There are a few spots left in the Swim for Smiles kids’ triathlon, held in Chapel Hill on June 1. The distances are quite kind, and parents are encouraged to bike and run alongside their children 10 and under.
Lily is signed up and has been training hard—this weekend, we may get her a new bike with gears and hand brakes. I asked her if she would like to take the triathlon class my friend Monette is teaching. “No,” she said. “You’re my coach.”
