Join me at the Virtual Run for Jess 5K


For several years, Mrs. Running Griffin and I have participated in the Run for Jess 5K in East Bridgewater on Labor Day weekend. This year, the race is going virtual due to COVID and we hope you will consider joining us for this virtual race raising funds for important causes.

The Jessica C. Thurston Memorial Foundation was founded in memory of Jessica Thurston who passed away from breast cancer at a young age.

With Jess in mind, the JCTMF strives to make a difference in the battle with breast cancer in hopes that one day there will be a cure!  Since the fund was established, in 2014, they have been able to make a yearly gift to Massachusetts General Hospital to directly support breast cancer research.  In addition, they also give out an annual high school scholarship and provide assistance to the local community throughout the year.  The foundation plans to keep their commitments this year and increase charitable giving to the Bridgewater area communities to those who have been directly affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.

The virtual Run for Jess 5K is completely free but race organizers are asking for a donation if you are able to make one. If you donate $20 you will be eligible for a race tee-shirt if you sign up soon!

Join me for the virtual edition of the Dan Cavanagh Memorial Running Over MSA 5K in support of The Multiple System Atrophy Coalition! As many of you know, my father is currently battling MSA and here’s a great opportunity to join a virtual 5K in support of a great cause!

100% of all race proceeds will go directly to The MSA Coalition and the race that takes place in Chatsworth, Illinois is featuring a virtual 5K this year that affords runners across the country with the opportunity to join in the cause and tackle a 5K course of their own. Virtual runners will be shipped a race tee-shirt and will be able to submit their times and photos on the race’s social media accounts.

He was a lifetime member of Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church and was also a member of the Knights of Columbus, the Sons of the American Legion, and Pheasants Forever – Livingston County.

Dan passed away from Multiple System Atrophy on October 11th, 2015, at the age of 65.

Fuel Up with Drink Wholesome


Let’s be honest. We have all tried downing some protein drinks that require holding the nose, having a loved one strap you to a table so as to not squirm or can only be drank by shotgunning the drink like a Natty Light in undergrad with often the same queasy after effects.

Thankfully we don’t need to suffer any longer! Drink Wholesome is a new brand in market and is putting out ridiculously good products that both taste amazing and provides strong results. Drink Wholesome is created with real ingredients you can read right on the packaging and is free of any additives or fillers you have no idea what they are.

I have tried the Mocha flavor which is quite good but the PB Coconut is a whole different level. Made with egg whites, oats, peanuts, coconut, maple sugar, sea salt and monk fruit the PB Coconut protein powder provides a ridiculously delicous flavor profile that is tough to put down. I mix the protein with milk and ice and blend for a cool, refreshing shake post-runs that is flavorful and helps aid recovery. Try tossing in a couple local strawberries for some added flavor and you have yourself a real treat!

Because Drink Wholesome is all natural, you won’t be left with that bloated and sluggish feeling that other protein shakes deliver. The post-run shake definitely will fill you up with the fuel needed but does so in a way that is effective and not offensive.

Runners can request free samples of Drink Wholesome shipped to them (just need to cover the postage) so there is no reason not to check out these great products for yourself! Click here to request your free samples.

Put away the fillers. Dump the junk in the garbage. Drink Wholesome and get results!
