The Hungry Runner Girl: Probably the best news I have gotten this year.

Tuesday, November 30, 2010

Probably the best news I have gotten this year.

Dramatic. Probably. Do I care. No.

Wednesday we went into the main running store for Utah County, "Runners Corner" to get some new shoes for my brother-in-law.

To make a long story short.....after talking to the owner for about an hour about marathons etc (his PR is 2:22, he won the St. George marathon in 1987 and he ran Boston 16 times) and my times etc. he asked if I wanted to join their running team.

I peed a little, cried a little and starting shaking uncontrollably.

I am joining their running team and will be sponsored by the store.  I will be entered into races (for free), train with elite runners, free coaching, free equipment, free nutritional guidance.

I can't even tell you how excited I am.

Next week I am sitting down with him for a few hours to go over nutrition and training plans for me.

I could die happy right now.  Now I just gotta get this knee back to normal:)

This is my happiest face to show you how ridiculously excited I am.

What brings out your happiest face?

-Looks like for me it is anything to do with running, Billy and graduating college.

Congratulations!!! That is amazing news! How freakin exciting - and you totally deserve it. I can only imagine how awesome training with such great support and training partners will be. Hopefully you will discuss in detail, often, once the knee is feelin' better! :)

You TOTALLY deserve it. You're 24 years old-barely even tapped into your potential! Unbelievably fast runner, GREAT work ethic and fantastic role model for other aspiring runners and women in general! I anticipate BIG things out of you! In fact, I wonder if I won't be seeing you on a running magazine cover at some point! I'm going to claim to "know" you if that's the case-ha!

Again, congrats-Very happy for you!
