It's a major award!
Ok, not quite like that. And yes, I realize Christmas is over but my love for this movie and this moment is year round.
I just wanted to share something pretty cool. Last weekend, as part of the Kick Off Training Run, the Pittsburgh Marathon was offering a virtual option. This way you could still be part of the excitement and be entered to win some cool prizes.
Like I posted before, I was going back and forth over whether to physically attend the run or not and due to the ice I opted for the treadmill (after some more delicious sleep, of course).
The pic above is what I posted to Instagram and used the #GameOnPgh hashtag. I didn't think much about it afterward - I mean, everybody was doing it. ;-)
I was completely shocked when I got this comment to the pic on Monday:
Talk about excited!! I've only been tempted by a FitBit for FOREVER. I know I've said this before but I'm nerdy, I like gadgets and numbers and stats and graphs and all that jazz. This plays right into my obsessive needs and desires! I can't wait to do things like track how I sleep (crappy, I know - my cat has been sleeping on my face lately and I'm up and down a lot), and how many steps I've taken in a day. I used to use an old school pedometer like 10 years ago when I first started walking for exercise. I'm currently using a GPS watch and other trackers on my phone (endomondo, etc), but just how many steps is in a ten mile run? I want to know this! And I will! I also think it is great that it connects to MyFitnessPal which I use on a daily basis!
So yes I'm giddy - just like old Dad was over his leg lamp. I got an email this morning that they were sending it out today so I should be getting it soon. Can't wait to share my geeking out with you!
Thanks again to the people at the Pittsburgh Marathon!
