2 Great Things!!!

1st great thing-
I am one of the newest employees of Big Dog Running Company!!!! I am super excited. Talk about total runner nerd out. I can't wait to learn more about all the shoes and gear we offer and hang out with other run nerds all day!!! Could I use any more exclamation points....The other great thing about great thing number one is that I will get a paycheck- which was not really the original reason I applied but now that the government is shutdown it is not really clear whether or not the Army is getting paid.....so that is not great. Of course I will have to resist using my entire paycheck on running gear.....tricky, very tricky.

2nd great thing-
I won a free marathon entry from Yo Momma Runs for the Seven Bridget Marathon in Chattanooga Tennessee.

The only slight issue is that it is a week after Chicago. So like any rational person I booked a hotel room with the idea that I am gonna give it a go. Of course I can always drop to a shorter distance if needed. This marathon was featured in Runner's World which is pretty exciting



Countdown to Chicago: 5 days

  1. I don't know if i could handle working at a running store, there goes my paycheck!
    I've heard a lot of great things about that race in Chattanooga. I was debating on doing it this year, but I'm enjoying my non racing weekends so I think it will be next year for me

  3. Yay again on winning! I can give you my top secret (read: not at all) herbal trick for recovery/flushing lactic acid. I used it last time I did back-to-back races and at the stage races. Let me know if you want to give it a shot. And yay for jobs! They come in handy with eating and stuff.
