The Summer of Winning

I had the distinct fortune of winning two awards this summer.

The first was during 826 Seattle’s Dance Your Cash Off fundraiser where I won the “Knows All the Words to Run DMC’s ‘Walk This Way’ Song” for… can you guess?? … Knowing all the words to Run DMC’s ‘Walk This Way’!!

As a prize I received two kitchen towels and a set of six bowls from Anthropologie!

The second award I won this year was for USA Ultimate’s Coach of the Year for Washington State’s Open Division! Although I didn’t receive a plaque or ribbon, I am so much more proud of this award! Each coach in the league votes and this is the second year in a row that a Franklin HS coach has won the esteemed award! (Shout-out to Doug Sumi, my co-coach, for winning this last year!)

And even bigger reward was that four of our kids at Franklin won First and Second All-State awards! Big shout-out to Henry P. and Tiffany P. for winning 1st Team selections and to Mario L. and Christian T. for winning 2nd Team selections!

What about you? What’s an award or recognition that you’re most proud of?
