Swallowing My Pride – I Need Yo Help!

January 3, 2012 · 71 comments

Let’s talk about how I want to be SR and Janae.

(Janae‘s picture)

I think most of you know this. And if you know them, you get it.

(SR‘s picture)

These two are absolutely sicknasty runners. We’re talking crazy fast. Like “laughing-at-Alyssa-as-she-merely-hopes-to-qualify-for-Boston-one-day” fast. Janae and I have played with the idea of running a marathon together.. however, I’m thinking by running it “together” she means cheering me on for a good twenty minutes after she’s been chomping on her finishers banana and chocolate milk.

I really do try to be sicknasty and tough. I do. But then things like this happen:

Maybe I’ll never be diesel.

I do, however, want to join a diesel team. A team that SR and Janae are both a part of: Team Refuel with Chocolate Milk.

Honestly, what could be more up my alley? How many times have I talked about how much I love chocolate milk after my workouts? A lot. I adore chocolate milk.

So. I need your help.

If you would, please vote for me be the next face of Team Refuel


Type “Alyssa” in the search box, click my face, and click VOTE.


[Disclaimer: in my bio, I mention that I “run in the same crowds” as SR and Janae. I’m not delusional enough to think I wouldn’t be crying/gasping for air with every inch of my life to keep up with those ladies, I was merely alluding to that whole runner/blogger thing we share.]

If I was really demanding, I’d ask you to vote every single day. Just because you can until January 15.

I mean… I already spent a New Years with chocolate sauce on my face. I’m halfway there, right?
