I love sewing and running. Also reading, skiing, rafting, etc. but the blogs i follow are fellow sewers and/or runners. So i want my blog to be about both.
To bring you all up to speed as to what has been happening recently:
I have been offered this amazing opportunity from Nike to be an ambassador. I have been offered entry into the Nike Women's Half marathon in San Francisco in October. This is an all expense paid trip, with training plan and gear for the journey.
At first I thought Nike was offering me a bib into this lottery race. Living to the left of nowhere, and already committed to the Chicago marathon the week before, I was going to decline or see if they could defer until next year, or see if i could do the half. I was unaware of the extent of the opportunity. Nikewomen responded that it would be fine to do the half--then they said my hotel, flight, food etc. would be paid. Wow--bonus!!! :)
Then there was the conference call with Marie Purvis (i was giddy and a bit of a star struck idiot). She is setting up plans for the four of us--also she is running the Chicago and the NW1/2 -- woot woot!
oh wait--it gets better:
yesterday a box showed up.
Inside was this wicked great backpack that is like the Mary Poppins Bag of BAGS. All of this is what was inside:
It had two pairs of sneakers: lunarswift3 and Nike Free 2, capris (awesome ones!) a fantastic sports bra, cool tank, great shorts, perfect hoodie, and the best rain jacket. I tested the coat today on a very wet four miles--it was great!
