Race week and Giveaway winner!

It's Kristin.

This weekend is the SLC half-marathon and I'm hoping my body gets over this sluggish period by Saturday.  This will be our first race this year!  My husband Matt is all signed up and registered but not ready and having some knee issues so that registration may go straight down the drain.  Oh well!  He's thinking of just starting the race and running as long as he feels good.  But dropping out mid race may be complicated.  How do you get back to the car?  Walk?  :)  Danna and her mom and sister are running it too.  I've heard this race is not very organized so that should be interesting.  
  My friends, I have a new relationship in my life.  The Strassburg sock.  I have been wearing it every night for almost a week.  I have not yet reached my full conclusions on the sock but will be in-touch.  I have also been inspired by this blog and am considering running barefoot after this race!  Crazy as it sounds, I think it may help my PF!

Thanks for all those who participated in the giveaway!  I love the running/blogging community.
As for the winner- random.org selected comment # 18- and the winner is:  
Mikelle!!!  
Congratulations!!  I'm sure you're going to love all this stuff, since I know you're a poor college student/runner.  One load of laundry soap is solid gold in college, right?  Ha ha!

XOXO

Congrats to Mikelle! Great giveaway. Kristin-check out www.barefootjosh.com also. He has lots of good info. I wanted to get to bf also, but just walking around my house bf seems to kick up the PF, so I am back into my dumb orthotics/shoes 'round the clock. Good luck with it!

What the HECK??? Mikelle? Well, I always knew she was the favorite...

Karin said...

j/k. Tell me if you like that weird sock. Maybe I'll try it--does it help PREVENT PF, or does it just treat PF?

congrats to the winner!

I have wondered about those socks as I used to get calf cramps almost nightly. It took regular massages to get rid of that for me

Good luck Saturday! I know you'll be amazing!

I know, and what's so shocking about the fact that Mikelle won is that she only had one entry- other people had like 5 entries!

mom said...

Yea Mikelle! Wish I could win something. Sheesh. Oh well, enjoy.

Kar said...

That's crap! I did 3 entries. I think it was rigged...

Mikelle said...

That's beautiful. :) I've never won a contest before!
