You might remember that in November I found out I made it into the Dirty Dozen as one of the top 12 runners in an 8-month trail race series. I was surprised and so excited since it was the first time I ran more then 1-2 trail races in a year.
Anyway, I wasn’t really expecting to receive anything in recognition of my accomplishment…ok, I admit, I kind of expected a t-shirt. There’s always a t-shirt right? Not this time. So much time had passed I really hadn’t given it much more thought until last weekend. Guess what being one of the Dirty Dozen gets you other than dirty? Not a t-shirt. Not a medal. Not a certificate. A plate! I want to love it because I worked so hard to get it! It’s just not my style at all and I’m not much of a knickknack type of person.
What am I supposed to do with this? Chad says put it on a plate stand in my workout room. Would you? I wonder if it’s dishwasher safe? And, I was #10! Not #11 like the plate says.
What is the most unusual or unexpected award you have ever received? Did you keep it? Toss it? Pack it away in the basement? What would you do with this plate?
Happy Friday everyone!
Counting down the days until my first Twelve In Twenty Twelve half marathon: 14 days to go
