Registration for this year's Nautica Malibu Triathlon closed out after less than a week. Luckily, Disney's Pirate and Princess made it and will be swimming, biking and running our way to victory on September 14.

This year, we have added another princess to our relay team -- Tammy! As it stands right now, Tammy will be swimming, Rene will be biking and I will be running.
Tammy and "friend"!
The best part about this sprint triathlon is that we are working together to raise money for an excellent organization - Childrens Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA). Last year, Team Disney raised more than $235,000 for CHLA! We're hoping to raise MORE than that amount this year and keep our #1 ranking in the Entertainment Industry Challenge.
We can do better than this!
As some of you already know, when I joined the Disney Tri Team last year, it changed my life. The team had a tremendous effect on helping me to get through a personally challenging time in my life. The feeling of accomplishment, not only in becoming a better runner and a stronger biker, but also in raising money for a cause that I fully support and believe in, is phenomenal. And I have found some great friends and inspiring leaders on the team.
If you'd like to support me (and Tammy, Rene, and Team Disney) by making a donation to CHLA, please visit my fundraising web page. Any contribution you make is greatly appreciated and will make a huge difference in the lives of sick children.
