Today’s Run – 6.1 Mile Runch TM @ 3 incl 54 minutes & 54 buckets of sweat
Yesterday – Jillian Michaels – 45 min No More Trouble Zones (because they’re all in pain now)
I’m back in trying to gather up some muscle and strength so I’m rekindling my relationship with Jillian; however, let’s talk about more important things now. Pie! Pecan, Apple, Pumpkin, Sweet Potato pie.
I don’t usually do this (other than that one time I ran Boston Marathon for a charity) but I got some charity pie promotion. It also happens to be really really good. Best pecan pie ever.
This mostly targets people in the Boston area (but of course all cash donations are always accepted), I’m selling pies for Community Serving’s Pie in the Sky event to provide families affected by critical illness with wholesome Thanksgiving meals. Basically, volunteers (like me) sell as many pies as possible with all proceeds benefiting families in need. The pies are donated by local bakeries and restaurants and are always very tasty! Each pie costs $25. Apple pies, pecan pies, pumpkin pies, sweet potato pies, and no sugar added apple pies are available. If you are interested in ordering a pie please visit Community Servings. Pies can be picked up from various locations throughout the Boston Metro area on Wednesday, November 21st. The last day for pie orders is Saturday, November 17th.
About Pie in the Sky
Now entering its 20th year, Pie in the Sky is the World’s Greatest Bake Sale! Last year, the sale raised $550,000 to support Community Servings’ meals and nutrition program for the critically ill, and we can’t wait to do it even bigger and better this year!
Pie in the Sky involves more than 150 of Greater Boston’s best chefs, bakers and caterers donating their time, talent and resources to provide our pie buyers with delicious Thanksgiving Pies. Equally amazing, over 400 volunteers – individuals, corporations, churches and synagogues, schools and social clubs – work hard throughout the fall to sell, organize and distribute more than 15,000 apple, pecan, pumpkin and sweet potato pies.
But we couldn’t do it without our pie buyers! Each $25 pie you purchase will provide a week’s worth of free, home-delivered meals for a man, woman or child in Eastern Massachusetts who is battling a critical illness such as HIV/AIDS, cancer, diabetes or MS.
