For Charity - The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Team in Training

If you asked me 7 months ago my thoughts on running, I would say that I despised the thought of it! Ask me today, and I’ll say I enjoy it for my health, to build friendships and most importantly I’m raising money for a great cause, so it’s vital. What has changed my tune? Living in Monterey! The weather here is gorgeous. It beacons you to come outside and be active. The sun is shining, but there is always a slight breeze, so it’s never too hot. Each day is perfect for running. I’ve also found that it is an activity that we can do as a family, which is always fun when we can spend time together outdoors and away from distractions.

Monterey has made me a runner.

So what does any of this have to do with my usual craftiness that I post here? My fundraising campaign, of course! I have signed up for my first ½ Marathon for this October. I will be running the San Francisco Women’s Half Marathon as a member of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Team in Training.

October may sound like it is far away, but I want to raise a minimum of $2,500, so I need to get to work! To help me reach my goal, I have decided to put all the proceeds from my craft-makings towards my fundraising campaign. Or if you would like to just donate, that is awesome too!

Here is my link:

To get started, maybe you would like a super cute adjustable non-slip head band? They are awesome for keeping your hair out of your face and sweat out of your eyes. I’m making them for $7 each, or 2 for $13. If you would like them personalized, they are $11 each or 2 for $20. Please help this great cause!
