I got this email today. I love hearing stuff like this. It makes all the work worthwhile.
Dear Dr. Bell,
As captain of Team KA-POW, I speak for my teammates in saying that the Lake Travis Relay was one of the most enjoyable and exciting experiences of our lives. I rank it as one of my top 5 life experiences! No matter that we didn’t beat Team Armstrong or many other teams on the water. We formed a bond as a team that day, a bond which to this day feels strong. The race organizers, host restaurant, and other teams made the day even more special for us. We had the opportunity to interact with swimmers from as far away as India, and even got to share the water with Lance Armstrong himself. We are so excited, in fact, that we are forming a second team of fellow Houstonian swimmers. Thank you, Dr. and Mrs. Bell, for hosting such a fabulous swim event!
