Does anyone else remember to check their “other” inbox for Facebook messages about once every six months, and find all kinds of important/relevant messages that you definitely don’t want in a secret hidden inbox? If your answer is no, I’m sure you’re wrong, you just don’t know that this exists. Look into it, and enjoy your five messages from sexy Russian girls plus one or two messages from people you actually know or need to communicate with (Facebook channels messages from people you’re not “friends” with into this “other” inbox, and then never tells you).
Today I decided to check my “other” inbox, as I was trying to send a non-friend a Facebook message and they told me that I could send a message to their “other” inbox, or straight to their normal one for just $1! The two seconds of extra effort checking the “other” inbox turned out to be well-worth it, as it put me in touch with Uberthons, the group that offered to provide free timing to my timed mile last month!
It turns out that Uberthons was so inspired by my timed mile announcement, that they decided to build it up and work toward making it a regular event! I’m sure I can’t take full credit for this idea – Uberthons seems to be all about promoting fitness, and they’re a little more experienced than I am with creating these events. However, now that they’ve gotten the ball rolling, I’m hoping I can jump in and help anyway possible to get more people involved. For instance, right now I am promoting their next timed-mile event, in hopes of spreading my love of the timed-mile!
Make sure to check this one out – for one, I’ll be there. Also, free events are rare! This is a truly wonderful thing, and I encourage everyone to take advantage! For more on Uberthons, you can also check out their Facebook page.
