Well I am trying to catch up on my Recaps, because I myself love to look back at them so that is why I am doing this Blog! Well back in the summer the deadline for the Lottery for The TC mile was coming and I knew it would was going to be hard to fit it in, so I did not try to get in. I really wanted to but I had to say no to something. It was then in September and a friend sent me a Link from Kemps Cow. She said I thought of you !! You Dress up, be goofy, whatever and submit a picture to Kemps cow to WIN A FREE ENTRY TO THE HARD TO GET INTO TC 10 MILE RACE!! Oh I saw this an I was for sure in!! I love a CHALLENGE!! So I thought about what i loved about Kemps cow and it was not hard to figure out what I was going to do!! My favorite post drink in Kemps Chocolate Milk, I just love it after a run!! So I got my outfit together and my milk and got my husband lined up to take some pictures and it was perfect the neighbors dairy cows we out so away we went over there after my 16 mile run which I really did have the milk after!! So it started out with this Picture, and Of course I had to put some touches on it!! It was so much fun taking this and mt husband says I ‘m pretty sure your not going to win I’m sure there will be alot of entries!! So then I cam up with this Photo!!So I enter this and in a few days was the Contest!! I was at work and the email came in!! I WON THE CONTEST!! KempsCows
