Vote for Tina Fab

 VOTE For Tina

It started a month ago with me reading a notice on FaceBook:  
What? wow....

I read on and got the skinny on the contest sponsored by Genuine Health, a natural sports nutrition company that makes products to fuel workouts and help in recovery! I had tried their part becaue they are natural. They have products derived from natural sources. I loved their protein bars for recovery too! So WHY not enter...

I sure would love to WIN 10 GRAND. It would pay for my TransRockies Race entry (this is the TOP of my bucket list of all races!) My travel. Offset training and help with personal training and recovery expenses!!!

You can VOTE every day until August 31. You can vote once a day per IP address. 

I implore my readers to help me out! I am not as well known as a few of my competitiors. But I think that I have a noble goal and a story to tell!! And, like some of them, have not been featured by media outlets to ask for votes. So am hoping some of you might read this and vote for me. Slow and steady climb may be the way to win.

I ask you to take a sec to click the link and vote. And spread the word!


And for those of you wanting to read my submission:
I want to activate my inner champion! And, am hoping with the help of Genuine Health, I want to run The TransRockies Run. It is a multiple point-to-point trail race. In six days racers cover 120 miles and climb 20,000 feet in elevation. This race is all about overcoming adversity and sharing adventure. The idea of finding one’s self on steep, narrow dirt trails on Rocky Mountain ridges sounds crazy, but is it the kind of adventure I want to do. It is the next step in finding my inner champ!
Five years ago I was unhappy. Overweight. Lacking direction. I had lost my way. And so I turned to the one thing over the years that had helped me gain perspective: Exercise. I began running again. At first it was walking. And then it was running and walking. And, after my doctor told me I needed to do more to lose weight, I began running in earnest. I started with short distances. And when I finally worked up to finishing a 12km race in May , I thought that maybe, just maybe I could do a half marathon in August. In training for that I lost over 40 pounds. I changed my mind-set, too. I am stronger, firmer, fabulous!! My body has really changed. Since 2011 I have run 2 marathons, 17 halfmarathons, 2 10-milers, 2 12km races, 17 10km races, 2 8km races, 9 5km races….and been on two ultra marathon relay teams! WOHOOOO! I have found passion, and love that running gives me strength, self-esteem and confidence.
Proper nutrition has been vital to my mental and physical transformation! Genuine Health products help me get the nutrition and assistance I need. I have been dropping weight, all the while gaining strength and endurance. I have been a long time user of the Greens+ for extra energy. I recently started using the activFuel+ to help sustain energy and endurance on my long training runs. No artificial sweeteners also make my tummy happy! After my long runs I also like to indulge in a proteins+express bar! It hits the spot after my 2 or 3 hour run on a Sunday!!
This year I have been pushing myself to run further and try new things. In the past couple years I discovered trail running. I love getting out there with nature and that is the most challenging kind of running I have ever done. I have been training for a few half marathons, including some long distance trail runs. My first trail half marathon this year was cancelled due to the massive flooding in Canmore, but I want to persevere. I still have five more half marathons to run this year – in Edmonton, Kelowna, Canmore and Calgary! In between theses half marathons I will do some trail races. Looking forward, I want to push myself and create NEW physical and mental limits. The TransRockies Run is on THAT bucket list!
So, how would $10,000 help me achieve my fitness dreams and goals? The prize money offered by Genuine Health would give me something I cannot afford. It would help me pay for training and equipment (especially during winter months) to ensure I had the strength and endurance to ensure my inner champ comes OUT! It would help cover the travel expenses and fees for The TransRockies Run, as well as pay for a few trail races to help me prepare me for the demanding task of running several hours a day for 6 days in a row. I’d also use some money to ensure I had proper nutrition, including a supply of Genuine Health products to support me in fueling my goals.
I am hooked on how great running makes me feel! No more panting while bringing in the groceries. It’s amazing to feel proud of myself and my daily accomplishments. Running really has been a life changing experience for me. And with the help of Genuine Health I want to keep growing and changing!
