Win a FREE entry to the Madison Mini-Marathon

Yeah. You read that right.

But more on that in a bit.

In searching for  races to fill my training calendar this summer, I came across the Madison Mini-Marathon. Many of my friends have done this race in years past, and I’ve only heard positive things about the race. So last week, I put Madison Mini-Marathon on my “Maybe” list. One thing that intrigued me was the M2 Challenge, presented in connection with the Summerfest Rock ‘n’ Sole Half Marathon.

What’s the M2 Challenge? Basically, if you run both the Madison Mini-Marathon AND the Summerfest Rock ‘n Sole Half Marathon, you get a special two-event medal! I’m not one to turn down an extra medal. Plus, it’s free as long as you complete both races! EEK!

So guess what? I’m now registered for both races!!! I figure that the Madison Mini-Marathon will be a killer training run for the Lakefront Marathon, plus I have a bunch of friends running the race. It’s a win-win!

Oh yeah. About that giveaway.

I am so excited to announce that the organizers of the Madison Mini-Marathon have given me A FREE ENTRY TO THE RACE to giveaway here on my blog! How awesome is that? I know. Pretty damn awesome.

What do you have to do to win?

Well, as my long-time readers know, I am basically an open book. I’ve posted about losing my pants while running at the gym, asked you if you fart while exercising and have even written about what underwear to wear when working out.

Don’t worry, I’m not going to force you to share your most embarrassing workout moment (although that would be AWESOME. And please do share. I love those stories). What I want to know is:

What is the greatest piece of exercise/health/weight loss/running/fitness advice you’ve ever heard?

Submit your answer in a comment to this post by 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 7, 2012. I will pick a winner at random and reveal the winner on my blog on March 8th!

Good luck!

Disclosure: I received a complimentary entry to the Madison Mini-Marathon. I rule. Don’t hate.

This contest closed on 3/7/12 at 8 p.m. Thanks!

Giveaway: Dailymile Stickers!

When I finally ordered my Dailymile t-shirt, I harassed Kelly (aka @dailymile) about my missing stickers? I wanted to pimp out my life with DM. I owe my life to social media sites like Dailymile, so I’m always wanting to pimp them when I can.

Well, today I got a li’l white envelope packed with some Dailymile goodness! And I want to spread the love, so I’m going to share some of my Dailymile stickers with my blog readers (I haven’t decided how many… but there will be at least 4 up for grabs).

What do you have to do to enter this li’l giveaway?

Post a comment on this blog post telling me where you’ll put your DM swag. Bonus points if you post a picture of what will get the DM branding.

I’ll pick winners next week.
