a day of smiles ...

Today has been a good day.

No, wait. Today has been an EXCELLENT day. It started with an email from someone I have never met. She wrote to me (and G) to tell us that reading our blogs has helped her on her journey to become a runner. We inspired her. Wow. That made my day and completely amazed me. Isn't it crazy how you can affect someone without even realizing it?

Then (still smiling from the email) I found out that I won the giveaway on Saundra's blog, Fitness for Foodies. The prize was a Nike gift card, which means new running gear for me!Seriously, could this day get any better?

Yes. Yes, it can ... because my new running shoes have been shipped (so excited to try them), I ran an awesome three miler this afternoon (25:56, in case you were wondering) and I am secret shopping one of my favorite restaurants tonight!

OK, I'll stop bragging before you want to kick me in the face ...

Happy Monday!

I hope Tuesday is good too, although it surely won't top yesterday.

I love secret shopping. I used to do that for all kinds of vendors. Great fun! I don't know if it ever improved the service though.
