Some of you who have been reading for a while (and who surely recall each and every of my super exciting races and events) may recall that way back last year I decided to do a little deal called the Mora Classic. Mora being a town about 20 miles west of here. The Classic being four events held throughout the year - a canoe race, a half marathon, a bike race, and a cross country ski race. Do all four in one year and you get a special medal. An athletic challenge plus another medal to add to my collection? Yes please.
So I completed all of the events.
May 2009 - 15 mile canoe race
August 2009 - 1/2 marathon
September 2009 - 50 mile bike tour
February 2010 - 35k cross country ski race
After completing all the events, I waited patiently to receive my fabulous classic medal in the mail. And waited. And waited. And waited. It never came.
And then my running partner sent me a text today.
Yep. He tracked down my medal. By means that may resort to the filing of a harassment restraining order. But let's focus on what's important - I finally, finally have my little medal, which I can promptly hang around my closet doorknob.
