Yesterday Mike and I took the food we have collected in just two weeks of Manzanita Pace Setters, it amounted to 65 pounds!
The North County Food Bank is thrilled and so are we, great job. Not only are we all taking better care of ourselves we are helping others and having fun to boot!
What more can you ask for?
Well actually since you ask…
When at the North County Food Bank I had the opportunity to meet Tony, she is in charge of The Norht County Clothing Bank, which also takes other house hold items like pots and pans.
So I am now adding to the collection of food any other items you may want to give to others that are in need. You can now bring with you clean folded unwanted clothing, shoes, or kitchen utensils.
Mike and I are happy to take these items with us to the North County Clothing Bank while we are taking the collected food to the North County Food Bank.
Thank you for you participation and please call me if you have any comments or questions about this program or the MPS club.
Here is an article that explains a bit more about the philosophy of stretching that I adhere to.No comments

I am so excited the Manzanita Pace Setters are off to a super start.
We had 15 people, including an 8 year old girl Katie that ran the whole 3 miles with her mom.
And two dogs!
Some folks ran, some jogged and plenty of walkers, its all good.
We collected a full box of food for the North County Food Bank and that is the topping on the cake.
The plan is to meet every Saturday morning rain or shine and head out a new course each week that will be approximately 3 miles with optional add-on milage. You can walk, jog, trot, canter, lope or sprint its up to you! Do you own thing!
Yes you can bring:
Dogs (bring a leash in case we do a road thats a bit busier)
There are no rules but you did need to show up and if you can bring a can of food for the donation.
Come join us anytime!No comments
That was easy!
Join us next year, we promise a bon fire and maybe a bit of warming beverage and sweets!
