Running Skirts Virtual Skirt Basket ...

This November, I will be running the NYC Marathon with Team Grassroot Soccer, a fantastic organization who's mission is to educate, inspire and mobilize youth to stop the spread of HIV.

And as you probably know by now, I am a huge Running Skirts fan. At last count, I had 32 of their skirts, in addition to several tops and five pairs of RunLove Compression Socks. Basically, I am a walking billboard for the company (Note: I wore their white running skirt in the August 2011 issue of Runner's World).

With that said, it only seemed natural that I team up with Running Skirts to raise funds for Grassroot Soccer. Thanks to the generosity of the Running Skirts twins, Cindy and Christy, I have an AWESOME Virtual Skirt Basket to raffle off.

One VERY LUCKY winner will receive the following (winner's choice of size and color):
  • Top
  • Skirt
  • RunLove Compression Socks
  • Gear Bag
Pretty awesome, right? I know you don't want to miss out on this one. So, here's how to enter:

REQUIRED: Make a NEW donation to my NYC Marathon Fundraising HERE. For every $5 you donate, you will receive one (1) entry. If you have donated in the past, you MUST still make a NEW donation. However, your total number of entries will be based on the total amount you have donated (Example: $50 previously donated + a new $10 donation = $60 or 12 entries). Once you've donated, leave a comment to let me know the TOTAL amount you've donated.

BONUS ENTRIES:
  • Become a follower. Leave a comment
  • "Like" Racing With Babes on Facebook HERE. Leave a comment.
  • Follow me on Twitter HERE. Leave a comment.
  • "Like" Running Skirts on Facebook HERE and let them know I sent you. Leave a comment.
  • Follow Running Skirts on Twitter HERE. Leave a comment.
  • Repost this raffle on your blog, Facebook or Twitter (Be sure to include @tmbrunnerfirst and @running_skirts in your tweet). Leave a comment.
Entries will be accepted until Tuesday, August 30th at 11:59 p.m. Winner will be randomly selected and announced on Wednesday, August 31st.

This is a beautiful outfit!! I was just looking at this one last night. I want to get this to wear to the Nike Womens in October.

I love following you and everything you are doing. I think you are amazing and quite inspiring.

I just "follow"-ed your blog! I'm a new runner and have been reading for awhile, although this is my first time commenting. Reading your blog has been a great inspiration. I just signed up for my first Half Marathon and all I have to say is EEPS! And also -- WOOHOO! That pretty much sums up the excitement and bit of fear I feel about the whole thing. :)

Anyway -- I just bought my first RunningSkirts skort and it is AWESOME! I would soooooooooo love to have some more of their gear!!! THanks for the chance to win!
