Surprise in the Mail!

19 Feb

I’ve been in contact with Keira, who is a partner with the Griffith Park Half Marathon and 10k trail run in California, for a few weeks. If you remember, the race took place back in November and because of money issues and delays in getting my flight tickets I wasn’t able to go. I won a free entry into the race a few months prior so it wasn’t that big of a deal that I couldn’t make it but it was disappointing just because I’ve never had to pull out of a race before (oh right, except for the triathlon I couldn’t do because I was on crutches due to a broken ankle).

So I emailed Keira asking about the race shirts and if there was a way I could still receive mine even though I couldn’t attend the run. Well last week I got it in the mail just before I left for Louisiana! What a great surprise!! Here’s the best part too.. when I signed up for the run I had originally signed up to receive a small shirt so when I emailed her I reminded Keira of that but said if they had run out of small shirts I would take a medium and be ok with that. What I received in the mail was a small 10k trail run shirt (the 10k race was the same weekend as the half. I debated signing up for that as well but decided against it since this was going to be my first trail run and I didn’t want to over do myself). BUT on top of getting a small 10k shirt I ALSO got a medium half marathon shirt!!! I GOT TWO SHIRTS!! I’m guessing it’s probably because they ran out of small half marathon shirts but she wanted to make sure I got a small shirt since that’s what I ordered.

I’m very sad that I got to miss out on this race but hopefully one day I can get to California and run it! What I love most about these shirts is that INKnBURN Endurance apparel did the race tech shirts and they did an amazing job! These shirts are very light weight as well!

I hope to break in to one of them this week as I continue my training for my half in Washington DC in 25 days!
