My sister is a mermaid.
My sister, Jasmine, is an amazing athlete. She's a triathlete, yogi, fitness guru, she does it all! I wish I could be as motivated and dedicated as she is to fitness and exercise. The other weekend, she did the Mermaid Series Triathlon in beautiful Alameda. I love the thrill of waiting at the finish line for her to come sprinting around the corner. Seeing Jasmine finish a race is so exciting because she always has a huge smile on her face and she does her signature jump-in-the-air-while-crossing-the-finish-line move. This race was particularly special because a dear friend of hers (also a triathlete) is recovering from a brain tumor and played a big part in her beginning years of training. Maybe one day I'll do one of these races, Jas is still trying to talk me into it. Until then, I'll be the proud sister cheering and snapping photos from the sidelines.
