I won! I won! I won!

I recently freaked out when my most favorite blogger in the whole world emailed me because I was a finalist for her finish line photo contest. As it turns out,


People said such nice things when they voted for my picture! Here are a few of my favorites!

Everyone was so nice though! I loved reading all of the comments!

The anticipation the arrival of my goodie bag nearly killed me but it was completely worth it! I squealed with excitement as I pulled out each item from the package! My husband was quick to document the process with pictures. Here’s a replay of how it went down:

I opened the package, looked and said, “EEE! I don’t know what’s in here but I already see pink and purple!! It’s gotta be good! How did she know I love bright colors?!” (side note, take a look at my shirt in these pictures. Clearly I love brightly colored clothing)

I pull out the Injinji socks:  YAY! How did she know these are my favorite running socks?!

I pull out the Yurbuds: “YES! I needed new Yurbuds!” (mine fell apart during my last half marathon due to operator negligence.)

I pull out the Brooks compression calf sleeves: “I’ve always wanted calf sleeves!” (the Hubs is happy about these as well since he’s had to rub my calves the last few days! This will DEFINITELY be used during my upcoming marathon training!)

I pull out the Honey Stinger chews: “EEE!! I was reading about these today when researching fueling products during marathons and I was hoping to try them!” (Another item that will DEFINITELY be used during marathon training!)

I pull out the Clif Shot Bloks: “Yes! These are awesome!” (Yet another item that will be used during marathon training!)

I pull out the Oiselle bag: “Oh my gosh! I’ve always wanted something from Oiselle! I LOVE it!” (Oiselle has great products!)

And finally the ASICS running shirt: “Oh I NEED a new running top!” (seriously. I’m tired of cycling through the same three running tops.)

I love, love, love my running goodies! 

Here’s a better look at the swag!

And to top it off, Janae wrote me the sweetest letter! It sersiously almost made me cry! I’ve followed Janae’s blog for a long time and it’s surreal to know that she sent me amazing running goodies just because of my story! So thank you, thank you, thank you a million times, Janae!!! All of the products will be greatly used and appreciated!

Let’s talk it over!
 – If you could have race swag from any company, what would it be?
 – Have you ever won something from a blog contest or giveaway? If so, what was it?

    Oh my gosh, how stinkin' adorable are you? I don't even know how I've missed your blog until now, but then again, I read way too much. lol…

    Congratulations on the win, soooo exciting, and all the more so when it's THE blogger you love! Geez, I love so many brands, but Mizuno would be tops for running kicks & Oiselle for their gear because I can't find it locally.

    Aww, you're so sweet! Thank you! I'm glad you found my blog 🙂 Yes, I'm still on a winner's high from all my gifts 🙂 I LOVE Mizuno's shoes too! I haven't tried anything from Oiselle yet, but I'm hoping to soon! Do you have any favorites you can suggest?
