Wednesday night was the best evening of my whole week. That’s when I received the email that I had been matched.
I signed up with the IR4 organization at the tail end of last year after seeing so many of my running friends build beautiful relationships with their buddies. Every week the wait list would be updated and I would check to see where my name was and wonder who I would be lucky enough to be matched up with.
Well I have my match and let me just tell you guys…she’s PRECIOUS. Obviously I don’t want to give out any details here without her family’s permission, but I am so excited to dedicate my miles to Meadow. Seriously, could her name be any cuter?? Betty and I are gearing up to run our first race for her tomorrow morning at The Color Run!
If you aren’t familiar with IR4 and want to get involved, I encourage you to check out their site and watch the video there. It’s truly life changing!
And then there was the day I got cheese mail.
This has got to be one of my favorite things about my Fit Foodie involvement. Sartori makes some of the most amazing cheese on the planet and because they are a sponsor of the Fit Foodie 5K Weekend, they have generously provided a beautiful spread of cheeses plus some other fun goodies to their Ambassadors. The merlot (second from the right) is probably the best cheese I’ve ever had in my life. I feel like I should have a fancy party and invite you all to it.
Then just when I thought that my week couldn’t get any more awesome there was more to come.
You’ve probably heard me rave about my Lily Trotters before. I was lucky enough to learn about this awesome local business from one of my friends and since then they have become my go-to compression socks. I wore them in New Jersey and got a handful of compliments from other runners while out on the course! And I also got to hang with my sock twin that weekend:
I LOVE this girl!
Now I don’t want to say too much about what I have coming up—mostly because I have no idea if I’m even allowed to talk about it yet—but let’s just say that I will be working with Lily Trotters on something in the very near future. I’m over the moon excited and I can’t wait to share it with you guys!
Is anyone else racing this weekend? Do you have an IR4 buddy? What is your favorite kind of cheese? (Wanna come over and help me eat all this cheese!?)
I hope that everyone has a WONDERFUL holiday weekend!
