Well, my friends, the day has finally come for our first report! Woo Hoo!! I just want to start off and thank all my challengers for signing up and taking up my challenge. I am overwhelmed by the support and positive feedback I have received. I also want to thank our great sponsors for taking a chance on us, and donating time, money and services to our cause for a healthier lifestyle. So I ask for you to show your support for them in turn by clicking on their links every once in a while and checking out what great things they have to offer!
Everyone is pumped up this week for the big challenge... no one more than me I think. I have been driving my family crazy with all my planning and brain storming, email checking, and chart making. I think I lost 3 "Friends" this week on facebook with all my announcing and begging... opps... Even a follower or two on here... BOOOOO!
Anywho.... Big thanks to all 1/2 of my signed up challengers for reporting to me on time or this morning. It makes life so much easier for me :) The rest of you, I guess just forgot. But that's okay, no hard feelings, this is the first week of a new thing, and well, stuff happens. Just so you all know, we have had over 60 people take up the challenge! Woo Hoo! So I am hoping to hear from the rest of you this NEXT Thursday.
But don't you think the people who were on top of it should be rewarded?! I think so!!! And so does one of our super awesome sponsors!!! Met Jesi Dewey, she's a Personal & Corporate Image Consultant for Mary Kay and she wants to reward our challengers throughout the summer for their hard work. Yay! There is almost nothing cooler then getting a prize for working hard, right?!
I wish I could give prizes to everyone! But, unfortunately, I can not... But the next best thing I could think of was to randomly draw two names (via Random.org) and award them with... drum-roll please...
A Gift Certificate worth $25 to use at Jesi Dewey's Mary Kay site!! Men: Don't be disappointed, they have stuff for you too. (And if you are still disappointed, well, find me a manly sponsor with manly giveaway stuff.)
The winners are:
Congrats, my friends!!! I'll pass your email on over to Jesi so she can hook you up with your prize!
The Moral of the Story: Report your miles on Thursday night!
Now, I just want to wish you all a great next week and keep up that walking and running! Next week, we will have other announcements, not necessarily prizes, but I have a few tricks up my sleeve to keep you all on your toes this summer! So stay tuned!
But before I sign off, here is a little message from one of our challengers I got in an email:
Check out our Challengers Stats for the first week of the 120 Mile Fitness Challenge!! Note: They start out in alphabetical order, but don't end that way, I had to add a few late reports this morning. Also, these aren't ALL my challengers, just the ones who have reported their miles so far.
