Anyway, as I said, I did not win the draw. I was disappointed, but ultimately okay with it, because you can't win 'em all. I set it aside while hoping to be able to catch some local coverage about how it all turned out on the 27th.
And then something happened....
This afternoon, I got an email from the good folks at City Chase. They had shared my entry and the conversation we'd had about my motives for participating with the fine people at Urban Rec and GUESS WHAT?!?! Urban Rec decided that I (we-my son and I!) should be in the chase too! They have gifted us a registration!!
WE ARE CHASING ON SATURDAY!!
I was completely stunned-I never saw that coming and it's totally made my week, quite possibly, my summer. I am constantly in awe of how the magic of my life works. I love it when life throws the doors wide open!
So I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Urban Rec for their incredible generosity and to City Chase as well for being so sweet. I am deeply grateful. I promise that our team, BRAVE & CRAZY will leave it all out on the field of play. We will think hard, play hard and most importantly, laugh hard and at the end of it all, we'll come in smiling and with a good tale to tell. See you at the finish line!
