Good morning! It may be Monday, and I may have a lot of stuff to do this week, but I’m trying to stay positive! 🙂
Breakfast was divine:
My banana oatmeal contained:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 sliced banana
- Toppings: two tablespoons granola and blueberries
As you may know, we’re playing a fun game on Operation Beautiful called "Where in the USA is Monica?" Monica from Run, Eat, Repeat is taking a cross-country tour! She is driving from California to Maryland from July 10 to July 17, and along the way, she will be spreading the Operation Beautiful love! On Sunday, she hinted that she is "moving away from the ocean, but not the water!" and the next stop was once a winter Olympics site. If you guess Monica was in Salt Lake City, Utah — you were right!
- We can thank Theodore Roosevelt for recognizing the beauty of this land
- Monica is very Faithful to getting Operation Beautiful’s message to this place
Go to Operation Beautiful to see the rest of today’s notes. They are especially creative and fun today!

The Fresh Air Fund Success Story!
Last Friday, I wrote about the Fresh Air Fund, which raises money for children in New York City via the New York City Half Marathon. A reader named Betsy signed up for the program right away!
She wrote, "I’ve always admired Fresh Air Fund, and even applied for a job or two there back when I was first moving to New York. I am a huge advocate for giving everyone, especially low-income families, a chance to experience green space, and wrote part of my college thesis on that topic, so it’s mission is near and dear to my heart. When I saw your post, I gave it about 2.5 seconds of thinking, and clicked right though. Only a little more than a month to train for a half and raise $1000? When it’s for a wonderful cause like this, why the hell not! So, I’m in. And am especially excited. I’ve done loads of races before, but never for a charity, so this feels especially special. "
Have a great day!
