So..in 24 hours my happy outlook post already needs to be changed.
It’s a pretty darn good change. In fact it is two changes.
The first being that my goal bikini shopping trip is moved up a week to the Easter Long Weekend. More motivation to avoid delicious chocolates can’t be all that bad, right? Right.
The second change…well….that one is far more noteworthy.
Really, truly, crazy noteworthy.
In fact, it is a lucky change.
I won something….I was at the gym, running a few miles before giving my buddy O his swimming lesson when Princess Lindsey texted me:
You can probably tell, I was thrown for a loop by her text initially…and then I remembered…I had recently entered a contest through a Canadian endurance athlete magazine called Impact Magazine. They do this thing called 60 Days of Free Race Entries and they give away entries into races across North America, with all entries from the 60 days going in for the grand prize draws. The grand prizes are entries to the Kelowna Marathon and to the Walt Disney World Marathon.
Day one was two free entries for the sold out runDisney Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler. I had entered, not expecting anything. I have entered into this 60 Days thing before at Princess Lindsey’s recommendation and came out empty handed, but figured I had nothing to lose…well…turns out it was the best thing I could’ve done because….
So now, Princess Lindsey and I are heading out to Orlando the first week in October to run The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So. Darn. Excited. Gah!
Many thanks to Impact Magazine for the prize and hope to see some other runDisney bloggers out in full force in October! 🙂
