The Armadillo's were SWEET to Milestones Jewelry

And I thought this past weekends race was going to be a dud as far as sales go.............WRONG AGAIN!! The Armadillo 5K and 1 mile fun run was our best race so far. The crowd was great and the race directors FANTASTIC, thanks so much to Jason and Colleen. There were only two vendors, us and a new energy drink. There were around 600 runners and they LOVED our Jewelry. In one of my past post I expressed concern that the economy might hurt sales of our higher end Swarovski Crystal line but those were the biggest sellers this weekend. We met some of the nicest people. But then runners are always the best, especially when they are on their endorphin overdrive after completing a race. So we finally got a super great one under our belt. We have two races this weekend, "The Chasco Challenge" on Saturday in New Port Richey and "Max Bayne" on Sunday at Ft. Desoto, FL. That one is a 10 miler and 5K. I have my photo shoot for my Jewelry for the website this Thursday and then it's off to the races to get my on line shopping and website up and running.
Christine and I did our long run this past Sunday; 10 miles. I took today off to do business and recover from my aching ankle. But tomorrow I'll do my scheduled 5 miles and then hopefully have a very strong week of running. Only 2 weeks until the 10K Iron Girl and then I turn 49 on April 9th. Geez...where do the years go? I'll be celebrating my birthday by working our first Triathlon expo at Bill Jackson's sporting goods in St. Petersburg. We are out and about almost every week; some weekends Christine has us booked for 3 events. Well you just gotta pound the pavement when you are launching a new business.
Thanks for tuning in.....
Gotta Run,
