Yesterday I was alerted to the fact that the Naperville Half Marathon price increased by $10 to $85. Then you got a coupon code to get $10 off this morning to register??? No announcement in the price change either. Just poof there it is.
On their Facebook page they removed ALL of the negative posts. Removed their first announcement of the prices, removed the race directors crappy response and they removed the ability to post on their FB page ( I couldn't find a way to). I can't believe how ballsy/shady this race has been.
Registration started this morning. Like I said in my original post that this race would sell out. As of right now (1pm) they say they are 75% of the way to being sold out. I was right on that. They knew there crowd and I bet the RD is kicking himself for caving on the price. I am not willing to shell out that much for a first time event only 30 mins from my house that's in Naperville. I know one person who has signed up for it because she lives like 5 mins from it so she'll be my guinea pig to ask questions in November.
We were asked last week to come to our daughters school this morning for a presentation. It was a surprise for her. Well honestly I didn't think it would be an academic award because they don't do it for 1st graders yet. But this was a character award. When she saw her Daddy and me walk in she was super surprised to see us!
This part of the post is for women. Men you can be done reading here if you want. Rest is all woman folk talk.
I spent over an hour waiting to see my Dr today and when I got to see him I peppered him with questions to make it worth while for my $25 copay. I was there for not a real visit but to ask about permanent birth control and the option for a partial hysterectomy. I think my Dr doesn't necessarily believe that I am done having kids and is trying to steer me away from surgery. After my csection with my youngest they found fibroids on the outside of my uterus and that's why I asked about the partial hysterectomy. I have no idea if the fibroids would be causing off and on back pain and the back spasms I had during the marathon last year. The only thing that would mess this all up is that when I can get it scheduled. He said he was scheduling into March. Right smack in the middle of half marathon training. hmmm I have to think about it.
Anyone else have a partial hysterectomy?
