Last night, Stacy held a little marathon pre-party for Diana and I.
The party was to include dinner, dessert and some motivational speeches. The attendees were Stacy, Diana and my Mom.
When Diana walked through the door, I about died.
See that hanging out of her backpack? Yep, it is a pacer stick for me. She actually used a bamboo stick and constructed this lovely thing. Only problem was that the stick says 3:43…apparently she missed the memo that our goal time is actually a 3:42!!
Following an awesome dinner, it was time for gifts. Obviously the best part of the evening.
I gave Stacy and Diana gift cards to beauty brands for post-race pedis. And Diana gave Coach Stacy (she has coached us basically the past year) new sandals, which will look awesome with her pedicure!
Then it was Stacy’s turn…
After reading the sweetest letter to Diana and I (the tears were flowing), she brought out some gifts.
In the gift was a copy of the super sweet letter, which included some pretty awesome quotes,
a pace band for our race,
some seriously kick ass socks that I have been wishing for,
and most excitingly, custom made Miles with Style shirts!!!!!!!
These shirts are freaking amazing. I was in shock!!! I had NO idea that Stacy, my Mom, and my Aunt Holly had been working on these things. They are exactly what I would have had made, should I had been making myself.
After putting on the shirt and modeling for the group, I got another surprise…..
See all of those shirts?? In total, 35 shirts were made. The shirts have a specific point, which was explained to me. And I love it so much. There will be much more to come with what the plan is for these beauties. So please stay tuned. Perhaps you will receive one someday very soon 🙂
All in all, it was the perfect evening. And just what we needed to lift up our spirits and give us a little boost.
I am so fortunate to have these people in my life. Everyday isn’t easy, but with the help of my family and friends I make it through. Thank you to everyone who loves me, supports me and encourages me. It means more than you even know.
