I’ve been stalking my email the majority of this week. You’ve heard of stalking your mailman when you’re waiting for a package, right? Well,visualize me refreshing my email a zillion times a day waiting for a certain email to come.
That was me starting Monday through yesterday afternoon.
Tailwind Nutrition was going to be announcing the names of their Trailblazers towards the end of February and I was on pins and needles waiting to hear if I had made it. The suspense was killing me!
Knowing me for the calm, cool and collected person I am (not!), I’m sure you can imagine the huge ‘WHOOP!” and “Woo-Hoo!!!” that I let loose when I opened this email:
Welcome to the 2017 Trailblazer Team!
Hi Melinda, We are excited to announce that you have been selected as a Tailwind Trailblazer for 2017!
I tried Tailwind about a year ago. I knew I needed to figure out my nutrition for my 100 Miler and all the marathons I was running. The fueling I had been using (gels and chomps), they just weren’t doing the job. By the end of a marathon, if I ever saw another gel it would be too soon. LOL!!!
The reality that my fueling would be detrimental to my uber long Ultra’s hit home. I HAD to figure this out. That’s when I heard about Tailwind and decided to give it a try.
It was a night and day difference in my running and energy levels and my tummy loved it! I haven’t looked back.
I am a very happy runner!
So, when I opened that email? I was over the moon excited! The opportunity to be associated with this product was waaaayy more than I ever thought I’d have the privilege to do.
I am #blessed.
Thank you, Tailwind!!!
