18 Days to the Big Dance, and the Coolest Valentine’s Day Gift Ever!

February 15, 2012

My wife, the lovely Sarah, has impeccable taste when it comes to giving gifts.

For Valentine’s Day, she gave me something I’ve had my eye on for a while — a customized race medal hanger from the fine folks at Allied Medal Displays.

Best thing about it, it’s a DetermiNation medal hanger. Check it out:

I can’t wait to get it up on the wall and start filling it up with my growing collection of race medals.

Sarah also gave me a gift certificate to Frank’s Barbershop, one of my absolutele favorite places in all of Knoxville. I gave her a couple of books she wanted, and we had a spectacular dinner at Le Parigo, a French bistro located downtown. Needless to say, we did not count the calories in our delicious three-course dinner, or the Gigi’s Cupcakes we had when we got home. The food hangover this morning was totally worth it, though.

Speaking of DetermiNation, today marks 18 days until the Rock ‘n’ Roll New Orleans Marathon. Now that the shadow of the valley of a 22-mile-long training run has passed and I’m heading toward the taper, I’m feeling great about race day and looking forward to the jazz brunch, visiting the marathon expo with my teammates and wolfing down some beignets as part of my carb-loading. We will be in New Orleans after all!

Remember, I am running for a cause — the American Cancer Society. I would appreciate any help to get me closer to my fund-raising goal. Donations of any size can be made by visiting my personal fund-raising page.
