SLY Award recipient Kristen McGee left this comment on one of my recent posts about running, “There is another mom I like to walk with here, and I am thinking of convincing her to run a 5K with my in the fall (I figured that would be enough time to recover from baby #2…). We’ll see!”
As most of you know, I run regularly and have competed in completed several 5Ks. Now that I’ve discovered all of the boons of running, I can’t help but encourage my friends to give it a try.
As such, I’m happy to be hooking Kristen up with a $50 gift card to Dick’s Sporting Goods to help her on her way.
Perhaps she will pick out a performance tee, some great new kicks, or a super cute running skirt [click on each of the pictures to see more details]:
I also wanted to take a minute to tell Kristen (and you! – my readers!) about a special opportunity that you might be interested in:
Dick’s is currently hosting a Starting Lineup contest to find 10 people to test out new products for them in the coming year. You can check out all of the rules by clicking on that little button to the left (FYI…you do have to have a Twitter account to participate…another reason to sign up for a twitter account). The deadline is March 31st.
Even if you choose not to participate in the contest, you can still keep-up-to-date with all of the latest news related to Dick’s Sporting Goods by following on twitter: @dickssportcmo.
Oh, and Kristen? If you do decide to move forward with your plan (I hope you do! 5Ks are so much fun!), you might want to check out my past post: How to Train for a 5K.
WIN IT! One winner will receive a $50 gift card to Dick’s Sporting Goods. To enter, leave any topic-related comment on this post prior to Wednesday, March 24th at 11:59 p.m. All generic comments like “Enter me!,” “Love it,” and “Cool stuff!” will be disqualified.
Dick’s Sporting Goods has generously donated 2 $50 gift cards for this SLY Awards promotion – one for Kristen and one for the giveaway. I received no product or monetary compensation for this post. I’m just excited to celebrate Kristen and…you.
*UPDATE* The winner is #200 Sarah C. Congratulations!
