Tag the World 2010

Sunday, August 22, 2010
Kapiolani Park/Walls Waikiki (?) I think that's what that beach is called!

This was the 2nd annual Tag the World biathlon held in Waikiki. Besides being a global charity, it also benefits Kids Hurt too, a program to help out the foster children in Hawaii. I volunteered for this last year and had a great time...I couldn't wait for it again this year. They changed it up a little this year, instead of a triathlon, they shortened it to a biathlon, which was good for me because I took pictures of the bike leg last year and it was kind of boring. There weren't as many celebrities this year but it was still good fun!

You can check out all of the pics from today here...

The water must've been really bad because there were only a few people that were smiling as they came out of the water!
This was the first place finisher...
