I saw a lot of people post all their bling from the year and I just wanted to show some of mine off too. All these people are my bling. My best bling I earned this year are the friendships I made with some amazing people. So here it goes.........
First and foremost, my wonderful wife. I couldn't be more proud and honored at the same time. She supports me, she loves me and she has also dabbled in her own running journey.
Who couldn't ask for a more amazing group of people to run, train and party with. I have officially been a pacer for three training teams. I remember last year for #surfnsanta14, I showed up for the team picture and didn't know anyone. This year, we have 160 new and old team members. The difference from last year to this year is truly amazing. I don't ever run alone anywhere. Each and everyone of the team members I help pace each week is the best bling I could find.
I couldn't post anything without posting about #teamawesome. Who is #teamawesome? It's everybody. It's the people always smiling, always cheering the last runner, and always being positive. It's who we are. My mini-team is honestly the best people in the world. They inspire me daily.
Last but not least. #DEEZRUNNINGHOEZ
Did I tell you I was the only #hoez that didn't run the Seashore 50k. Not only did my peeps run a total of SIX MARATHONS and countless half marathons, they all kicked ass Saturday at their first ultra. Hats off #hoez. But without these 4 blingtastic friends, I wouldn't be who I am as a runner. My #hoez are so awesome that after running her first Ultra, Kim showed up in costume and volunteered at the J&A PR Bell and Chalkboard that evening at #surfnsanta15. Who does that?
That's why I love my bling. My bling is way better than your bling because it involves people, friends, family, and life.
I hope everyone else had a wonderful 2015 and I hope everyone also has a wonderful Christmas.
