First things first, Congrats Elle! She is the winner of my ENERGYbits contest. Thanks to everyone for participating. If you'd still like a chance to try some, please check out Tina's giveaway!
It's been a lucky week! Due to a crazy coincidences, I actually won Elle's ENERGYbits giveaway last week (I promise nothing was rigged, everything was done through Rafflecopter), so now I can keep them in the routine, until I can buy some more! YaY! Karen had a Snowed in giveaway for a SmartWool winter headband that I won as well. I adore their running socks, so I think a warm headband for winter training would rock. Now I'm completely convinced that spot in my neighborhood (pictured above) really IS good luck. I think I should buy a lottery ticket.
Speaking of lottery tickets: The NYC Half drawing is today. Sending some good luck your way if you're in the drawing (please let me know if you get in!)! I have (non-complimentary) automatic entry for volunteering this year, so I'm in! I was debating heavily on whether I run this race or not, but after deciding The Glass Slipper Challenge would be for fun, I like that I can run this one for time (and I better! They have a strict time limit). . . who knows? Maybe even PR! This is my anniversary race. But let's not get ahead of ourselves. I need to actually DO speed/hill work, instead of just think about it.
Waivers and Corral placements went up the runDisney website yesterday. Sadly, no corral assignments for the 5k or the 10k. Now I know what the 5k runners usually feel like! Anyone else think it's funny that WDW Marathon weekend is the only weekend where running a marathon isn't the most insane thing happening? I'm not sure how I'd feel about that if it were my first race of the distance, but I digress. Just because we aren't running an insane amount of miles, does not mean we shouldn't get the same treatment! All runners are rockstars in my eyes.
With the exciting energy in the air, I think I've safely settled on a costume (bonus: I already own everything I need!). If you follow me on Pintrest, I'm sure you have a pretty good idea who it is.
What's your favorite thing you've ever won?
