2nd Annual Holiday Blogger Gift Exchange

First off, I have to thank Jill of Run With Jill for organizing the Holiday Blogger Gift Exchange.  Head over to the website and read all about it! I encourage any and all bloggers to join the fun next year.

Anyway,  I was not in the best of moods when I got home last night and noticed a little package with my name on it.  This was when I realized a very important global truth:

Any gift – no matter how small – has the power to brighten any day, even if it’s a terrible-horrible-no-good-very-bad-Thursday.  

Surprised is an understatement.  I was giddy with excitement!!

In truth, my Secret Blog Santa is amazing and sent me an awesome gift:

Tough Mudder water bottle (!!), an electrolyte enhanced drink tablet and cookies…..

It took all my willpower to hold off on eating all three of these prior to photo-taking:

(These cookies might have been the best I’ve ever tasted)

How did she know that the water bottle/thermos was one of those things I would always want but would never buy for myself:

Thank you, Robin of  http://westfordmommy.blogspot.com!  Best. Gift. Ever. I can’t wait to head out on a training run/session with my new reminder of inspiration.  There is something to be said for the small things in life….like taking a moment and making someone’s day.

I am someone’s Secret Santa.  I sent it off about 2 weeks ago.  If you haven’t received it yet….I hope you get it soon!

Keep on Swimming,

Coach Meg
