Relay races and Tiffany & Co. are a girl’s best friend
This pretty much has been the BEST week EVER!
Tuesday NUUN announced their relay teams for the 2012 Hood to Coast and I was selected! I’m not going to lie I just sat at my desk staring at my computer screen, first in disbelief and then and complete giddiness (is that even a word?).
I’m sure my intern thought I was insane. She thought I was even more insane when I tried to explain to her the reason for all my giddiness. I think she still thinks I’m insane.
You might remember my entry, I’ve grown-up at this race. My dad’s run on a bunch of teams, my mom has cooked raisin bread, oatmeal cookies and even served as a van driver in our faithful two-tone brown van. My brothers and I have spent hours playing on the beach in Pacific City and Seaside Oregon waiting for my dad to finish.
I was lucky enough to run my first HTC with my dad. I ran leg 3 and got to hand off to my dad who was running leg 4 (clearly because 4 follows 3).
It was a blast and I was hooked. It was also my first race in 8 or 9 years and the reason I’m still racing today.
Our team decided not to enter the following year so I answered a “want ad” on the HTC website and started my stint as a Pink Lady.
But last year we hit a little bump in the road…
As hard as 2011 was I still just wasn’t ready to quit this race… and luckily NUUN has given me a chance to run it again. And yes I am counting the days. And yes I still can’t believe it!!!
And as if that wasn’t enough (and trust me it really was enough)… I topped off the week with a little Tiffany & Co. news…
I awoke to this image in my mailbox…
… yep… I’m heading to SFO in October!
And I get a chance to earn another one of these…
… relays races and Tiffany & Co. really are a girls best friend.
Ever. (Okay maybe not ever but it’s pretty close to the top of my list :))
