The Hungry Runner Girl: I have never been so happy in my life.

Saturday, February 12, 2011

I have never been so happy in my life.

I came home from the gym to find my early birthday present.

IMG_4054.JPG

The Nordic Track C900

I screamed, I cried, I jumped around.  I feel numb I am so excited.

He completely surprised me.  Billy has been selling a lot of his stuff on ebay.....I was very suspicious about this and now I know why he was selling his stuff.  He did whatever it took to get me my ultimate dream machine.

I love you Billy, thank you.

Features include:

Speakers for your ipod/computer (that go REALLY loud)

A built in fan

IFIT compatible (allows you to run any course you want....I will be running Boston's course on Friday, while watching the course on your computer through google maps).  Basically, the treadmill is connected to the internet.

Incline up to 15% and up to 12 MPH

20 built-in hill/speed workouts and I can design whatever workout I want on my computer to program into the treadmill.   It keeps track of all of your workouts and you can compete with other people that have the same type of treadmill.

Quadflex cushioning.

He also put up pictures in frames around my running corner of my favorite athletes (think Kara) at the Boston Marathon and has other pictures to go up for other big marathons I am wanting to do after Boston.  Inspiring.

My mom came over to check it out and then took us for ice cream.  Ice cream for lunch is the best.

IMG_4051.jpg

I don't think today could get any better.  Off to run on MY NEW TREADMILL.

I counted and it is only 4 steps from my bed.  It doesn't get better than that folks.

Also, that first photo may just have me smiling for the rest of the week.

And in honor of your birthday...a short story.

Once upon a time, long ago, there was a world without Janae. It was a good world, but somewhat sad and lonely - particularly for swedish fish and Nike tempos. The nike tempos cried themselves to sleep, asking, "Who will wear me?? I'm so alone." But hark! What light from window breaks! Janae was born! Swedish fish and Nike tempos rejoiced! And the world was a better place.

Happy birthday, Janae! Your existence is worthy of great celebration =)

Oh Billy. I love you. Mostly because I love Janae - yeah, maybe we've never met in real life...
But you are so good to her, and it makes me so happy :-)
I'm still in love with her though. You might be thinking, "wait a second..but you're married.." It doesn't make a difference in the world :-)
Got your elliptical in the mail bestie :-P
AAAH!! IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!

Wow! What an awesome gift! My treadmill has about a 5% incline, no heart rate monitor, no calories burned calculator, no mile tracker, no speed tracker. Its practically the great grandpa of treadmills!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JANAE!!!

I think that is the same treadmill that I got last year! We can be treadmill twins. What an amazing gift! It's so wonderful when someone knows you so well and gives you that perfect gift. I love how Billy even hooked you up with motivational pictures. And I think he's telling you he wants you closer to home in the morning. So cute. This is wonderful!! I'm so excited for you!!!

I just got my own treadmill last month. Bought it with a combo of my birthday money, Christmas money, life savings. I don't know how I existed without it! It's right up there with the Garmin in the how-did-I-run-without-this category!

Having your own TM is going to change your life!

This is such a cool present, you won't even need to go to the gym, you could get a bit more cuddle time with Billy in the mornings.

Very cool present, such a lucky girl and you totally deserve it.

Holy cow!!! This is amazing! That has got to be the perfect gift for you! :) So jealous!!! happy Birthday!

i don't know if i am more jealous of the treadmill or billy. FINE. it's billy. you would make some serious dough if you cloned him. but that would be weird.

anyway, CONGRATULATIONS!

i feel like i know you because i obsessively check my google reader to see if you've posted - so i will make the educated assumption that you 10000000% deserve both billy and the treadmill. but i am still jealous.

 
At February 13, 2011 at 7:13 PM , Anonymous Elizabeth said...

I have now read your entire blog like a big ole stalker (harmless of course) and I'm officially JEALOUS of your treadmill. Gah. If your husband wants to buy another one (ya know, just in case) I'm totally open to accepting. :)

Your stamina is amazing and you totally inspire me. I ran my third half marathon today (slow, but I did it) in roughly the time you want to do Boston. Bwaaaaaaahahahahaha. Sigh. Hey, just gotta keep getting out there, right?

 
At February 13, 2011 at 8:13 PM , Blogger Kate said...

Billy is seriously amazing! This is the best gift in the whole wide world and nobody deserves it more than you!! Now you don't have to drive to the gym at the crack of dawn and get ready in 5 minutes before work!! You can run the Boston course and EVERYTHING!!! I am so happy for you!!! HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

 
At February 14, 2011 at 7:36 AM , Blogger Emily said...

ARE YOU SERIOUS?! At first I thought this was a joke, and then kept reading. I literally just got goosebumps reading this post! That is the most amazing present EVER, not to mention has some awesome functions I've never even heard of. I think Billy is ready for his lifetime achievement award - Best Husband Ever. Happy birthday to you, sooo happy for you! :)

I just looked up this post so that I could find out what type of treadmill it is that you have and I have to say, I have a serious case of treadmill jealous pants! Unfortunately, there is NO way we could fit a treadmill in our studio apartment but one day...
