Feeling lucky!

As a relative newbie to both the running and blogging worlds, I was happy to stumble across a number of terrific giveaways, and of course I HAD to enter to win some of these marvelous prizes.  How lucky I was, then, to win TWO of the first few that I entered!!  Many thanks to all of the bloggers out there who take the time and energy to review products, conduct the drawings and mail out the goodies!  When my blog grows up, it wants to do this, too!!

So check out my first win, these awesome running socks from WrightSocks, thanks to a great drawing from Jen at Running With The Girls:

And then I won these cool notebooks from Jamie, a/k/a Running Diva Mom!  My three daughters were fighting over them--I finally convinced them (I think) that maybe Mom deserves them for all my hard work training for the 10-Miler!  

Seriously, while winning stuff like this is incredible, what is even better about all the blogs I've been following is the advice, support, and fellowship that experienced runners share.  For a beginner runner, this is so, so helpful.  Thanks to all!!!!

Happy running!


  1. I'm so happy you got them and I really hope you enjoy those socks as much as I do!

    I 2nd your statement about sharing advice through blogs. I love this supportive running community.

  2. Yay! Awesome. So happy to have you as part of my running and blogging family!!! :)
