This week has been nuts. Hopefully I'll be able to sit down and post about it. But work has been crazy and either I've been sick this week and when not sick, swamped (coughahem watching new fall tv). I do want to throw out there that I received two more boxes of shoes. One box from RunnerMark in Topeka and another from Erin in California. You guys are fabulous, THANKS.

Also on the shoe front. The radio station and I are still working on a good concept for raising the shoes. It's down to either doing it with a local shoe store or hosting it at the Turkey Trot in November. We have some work ahead of us to get it figured out. Either way, all the shoes will now officially be shipped December 1. I know, the date keeps changing, but I want the opportunity to send as many as possible. So yes, you can still send shoes (or give me your when the entire blahgespehere and myself are in chicago in a few weeks). Either way, shoot me an email at

I hope to post some pictures this weekend, which is also turning really busy. But I HOPE. Picturepalooza will have to wait until this weekend too.

Last reminder, you can enter my marathon kit contest tonight, and after that no mas! Because tomorrow afternoon I pick the winner. Who's excited kids. Happy Thursday.

EEK! Chicago!! YAY!!! Can't wait :)

And also, I think you should be president of the world or something. You have done SUCH an amazing job with the shoe drive. It is seriously just awesome.

Hope things ease up for you at work soon!
