Be kind whenever possible. It is always possible. -Dalai Lama .As the start of a new school year begins and my triathlon season ends I have been reflecting a great deal on the idea of kindness. Praying that the children my kids are with at school will be kind to them, and that my kids will be kind to others as well; as I have tried so hard to teach them to be. And throughout this season, as I have completed triathlons, ran races and participated in open water swims, I have observed kindness all around me. But I have also learned a great deal about being a kind triathlete to others as well, and that has always been in the back of my mind while racing. Just as I hope my children have learned through my example, I too have learned from the incredible #wattieinkhitsquad I’ve had the opportunity of being a part of this year. Regardless of an athlete’s ability, skills or experience, every person I have met through social media, on our Facebook page and most importantly out on the course was KIND. That’s the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of the amazing team and family that @wattieink has created. And I have been honored to wear my #wattieink kit proudly and tried to be kind in each and every event and situation. Because being kind is ALWAYS possible. ?: @tannerscholten
