The good: CHRISTMAS CAME EARLY FOR ME!!!!If you remember, a while back I posted my Christmas wish list. One of the items on the list was this little gem - a replacement for the one I dropped and shattered last year causing tears galore. I searched and searched and finally a local running store suggested that they could special order it from BaySix. I thanked them for the info and looked up BaySix when I got home. Couldn't find the ornament anywhere. Hum... so I contacted them, told them about my clumsiness, told them that I had shared the search with you all and that many of you would love one too. Within minutes, I received an email from Steve at BaySix telling me that he'd get a replacement in the mail for free. AWESOME! They have been amazingly wonderful and I was so excited when I got my package today and found that they sent me 2 of these ornaments. I must have been a good girl this year! :) If you want one of these ('cause you know we all want new PR's for Christmas), head over to BaySix. I'm hoping they added them back to their website, but if not, email them and I'm sure they can get one ordered for you!
The bad: Well it's not really bad, but I'm spent right now. I rented Toy Story 3 (great movie to those of you that haven't seen it!) this weekend and didn't get around to watching it. I hopped on the trainer yesterday but didn't feel like watching it - Shape magazine with Kelly Osbourne on the front made the hour go fast enough. Decided to run to the movie today. I couldn't take the dreadmill for more than 7 miles so I hopped on the spin bike and finished the rest of the movie. A hour and 35 minutes later and I'm toast right now. HA... I have a long way to go to get back to racing shape!
The ugly: Now onto the scrooge part of my post. Some people can be real poopheads. So Amanda at Run To The Finish (and not the poophead by the way) had an ongoing contest this past fall called the PR Challenge. The goal was to PR in a race and have that PR be the biggest in your group. I entered myself in the Marathon 4:15 to 4:23 group. My previous PR for a marathon was 4:21 and I thought that I had a chance to better that in Columbus. Fast forward to October and I did just that, PRing by about 12 minutes. Well I was up against three other girls and although only two of us kept to the challenge, I ended up winning the contest. My competition, Julie at A Case of the Runs (who isn't a poophead either and has a great blog... go check her out!) had a great marathon though... besides the train. Anyway, she sent me a note the other day telling me that she sent me a necklace for winning (one of the rules was that you send the winner a little something). Super sweet of her. I got the envelope in the mail today and some poophead had cut the side of the envelope and taken the necklace. I hope that person feels totally rotten when they wear that necklace and gets nothing but coal in their stocking! Really, who does that? BLAH... Thank you Julie though... I really appreciate the gesture!!!
Did you have a good, bad and ugly today?
