Inspiration Monday

I wanted to take a second to highlight a friend of mine who I find to be incredibly inspirational.  She isn't a soccer player, although I met her because of soccer.  When I played for the Breakers, Mary was our equipment manager - although her presence meant much more than that.  She was a friend and a confidant, somebody who went the extra mile in all that she did.   From our team, she moved up the ranks at various other places, always following her dream and always working her butt off.

Currently she owns a company called MAVRX  ( and I wanted to give the site a shout out for all you Christmas present buyin' fools out there.  So share with your parents, friends, & families.   She sells totally awesome apparel and I think it is stuff you would all love.

Her mission statement:  "Founded on the concept of bringing art, music, and the action sports culture together, MAVRX has not only provided its customers with limited edition apparel but has taken steps to integrate itself into the skateboarding, snowboarding, surfing, and wakeboarding communities.

We have sponsored many boardsports and celebrity events nationwide. With your help, we have also donated partial proceeds from every item sold to various charities and has supported organizations such as the
American Cancer Society, Breast Friends, Human Rights Campaign, Keep A Breast Foundation, Skate 4 Cancer, Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure, Skate Like A Girl: Portland, San Francisco, and Seattle Chapters, and Stand Up To Cancer.

MAVRX continues to grow with the unique spirit and support of talented artists, athletes, and musicians. We take great pride in establishing ourselves as more than just a brand, but a maverick among our competitors."

This excerpt is from Mary's Facebook page and is one of the reason's I admire her so much:

Almost everyday I hear, "I don't know how you work so much." It's because I have goals and each day I take steps to accomplish them. I'm up at 6:00 a.m. and I don't get home from work until midnight most nights. My parents say I need to stop working as much, but my goals aren't going to get accomplished if I do nothing. That's my whole view. Hard work will pay off eventually...and then I can order another drink on the beach as I watch the sun set and all the people walking by in MAVRX hoodies :)

She also has a really cute dog named Punki
