In case you missed my post about my ringing in the New Year with a virtual half marathon (plus a couple more miles), you can catch it here (with the cool photo of my ice bath... brrrr.) I also link on that post the amazing group who hosted the "Doctor Who" themed virtual race.
Well, today after getting home with Bugaboo from our "Kids' Zumba class", we went out to check the mail...
"It's here! It's here!"
A befuddled husband and Squeakers came outside to greet us at the mailbox and I fought the urge to tear my envelope open and quickly display the goods.

Pretty cool, right? The detail is amazing and if you signed up for the half marathon distance, your ribbon will be blue. That is the only reason I volunteered myself for the half. I'd like to say I planned it all as the "big finish" to my holiday streak and to kick of the new year... but the truth is, it didn't look right with a green ribbon. :)
Bugaboo doesn't watch a whole lot of T.V., but it's hard not to pick up on the things mommy and daddy might like. So, despite catching up on the early episodes from the 1960's during the kids' nap or after bedtime... Bugaboo still picks these things up.
"Where's MY Tardis necklace, Mama?"
Can she earn a medal with zumba? ...Well, she is pretty good at running a mile. Maybe she'll get a green ribbon. ;-)
And on that note, I end it with this adorable thought... a room full of kids strutting their stuff in a zumba class.
Do you do virtual races? (I don't do many... it's not as fun as a race can be. But sometimes the bling is worth the solo run and lack of festive environment with other runners.)
