best part of my day.

Actually I should say best part of my week. Coming home and finding this little package that was left for me from this wonderful girl, lacy:

*the note was hilarious, a little inside joke between lacy and i that i laughed over for the whole time i was gimping around making dinner (yes i've learned the fine art of cooking on crutches). it was so sweet and so funny*

*the best part was the package, decorated in stickers. i'm keeping those stickers and putting them on my runner's world 'pace calculator' chart that's on my fridge. lacy just informed (via email, since we still have yet to meet and really it's becoming comical that we haven't) me that she almost wrecked while bringing these to me, making them all the better!*

This came from my friend Lacy. A friend who I've never met, yet live down the street from. A friend who it seems I have several random connections, have heard a lot about, and who has a blog. I call her a friend because the past two and a half weeks she has been the most encouraging force during this injury through emails. And now from a simple package of Nutter Butters. Which I'm inhaling even now! YUM. Thanks Lacy, you are amazing, and my biggest inspiration. Running blahgesphere, if you need some motivation, some encouragement, and to read through a great story, you should read Lacy's blog.

She has come back from a horrible pelvic fracture to run speedier and speedier times, she qualified for Boston at that little OKC Marathon this April. Yes we run so many of the same races, have crossed paths so many times. So crazy. She wins and places in most local races, and she is a mom and an overall amazing person. Lacy I hope you don't mind me pimpin' your blog!

ALSO, my friend Meaghan has a great BOOK giveaway, go and check it out HERE!

That is so freaking awesome. Seriously, I am so glad I found the running/blogging community, everyone is so supportive and I've made so many "friends" Don't you just wish we could have a big convention and all meet each other in person?!?!?

Wait! Wait! I think I know what the problem is with your foot! You've eaten soooo many nutter butters that a peanut plant has started growing in between the bones of your foot! It's a new medical condition called a peanut fracture. Unfortunately a detox is in order to remedy the condition...
