I won the lottery! I am one of the lucky 20,000 women chosen (by random drawing) to run in the 6th Annual Nike Womens Marathon in San Fran this October.
I know what you’re thinking….since when is running San Francisco hills a prize?
Well, let me break down the perks for you:
- A getaway weekend….in San Francisco, duh!
- Ghirardelli chocolate station at mile 12
- Pedicure station at the finish line
- Every finisher receives a necklace by Tiffany & Co!….And did I mention the necklaces are presented to runners by SF firemen wearing tuxedos? No, I’m serious.
I’ll admit it, I made it pretty clear from the get-go that getting my hands on one of those Tiffany necklaces was my true motivation. So I felt like a real loser when my friend Vera decided to use this race as an opportunity to raise funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society….gee Vera, thanks for exposing me as the true Tiffany’s ho that I am.
As a way to redeem myself, I’m taking this opportunity to urge all my friends and family to support Vera as she trains for her first marathon and raises much needed funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. It’s easy to make a gift on line by visiting her Team in Training Fundraising page….well, surely it’s easier than running 26.2 miles through the hills of San Francisco.
