20 Miles Accomplished

20 Miles Accomplished

This Saturday, along with my running team, Team In Training, I completed 20 miles. And I feel GREAT! That was such an amazing thing, to run a full 20 miles. I never though I would be able to say that I did such a thing…

All The Generous Donations

I wanted to add a little onto my post from yesterday… ALL of the donations that I have received for my Team In Training fundraising have been generous. I feel blessed and truly thankful for each and every donation and each and every person who

Today was the last official day for my Team In Training donations to be submitted. This morning I was a little worried because I was still about $500 away from my goal- after figuring in some last minute checks that I submitted via snail-mail. So I was completely taken aback when I got an email from Angie at Rock Bottom Brewery

A couple of months ago I had a fundraiser at Rock Bottom Brewery. All of the proceeds from their Beer Tapping (releasing a new beer) would go to my fundraising efforts. The new beer being tapped is $1 a pint for one hour. Well, that was a fantastic event with a HUGE turnout! It was especially great because I got to see a lot of my friends that I have not seen in a while.

Anyway, I just got the donation from the company… $2,000. My goodness that made my day! I am now way over my fundraising goal and that much more will go toward helping those with blood cancers. I feel blessed for being a part of this amazing group, TNT, and helping the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. And now my stresses of not being able to raise enough are gone.

Great way to ease into the weekend! Tomorrow’s Friday!!! Everyone have a superb rest of your days.
