I’m still in shock that I actually got picked to run for the Nuun Hood To Coast relay team!
Ahhhhh!!!!! I am so freaking excited, I wanted this so badly and I am stoked to be a part of the team. So many other awesome ladies got chosen as well and I can tell some great friendships will come out of this. What’s even more exciting is that this is my very 1st relay! Yep, my first one will be the mother of all relays, Hood To Coast. Awesome.
Come 2:30 yesterday, I could not focus on anything! I was just waiting and waiting for the minutes to tick by until 3pm hit. I of course freaked out once I saw my name! I had to quadruple check just to make sure I was reading it right I legitimately had a dream the night before that I had made it and I had found out in the middle of the night and woke Derek up to tell him. I know it’s corny, but dreams do come true.
This may not seem like a big deal to some, but it’s a huge deal in my opinion. I am running Hood to Coast representing Nuun!!! Sounds amazing!!!!! Sorry, I know I am yelling a lot and freaking out, but seriously this is going to be some pretty epic shit. I cannot wait for August 24th! Seattle, here I come!!!
I am forever grateful and appreciative, so thank you Nuun, I am unbelievably excited to have this opportunity!!!!
Also, today was the ING NYC Marathon opening day! Anyone get picked? I’m already IN since I did the 9 +1 last year for guaranteed entry. I know it’s super hard to get picked through the lottery, so I am wondering who actually go in?
It sure is going to be a fantastic year of running!
Now only if I my back would hurry up and get better so I can do some run-celebrating.
