1. Throwing out a little teaser here. I have a give away coming up on Monday. I will have your usual chances to earn entries into my giveaway: ie, like my fb page, follow my blog, etc. The biggest points/chances to earn entries will be submitting picture(s) of you running in a costume. Tis the season for such fun activities (unless you are like me and any day is a reason to run in a costume, just for fun) so grab your camera, go for a run or race and get ready to send me some great pictures.
2. Speaking of costumes and races, I am running the Screaming Pumpkin tomorrow night. I have been very, VERY good at resting this week. I've done easy mile days for the most part of the week. Only last night did I get a solid run in with my girlfriend (and becoming a secondary running partner) Julia. We had our last running of the year with Sole Sisters, a group that the local running store hosts. Of course, who can pass up girl time and running AND food out afterwards? Not me! Anyway, Screaming Pumpkin.....last year I went and ran as a fully dressed Christmas tree. I won first prize in the contest ($150 to the running store....oh yeah baby!). When I was up getting my prize they asked if I would be back again next year and as what. Without even thinking I said the first thing that came to mind..."I'm going to be the Easter Bunny!" Well, fast forward a few months and I did come across and actually run in a full fledged bunny costume for the Jelly Bean virtual run. I've toyed around many ideas of what I race in on Friday and I decided to be true to my word and I will be running a full marathon in said costume.
3. Speaking of giveaways, I thought I'd mention one that I'm aware of that is going on. I'm not entering it, but thought I would share the love by telling you all about it. Too Tall Fritz is another great blogger that I have met through Team Tough Chik (only 4 more days to join to team if you are interested. don't say I didn't warn you!). I've never met her in person (I hope to someday), but from what I know about her & through her blog she seems pretty freakin' amazing. So hop (get it...bunny....hop....hahahahahaha) on over to her blog and check out her giveaway.
