The marathon is only 8 days away and over the last week I have been in contact with some of my favorite companies to set up an amazing marathon fundraising giveaway for all of you! I would love to get closer to our goal of raising $2,620 for Project R12, therefore, my hope is that most of you will donate to our efforts. However, it is not mandatory for you to donate to enter the giveaway, but you will get extra entries if you do!
If you donate $10, the minimum amount Crowdrise accepts, then you can get 2 extra entries. If you donate any amount above $10, you get the 2 entries for the $10 and then 2 more entries for the amount above $10. To keep it fair for those who cannot/do not want to donate and to help spread the word I have added the option to tweet about the giveaway everyday for a total of 2 entries each day.
If you don't want to enter the giveaway, but really all of the prizes are amazing so you should enter, you can still donate on our fundraising page, here.
Thank you to all who have already donated, and to those who I hope will donate!
Now on to the wonderful items included in the giveaway:
Gen2 Aspaeris Pivot Shorts
I think most of you know how much I adore pivot shorts, I wore them today during our last long run of this training cycle, and one of you could win a pair of Gen2 shorts of your own! I own five pairs, four Gen1 and a pair of Gen2, and I can attest that they are amazing.
Wearing my Gen1 during our last half marathon
Even if you don't win a pair of shorts, you can still purchase any of their items for 40% off until the end of May using the discount code, SPRING, at checkout (you need to log in to their site to use the code).
$50 Tommie Copper Gift Card
Tommie Copper makes a variety of products ranging from calf sleeves (love them!), shirts, gloves, tights, etc. They have a bunch of fun new colors and if you win this item you will have $50 to spend on anything that your little heart desires. Personally, I love my calf sleeves, knee sleeves, tights and half finger gloves (for interpreting soreness). Mike also has a pair of the men's shorts and he loves those too!

Malya Rosa Headband
Recently one of my Reach the Beach teammates, Stephanie, contacted me about trying out one of her headbands for her new company Malya Rosa. The headbands are great for working out, running or even work attire. The ribbons that Malya Rosa uses are cute, fun and can be coordinated with any outfit.
I wore mine to work the other day
Malya Rosa also gives back by donating 5% of every purchase to Dress for Success and The Girl Effect. One person will have the opportunity to win one headband of their choice.
$35 Road ID Gift Card
For my birthday last month, my friend Crystal asked me if I wanted a Road ID. Since I never run with a phone, even when I am not running with Mike, I thought it would be a good idea to have one! Road ID has plenty of options to chose from to accommodate any athlete, and then your family and friends don't have to worry about you as much while you are out working up a sweat! If you win this item you will get a $35 gift card that will help pay for your own Road ID.

4-Pack of Nuun
Again, I think it is easy for anyone to see that I love Nuun! I have tried almost all of the flavors and I have loved most of them (I'm not big on orange)! Mike and I turn to Nuun when we need to hydrate and replenish our electrolytes, but we don't want any extra sugar. We even turned my mom into a Nuun lover! The winner of this item will be able to pick a 4-pack of their choice, personally I would go with a 4-pack of one of their new flavors: cherry limeade, lemonade or watermelon. Yum!
I think it's safe to say we like it
Again, there is no purchase (donation) necessary to enter/win, but any donations are greatly appreciated. The giveaway will remain open until midnight on May 20th and the five winners will be announced later that day.
