And the Winner Is...

Wait just a second. Let's think about this here for a moment and be smart. This blog is being fed in snippets to a number of locations out on the internet and if I just go straight ahead and announce the winner of our Follower's Contest right at the get go, what incentive will people have to click the link and come on over here. It would be like putting whether or not Jack Bauer dies in the previews for next season. Who would watch the show? So basically what you have here is me filibustering until I believe I've got enough typed that we've reached the click here for more length on Facebook, Squidoo, and various running sites around town. I think we're about there. Maybe not yet. Ok now...


BETH!!!


That's right...The sneaky little diva with her crafty little plan is walking away with her very own runfastmommy shirt. Is she a mommy? Why yes! Of an almost two year old in fact. Does she run? Did I mention she has a two year old? So I think the answer to that question would be non-stop.


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...........
Stay tuned.

'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 :-)

I'm getting in contact (trying to at least) with Michigan moms who are out there blogging and raising healthy children. On behalf of the Michigan Apple Committee, I'm trying to get families on board with Michigan apples. Since the state's economy is dying, I encourage you to look into buying Michigan apples for your family or at least drop by our website: michiganapples.com.
Thanks!

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I would like to take this moment & thank my 3 recruited followers: s.morris101, atalaski, & a extra special thanks to RunSis for going against family loyalties. I hope runnanna will still watch the kiddies for your birthday outing :)

Exactly how tired were you when you posted this blog? Can you say Slap Happy;)

runnanna said...

Your picture and description just made me laugh out loud! Can I borrow that hat?!? Congrats Beth! Well done!

RunMom said...

Runsis-It's all true every word and you know it. Don't try to play it off as a joke just b/c you got caught with that sourpuss look on your face.

And runnanna no you may not borrow the hat because by an odd twist of fate it was stolen from me by a lost Eskimo who was looking to make a wadrobe change to fit in a little more in our area. But if you're interested, she left behind her own warm fuzzy hat and I don't think she's coming back for it anytime soon.
