And while you all are just finding out, right now who the winner is, we actually had a private medal ceremony earlier in the day with the top three finishers. Don't worry I had a picture taken:
That would be Beth at the top of the podium shouting ecstaticly for joy at being the inagural contest winner. On her right is Cathy, she definitely wasn't thrilled at coming in second as you can see. For starters, she doesn't even like flowers and secondly, she's not too sure that medal is even real (oh it is Cathy, it is). On Beth's left is my mom, Kathymphelps, while in all actuality she tied for third, we decided to go ahead and give her the bronze since she by far makes the most comments on the site. But we did go ahead and invite Runsis and TeriLynn just for fun. That's Teri peeking out from behind Cathy in 2nd place, she's about to push Cathy right off the podium and make a big scene. I'm hoping that dude over there with the video camera caught it all on tape. I've got no idea who he was, but he was filming the whole time. I'm sure it'll surface on YouTube later. And Runsis is the really annoyed looking dark haired girl in the background. Yeah, she wasn't too thrilled about the whole not getting the medal thing either.
As for me, I'm the smiley one with the dress on holding the empty medal tray. I really wanted to look nice for the occasion and I'm fond of hats, so... Oh and pay no attention to the whole Athens 2004 in the background and on the podium. They were our contest sponsor. It's a vacuum.
So that's pretty much it. Now I'll just need Beth to go check out our zazzle shop, tell me via email which shirt and size. Then I'll just need her address to send her the shirt, her phone number in case there's a problem, her birthdate, mother's maiden name and of course her social security number and she'll have that shirt as fast as she can say runfastmommy.com (as long as she has a really slow stutter that causes her to take oh about 7-14 days to say it in). And now it's time to think of another contest, I'm thinking something to do with funny running stories. Hmm...........
'Til next time.
PS. In case you're wondering, I DID get the long run in today. SO TAKE THAT FAT PANTS! I believe that would be 1 point for the skinny jeans :-)
