OUa(L)’s Out of the Closet (A GIVEAWAY!)

I suppose this means it’s finally time to use that Groupon I bought MONTHS ago for Bikram yoga.  Here’s hoping I don’t evaporate and/or shrivel into dust and blow away.

… Or does it mean it’s finally time to do a GIVEAWAY???

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

To honor B finally finding out about my little year-long secret blog (and foiled original plan) let’s spend a little of his money and do a giveaway!

(this obvs means that I was not contacted and/or compensated by any of the following companies to blab about their products.)

The Goods :

  • Waterbottle (similar to one shown)
  • 1 can each of FRS Low-Cal energy drink  –  Citrus Pomegranate & Peach Mango
  • 1 bag FRS chews  –  choice of pomegranate blueberry or pineapple mango
  • 1 box G2 packets  –  perfect for refilling your waterbottle with during long runs (bc plain water fountain water sucks)
  • 2 Clif Bars  –   chocolate chip & crunchy PB
  • 1 pack Strawberry Shot Bloks
  • 1 copy (not illegally pirated, fyi) of Girl Talk’s new album All Day
  • And of course… My pre-run fuel of choice  –  Snickers!

If these goodies won’t get you jazzed about your next run, there’s no hope for you.  Pick up knitting or something.  Actually I think I’m going to copyright all this and market it as the ‘YOUR BEST RUN EVER GIFT BASKET’.  Just in time for racing season!

How to Enter :

  • Leave a comment…  Telling me I’m pretty and Kenyan-fast may or may not affect the “random” drawing
  • Tweet about it, Facebook about it, Blog about it, Send a chainletter to 10 friends and instruct them to send to 10 and them to 10 about it…  Each worth one additional entry  (Please leave an additional comment for each)
  • Email me a super juicy secret you’ve been keeping from your spouse/significant other/family/best friend/dog… Additional entries will be issued based on level of juiciness

Contest will close Friday 2/25 at midnight PST.  Winner will be announced here and also contacted by email.  I love you foreigners, I do, but for shipping reasons this is only open to US residents.

Good luck :)

  1. I went to YSU with you! I don’t think we actually knew eachother, but you look very familiar and I remember B! I have no idea how I even found your blog, but your page really inspires me… I’m training for my first full marathon in October.

    Oh yeah You are “Kenyan-fast!” :)

    Keep up the good work!

  3. ok, you’re hot lady…and faster than Kenyans. in fact, after taking my mini-blog break, i reemerge to find you all skinny and wedding-ready…MONTHS ahead of time. you put me to shame. i think you need to keep the snickers and eat them yourself. yep. it’s a plan…followed by some mallows.


  4. I’m mega-impressed by your 5w2m plan! I can’t wait to see how it goes… here’s to an injury-free super-fast marathon coming up!

    I LOVE Snickers… back in hs I used to have one for lunch every day… like, the regular sized ones… probably not too good for me… whatev though. :)


  5. just a shout out from cleveland! soooo lucky to have skipped out on this weather… it is horribly cold, per usual. ;)

    and you ARE super kenyan fast and verrrrry pretty!


  6. Lady, you better make me the winner. I LOOOOVE that you’re giving away GirlTalk. BEST. MUSIC. EVER. I went to GirlTalk in concert last month-was pretty much what I expected, a grungy dude with his MacBook hooked up to mega-speakers, with hundreds of sweaty, high college kids dressed in 80s garb rubbing up against each other….EuroRave meets 1985. LOVED it.


  7. you are so drop dead gorgeous one can’t wrap their mind around your true beauty. and screw the kenyans — you put cheetahs to shame!

    how’s that for layin’ the compliments on thick? ;)

  10. I just discovered your blog via skinnyrunner and you’re definitely one of the cutest little blondes I’ve ever seen and your list of glorydays races motivates me to be the best I can be at the gym :)


  11. I’m curious about frs too…I’d love to try! Plus I agree with the snickers too! Love the blog, keep up the great work! You beautiful runner bride to be you !


  12. Thanks to SR’s link, I just found your blog. Best wishes on your engagement.

    Can you teach me your tricks to be faster than a Kenyan….I am from Boston and would really like to beat them on year in the marathon. Maybe we can team up?


  13. I would love to win this goodie basket! I’m a newbie to running (as in I finally ran 1.25 miles without walking in 11:00 min for the first time since high school (!!) just this week), and it would be so awesome if I could try these products as I have no clue as to what would work for me. But I’m working on improving my running abilities and will hopefully become Kenyan fast like you! ;0)
