Goodie Bag Giveaway!! - CLOSED

So I started today on the right track for SBSD...Turbo Jam abs, seriously I am in love with this ab workout. Then I went to work. Got frustrated. Had two pieces of cake and a fun size pack of M&M's. Excellent. After that I decided I should clearly have more than enough energy for a good run... and I DID!!!

6 miles straight through no walking. I definitely have some cardio to get back, geez that was way harder than I remember but I did it and hopefully I burned off that cake and am back on my way to good abs.

Thanks for all the encouragement about the marathon. I think you're all a little nutz, but that's why I like you....and of course why I want to give you GOODIES!

I have been on a kick lately of telling you about great foods...that doesn't seem fair now does it.. you should be eating these great foods too!! So go here to enter my giveaway >>

Holly said...

Ooooh I'd love to win that book most of all! I'm just about to graduate as a dietitian and I want to specialize in sports nutrition and need to soak up everything I can!

Mel- Tall Mom on the Run said...

Question:

How did you get so many followers to your Blog? Do you get free product from companies? If so, how did you get started?

Yessssss please! Heaven in a bag!

Melissa said...

Great gift bag giveaway. You always manage to put together great giveaways and challenges.

Good news on the 6 miles! Isn't it crazy how the cardio can wane so quickly?

Melissa said...

Do you go on the same running route or do you change it up? if so, how do you plan out the route?

I am curious, I seem to go on the same routes and I am getting tired of them. I live by a alot of traffic, sucks!

tokelle said...

Awesome giveaway! I'm having a hard time enjoying my runs this week - maybe the goodies will help me feel the love!

Jess said...

Fun giveaway I want to win...Now I need to think of a good question.

Jess said...

Oh I know what my question is. How do you get all these great companies to give you goodies to test out and giveaway?

Betherann said...

Awesome giveaway! I want those bars. Mmmm... :D

Betherann said...

Here's my question comment: Have you always been a runner? Or did you come from a more sedentary upbringing and make the choice later in life to become active? Throw in a battle with anorexia to the latter, and you have my fitness story (up until this point, anyway!).

Andrea (Off Her Cork) said...

Awesome giveaway!! Wooott! :D

Anne said...

Wow, those are some great goodies!

Anne said...

My question: How far would you travel to get to a race?

jessica said...

1.) I always need food, so sign me up:)

jessica said...

2.) question: having traveled so much, do you wish you lived in a more fitness-oriented town, or do you like being in the "minority" around here?

aron said...

YAY for giveaways!!! i want allll that stuff :) i will link you to my blog too!

now to think of a question...

aron said...

JW said...

Tara said...

nice job on the run and good job on cracking out the ab work!!! all those goodies look yummy! :)

Tara said...

what is your carb of choice when fueling before a run?

KK @ Running Through Life said...

Great giveaway. I really need to learn to embrace carbs. I shy away from them and I know I shouldn't since I am running a ton per week. Any helpful insights you can share from the book?

IRJessica said...

Yay giveaway!! I've never had any of those- but I'm warming up for my first half marathon this year, so I will soon!

I keep hearing about ProWash, but haven't tried it yet. Must be worth it though with all I've been reading about it.

Jesse said...

Looking at the places you travelled to, and the places you want to go, Honduras sort of seems like the odd location in the group. Any particular reason you want to go there?

Emily N. said...

I think the most challenging part of balancing a healthy lifestyle is trying to eat socially with people who don't really have a healthy life style. that and trying to tell/find people that have a passion for exercise or running like you do. howd you get so far in your running is what i'd like to know.
