Run Pretty Far Giveaway (Because, I love you!)


Happy Monday, Friends!! Today, I am one week post-marathon and still feeling so much joy and gratitude from that milestone in my life, that there is really only one thing for me to do with that joy and that's share it with all ya'll!!  But, first, a little story...

If you don't already know, one (of many) of my life-loves besides running is discovering and supporting small, yet mighty, businesses. Growing up in a small town, my parents instilled in my siblings and myself the importance of supporting local business.  I still feel that way today. 

Big chain stores may be convenient, or even a little bit less expensive, but driving out of the way to enjoy a local diner or mom and pop shop is where you will find rewards far greater than food and merchandise.  You find loyalty, character, friendship, and a story about how that business came to be.
Thankfully, many small businesses have online stores, which is great for those of us who live out the middle of nowhere! In the course of my marathon training, I stumbled onto an online company called Run Pretty Far, and it has quickly become one of my favorites!  Not only does Jenn, the founder, have a fabulous line of fun clothing items, including tops and headbands, she also writes a thoughtful blog which highlights everything from her running adventures to motherhood. 

Since I personally own two shirts from Run Pretty Far , I've decided to let you in on the sweetness, by
 GIVING AWAY A T-SHIRT OR TANK TO ONE OF MY LUCKY READERS!!!!
To give you a peek at their awesomeness, I have selected a few of my favorites.  But, you can view the entire collection on their website (as well as other items such as head bands and i-phone covers!).
With summer on the way, this one is patio-perfect!!
Not a margarita fan?? How about cupcakes??!!
I love this tank.  It reminds me of the feeling that comes from running on the perfect day.
The logo tee is one that I own.  It's super comfy and super cute.  Winner!
Sunrise and sunset are two of the most visually spectacular times to run, and this beautiful tank captures  the essence of that!  This is the tank being worn by the model above.

HOUSEKEEPING:
- The giveaway will end one week from today (May 13, 2013).
- The winner will be contacted on that day and given the opportunity to select the t-shirt or tank of their choice!
- You can come back every day to sign up for a chance to win!
GOOD LUCK!!
