A RunningLuv Giveaway!!!

I’ve hinted at several giveaways this month leading up to my very FIRST marathon March 1st!! 🙂 Well, we’ve got one down with two more to go…

I love their business phrase 🙂

The second giveaway is Valentine’s Day inspired. It’s from an up and coming business called runningluv (they launched in 2013!) and they specialize in fashionable running towels. This product appealed to me because I’m a sweater and I also get really bad cotton mouth when I run :/ I usually end up pulling up my shirt or reaching for my sleeve to wipe–not something I like doing while I’m running.

This towel is designed to wrap around your hand so you don’t have to have a grip on it while you run–so you’re hands free. A major plus as the last thing I want to do while running is hold something. The runningluv towel has different options of wear and when you purchase a product, they send an insert with pictures of how you can use the towel. I love this.

Such a great detail

Such a great detail

So you can wear it with the towel hanging, wrapped around your wrist, or in a fancier wrap across your hand (I chose this method). There’s also have a tutorial on their website–Again, another great detail.

I used the towel on one of my 10k Tuesday runs and during my long 20 miler this past Saturday. Both times I was so glad I had it. During my 6.2 run, I mostly needed it to wipe the sweat of my brow. On my long run, yeah…I needed it to get the grossness of cotton mouth out.

How I wore mine.

How I wore mine.

It was funny because before my run club began that morning’s long run, a buddy had a regular hand towel hanging from her hydration pack. I asked her what it was for and she said for sweat and cotton mouth. I lifted up my hand and showed her the runningluv towel and she said, “I knew someone would think of something like that! I hate messing with my pack trying to get my towel!”

The runningluv towel is super soft and is a bamboo/organic cotton terry blend and the band is a moisture wicking lycra/nylon blend. The band stretches to fit most hand sizes.

There are quite a few colors and designs to choose from too!

So…..One lucky reader will receive a FREE runningluv towel of their choice!!! Check out their website to see which one you’d choose : D

The One Month Countdown Begins {and a giveaway!!}

You guys…I’m running a marathon in a month!!

It's really gonna happen!

It’s really gonna happen!

It’s so crazy; even after months of training I still can’t believe I’m doing this!

So, because this is the last month and I’m beyond excited about this, I’ll be doing a couple of giveaways to get the party started leading up to March 1st–THE BIG DAY!

One of my favorite products I’ve purchased have been my Road ID bracelets. The first one I bought is the the Wrist ID Slim. This bracelet is a silicone stretchy band and the ID allows for 5 lines of information.

I ended up ordering a too small size so when I went to the website to order just the bracelet in a bigger size (you can interchange the bracelet and use the same ID–a really cool feature!), I decided to go with the Wrist ID Sport. I like that the Sport is hydrophilic–good with water–and considering I sweat like a horse when I run, this was a definite plus. It doesn’t irritate my skin at all.

This bracelet allows for six lines of information on the ID plate. I like that you can include a quote if you want. Mine is my running mantra, “My race. My pace.”

There are so many cool colors to choose from too; of course I went with purple 🙂

The Road ID is probably the #1 running accessory I recommend to people. You never know what can happen where ever you might be. If you’re biking, swimming, running, hiking, or just going out for a walk, this simple bracelet could be extremely helpful in an emergency situation.

Another reason Road ID is so awesome is that it’s implemented a new new mobile app which is meant to supplement the physical Road ID wrist band. It allows your friends and family to track your running, cycling, hiking, walking and basically any outdoor adventures in real time and has a stationary alert system. How cool is that??

So, because I’m super pumped about my upcoming marathon and because I love my own Road ID, I’m giving away $35 of credit to use towards YOUR OWN ROAD ID. Yes, whatever you want from their website!! They have other products too besides bracelets–take a tour and look around! What would you do with $35?? 😀
