Great prizes!

Erica said...

I am sooooo stoked!!! Mel I will draw us as stick figures any day of the week...hey it makes me look thin!

Amanda said...

YAY Thanks!!

MJ said...

Wow!!!! I'm shocked to see my name!! I'm definitely proud of myself for inspiring my niece to run and teaching her that you can run for a reason...like raising money to help find a cure for cancer! However, I think the biggest inspiration is you girl. You inspired all of us to get out there and move..with a purpose! You're awesome, amazing, super, and all of the words next to those in the thesaurus lol. (Off to email my addy!!)

Congratulations to all the winners. I had a great time running in my first virtual race and Mel was a great race director - except she didn't tell me there was a beer garden!!!!

As a women diagnosed with breast cancer 5 years ago - I would like to thank everyone who made a donation supporting breast cancer research because . . . we are all in this together . . . . and . . . cancer sucks.

Congrats to all the winners!!!! Awesome prizes :) I'm glad I was able to participate. I can't wait until the next virtual race.

Alisa said...

congrats to your winners.

Re: your comment about running and being sick. If I had 18 miles on my schedule I would have skipped it but since it was just a trainer ride and brick run I did it--can't say I feel worse or better which is good I guess.

MCM Mama said...

Woohoo! I never win! I'm so excited to win that hat 'cause I never run outside without some kind of hat on!

Thanks, Mel!

Croughwell said...

Wow! Can't believe I won! This is my second that I have won! I am very patient about waiting for the prize. Just ask Heather from Run Faster Mommy :).
