Good evening everyone! I was planning on taking the day off blogging again but I couldn’t. This afternoon Stride Gum finally announced the winners of The Big Stridea. Even though I finished 7th in voting I won! For whatever reason they got booted 2 entrants did get booted to move me into 5th and one of the winning spots! I was more stunned than excited when I got the “Congratulations” e-mail from them 2 weeks ago. Yes I knew 2 weeks ago. Sorry but they asked me to keep quiet till they announced the winners.

To all of you who voted for me and who blogged about me trying to get more votes for me……THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
I couldn’t have done it without your help! I’m very blessed to have had all your support not only for this contest but for the past 8 months as well. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I’d write more but I’m pressed for time. I just wanted to inform you as soon as I was allowed too. Have a great night!

    Seriously? John, you won! You have no idea how much I wanted to pick up my phone and call to congratulate you. But I guess this is the next best thing. It’s funny how excited I just got for someone I have never met. You deserve this so much and I am so excited to hear about all of your races.
    We all get in ruts from time to time, but just remember how awesome you are. You are a huge inspiration.
