The Purpose of the "50-Mile Dolphin Dash"

Welcome to my blog leading up to the American Cetacean Society's 2nd Annual "50-Mile Dolphin Dash" fundraiser run on Wednesday, July 6th, Monterey, CA. I'm willing to shed 50 miles worth of blood, sweat, and (possibly) tears to raise funds to attend the annual meeting of the International Whaling Commission (IWC) in St. Helier, Jersey (UK), where ACS will be speaking out against commercial whaling and compromises to international whale protection measures. I'm also the Executive Director of ACS, so I put my heart and "sole" where my mouth is.

Once the map is active, you can display course elevation by clicking on the box on the upper right-hand side of the screen labeled Info & Tools.  I would describe the course as "rolling terrain" of average/medium difficulty.  The Palos Verdes Marathon ( route comprises a section of the course. 

The course is a 25-mile out-and-back course, beginning and ending at the National Headquarters of the American Cetacean Society (ACS), located in Point Fermin Park, San Pedro, CA.  The event will begin at 5:30 am on Thursday, June 17th, 2010 and will end...whenever I finish.
