Michael’s AWESOME Giveaway

My Giveaway if finally here!  I had intended to post this on Thursday, but Blogger kept me from that.  Sorry for the Delay! 

I wanted to celebrate getting to 100 followers and to say THANK YOU to all of the AWESOME people out there who actually take the time to read my blog :)

Disclaimer:  The AWESOMENESS of this Giveaway is my opinion only.  I have not been paid to have this opinion.  The actual opinion of the AWESOMENESS of this giveaway may vary by individual.  Michael at Slowly Tri-ing is not responsible for anyone who may be disappointed by the actual amount of AWESOMENESS given away below.

What’s all this Great stuff?

First

·    A $20 Gift Certificate to Lift Your Sole.  They sell the most AWESOME jewelry.  Check out their website here and see what you might be interested in.  This is where I purchased Madi's necklace that we gave her after her first half marathon.



For all your running needs:

·     A Green Water bottle, because Green is my favorite color – Totally AWESOME!
·     Some way cool Nike headbands to keep your hair out of your face – No hair in your face = AWESOME!
·     A great assortment of products to help with all your energy needs.  Stinger is Organic – Seriously AWESOME!
·    An Under Armour Backpack – Because having some place to store your stuff is – let me hear you say it – AWESOME!
·    Body Glide – Well, we all know this product is just AWESOME!
·    Chi Running – Because we are all jumping on the minimalist – mid foot strike bandwagon and being a bandwagon jumper is AWESOME!  I actually won this book in another giveaway and it's got great information - no this is not my book.....I'm not giving you my book!





Other Random, but AWESOME Stuff:

·    Napoleon Dynamite – Only one of the most AWESOME movies EVER!
·    Sudoku Game Book – Because you need something AWESOME to do in your spare time.
·    Pens and Pencils – Because how are you going to play Sudoku without something to write with.  That would not be AWESOME.
·    Boston Marathon 26.2 Sticker – Put this on your car and people will think YOU ran the Boston Marathon…..now that’s AWESOME!





And of course, when Jack heard I was having a Giveaway he wanted to get in on the action too! 

Jack’s prize pack includes:

·    An autographed photo of Jack – This is a one of a kind item.  Probably the most AWESOME item in the giveaway.
·    I love my Lab Magnetic Note Pads – Because even if you don’t have a Lab….you know you want one!  Labs are – you guessed it AWESOME!
·    A Be Pawsitive Magnet – To remind you to be POSITIVE and AWESOME all the time!



I know there are some “girly” things in the giveaway, but I did try to have enough variety that my male blogger friends would also be interested.

What do you have to do to Enter?  I’m going to make this easy for you – you don’t have to Facebook or Twitter or any of that.  Just be a blogger!
