Good morning, folks!
As you know, I’m working with Team in Training to raise money for blood cancer research. Mal and I will be running the Honolulu Marathon on December 12, in loving memory of his mother, who was taken by cancer well before her time.
Cancer really strikes an emotional chord with Mal and me. It’s a horrible disease, and we hope a cure is found soon. I know most of you feel the same way, which is why money for research is so important. Here’s how you can help!
Introducing the Breville Juice Fountain Plus!!!
Now, who doesn’t want a juicer in their life? These things are awesome! You can practically get all your nutrients for the day in just one glass of juice! 😀
The retain price for the Breville Juice Fountain Plus is $149.99, but you can enter for a chance to win it for just $5! Just make a donation to our Team in Training page and you could win a brand new juicer!
Here’s how the raffle will work:
- $5 gets you ONE raffle ticket.
- $10 gets you TWO raffle tickets.
- $15 gets you THREE raffle tickets.
- $25 gets you SIX raffle tickets. What a deal!
- $50 gets you FIFTEEN raffle tickets. Serious deal!
The contest will run from now until Wednesday, August 25.
To pick the winner, I will list everyone’s name in an Excel spreadsheet (one entry for $5, two entries for $10, fifteen entries for $50, etc.), and Mal will pick a winner using the Random Integer Generator. Then, I will then mail the juicer to the winner.
If you enjoy reading Carrots ‘N’ Cake, please enter our raffle. After all, I provide you with hours of entertainment and adorable photos of Murphy, and it would mean a lot to Mal and me to have your support. Plus, TNT is a wonderful cause and it’s a great opportunity to win a Breville Juice Fountain Plus for a fraction of the price.
Thank you for your support of Team and Training and for helping us reach our fundraising goal! 😀
I switched up my usual overnight oats for cereal and granola this morning. Coco of Opera Girl Cooks sent me a sample of her Double Coconut Granola, so I gave it a try this morning. I mixed it with Nature’s Path Maple Pecan Crunch Cereal, sliced strawberries, and non-fat milk.
I can never eat just one bowl of cereal, so I went back for a second serving of Nature’s Path Maple Pecan Crunch Cereal with milk.
Surprisingly, two bowls of cereal filled me up. The test, however, is how long it’ll keep my stomach satisfied.
I also drank a glass of iced coffee with breakfast. Obviously.
Question of the Day
Have you ever run a marathon? If not, would you ever consider running one?
For the marathoners out there, what’s your best advice to someone training for a marathon (or half marathon)?
