Haha, yes, this song has reappeared on my running playlist as of late – definitely another case of loving certain genres of music only when running/working out 😉
But really, I am SO excited because lately I have been winning some really cool giveaways! THANK YOU so much to all of the sponsors for these awesome prize packs!
I was so excited to win this giveaway because I am a long-time fan of coconut water! Remember my post about it, back in the day? I was still learning about it and was introduced to it via my Bikram Yoga studio back in Orlando. Here in Charlottesville, Vita Coco is the coconut water of choice and I have treated myself a few times, post-class, to a nice drink of coconut water. After winning this giveaway, I have a nice supply whenever I feel like I need a little extra hydration – I even brought some to work to store in the fridge 🙂
One of my favorite running gear companies, Oiselle is celebrating April as ’26 Days of Marathon’ and on April 4, they announced a twitter giveaway that involved tweeting your favorite marathon mantra for a chance to win a Race Day Kit! It included a $10 Starbucks Gift Card, a $50 Oiselle Gift Card, Indigo Oiselle Armwarmers, Headband, Gu and A Tube of Nuun! I was so stoked to be one of the two random winners and can’t wait to choose some new Oiselle gear – I am thinking Distance shorts will be on the list?
…and then just this morning…
Meg at Run Fit Kin hosted a giveaway to celebrate her transition to a self-hosted blog and offered up two prize giveaway packages to include the sweet new Oiselle shirt you see pictured above (the purple or the yellow), a tube of strawberry lemonade nuun, Sharkies energy chews and YES one of the amphipod handheld water bottles that I just blogged about last week! Can you feel my excitement right now?!
The coolest thing about winning giveaways, of course, is the fact that you can make so many new connections. From finding a new blog to follow, to learning about great new products and even discovering new contacts by reading the comments and tweets of others spreading the news of giveaways, it’s a fun process.
Good news for y’all, though – I think I am going to take a little hiatus from entering too many more giveaways because, hey, ya gotta spread the wealth, right? Oh, wait – I did enter Melody’s Marathon Must-Haves too…so go enter that now, if you haven’t already!!
What’s the coolest think you’ve ever won?
