We have a winnneeerrr

I never win anything! I can't think of once in my life that I have won a contest, aside from when I was in middle school and I won 2 tickets to an Ozzy Osbourne concert (no more tears tour), my sister couldn't take me so my mom did. But that's another story. Anyway, last night I went to a ladies night at a local running store (Vertical Runner) and I won a free pair of Brooks Cascadia trail shoes. Woohooo. These shoes are $100. I was so happy I did a little dance. And I got my body fat tested last night and it was really low. So low that I don't even believe the lady. But seeing the number sure made me feel good. I am hanging around 128-129, I managed to keep a little of the stomach bug weight off. Hoorah.

Speaking of running shoes. Aside from my weekend run I haven't been very good at getting the miles in. I am going to try to up the weekly mileage next week, I have a half in 2 months. A hard hilly trail half. I don't want to die in the snow out there. I'm also signing up for the Lexington KY half mary (near my hometown) in March and the Cleveland half in May. That should keep me motivated through the winter. I hope.

That's a nice prize. Isn't it surreal when they actually call your name/number? Congrats!
