Catalina Island 22 Mile Paddle- 28 mile Run- 22 Mile Paddle in 3 Days
There have been so many exciting things happening lately and I feel it’s high time to start up this blog of mine! A particularly special event is approaching this Saturday that I feel is so important to share with my fans, family and friends.
As most of you already know I have turned my passion into a career as a personal trainer and yoga instructor, but what some of you may not know is that I am an avid paddle boarder!
As a little girl I had always dreamt of moving to the sunny shores of California, where water-based activities are plentiful and easily accessible. After finally moving to the golden state, I gained my bearings and paddle boarding was one of the first water sports to spark my interest. Before I knew it, my friend Jeff Denholm had challenged me to enter a local race. Never being one to turn down a challenge I rented a board the next day and showed up to the race without any prior training. I LOVED being out in the water so much that I decided to get certified – the rest is history!
Now, this is where the special event comes into play. This Saturday me and the Pro SUP Shop crew will be paddle boarding 20 miles, starting from The Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes, CA to Catalina Island. The following day we will participate in the Catalina Marathon. The third and final day, it’s back on our boards to Palos Verdes.
The purpose behind this event is to raise epilepsy and money to help funs programs and research of the UCLA Pediatric Neurology. You can find out more about the cause, and Callie – the little girl who has been the inspiration behind it all by clicking here.
I am honored to be a part of such an amazing cause, and will be sure to keep you updated as things unfold!
Your love and support means the world!
Keep it simple and positive,
