Dear Anonymous, You Rock My World!

Yesterday I received one of the best gifts a runner could ever receive...


A GARMIN FORERUNNER 10!!! From someone named Anonymous...

Here is the story:

About a month ago I received a comment on a blog post asking what colour Forerunner 10 I liked best. Naturally, I replied. The thought did cross my mind about whether someone may be wanting to buy me one (since I dropped enough hints for it), although I mostly suspected this probably wasn't the case and that most likely it was my husband someone playing a joke on me.

Then yesterday, I was casually sitting on my couch at home after a day at work and the postie rocks up with a box that was labelled Wiggle.com - FYI this is one of the BEST websites to buy running, cycling and swimming gear for GREAT prices!

My heart started to jump as I knew straight away what it was. And surely enough, when I opened it up a beautiful shiny new green Garmin FR10 was smiling out at me... I know you love my poetry!

Anonymous, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I know you were probably hoping it would arrive in time for my marathon last weekend since I noticed the postage date was 17th Oct. However, there will be many an opportunity for me to get some VERY good use out of this, so don't be disheartened. You have made my week year!

The sad news... I am currently injured at the moment and can barely walk, let alone run, so will have to wait another week or so until I can actually get out and use this bad boy. It is killing me! I am actually just wearing it around the house because I so badly want to be using it. It is the best toy ever.

And the moral of this blog post people: Always drop hints about what things you want! So here is my list for all you other readers out there (and now I am dreaming a lot bigger):
  • A trip to Hawaii
  • An Audi
  • An iPad
  • And i'll throw in a new boat for the hubby too - got to keep everyone happy.
But seriously, thank you again Anonymous reader, whoever you are. I totally owe you one - you are legendary! 

Have you ever received an anonymous gift? What was it? 

Best part of your week this week?

    1. Thanks! It is the best! I am not sure, to be honest, what the injury is. It is my ankle and it only started to get really sore on Mon arvo, but I would say it is 90% marathon related :)

  6. I'm glad it arrived safe and sound. For my entertainment I might let you wonder about my identity for a while longer... although it doesn't seem to be driving you crazy not knowing!

    1. Haha, thanks! I do have my suspicions though. It kinda is actually driving me a wee bit crazy but I also respect if you don't want me to know who you are... Even though you are now in my top 5 best friends :)
