my race day staples giveaway!

I have been contemplating a giveaway for a while. But, I wasn't really sure what direction to go in. So, I thought about it. Then, I thought about it some more. And I kept coming back to one thing - ME.

I mean, this blog is about Me. Me and my running. Me and my family. Me and all of my little quirks. Me and my obsessions. Me. Me. Me. Me. Me.

OK, you get the point.

Anyway, as a thank you for listening to me go on and on about myself, I am giving you the chance to win some of my favorite race day staples. (See how I brought that back to me?)



Here's what one lucky winner will receive:

1 pair of Reebok All Sport Socks in Pink Tye Dye

1 black Marcelle hair bow from my.little.pink.dots

2 packages of Jelly Belly Sports Beans (lemon-lime and orange)

2 tubes of Chap Stick (original and mint)


So, how do you enter? (One entry per comment)

1. Become a follower and leave me a comment.
2. Become a fan of my blog on Facebook HERE and leave me a comment.
3. Leave me a comment telling me what your race day staples are.
4. Post this giveaway on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, wherever and leave me a comment to let me know.
Contest ends on Sunday, February 7th.

I WANNA WIN! Why? Because I'm awesome (you're awesomer), I'm funny (you're funnier) and I wanna be just like you when I grow up. (Even though I'm like 8 years older than you.) So do an old lady a favor and lemme win some free schwag!

I am a simply kinda runner. Race day I usually don't require anything but I like to carry maple sugar candy (yeah I know!) with me. I had it my first marathon and now I usually carry it (and rarely eat it).

Oh, my Nike visor has seen nearly all of my 11 marathons. I just like it even though it doesn't smell so great anymore. You just can't wash a visor very well.

This is a really fun giveaway!

I still haven't done too much racing, but one of my race day (and training) staples is my heart rate monitor. I love wearing it - even if I don't peek until after the race. I've also started wearing lip balm. It keeps me less focused on how tired I am because my lips don't feel as dry.

Jill said...

Gu Chomps, ipod, Garmin! and of course...Something to hold my hair back!
