Where has the time gone? When people said college was going to go by fast, they weren’t kidding. It has been wayyy too long since my last blog post so here I am writing this at 11pm at night. This a short update blog, but don’t worry I’m working on a bigger one to come soon!
I am so excited to share with you about my past fundraiser and I can’t wait to announce the future ones as they come! This past month I did a Succulent Fundraiser. Everyone loves plants that don’t die right?!
Thanks to the Succulent Source, I had the wonderful opportunity to sell succulents and raise money for young adults with cancer. After a few weeks of having little plants in my room, on the windowsill and on the floor, I was able to raise $370!! I am so thankful to everyone who bought a plant. (If you want to see some of the new plant owners be sure to check out my story on Instagram under the succulent fundraiser tab!)
The next fundraiser coming out is a T-shirt fundraiser! As you may know, I am running across America with one of my best friends from college, so I am excited to do this fundraiser with her. Keep an eye out early November to get yours! We’re going to design them next week.
Now that you’ve had the fundraiser updates, I’ll give you the running ones! The shin splints are going away. This past weekend I was able to do 6 miles and had very little pain! My plan has gone up to over 20 miles a week and it feels wonderful. Running is becoming easy again and I am so excited for what there is to come. As the time gets closer, I will be posting more training run pictures so you can keep updated! I hope to be able to post more on the blog about what is happening.
Next week I am hoping to post a blog post about happiness again. Even in the midst of this, it is important to remember happiness and I can’t wait to share with you about a topic called “bucket filling.” Be sure to check it out to see how you can make others happier and make yourself happy too!
