Well, sort of. A few weeks ago, I read a post on the Salonpas Facebook looking for teams to sponsor. I had used a few salonpas pads just recently for achy body parts, so I thought, “why not”.
If you are not sure what Salonpas is, it’s the first (and actually only) over the counter pain relieving patch. The patches easy to apply and have a menthol smell to them. I totally envision covering my body with them for the full marathon in October. (Not really, I’m sure that’s frowned upon!) I have found them at Rite Aid and they are really not that expensive.
Next I had to put together a team – that was easy – the girls! Then I thought it would be even better if I extended the team to not just the girls, but to include the husbands as well. How cool is that to have 4 married, running couples? Honestly, I didn’t ask the girls or the husbands to be part of the team. I figured they wouldn’t turn down anything free. So, I submitted a short summary and a picture – now keep in mind I had to use what I had and I didn’t really know when all 8 of us would get together and get a picture, so I just used the Maine Marathon picture that I had. At least it has 6 of us on it. (Sorry, Stacy and Scott – we’ll get a picture of the 2 of you soon!)
Then, guess what? Last weekend, UPS dropped off two boxes and when I opened them up….
What did we get? Each of us received:
- drawstring bag – it has a pocket on the front too
- 6 salonpas samples
Before I go, I need to share this picture of you. My husband is an identical twin and they work together. Most days (and I really do mean most days) they dress the same. Must be a twin thing!
