Tales From The Inbox – August 29, 2008

Creating Interest and Viral Ventures
: You know - Digg, Hype, Buzz, and the sort that give you the opportunity to generate virality for your posts. I was introduced to another one called Root Zoo that is geared toward sports. I have honestly not had the time to try this one out yet. Drop me a note if you have and let me know what you think.

Life Rolls On: This non-profit announced its 5th Annual Night By The Ocean event that will take place on October 12, 2008. This will be an amazing evening since it will be at the famed Kodak Center in Hollywood (you know, where they have the Academy Awards now). The announcement goes like this:

“Please join Life Rolls On for our most glamorous and important night of the year, as we bring the beauty of the ocean to the heart of Hollywood for the 5th Anniversary Night by the Ocean presented by Disaboom. Held on Sunday, October 12 at the legendary Kodak Theatre’s Grand Ballroom - the home of the Official OSCAR® Party each year - this will be a black-tie affair to honor those who have made extraordinary contributions to the SCI community and celebrate the remarkable work of Life Rolls On Foundation. Brought to life by the producers of the MTV Movie Awards, VH-1 Divas Live and more, Night by the Ocean will feature Wolfgang Puck-catered cuisine, hosted bar, a spectacular auction, A-List entertainment, and stories that will tug at your heartstrings.

This inspirational evening sells out fast, so don’t miss your chance to be a part of one of Southern California’s most memorable and engaging events of the year. For more information or to reserve your tickets to this event, please contact Life Rolls On Foundation at (310) 807-5488, send an email to NBTO (at) liferollson (dot) org, or register online.”

Seating is limited to 500 so don’t miss out! Life Rolls On is focused on young people who have been affected by spinal cord injuries and is responsible for the They Will Surf Again events.

Olympic Workouts: Ask and you shall receive – I mentioned how motivated I was to stick to my workout after seeing the Olympic athletes and I was sent a link to some of the types of routines they use. Check out 3 Olympic Workouts You Can Do To Get Ready For 2012. You’ll get some info on how to train like Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps, and Dara Torres. I am even more motivated now and will be incorporating some of the information into my routine.

How Do I Get Here? If you are interested in being featured in an upcoming edition of Tales From The Inbox just send me an email and I will let you know how. You can reach me through the "view my complete profile" link at the top of the page and then click "email" under the "contact" heading.

I have to admit, I clicked on the Olympic workout link and then thought, hmm, that sounds hard, I think I'll stick to my usual routine.

Ha! Yeah - I didn't say I would incorporate ALL of it!
