He had written each of our names on our bags (how sweet!). I assumed that this was because of a bib/chip mix-up from a race last year that was all my fault (long story). We immediately started to look through our bags, (the shirts were way nicer this year, but unfortunately, they were all out of my size. Oh, well. Another size large for the pile!) I love that the Oakville Half Marathon people put your name on the bib. What a nice touch!
As I got to the bottom of my bag, I realized there was a little something extra at the bottom of my bag (I recognized the wrapping paper as our own). It was a box, complete with a bow. Could it be? Is it what I think it is??! Yes!! It was a GARMIN!!! Obviously, I was (am) ecstatic! I really was surprised...thanks honey.
The extra added super-bonus was that my brother was here to help me figure out how to work it. He has almost the same model, so he knew all of the ins and outs, and I plugged it in right away, and I went to bed even more excited about the race!
|Aww. so pretty.|
To recap...My husband rocks. He is so supportive of me and this running thing. He worked a night shift last night, only to rush home for 6am so my brother and I could head out the race. He even looked chipper when we arrived home around 10:30am. How does he do it?! He deserves a medal!
