I am finally somebody!

This weekend, i got my welcome kit from Alyse and Jamie, making my status as a Sweat Pink Ambassador official!  I got this sweet tank top, and a bunch of shoe laces to distribute to all my running buddies!  They even have a bio for me on their website, as well as all the other Sweat Pink ladies!  If you were ever curios about the inner workings of my mind, click Here.
I totally wore the tank all day on sunday while i went to potbellys and then proceeded to nap on the couch all afternoon did healthy things.  It was a bit chilly out, so i wore a cardigan over it, and Matt pointed out that when you wear a sweater over the tank, it crops the text just so:
Eat Pi.  Now there is a slogan i can stand behind!
My favorite part by far was a hand written note from Jamie and Alyse welcoming me as an ambassador, and apparently accusing me of having a sense of humor!  Wha????  ME??? I am shocked, baffled, stunned, and flattered.  I actually do put a fair amount of time into the blog, so its nice to think that someone was entertained by it, if only for a second.
It was a huge boost, because i have been feeling very unappreciated lately both at home and at work, so this just made me feel good,  so i will stop my whining and keep being my fabulous self (although why anyone would consider me a role model is beyond me.  Don't get drunk and sign up for marathons kids.  Just don't.)
Aside from this note, i also got a little acknowledgement from home on how hard i work.  Since Matt has been out of work, I yelled at him to do more around the house so i could have a break.  I won't go into details (because most of them are being saved for FWP tomorrow, but he realized that working all day, running, blogging, doing all the laundry, cooking, etc is a LOT harder than it looks.)


So, as a sweat pink ambassador, it's my job to encourage you to get moving, look awesome, and just do the best that YOU can.  I would say lead by example as well, but seriously, i just ate jelly beans for breakfast....do as i say, not as i do.


And, if anyone want's some awesome hot pink shoe laces, all you have to do is run with me :) (and maybe tell me i am awesome....)

  2. I wrote about getting my fun stuff over the weekend today too! It totally brightened my Saturday to get my Sweat Pink tank!

    If it means anything, I appreciate you and I also think that you are pretty awesome. Anyone who eats "pi" is stellar in my books! Now if I only had some "pi" right now.... :-)

    2. SWEET! I am out of town starting Thursday until May 1, when I start my new job. Can we put it off a bit? I have a wingman who will refuse to run a block.. ;)

      Do you work downtown? I would be willing to run a few blocks over lunch. I am SLOW though..You could run and I will catch up to you when you stop to stretch..

      geesh..I really must want those laces!
