Half Marathon Contest

For the month of January I participated in a Half Marathon contest put on by Pat.  For my efforts I won a gift pack of Penguin Sportswash single use packets and Powerbar Powerblasts.  I had been really wanting to try the Powerblasts and I have to admit I was disappointed in them.  They were larger than I had anticipated making them rather difficult to chew when I was taste testing.  I was afraid to even try them on the run.  I decided I am going to stick to my shot bloks and they haven’t failed me yet.  The sportswash packets really came in handy for my trip to WDW last week since I had 3 races and 2 training runs I knew I was going to need to do laundry several times while down there.  They really were a life saver or at the very least a nose saver.

Pat won the prize I offerred of the Disney collectors pin for the WDW Marathon weekend.  In addition I threw in a Circle of Life 5K pin as a surprise as I shipped it.  No here is where things get embarrassing.  I participated in one of Pat’s last challenges which was for the Biggest Loser 2 or 3 seasons ago.  Pat won and I had purchased MD items to send him then the proceeded to sit in the box for…I don’t even know how long.  I ended up having to replace the items because they had expired.  So as I packed up the pins I threw in the MD items I had intended to send before.  What better way to represent MD than with McCormick spices including our beloved Old Bay.  The Old Bay I got from BJs so it was an industrial size box of Old Bay, lol.

Even this time I didn’t get to ship the items when I had wanted to.  I had been working overtime to try to make sure I had everything I wanted to have done at work done before I flew to FL.  Unfortunately the Saturday I planned to ship the package I ended up at the hospital helping to care for my great aunt as she passed away (RIP Aunt Josie – we love you).  I was finally able to ship the items just before I left, so they should be safely in Pat’s hands now. 

Next up in the blogging department will be the ESPN 5K, but that is for another time…now I need to get ready for work.

    I didn’t think they would survive shipping very well. :/

    I did get the stuff. Love the pins. I’ll post pictures on my blog.

    Haven’t tried the Old Bay yet. But, my wife is a great cook, so we will use it all.
