Today I need to thank a few people....
First Cassandra from Running for Three.
She was my Secret Santa this year!
Yesterday, I received this awesome t-shirt:
Yes I know what you are all thinking: She did spoil me!
I love love it!!!!
THANK YOU CASSANDRA!
Thank you Jill for leading the Secret Santa Exchange!
Next, we have Kim the running skirt expert!
Yesterday, I posted on her Facebook wall to ask what skirt she likes best. She is a tall gal like me and I am looking for a running skirt but not any running skirt. Her response was a whole POST on running skirts! Running Skirt Analysis !!! Now that is an answer! If you are looking to get a running skirt go visit her blog she knows a thing or 13 on the subject....(yep she has 13 skirts!)
Last but most definitely not least...I have the huge honor of being featured on the Another mother runner blog today. The Run like a Mother gals! You know the ones who wrote the yellow running bible for moms...
Last summer they started a series called WHY I RUN.
They invited mothers who are runners to write a personal essay on why they run.
Today my essay is up on their blog.
You can find it here.
Writing it was not difficult, I know why I run.
Sending it to Dimity made me a little nervous..I realized that if they actually post it, lots of people will READ it. Yesterday, I got a tweet from Dimity that said :"You are up next sister!" Now I was really nervous. They had really great runners featured during the summer..like Beth and Terzah..now me? I got up this morning, made coffee and turn on the lap top. In my inbox I had several messages from comments people had left on the post where my essay is. People are so kind. I am so thankful that they picked me for this and I am thankful to everyone who read my essay and left a comment. So if you are one of them I thank you. It is scary to put everything out there like that but I am glad I did it.
Ok now I got to to run 5 miles and I am way behind schedule and the Santa Ana winds are back so I got to head to the gym and have a date with the treadmil!
