Here it is....my 100th post....I find that hard to believe!
My post today is a feel-good post! Back on Wednesday when the Epic Canadian Race began their contest for free sneakers, someone posted about giving them to the poor. Luke MacDonald of Aerobics First does a lot of work for the homeless where he takes gently used sneakers/socks and donates them to local shelters. This past October he participated in a function called Connect that connects businesses with the homeless. He properly fitted over 250 individuals with new-to-them footwear. A goosebumps moment he says. Someone in the TTP took this idea and ran with it...excuse the pun. She posted a message that she would gather coats, sneakers, socks, etc and deliver them to Luke today. The TTP are a competitive bunch so when Luke told us that the largest donation to date was 365 pieces, the challenge was on!
Per a post on facebook from the member, the TTP and others were able to donate a total of over 500 items today. We are already looking forward to next year and what we can do to help others!!

While at Aerobics First, I also got fitted for my free pair of sneakers. I think Luke knows me all too well, as look at the color he gave me!!!
And one more picture of my meals the last couple of days. The first is a salmon pasta supper from last night, the 2nd is my chicken quesadilla (from the local TBR) from lunch today. Both were yummy!
