Disclaimer: I am writing this post by my own free will. I am employed by Pacific Whale Foundation. I am the race director for the Run & Walk for the Whales. I am not being paid to write this. Everything I say in this post is my own opinion. Got it? Great!
Did you know on February 4th you could support an amazing cause by running, or walking, for whales?
How cool is that?!
In case you didn't know, I kinda love whales. In fact, it was a very cute dolphin that transformed my life and started me on my course to a B.S. in Marine Biology before getting my MBA but that is a different story.
Nature and whales have always held a certain special spot in my heart. I loved my studies at Texas A&M in Galveston and my time volunteering for the Texas Marine Mammal Stranding Network. I remember the animals I worked with and they melted my heart. Working to make a difference, to save animals in need, is an experience I will never forget. Ironically, it is also in those same college years I came across an amazing running coach who planted the running and fitness seed that would bloom much later in life and is still blooming today.
But that doesn't mean I forgot about those precious marine mammals and the amazing ocean environment that is so critical to so much on Earth. Y'all, we are all connected in so many ways and the air we breath, water we drink, and those precious marine currentS matter. Whales matter too and if you have ever seen one up close and personal, I bet your life will be forever changed.
So on February 4th you have the chance to support a great cause as your race registration or virtual team donation go to a wonderful cause ---- supporting the mission of Pacific Whale Foundation and the researchers, who are the cutest, smartest, most caring people ever, in their programs and projects. Y'all, come on and join me.
I believe so strongly in this cause, and my fitness mission and business, that I am personally donating 5 door prizes to the Run & Walk for the Whales that will include samples of Shakeology and Hydrate PLUS I am offering two prize packages to you amazing followers who have been with me, and continue to support me, through so much that I do. You can enter my blog giveaway below and I will announce the winners post race day to make it one HUGE celebration.

Daily Gratitude: I am thankful to be able to live out the passions of my life.
Daily Bible Verse: Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified. ~ 1 Corinthians 9:24-27
