sure is absolutely amazing for the participants. They raise a large sum of money, and 25% or less of what they raise goes towards the participant's flight, coaching, overhead, etc. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society gets the remainder, which is a substantial amount. Moreover, it supports an active lifestyle, which not many fundraisers do!

Here's a haiku in his honor:

Go Dylan Rivas!
Many miles to bike, swim, run
Good luck and have fun
