I won - I won - oh did I mention I won

I entered a give away on Shelly's blog - It's Just One Foot in Front of the Other . . . great blog . . . and I won . . . yes I won. I get to select an item from One More Mile's website! They have very clever shirts and running apparel. I am very excited - first give away I entered. It must be a sign - 2010 is going to be a good year.

Will it be one of these . .

OR - one of the other designs . . . I will make sure that I take a picture of what I select.

EXERCISE: As far as exercise - spent 30 minutes on the Elliptical machine after work. The time went by really fast. Three of us reserved the machines at the company's fitness center at 5:00. I was on the Elliptical and my friends, Kelly and Nikki were on the treadmills. Time does go pretty fast with friends. It is kind of funny - I am a solo runner, except for my dog, Sophie. I really like to use my running time as "my time" and simply let my mind wonder. I cherish the alone time, - but the treadmill (dreadmill) or elliptical are so boring.

PEACE - and Thanks to Shelly


  1. Yeah! Congrats Linda! We will be looking forward to some stylish photos of you sporting your new One More Mile gear soon!

    On the exercise front, I agree with the solo running. I use that time to clear my mind. When my son goes I will be doing almost all my runs with my littlest. I hope I can still find that centered place. I know I will find a way. It always works out.
    Lucky you have friends to pass the dreadmill time with!

  2. So great that you won!! I love to win Giveaways

  3. they do have the most adorable shirts...seriously I bought one in vegas for my marathon that said running is a mental sport and we're all insane!

    feel better!
