Do what you say you'll do!

It actually came....

And I thought I should show it to you...

Not because I'm saying "Look at me, look at me, I placed," but ONLY because the race director of the Apalachicola Running for the Bay Marathon and Half Marathon ACTUALLY did what he promised and sent out certificates to all those placing in their divisions. (My race recaps HERE and HERE)

I didn't believe it until I saw it in my mailbox. At the race we were told we'd be mailed certificates for placing. After the snafu that was this inaugural race I doubted I'd ever see such a thing, but the race director actually did it. Oh yes, he did! And I'd like to say that's a good start!

It's a good start in improving this race if there is going to be a next year. Do what you promise. Do what's advertised and deliver. . .


  1. Congrats!!! I'm glad they actually mailed it to you. I've placed in the Athena division 3 times in the Portland Marathon and never received anything. This year I got second and was shocked to actually get a plaque. I was so excited.

  2. Great stuff and congrats on the placing - top effort that!!!
