200th Post & Blogaversary Giveaway

One year ago (this past Saturday was actually a year but I rarely post on weekends) we I started this blog and here are we today on our 200th post! I've been tossing around the idea of a giveaway or virtual run to celebrate this event on our blog. It seems like there are a lot of virtual races out there right now so I hate to throw another one in the mix during an already busy time for everyone. As I'm typing this I'm already thinking about a virtual race for Allan's birthday which is 4-20...

Some of my favorite posts from the past year:
  1. First post
  2. A Day in the Life 
  3. Marriage-What I've Learned in Two Years 
  4. Health & Fitness Goals 
  5. Favorite Childhood Summer Memories 
  6. 4th of July
  7. Outlet Shopping At Its Finest
  8. Our First Trip to Monte Sano
  9. Our World Vision Child-Edwin
  10. My First 10 Mile Run
  11. 30 Truths Worth Sharing
  12. My First Half Marathon
  13. All Things Blogging
  14. Suz's 12 in 2012
  15. Say OK to Being Selfish & Selfless

So with all that said it's GIVEAWAY time!!!


This bundle of goodies includes:
  • 8 packs of GU gels (I personally prefer GU chomps but I know several of you love gels)
  • a BondiBand 
  • Jillian Michael Hot Bod in a Box (Steph-I couldn't help but think of you when I bought this!)
  • a 13.1 sticker
  • 2 boxes of Mini Cow Tales
  • a Nathan Quick Draw Plus water bottle
You'll have until next Monday, March 19, 2012 (my mom's birthday) to enter and we will announce the winner on Tuesday, March 20, 2012 (Allan's mom's birthday).

In order to win just leave a comment. If you'd like to chime in on what your favorite post from this past year has been I'd love to hear it. If you want to earn bonus entries feel free to follow our blog or share this giveaway on your blog, facebook, or twitter (one additional entry per method of sharing).

Thank you, thank you, thank you for tagging along and following our little journey through life. God has brought some wonderful people into my life through this blog and I'm grateful to each and every one of you for the support and listening ear you've provided! I can only hope I've done the same for you.

I'll be back tomorrow with my good, bad, and ugly for the half marathon this past Saturday!

  2. Congrats on a year of blogging! I think my favorite post is your last one. I love love love that Allan is so supportive of you and helpful before and after races. My husband rarely goes to races and when he does he is no fun. I wish my husband was as supportive as yours! You are so lucky!

  32. Already a follower and you can never have enough GU's! Personally, I like to mix it up. GUs can get messy during a race, but chomps become work to chew and not attempt breathing in.
