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.

Mile 25: ACS Dolphin Dash

Cheryl made it to the 25 mile mark and is still looking good. The last five miles were in a very urban environment. Now she is headed back towards the ocean, but is keeping her eyes peeled for squirrels. She stocked the little pocket in her running shorts with salt tablets and advil. Ah the glories of the running life. For video go to ACS-National's facebook page.


  1. Squirrels are no match for Cheryl. 25 miles... congratulations.
    Ice bath at 55?
