Favorite Things Giveaway-Part 2!

Favorite Things Giveaway!
Woohoo!  I finally got all the stuff together for the giveaway I've been talking about!  Like my first giveaway, I decided to focus on my favorite things.  This time however, since it's the off-season (for most of us) for triathlons, I wanted to do some of my favorite things for running, and some other fun things mixed in.  None of this stuff was donated, so I guess it's kind of a "pay-it-forward" giveaway.  So, I hope you like what I've got for you! :)

Here's what you'll get if you win:
1.  1 pair of black reflective Yankz!  I love my yankz and have them on pretty much every athletic shoe I own.  Now that the days are getting shorter, reflective gear is a must.  So, I thought I'd give away a reflective pair for that extra bit of visibility.


2.  A CD of some of my favorite running/workout songs.  I have over 5hrs. of songs on my Ipod playlist, but unfortunately they wouldn't all fit on one CD.  But, you'll get 22 songs (about 80min.) of music to help get you through those long, or short, runs! :)


3.  1 Hammer gel, 1 Gu Roctane, 1 packet of Clif Shot Bloks, and 1 packet of Sport Beans


4.  One container of Kola NUUN.  I use NUUN on every run/bike ride over an hour and absolutely love it!  


5.  1 tube of Yelpstick - This lip balm is awesome.  It has an SPF 15 and has a nice scent to it.  I don't know about you, but my lips get really dry and cracked over the winter months.  This lip balm really helps keep them smooth. 


6.  I tube of Aquaphor - If you've never tried Aquaphor, you're missing out!  This stuff is great for cuts, blisters, chaffing, dry/cracked areas, and much more.  Although I've heard you can use it for your "sensitive" areas when you're on the bike, I haven't gotten the chance to try it out yet.   But, we have used it for our son's diaper rash, and it worked great! 


7.  1 "run." sticker

8.  2 tattoos - 1 for beginnertriathlete.com (best site ever!) and 1 RMAO (Run My A** Off) Saucony tattoo

9.  1 awesome metal hook - The last thing is, in my opinion, something unique and really cool.  My brother-n-law makes amazing things using recycled metal and other materials.  I am giving away one of his hooks that he made.  I loved the design on it because it reminded me of a running path.  The hook is called "Ungawa," and the tag reads:  Ungawa looks after you, your keys, your jewelry, or just about anything that hangs.  I know this isn't exactly "running" related, but you could definitely use the hook to hang your workout bag, race medals, clothing, etc.  
He has an Etsy shop {HERE} that you should check out if you get the chance.  He sells a lot of unique things that would make great gifts for Christmas, or any time.  Oh, and the bottle openers are awesome.  We own 3 of them ourselves..ha ha! :)  


Here's how to win:
**  Please leave a SEPARATE comment for each one.**


1.  Follow my blog, or if you are already a follower, let me know! :)

2.  If you were one of the first 206 followers (through the "follow" button on blogger, not Google reader) let me know because you get an extra entry! :)

3.  Tell me what one of your favorite running items is!

** The contest will run until Tuesday, Nov. 16th.  I will announce the winner on Wed., Nov. 17th! **

i don't have many tricks or gadgets or running "stuff" besides my shoes, shorts and hat. But I guess I would have to say my Nathan running belt/pouch for carrying cell phone and water on my looong runs. I can't wait to learn more about all this fun stuff you have in your giveaway.
