For the second time since our young company’s inception, The Juice Standard paired with the Las Vegas chapter of Mission I’m Possible Worldwide (MIP) to show folks just how easy it is to achieve maximum WHealth™ and glowing self when what you do with your bod, head and heart matches what you put into it.
On Saturday, Oct. 10, a gaggle of like-minded juicer-joggers gathered at The Rose for a 10k race organized by MIP, a foundation that brings together spirit-filled, community-minded people who work to cross social barriers (think race and economics) to advocate change and meet the social needs of disparate communities through fitness, career development and community outreach programs.
As if those notions weren’t lofty enough, all that connectedness happens through long-distance running. As in, while people are running. Multitasking at its finest.
Founded for all the goodly folks who can walk and chew gum at the same time, MIP was launched by Samantha Jo Alonso (founder of retail boutique Fruition Las Vegas). Last month’s running route and its periodic exercise drills were led by MIP race leader Christian Walker, who kept runners on their toes and encouraged participants to remember that human empowerment, through togetherness, is really the only way to connect.
And what did runners get as they finished? Besides the satisfaction of clocking another six or so miles, they were handed a Singleton of TJS’s Bee I’m Possible, one of our signature nut milks blended from organic raw cashew, vanilla, lemon, lavender, local honey and alkaline water.
(And did we mention all that connecting and empowering stuff happens while running? Yep.)
Here are the pics to prove the awesomeness that comes from great minds thinking alike. Thinking, while jogging at the same time. Which even a few weeks later still amazes us….
