Shirt that I won from One More Mile

Better late than never.

A couple of weeks ago I won a giveaway on Shelly's blog - It's Just One Foot in Front of the Other. The shirt arrived and I had promised pictures - but just got around to it today. The shirt was from One More Mile and I love it. I ran 3 miles this morning with Sophie and got warm enough that I took my jacket off for a while. I didn't run into anyone - but if I had - I know they would have LOVED it also. In case you can't read the message - I know - not the best pic's.

The front says
Sorry, I've Got to Run
(with my Dog)

and the back says

Leash and Collar . . . $14.95
Running Shoes . . . $90.00
Running with my Best Friend . . . Priceless

My husband and I bought snowshoes this afternoon and we just got back from a hike through the woods with the dog. It was beautiful. We found some public DNR land near Token Creek -- which is a little stream that we kayak down in the summer. The land is snow covered and with the freezing temps around here - it is very crunchy. It is easy to break through the snow - so walking in snowshoes makes it easier. This was our first time using snowshoes . . . pretty fun. A couple of times I nearly tripped because I stepped on the outside edge of one of the shoes with my other shoe. It takes a little getting use to - but I liked it. We loved the land - no one was out there and Sophie could come. The land is very marshy - so it might be too wet to walk on during the spring and even into the summer - winter just might be the only time to comfortably walk around - but we will have to give it a try again in the summer. I am realizing as I am writing this - that I should have taken my camera. ;-(



  1. Too cute. I have a pug... so no running long ditances with her.

  2. Snowshoeing is a good way to exercise, while enjoying the scenery. BTW, what did you decide to do about your Colorado trip (stay and ski or come home?) :) The stay for less time sounds like the best alternative to me.

    BTW check out my blog, I've tagged you ;)

  3. Anne - it will depend on the airline cost to change my return trip. Since it was booked for work - I will need to check with the travel department at work tomorrow.

    I do think I will go and ski. Maybe I will shorten it - or maybe not. I will make my decision tomorrow.

  4. Yeah Linda! I love your shirt!! Thanks for the link in your post.

    I would love love love snowshoeing! Wait a minute...maybe that is what my attempted trail run should have been called. heeheehee ;-)

    Have an amazing week! *hugs*

  5. CUTE shirt and glad you are getting some use out of it!

  6. Awesome...we're so proud of you to have beat the enemy & run with your friend! I guess I didn't realize you had a dog until I saw you running yesterday (or was it the day before?) I was being lazy driving in my Jeep. Love the shirt, love the cause, glad you are the champion!!!

  7. p.s. That was me (anonymous)..not sure why my name didn't show up..will try again!

  8. Thanks Lisa - Sophie (our golden ) is almost 2 years old . . . I got her to help me get through the next couple of years with Joe graduating from college and Charlie from high school. I am taking a little break from packing - heading to Denver for a conference and then up to Vail to ski and relax for 4 days. See ya!!!
