Vote for Shirley!!!

In case you are not familiar with Shirley's blog, I just wanted the folks who visit here to vote for Shirley as she seeks support for her triathlon training. Here is a note from Shirley:

Dear Blogger Friends,

Just found out yesterday that I made it to the first round of Team Evotri, which involves the opportunity to win a cool triathlon sponsorship package (bike, coaching, wetsuit, etc). I need your help, though, as the next round involves voting by email. There are 10 folks in the round including me. Our 3-minute video applications, along with voting criteria, can be found at www.evotri.com. If you just want to view my video, go to http://youtube.com/watch?v=_RZAV0WAAG8. All of us in round one have motivating/inspiring stories that got us there so I encourage you to view the other videos and judge for yourself whether you think I deserve your vote.

To vote for me, I need you to send an email to vote@evotri.com with my name, Shirley Pratt, in the subject line. The body of the email will NOT be read. Only one vote per person, multiple votes from the same email address won't count. Voting for round one closes tomorrow, Wed, 2/20, at 11:59pm PST.

If I make it to the finals, I will be asking you to vote for me up to 3 times. If you do not want to receive further emails from me about this, let me know. On the other hand, if you know others who might be interested in voting for me, please forward them this note or consider giving me a plug on your blog like Ellie did (thanks Ellie!). I’d be glad to return the favor in the future if the opportunity ever arises and would love to get to know more blogger friends. In fact, chances are I met you via someone else's blog :-)

Anywhoo, I appreciate any support I can get. If you’ve already voted, thank you for doing so, particularly if the vote was for me!

Thank you to everyone who voted for me. Unfortunately, I did not make it to round two but there are 2 more team slots and 2 more contests ... There's also 7 folks who did make round 2 and so please vote for one of them. Go to www.evotri.com to find out how.
