Operation Jack & the Big Stocking Winner!

Sunday was The Operation Jack Satellite 6.1 mile run to celebrate Sam's completion of 61 marathons this year!

Hubby dropped me off at Dawn's house and then we met up with Misty. Soon we were on our merry little way to the Southern Maine Community College campus to run amok!
Luckily I brought plenty of clothing with me and had sufficient layers to keep warm as it was freezing cold. The cold winds off the ocean certainly made it bitter and biting!

But nothing warms the heart faster than running for a great cause with a bunch of awesome people!




Thanks to Sarah and Danielle!



Danielle, Misty & Dawn


I finally got to meet Dailymile friend Brendan!

Team Maine post run-can you tell it's COLD?
Now...for the big Operation Jack stocking winner!

First, I want to thank each and everyone of you who supported Operation Jack with a donation. Every dollar is appreciated and that is why I did the giveaway in the first place! SO...

We did it all VERY scientifically.

I wrote every name down on a piece of paper in blue crayon.
Lola supervised to make sure everyone got an entry!



Then I showed Lola how to fold up each entry and it was put into her giant (empty) pretzel jar that she loves to play with. This turned into a game for her.
 **yes, I am wearing shorts during a blizzard in Maine. I just got off the bike...I was hot.**

Then we put all the names into the big jar

The very last name going into the jar...

and the name that Lola pulled out??


Congratulations to Bridget!!

*email me at jsmall14(at)maine(dot)rr(dot)com and I will make arrangements to get your big prize sent out.

I might steal Lola's idea and use a binky during my next trainer ride. Might make it easier.
