You guys are THE BEST

Thank you SO much for all of your comments signatures on yesterday's post petition. Hubby was amused when he read it and agreed to buy me my new toy if I get 50 comments (probably thinking it wouldn't happen). Well, would you look at that! I have 46 already! I just need 4 more, guys!

To thank you all for your awesome support, I'm going to make a very special custom batch of my famous power bars and ship them to one of you. Just leave a comment on this post if you'd like to enter (and of course, on yesterday's post if you haven't already). I'll draw the winner tomorrow night!

Speaking of power bars, Lil Runner was able to raise $225 for charity by auctioning off not one, but TWO batches through her virtual bake sale. Thanks to everyone who participated and especially to the winners!

(Looks like I'll be spending some time in the kitchen this weekend!)

Enter me....well unless it is too expensive to ship to the US.. I love to taste the baking of those MUCH more talented than myself.

So excited for you and your new watch.

Question...did you drop your first Garmin?? Or just wear it enough that it broke?? How long have you had it?

sneakersister said...

So cool! I'm glad your husband has a sense of humor. Enjoy your new toy.

You need the new Garmin. I hope this helps you get the 50 responses you need. Best of luck!

YOU rock!!! and 150 was one batch and 75 for the other!!! that's 225 you personally raised for me. THANK YOU so much!!!

Fair Weather Runner said...

you are cracking me up with these posts. so something i would do! enter me for the contest, but like with tall mom, if the shipping to the US is ridiculous, don't do it! good luck... i KNOW you'll get that new toy! YAYAY!

LOL, I love that you'll have "new bling" on your wrist!!! As if the petition signatures weren't enough--all your awesome running stories and inspiration to bloggers such as myself deserves new bling!
