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!
