Welcome to the Run Like A Mother 12K's of the Holidays, where, in addition to sitting through bad poetry recited under low lighting, you can win 78 products that will improve, compliment or otherwise enhance your running. Emphasis on your: We're hoping that if you win something, you go against the December grain and keep it for yourself. (We know you definitely deserve it.)
Here's how the 12K's works:
1. Each day from today until December 19, we are giving away some running-related items. Today is 12 of the same thing; tomorrow is 11 of something else (oooh, the suspense!); Friday is 10 similar goodies (can you even contain the excitement?). Until we hit the 19th, when we give away one whopper of a prize. (Not even kidding: It's a doozy.)
2. The winners for each day will be announced the following day. So tomorrow, I'll post the names and comments of today's 12 winners. If you win, you need to e-mail us at runmother at gmail dot com with your address and other pertinent info with 48 hours. (I'll remind you of this with every list of winners.) If we don't hear from you within two days, we'll pick somebody else for the slot.
3. I'll pick the winners using random.org. And you can only win once.
4. As always, you'll have to answer a running-ish question to enter.
So to kick it off, we're giving away Flex-Power Active Woman, a pain relief cream both SBS and I slather on our muscles regularly; we love the warming sensation and the fact it's made with arnica, green tea, aloe, MSM, & glucosamine--all good stuff that can only benefit overtired, tight muscles. I usually treat my hamstrings and lower back to it after a run before I park myself at my desk for too long.
Twelve winners will pop open a four-ounce tube of Flex-Power Active Woman, a $22 value, plus a handful of travel-sized packets, which are a godsend on long plane flights, I can easily testify. (And the light smell, decidedly not Ben Gay, doesn't overwhelm your seatmates.)
In order to win, we want to know this: what's your preferred way to relax? A run, a bath, a date with "What Not To Wear"?
p.s. One more winner for today: Lois, who takes home the sweet and coveted Sierra Designs Gnar jacket. We received a record 442 entries: woo for motivated women! Lois' December goal is this: I’m just coming off a hip and foot injury, so I’m using the new month to ease back into things. My goal is to walk or run twice a week for the month and to do exercises/stretches for my injuries every day.
