Unfortunately, each time was a big disappointment. Nothing. Every day in August, I would walk out thinking that this was the day. I would finally hold my awesome, spectacular medal in my hand that would proclaim me a double marathon goddess... and the mailbox gave me nothing.
I lost hope. I slipped into despondency and cursed the Competitor Group's name.
And then, as I opened my mailbox today, I saw a chunky, yellow padded envelope between the Penny Saver and advertisements from Toyota. Could it be?
I tore open the envelope and pulled out a tiny scrap of paper:
Then, I saw it:
Yes, I did "rock" 52.4 miles this year. I placed the medal immediately over my head and wore it around my neck until Josh could come home and take my picture.
I love getting running bling! What can I run next and what will they give me? :-)
