BENEFITING: Surfrider Foundation
EVENT DATE: Oct 09, 2011
I’m running my first triathlon!
Will you please help me support the Surfrider Foundation in the process?
Let me give you a quick story of how this came to be. I started running a few years ago to get in shape for soccer. Even though running wasn’t the most exciting activity for me, I liked the feeling of my body adapting to a higher level of fitness. This led me to running in a few races around town, but now I’ve decided to get into an entirely different level of fitness – I’ve decided to do a triathlon. (.75k Swim, 20k Bike, 5k Run)
And not just any triathlon, but one that is close to my favorite place to be active – the beaches of St. Augustine. Thanks to information from books and web sites, I’ve put together a triathlon training program and I’m currently deep in training. Things are going well enough that I think I will be able to finish the triathlon. This not only makes me confident enough to tell other people what I’m trying to do, but I want to go a step further, and take this opportunity to help one of my favorite charities via the triathlon – the Surfrider Foundation.
The Surfrider Foundation is an organization that works to protect and preserve the world's oceans, waves, and beaches. The Surfrider Foundation largely focuses its work on such issues as water quality, beach access, beach and surf spot preservation, and sustaining marine and coastal systems. I’ve been a member of this organization for years and would like to help them out as much as I can.
So I ask you to support me in my latest adventure by donating to the Surfrider Foundation using the button above. By doing so, you will be supporting me and ensuring that we will continue to enjoy our beaches and waterways.
Thank you for supporting me and the Surfrider Foundation!
Cheer me on for my first sprint triathlon: October 9, 2011 at the Marineland Triathlon.
