A few weeks ago the Sisterhood had a give-away for this race. We had to leave a comment, tweet, facebook, etc and tell about the reasons we want to win. I decided that if I won this race package I could finally go meet Lisa and Christy in Austin. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to me. I got excited and asked hubby about it. He said ok, so I left the comment and walked away all the while hoping and praying that I would be picked! Austin is just a few measley hours from here and I would get to meet 2 wonderful women who have helped me greatly over the past 2 years!
But, before the winner was chosen some "bad stuff" happened and it didn't look like I would be able to go whether I won or not. I emailed the ladies and told them to pull me from the contest. Apparently, Lisa didn't get the memo (and I'm glad she didn't now!!) and I was chosen as the winner for the race packet . I told hubby that was chosen and he said "um, ok I guess as long as you don't have to spend money on hotel you can go ahead and go!" I went from sad, depressed to excited and happy in one swift move. I figured I could stay with someone, right??!! Turns out my options for staying with someone were knocked out of the water. So I had a decision to make. I could go ahead and tell Lisa and Christy I am doing the race or tell them I'm not doing the race.
So...Sunday afternoon in the middle of a pretty crappy, emotional run I decided I was gonna do this. I'm gonna take my chances...do my best with preparing for the race in the 4 weeks I have before it happens and figure out where I'm gonna sleep later!! I emailed Lisa and told her it was a go...This afternoon she sent me the promo code for the race and I just finished signing up!! I am officially signed up for my next 5K so there is no turning back now!! I figure I probably won't be able to run the entire 5K yet, but I will do my best and that's all I can ask of myself. Besides I'm gonna have a great time with Lisa and Christy and I'm sure they will make the weekend worth it!!
I can't wait!!! See you guys on April 16th!! Whoohooo!!
