First Giveaway Day!

So, yesterday was an epic fail of a day thanks to Benadryl and my rumbly tummy. Not today! Today is productive and awesome.

Case in point: today is Run Stronger Every Day‘s first ever Giveaway Day!

If you don’t already know by now, I love running gear. And when I love something, I love to good gossip about it. I mean, my brother told me he was coming to NYC and I immediately made him an appointment with Dr. Shure for while he’s here. Just a little family bonding over some realignment. You know, normal stuff.

Sparkling first thing in the morning!

Anyway, something new that I love is Sparkly Soul headbands. I love them so much I bought one for Mrs. Obi-wan and we sported ours at the gym together while I was in Colorado over break. We looked fabulous, if I do say so myself, and they seriously don’t move. Today’s giveaway is in honor of Mrs. Obi-wan and how she brings Sparkle to my Soul.

So, this giveaway is actually a giveaway in that you are nominating someone else to win a Sparkly Soul headband. In order to nominate someone, you must do the following:

  1. Tell me about the person who brings Sparkle to your Soul in the comments section of this post. This is the person who will win the headband for being such a Sparkling inspiration to you (so if you want to be nominated, ask a friend to enter you).
  2. Either subscribe to my blog or follow me on Twitter and then email me at to tell me you’ve done so (if you already do both, retweet this link and mention my handle in the tweet).

Example, if I wanted to nominate my Mom to win the headband, I would write this:

My Mom: the Sparkle you bring to my Soul is unlike any other. Thank you for believing in me, for cheering me on, for pushing me and for teaching me to fight like hell for what I want, what I love and what I believe in. You are an inspiration to me.

The contest starts today and goes until next Thursday (2/9/12) at midnight EST. You MUST complete both #1 & #2 to be entered in the contest. The winner will win a Sparkly Soul headband (choice of color and style, of course) and will be announced on Friday, February 10th so be sure to check back to see who won!

So many colors! Which will you choose?

I can’t wait to read all about the people who inspire you and add Sparkle to your life! Don’t forget to tell them you’ve nominated them so they can read about how fabulous they are on the Internet 🙂

Now go out and run!

  4. My friend Eileen M! Ei is the one responsible for changing my whole fitness outlook- she introduced me to one of my favorite exercise classes (which I am now hooked on) and encouraged me all the way through so that I feel totally comfortable in challenging myself everyday. She also signs up for pretty much every Groupon fitness deal that I send her way so that I don’t have to sweat it out alone. She deserves some sparkle in her life!

  5. I’d like to nominate my friend Becky Hanger who taught me that stopping on a run to take a picture is ok – it’s the enjoyment and covering the distance that matters not the constant motion. She’s run 10 marathons and her fastest (NYC 2010) was after becoming a mom of 2!

  6. Lindsay Crawley: She is my the most caring, truthful and sincere person I have ever met! We went through school together to become teachers and when I was thinking about giving up she helped me everyday and pushed me through it. I wouldn’t have made it through without her! Lindsay has always been there for me… Good days and Bad days! She’s honestly just the Best!! She definitely deserves sparkle in her life 🙂 Plus she loves to wear headbands!!

  7. I nominate my friend Kathy. Today she just completed a Metric Century on her stationary bike….just for the hell of it! She’s also an inspirational runner and one smart cookie. She deserves some sparkle!

  8. My mom! She has always been so supportive of anything I’ve ever done and always gives me great guidance or advice when I need it (whether I think I do or not).

She supports me no matter what I do – whether she agrees or disagrees with my decisions and she even flew 5000 km to be here for the birth of her first grandson.
