The excitement builds.

I celebrated National Running Day by running 4 miles uphill on my treadmill this morning.  I was SUPER sweaty when I was done so you know I started the day a happy girl!  I spent the rest of the morning and afternoon at my son's school Field Day and then running errands.  When I finally arrived home, I felt ready for a nap until...I found 2 boxes on my front step! 

The first one was unexpected.  I had written Clif Bar to see if they would contribute to my virtual race but hadn't heard back so I was thrilled to see that they had sent a whole box of yummy Blueberry Crisp Clif Bars! Sweet!

The second box I had been waiting for.  I knew Nathan Sports was sending something but I wasn't sure what.  I saw this on the outside of the box and knew it was the one I had been waiting for.
I opened it to find-
Two Nathan Trail Mix hydration packs! Wow, oh, wow! I have one of these myself and I love it, so you guys are seriously getting lucky here. Amazing!  You can see me with my Trail Mix pack on during my 2nd Ragnar leg last year up in my blog header.  Oh, and here I am with my pack at the Salt Lake City Marathon. 
Ok, I guess you really can't see it too well here but I promise you it carried everything I needed that day and more AND it stayed right in place down lower on my hips without jostling around. Great product!  Whomever wins these will be tickled pink!
