back to reality ...

Wow! I'm not even sure where I should begin. Hood to Coast was amazing. Nuun, and everyone who works there, is amazing. My nuun-mates are amazing.

(Nuun Platuun Van 2: Casey, XLMIC, Harmony, Jess, me, Susan, and Kim)

Even all the missteps were amazing (well, maybe amazingly funny or amazingly frustrating). Honestly, I'm don't even know if my recap will do my experience any justice.

But regardless, the recap is going to have to wait, as today is my first full day home since August 18th. I have no clue what's going on here and I need to get my butt in gear. So, to hold you over, here are some of my favorite pictures from the weekend ...

P.S. Today is the LAST DAY to enter my wicked awesome Running Skirts raffle. The winner will take home a COMPLETE OUTFIT from Running Skirts. Shirt. Skirt. Socks. Gear Bag. Winner takes all.

All you need to do is make a donation HERE. For every $5 you donate, you get one entry. All of the details can be found HERE. And as an extra incentive to donate, if you make a contribution TODAY, I will give you five (5) bonus entries to the raffle. Plus, you'll earn some good karma. So what are you waiting for?

It was SO awesome to meet you. You are even cooler in person than you are online (if that is even possible) I hope we can cross paths again soon (maybe in San Diego!)

Again, great to meet you girl! You have some seriously amazing energy! Glad you were not annoyed by my urge to tell everyone that walked up to you at the beach that you were in Runner's World! ha! :) Glad you are home safely.

I miss yoooouuuuuuu! You were such a super part of this experience. Your guts and determination combined with your chill, mellowness blew me away. I learned so much from you and your big, beautiful, near-perpetual smile. Leg 35 was such a beast and you DID IT! I love that pic of 'Coach' running with you. I got some great pics of you and the Platuun completing our tattoo mission in the parking lot. They're on my FB…check 'em out. You are such a superstar, Tonia. Thanks for everything…and the phone charger :)
