Three Things Thursday ...

Runner's World - J came home from a business trip with like 18 copies of the August 2011 Runner's World. In case you missed the memo HERE, Dizzle, Doodle and I are pictured in the cover story. We are on page 70. It's pretty much the coolest thing ever.

And since I love the photo so much, I will be shelling out $250 to purchase ALL of the photos taken of us during the shoot. There were two different set ups and about a zillion and one photos. I am so excited to see them.

Shoulder - Speaking of the photo in Runner's World (expect me to talk about this for a while), it was taken 13 days after my surgery. Bet you can't even tell. Anyway, tomorrow will be 2 months since the crash and as of this morning, my doctor has given me the "all clear" to resume my normal activity. And thanks to my active lifestyle, he thinks we can forgo the PT route. I am so psyched about this.

He even said I could try swimming, but to be prepared to doggie paddle. Doesn't he know that's the only stroke I'm good at?

NYC Marathon Raffle - Tomorrow morning I will be selecting the next three winners in my NYC Marathon Fundraising Raffle HERE. There are still 15 awesome prizes including items from Tough Chik (the maker of the shirts the girls and I wore in Runner's World), See Jane Run (race entry, people!), RoadID and Allied Medal Displays. All you need to do to enter is make a donation HERE and then leave a comment on my raffle post.

As of right now, I am $90 short of being HALFWAY to my $3000 goal. And I need your help to get there. Anyone who makes a donation today, will get 10 BONUS ENTRIES in the raffle. And if you happen to be the person who gets me to $1500, you will get 20 BONUS ENTRIES. So what are you waiting for?

Thank you for your support!

Karen said...

I just got my RW--your picture is awesome! How exciting!

jamie@sweatyhugs said...

Love love love the whole RW deal! I too would be shelling out the $$$ for the pics. What an opportunity!

I couldn't help but laugh on the doggie paddle comment. That's about all I can muster up myself. :)

I'd want those photos too! What an amazing opportunity. Can't wait for my copy to arrive.

Yeah for being cleared! But still be smart you are super woman but remember your mild mannered alter ego is still human.

I finally did it. You're surprised, I know. Summer is an expensive time for me but I was shelling out cash for a new dehumidifier (ugh!) already so I did it! I only wish it was more. You are doing great!!

I thought when you said something yesterday it was $250 for ONE photo.. for all of them? That's a steal! I would hang those bad boys all over my house and be like, "oh? that picture? It was for my Runner's World photo shoot.."

fancy nancy said...

I can't wait to get my Runner's World!!! That is so awesome!!!

Glad you got the all clear!

Courtney said...

So once you have said photos, you're gonna post them on facebook for everyone to see right? :)

Congrats on the all clear to move about normally...

Looked great in RW! I was like "HEY! I met her : ) " Glad you feeling much better.

ajh said...

Got my RW today and I immediately looked for you. I yelled to my husband so I could show him the picture of the people I "know." So very exciting! I would buy a gazillion copies for sure.

Katie said...
