STRIVE Parent Carmen Aton reflects on her first STRIVE SPLASH N DASH at the Ellen Linson Splash Park in College Park, MD.

Read her story below:

"Running and swimming in the Splash and Dash this year with Strive to Tri was not only fun but it was rejuvenating."  

"I can’t tell you how good it felt to participate in this race. The amount of support and motivation present is amazing. You don’t have to be an amateur bodybuilder or a fitness fanatic to participate. You just have to have the desire to do it.  I would run this race every year, that they have it. I am actively looking into participating in other races because I accomplished this."  

"I believe because I participated in this event, I have the confidence to participate in other run/walks and fun runs.  This has greatly impacted my health goals.  I am so glad that I participated!"
