I am pretty devastated. I had ordered a running skirt from Running Skirts (obviously) as soon as I found out about the sale. I have heard some great stuff and I was thrilled. I sent my payment and waited. 9 days later (June 24) I got a "your order has shipped" email. YIPPEE!!!
Then I waited. And waited. And waited. So, yesterday (July 5) I emailed to check on the package and today I got an email that I had a refund from them . While I appreciate that, I'm a little confused as to how it was there, it was shipped, then it wasn't, then it was out of stock, then I had a refund. I totally understand the first come, first serve, but this has me a little puzzled......and without a running skirt at that. :(
But, on the note of GREAT (fantastic even) customer service, let's look at Garmin. I got a Garmin (who is nameless still...need to do something about that) for Christmas from my dad. About a month ago, my running partner and I (he bought his 2 weeks after mine) both had problems with batteries and not acquiring signal. Like all of a sudden at the exact same time. So, we both called customer service and were instructed to send them back to be reprogrammed and if that didn't work they would send a new one. (!wow!) So, I mailed mine regular postal service on a Monday, he mailed his UPS on a Tuesday. The very next Monday and Tuesday we received our watches in the mail good as new. What AWESOME customer service. I was so excited!
I also tried Body Glide for the first time ever and loved it. I am developing a blister on one of my toes. I think they heard I was starting my half training this week.
On that subject, day 2 is complete. I got in a great run at lunch today. Just 3 miles, but they felt really good. Mile 3 was totally in the rain....as in pouring, not a drizzle, however, that was preferable to hot as hell. By the way, I look HOTT this afternoon (if you like drowned rats). (lol)
Finally, I got the best unexpected happy Friday. I think in my last 5K recap I talked about our WW member who was trying to beat her time from her first 5K. I had went back and jogged with her to the finish cheering her on. Well, she wrote about her WW journey and her running journey in the sweetest write-up and then thanked me in it for cheering her on and inspiring her. I was all teary eyed! She wants to send it to a magazine or newspaper or something. I was so proud of her.
Anywyay, I'm long winded enough. I'm going to go drown my running skirt disappointment in Skinny Cow. Wish me luck.
