It is a GU’d day here at Barefoot Neil’s workshop…

Did that make sense? anydeal…

I thought it was a dream. I was running a barefoot half marathon. the weather was perfect, road was smooth and I was feeling fine. I was fully fuelled on my favourite GU: Tri-berry with a Lemonlime Brew chaser, and I came across the finish line and thought - ‘that was my last GU!, Dang… oh well I’ll pick some up before my next run. Now it was time for my press junket regarding my amazing barefoot run… Next Question!

Ding-dong… Dangit… a dream. So the doorbell woke me up from an AMAZING nap, the dogs were barking like idiots, Andrew was screaming like the house was on fire. Needless to say, I was a little disoriented when I saw  just the flash of a red and white jacket headed back down the path. Huh, weird. Just as I was going back into the house, Andrew steps outside the door and picks up a little red box off the step. What is it?

It says:

Merry Christmas, enjoy the energy on the run. Your friend, S.C.

huh.

I brought the box into the house and with clatter and a shatter I pulled the ribbon off it, and WOW, Merry GU-smas to ME!! *WoOt*

I am good for a while for the GU’s! Nice!

That was good news. You want to know what the better news is? There was a note in the bottom of the box. It said:

PAY IT FORWARD

What the heck!?

OoOOOOOHHH! or should I say Oh HOHOHO! I get to give away a Xmas pack of GU! Yeah! Now we’re talkin!

OK, to the WINNER: A 6 pack of Vanilla Gingerbread GU, and a variety of other GU goodies! Shipped right to your door! Mercans and Canadians can play!! *WoOT*
