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

on THIS PAGE.

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

THANK YOU!

[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?
