Make a difference with the Run & Walk for the Whales

Disclaimer: I work for Pacific Whale Foundation and am the Race Director for the Run & Walk for the Whales; however, I am writing this post on my own free will. All opinions expressed are solely my own.

In just over 3 weeks it is race day and the count down is completely different for me. This race I am not running. This race I am directing but the days leading up the race can be equally nerve wrecking as I go through my to do list and ensure everything is lined up and in place. But just like the days leading up to a race, it is exciting beyond belief!

Runners follow a training plan leading up to race day. There are good days, there are bad days, and there are in between days. Directing a race has the same ebb and flow of emotions as you tackle task after task but for me, I find it exciting. I truly think about the runner's experience and want them to have a great run with lots of new memories. On top of that, care about the cause...deeply.

Pacific Whale Foundation's mission is to protect the oceans through science and advocacy and those running for the whales are helping to support the research, conservation, and education programs and projects at Pacific Whale Foundation and trust me, the ladies and gentlemen at this non-profit work very hard, sometimes around the clock, to ensure the mission is being upheld and the marine environment and their inhabitants are being protected.

You can be part of this whether you are on Maui racing or by joining the Virtual Team. All race participants and Virtual Team members are entered into the door prize drawings and don't worry, there will be separate door prize drawings for the Virtual Team. I am so grateful for the companies and individuals who are supporting the Run & Walk for the Whales and Pacific Whale Foundation with their door prize donations: Allied Medals, Bart Yasso, Bolder Band, Dean Karnazes, FitApproach/SweatPink, Kindrunner, Lift Your Sole, Running Chics, Running on the Wall, ShowerPill, Sports Authority, and I am sure more are yet to come!

I invite you to join us in a wonderful event or at least follow along at #run4whales.

Daily Gratitude: I am thankful to give back to the running community.
Daily Bible Verse: Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.~ Phillipians 2:3
