Sweat Your Thorns Off Giveaway PRIZES!

I'm back!  You can bet your buckaroos when I go on a blogging hiatus for more than 3-4 days it is because of something very very important those orange booty shorts at Hooters went on sale life, work, blah, blah, ran out of toliet paper, OLYMPICS! The good news is that I am still running - and you'll get a boring post all about that soon enough.  But first.....



Don't forget that the Virtual Sweat Your Thorns Off 5K is this weekend!  Run 3.1 miles as part of another run or all on it's own and you're in! I'll post a custom bib for you to print off on Thursday and any/all details then. Sign up on the original post here and be entered to win some wicked awesome prizes.  You don't have to run to win.

Prize number one!!! A free pair of shoes from onlineshoes.com!  Running shoes? Yep! Granola cruncher shoes? Yep! Jellies? Yep! (Do people still wear those?)  I'm buying them myself with a coupon, so I'm going to restrict it to $100 bucks.  No Jimmy Choo here, thank you very much.  But, I'll ship them to Tasmania if you want me to (thank you Olympic ceremonies for reminding me of that place!)

Prize number two - SALT!  More specifically, deliciously flavored electrolytes in the form of a 4 pack of Nuun and a Nuun water bottle!  I actually don't drink Nuun while running, but do ALL the time afterwards.  Mmmm, taste the rainbow.



Prize number three - a Clean Bottle with iPhone "runner" attachment!  I did a review for it a while back and I LOVE it.  Seriously, I've put literally hundreds of miles on mine (and am sort of bummed that you're getting one and not me....this one might get "lost in the mail". Kidding!!  Sort of).


Prize number 4 - Rock Tape! Rocktape, Rock Sauce, Phast Legs. I've honestly never tried it, (sounds like I will - let the body hair shaving begin) but not only is it meant for injury prevention, but also recovery.  Sign me up!


Prize number 5 - 110% Compression sleeves or socks!  When I posted that I was giving a pair of these away on twitter people went BONKERS about how awesome they are.  That has to be good, right? BONKERS!


Finally, Prize number 6 - Infinit Napalm (A gel for your fuel belt for long runs and races.) Brilliant!


So seriously, if you're wanting in on a chance for some of the loot - go sign up!  You don't have to run to have a shot at the prizes.....but come on.... running is fun!

I am looking forward to this, and to running virtually with a bunch of running buddies.

I have a 12K this day. It is going to kick my butt hard. Like 20+ min/mi uphill, they call Trail of Tears hard. I am looking forward more to the virtual 5K then the hilly in real life 12K.

Shoot! Nearly forgot about this! The giveaways = my motivation to put up a run recap soon (I usually drag my feet!). Doing it on Sunday. The run, I mean.

Hey!
Tasmania is not a country, its a state of Australia, (just like Hawaii is a state of the US) so there is no Tasmanian Team at the Olympics(though there are a couple of Tasmanians on the Australian Olympic team - rowing). Just so you know ;-)

Love, Love, LOVE Rock Tape. It works because it sticks! Even in the sweatiest conditions! Tried other stuff, but nothing short of my PT's tape sticks and holds like Rock Tape!
