Dear Emily, I had so much fun shopping and going out to lunch with you yesterday! I know I ate a lot of food, but with a menu like Seasons 52 had, I couldn’t pick just one small thing. Dear JCrew Outlet, enjoy my money. I’ll enjoy all the clothes I got yesterday. I’m so pleased with all of my purchases and know they were just what I needed to step up my spring and summer wardrobes. Dear Brooks Running Ravenna 4, I feel a lot of pressure to love you with all the #runhappy and Brooks love around the blogging world. You are very cushy, and when I ran with you on the treadmill yesterday I couldn’t decide if you were too cushy. I’ll be wearing you for my 12 miler tomorrow to keep debating. Dear Red Robin, I’ve never been to your restaurant before, and it seems like some people on Yelp would discourage it, but that salad deserves a letter all to itself. The Southwest Chicken Salad was amazing; the avocados were fresh, the jalapeno coins were delicious. Dear Social Security and DMV, thanks for having short waits! I changed my name finally!! It was one of my new year’s goals, and I did it!
Dear LOFT and Gap Outlets, thank you for having cute cotton dresses that will be perfect for summer and spring. Your prices were too good to pass up.
Dear IronGirl, I’m excited to be running your Half Marathon in Clearwater in April and your Sprint Triathlon in Clermont in May. Whether I own a bike by then or not, I’ll rent one to at least be able to compete in my first triathlon. I’m guessing I’ll catch another bug! Readers, if you want to participate, use the code LGITBW to register for the Half Marathon for 10% off (code expires April 1st, so register soon)! And use the code IGBIGWORLD for $10 off the Sprint Distance Tri Registration, and I’ll see you there! Dear Huma, thanks for sending me a few of your gels! I tried the apple cinnamon one yesterday while I ran on the treadmill to test it with my stomach, and it was delicious! I’m a convert. It tasted natural and fruity and like I was putting something good into my body. I’ve got a new go to energy gel. Dear Tim, sorry I’m apparently mean in my sleep. I don’t realize it. I’m excited we’re going to a fun Burger 21 outing on Sunday and a game night on Saturday! I love spending time with you, and it comes few and far between these days with all this MBA studying. Love you!
Dear Readers, I really really appreciate all your feedback on the posts this week about my race, my bike dilemma, and my plan to think positively in races going forward. It really means a lot to me to read your comments and tweets.
And if you go to Starbucks, don’t miss today’s Groupon!
What are your weekend plans?
Have you done any spring/summer shopping?
Disclosure: I am receiving comped entry into the IronGirl Clearwater Half Marathon and Clermont Sprint Triathlon, but I am not being paid to participate. All opinions are my own. I also received 4 single servings of the Huma gel to try out, but again there was no money that changed hands. That opinion is my own as well. I wouldn’t hesitate to speak honestly.
