So yesterday I get the usual email from Active asking me to rate my last race. I always try to make an effort to leave a comment, if I have something negative to say I try to find something positive to go with it. I also read all the comments others make to see if I am the only one who thinks the way I do...so anyway I went over the website to leave my comment and read the comments others had left...A LOT OF NEGATIVE BS. I understand that not everyone will be 100% happy in any given situation or event but people are complaining about things like the weather (really??????) and that Panera Bread ran out of eggs (it was NOT the Panera bread race!). The thing that people are complaining the most about is the course and I don't get it. They had a website where we could see the map of the course, it was clear that the runners doing the 10k would run 2 loops of the 5k course. It was on the map and it was in the text with the info for the race. They knew it would be a 2-loop race so why are they complaining? We got an ornament instead of a medal...I thought it was great: it was a Holiday race! This was also in the info on the website..people are complaining about that also..."would have been nice to get a medal!" I guess they should change the request to "send us your complains" instead of your comments...! I just don't like people who complain about something they knew they would get. When I order a coffee at Starbucks I don't complain it is not lemonade when I get my cup!!!.. Yes it was a loop with one u-turn in it, big woop...it was in the info!! They had free massage and lots of food and drinks for the runners, lots of easy parking, 4 water stations on a 10k AND SANTA WAS THERE! COME ON NOW!!
OK I feel better now.
Went to the gym and ran the 4.5 miles that I was supposed to run...felt a little soar but not too bad...took a couple miles to feel OK.
I won a giveaway!!! A Itune gift card! That makes me happy! :)
*** I just saw that Abbi tagged me....will be back with that later...time for motherhood duties now!!!***
