Wow, Did I Do All That?

This is what Number One Daughter made me for Christmas:



It's all there, the thrills, the chills, the spills! Only my MCM medal is missing; it's at work, where I look at and fondle it daily.

It includes my first ever 5K, in 1998, after which I did nothing until 2005. Also included is the note stamped "Paid in Full" from my first student loan, finally paid off in 1990. Geeze, that's not that long ago... (NOD: What does this have to do with running?? Whatever.)

NOD threw in a few extras, like that classic photo from an "I Love Lucy" episode. (Cuz I remind her of Lucy when I'm trying to run??)

What a nice kid.

Too cool! That's such a sweet present. I love that most of your races have the actual race name on the blog, a lot of ours are generic so I end up writing the race name and date on the back.

"Lucy, I'm HOME!" What's the story with that one?
Nice shrine to your past adventures. NOD sure knows how to make you feel proud.
