Now, on to the best giveaway ever...
Boy, am I ever excited for one of you!
Yesterday, after my crappy 18-miler, my spirits were lifted very high when I saw a brown box on my porch from none other than GARMIN. You all know I am as attached to my Garmin Forerunner as I am to cookies (and peanut butter, and ice cream). When I run, my Garmin is just as important to me as my running shoes.
But I don't have to tell you all this, because it's pretty apparent if you've been reading my blog. I couldn't contain my excitement as I opened the box and saw THIS:
Now, I know you don't care about all this, because you just want me to get to "the best giveaway EVER!" (read that in an Oprah voice, it's better). Garmin is allowing me to share the love with my readers, because they also sent me THIS:
Garmin Forerunner 210 with heart rate monitor. And it's CUTE, with teal accents!
I am SUPER excited to be able to give this 210 away to one (very lucky) Runs for Cookies reader. Since I imagine this will be a pretty popular giveaway, I'm only leaving it open for 36 hours--you can enter until Thursday, April 19th at 5:00 a.m. E.S.T.
The only "rules" are that you must be either a follower of or subscriber to my blog. I'm not saying this in order to get more subscribers, but to narrow down the field, so to speak; and I'm so sorry, but you must be in the U.S. or Canada to enter. And... this is not a requirement, but I'm asking nicely... if you already have a Garmin, I would love it if you would pass over this giveaway to allow someone who doesn't have one the opportunity to get one.
That said, here is how you can enter: first, check out the Forerunner page and leave a comment here, telling me which feature you are most excited about on the 210.
If you like, you can earn a "bonus" entry by using the creative part of your brain... ;) My Ragnar Relay team needs a name. And we're stumped! We want a name that is fun, creative, and somehow plays on the fact that we all used to be overweight. (An example of this would be "Gut Busters" or "Shrinky Dinks"--except we don't like those names!) So you can leave a second comment with a suggestion for a team name. FYI, there are 10 females and 2 males on the team.
That means you can have two possible ways to enter, with one comment each. Make sure that your name is somewhere on each comment so I know who you are.
GOOD LUCK! I wish everyone could win, I really do!
(FYI--If your comment doesn't show up right away, it could have been flagged as Spam. Don't worry, I will have to manually "okay" it for it to show up, and I will do that. DO NOT post more than 2 comments--1 per entry--please. I am deleting any additional comments to keep the drawing fair.)
