Who Doesn't Like Mail?
The very awesome Tricia and I have been chatting a lot lately. Perhaps because we share a coach (Adam) and we like to talk about his
teddy bear coaching techniques. We've also picked a few races that we plan to share here in the near future. Woot! But next on her plate is the amazing Hood-to-Coast Relay. Like many other bloggers (not me!), she will be running on NUUN's all female-blogger relay team.
I know at times you all think *I'm* crazy, but Tricia picked leg 1 at HTC. It's 5.6 miles with a 2000 ft drop. And then of course she has to somehow recover and do 2 more legs. I suggested she pack her foam roller instead of a sleeping bag. But pretty sure that wouldn't fit in her suitcase. I then suggested the Stick, which she had already been considering. I told her I had one that I didn't really use, and then came up with the idea that we could do a little surprise swap with stuff we already had lying around.
I ended up cheating a little bit... because I'm evil like that... but you can see her goodies HERE (and you need to click, if only to see a photo of her sweet boy holding the package).
My box actually arrived first...
Look at all the loot!!! It was like Christmas. Loving every bit of it. Right after I opened the box, the foot massager went under my desk so I could roll while I tweeted (@RacingItOff) to her (@TriciaRunning) about the arrival of the treats.
Can you see all the goodies? GU Chomps and Brew (which was a giggle because I sent her the same thing), reuseable bags, Bondi Band (Sweat Like a Man - hilarious!), some awesome shirts (really loving the Nike "There is no finish line" shirt!), electrolytes galore (EFS and NUUN - of course), Yankz laces (really interested to try these), and a couple of books that I cannot wait to dig into (especially Meb's!).
This was like Runner Wonderland. I think we might have to put this whole surprise exchange idea into action more often. I loved getting different goodies! Of course, seriously, who doesn't love mail??? The best part of the deal... Tricia thinks she got the best package, but I'm pretty sure I did.
