Here's Michael getting psyched up for this challenge!
He's not told me he's planning on doing it again next year. I think I'll wait another day or two until I'm sure all the kinks are out and then pose the question to him! Ha! He was smart and scheduled a sports massage for himself yesterday - which he thoroughly enjoyed and totally deserved! Way to go honey!!
Oh yeah, and then there was this! While picking up his race packet at Fleet Feet in Carrboro last Friday, Michael decided to buy 4 $5.00 tickets for the drawing they were having race day for the Garmin 405 Forerunner runners watch (a $350.00 value). For those of you who don't know, this watch is a virtual GPS on your wrist! It opens up a whole new world for runners. You simply take off running and the watch monitors everything for you; your distance, your pace, your heart rate - everything. You even have a virtual running buddy to keep you honest! Mikey was fortunate enough to get one of these babies for Christmas but he thought, what the heck, I'll buy a couple tickets - it's for a good cause, the upkeep of Little River Park.
The only stipulation on race day for the drawing was that the winner had to be there to claim the prize. As the crowd began to dwindle we got more excited - better chances of winning! They pulled out the knit cap, the announcer said "and the winner is Mike...(insert long pause here)...Mineer"! I think they heard us yell back in Chatham County!! Me especially because I knew that baby was mine since big daddy already his!! Yes! All mine! Isn't my hubby the best? And he told the group that I was getting the watch because he'd gotten his already for Christmas. Of course, there was the collective "AWE"!
A great day...a really great day.
My Garmin had its maiden voyage this past Sunday. I L-O-V-E it!!!
