The Run Home Christmas Giveaway!



You might remember a while back I did a giveaway for a necklace from The Run Home. I received a gorgeous 26.2 necklace to wear, but I felt a little odd wearing it until I had actually completed the marathon. Kind like sticking on the bumper sticker too early, you know? Now, however, I wear it any chance I get:



This time I get to give away something a little more Christmas appropriate (it's ok, it's after Thanksgiving, Im allowed now!) - a gorgeous running ornament! I don't know about you, but basically now that running has somehow infiltrated my life, nothing is safe.

I read running books. I wear running clothes. I eat runner's foods. I wear running jewelry. And yes, now I decorate my tree with running ornaments.




This ornament actually surprised me - online, it looks more fragile but in real life it's quite solid, and is really well made. And compare it to the size of my hand - it's big! (AKA noticeable on the tree and everyone will comment, and you can say, "Oh, me? Yeah, I ran a marathon...." Just me?)


Personalized Touch...

You could also use this as a gift tag for a present you're giving to a runner. Because then you would be the best person ever. How neat would this look as a gift tag?

How they get packaged



Debbie from The Run Home was kind enough to send me two "Run" Christmas ornaments, and one will go the winner of this giveaway. Lucky duck! Here's what you can do to win - leave a comment for each to be counted!

+1: Follow Gourmet Runner
+1: Like The Run Home on Facebook
+1: Tell me which ornament you like best (found HERE)
+1: Like Gourmet Runner on Facebook
+1: Tweet, Facebook, or blog about this, and let me know!
+1: Tell me what you want for Christmas from Santa. And don't ruin the whole idea of Santa OR ELSE.

The giveaway will run until December 5th at midnight - Good luck!

  6. I actually didn't ask for anything from Santa this year... I thought about Christmas for a while and really could not come up with one material thing that I need! I just want everyone to be happy and healthy! Maybe I would ask to have all of my blog friends in one place so I can give each and every one a Christmas hug.
