"Oh Happy Day" - Etta James




E v e r.

You see I received a bottle of this:

What is it?

PILL SHAPED GOLD.The bottle that may very well save my butt on May 6th!

Who in their right mind would send little ole' me such a thoughtful, holy expensive, useful, awesome & amazing gift?

Jeff and Annie.

Need a photo?




Duh, of course, in their RunEmz shirts! ;)

If you don't follow these two.  You should.  They are 100% Emz Approved  [I'm pretending you care what I think, let me have my moment.]

Jeff:  you can find him [here].
Expect everything from some awesome bike photos, photos of bikes that are pretty much furniture in their home, amazing 1/2 Mary times, current event, politics & sci-fi [really bad like "sharktopus" or something] movie reviews.

Annie: [the better half wife] [here]
This girl can run and can probably run in heels.
This girl knows shoes --- which means we should probably never meet but we will go shopping together one day.  You. Bet. Cha.

Thank you.
Thank you.
Thank you.

Don't forget to follow me on my new blog [to promote my 24 hour run] [here]


Don't forget to enter for a chance to win the 5 pound gummy bear [here].

Run on, my friends!

Emz said...

Caroline. Goooooo butler!! Hoping you win!!

Amanda@runninghood said...

I think I read about this stuff on Chris K's blog. ?? Would you recommend taking this stuff before long runs or just races? Have you tried it a lot? Thanks for the links to their blogs. Off to see them now.

Emz said...

Amanda- yay! You will love them! [jeff & Annie].
It is the stuff Chris k promoted!! You are a good blogger! ;)
I'm new to it....never used it but I know it takes 30 days in your system to work!!

Curious to see what you think of the Optygen. I'm seeing this supplement more and more in the blog world, and have considered giving it a try before my next race. Jeff is the guru of supplements, and got me going with Ultragen as a recovery drink - which seems to work pretty well for me.

Looking forward to the treadmill extravaganza. I'm guessing you've already got this covered, but if you know what brand of treadmill you're going to be running on (not sure if you'll be using your treadmill) you should contact the manufacturer and look for a sponsorship from them in return for some easy advertising. Every little bit helps.

Anne said...

Really looking forward to seeing how this works for you! What a perfect gift :) I'll definitely go check out these two cool bloggers!

Aimee said...

Yay for awesome gifts from awesome bloggy friends! :)

Jess @ Blonde Ponytail said...

EMZ approved! Of course that's valuable!

What a thoughtful gift!!

EricaH said...

Looks like I have two new blogs i need to follow :) I am looking forward to hearing what you think about them there pills of gold.

Unknown said...

Johann said...

Super gift from a super couple! These running bloggers keep on amazing me. All the best with your last month of prep and training!

adena said...

I don't know what that gift is but you are excited so YAY!!

Does your new blog have comments turned off on purpose? Loved the recent post there. You have a great crew!

Marlene said...

That looks like gold in a bottle!

Jen said...

Getting mail from friends is the best thing! It can make your whole day! Like when I got my shirt from you! I think you need to do a post about what this stuff does. I'm curious!

Matty O said...

Please let me know if you try it and how it works for you :)

Run Run Run!

Jill said...

I'm hoping it's your magical pill...not that you need it or anything!

Nelly said...

I'm really curious what you think of Optygen! I know Chris K liked it, so if another one of my blogger friends likes it maybe I'll look more into it!

Big Daddy Diesel said...

That was nice of them

Angie said...

I wore my Emz shirt to the gym this morning. my trainer asked me to pass along his compliments and best wishes for your current endeavor. (translated from trainer-talk) He really liked my shirt, i do too.

Sarah said...

Matt saw me reading your blog and asked, "What's runemz?" I said, "That's my friend Emily." He said, "Reminds me of Run DMC." :-D
