Acts of kindness and recent events

First off,

Today I got inducted to the National Honor Society!!! I am so happy. I have worked really hard in high school to keep up with my grades. =)

Secondly,

Today was a "climbing challenge" for the junior high team I help coach at the climbing gym. It was a lot of fun. One of the girls in the program is doing really well on a raw-vegan diet. I spoke with her mother and she seemed SO SUPPORTIVE!!! It was so great to see such a young girl striving to be a raw vegan. SO COOL! I ran to my car and grabbed my 80/10/10 book and a book about athletic performance and raw foods (both by dr. douglas graham, my favorite raw vegan writer and "leader.") I told them to borrow and read them. I'm just spreading the word, you know!? =)

She is a great climber too. She was still using the rental shoes from the climbing gym... so yesterday I brought some old climbing shoes that i used to wear and I gave her a pair. She was really thankful. She deserved it! Today when she came in to the gym, she gave me RAW PISTACHIOS! I was so excited. I've been wanting to try raw pistachios for SO LONG!!!

Also,

AT the event tonight, the only food that we had for the kids was fruit and veggies. IT WAS SO AWESOME! We had apples, REALLY RIPE PEARS (so good), oranges, bananas, mango, carrots, and celery. It wAS AWESOME!!



Hope you are all well.

That is so cool about the girl turning on to raw veganism! Did you introduce her to it in the first place?

Also, congrats on making it onto NHS!

congrats on the honors society ash! that makes me so happy to hear about the food at the event as well - i remember chatting with some of the guys several years ago about how the climbing team eats hot dogs and pizza when they get together. not so great for growing athletes.
