I really wish I had a million dollars so that I could give you all a new pair of running shoes for Christmas this year. Then I could force you to come to San Jose so that we could all wear them at the same time as we go for a run and while we are out running we would stop at all the best food places (mainly ice cream places) to refuel our run so we could run together all day long.
Until I can fulfill that dream of mine, I can give away one pair of my absolute favorite pair of shoes… just in time for Christmas!
The Brooks PureProject line are my favorites and I just got the PureFlow 2s and love every aspect of them. It is a match made in heaven, comfort and lightweight. My treadmill even approved of them.
I am also giving the winner a package of running shoe/running person noodles. Just imagine how happy you would be to be wearing these beautiful running shoes at the same time you are eating a big bowl of Brooks Carb Happy, Run Happy Runaroni.
Giveaway ends on December 15th!!!!
To enter a chance to win your choice of shoe from the Brooks PureProject line (PureGrit, PureFlow, PureCadence, PureConnect, PureFlow 2, PureCadence 2):
1. In a comment tell me what day your birthday is or your favorite animal or your favorite baby or your favorite RUN HAPPY MOMENT.

My birthday is coming up soon… .Jan. 5th. This would make an awesome birthday gift, wink wink, nudge nudge ;)
A run happy moment for me was the Marine Corps Marathon this year. It was my husbands first (and last, likely) marathon, and my 3rd. Even though I run a hair faster than him, I decided I wanted to run the entire race with him (good or bad). Our training was in 120,000 degree Phoenix, and due to various reasons, wasn’t ideal. But come race day, we were strong and ran the entire race together, finishing with hands held in the air. It was a hard race for him, but he persevered and we finished in 5:13, which I thought was great for him. I was a proud and happy wife :)
and I tweeted! @ashleyrgamba
My birthday is March 10. My favorite running moment to date was actually a training run. It was the first time I did 13 miles. I wanted to give up so bad at 12. But I pushed through. And I felt great doing when I was done.
Favorite animal is an elephant, my birthday is september 21st and I love all babies, and I love every run (well almost every run)!
Tweeted about it. Dorkynerd on twitter.
Favorite season is summer, favorite holiday is Christmas, and yours is definitely one of my favorite blogs :)

My birthday is November 5. Remember, remember the 5th of November!!
Birthday is 9/14! Favorite run happy moments are when you feel like you could just go on for days!
My favorite run happy moment is the point in the run where your mind shuts off and you just run. Sometimes it’s only a few steps, other times I lose whole miles. It’s wonderful.
My birthday is October 19, 1980 and my favorite RUN HAPPY moment is finishing my very first marathon. I was just hoping to finish in 4:00….I ended up finishing in 3:45 – and had a negative split on the second half! Woohoo!
Tweet tweet! I tweeted atcha!
It would be awesome if I win this!!! My birthday is January 10th and I am running a half 10 days after!! :)

My birthday is May 10th. I was born on Mother’s Day, and the day after my parent’s first anniversary (talk about the best Mother’s Day gift ever, right?!) ;).
My favorite animal is a tiger. They are so beautiful, and look so soft and cuddly; although I would not recommend cuddling with one anytime soon.
My favorite baby is my own baby, Evangeline. (Of course.) =)
And my favorite RUN HAPPY MOMENT? I was always a sprinter in high school track, and didn’t try to become a distance runner until recently. I was badly in shape and overweight when I started running again… so the first time I completed running an 8 minute mile, yes just 1 mile, I was ecstatic!! Such a high. :-)
My birthday is October 24! My favorite animal is my dog, Duncan Donut who is a shih tzu puppy. :)

Hi Janae! I have never considered myself a runner, so my favorite running moment was last night when I ran 3 miles on the treadmill without even realizing it! Yesterday also marked the day that I reached my workout goal for the last couple of months, so I told myself I get to buy new shoes! :)
My birthday is January 23!
Tomorrow is not only my birthday but my 30TH birthday! Amelia is my favorite baby…although at 13 months she is kind of a toddler now. (Second place to Brooke?) :) Unfortunately I haven’t really had a RUN HAPPY moment in awhile…I ran my very first Half Marathon about a week before I got pregnant! I’m trying so hard to get back into it. (i couldn’t run during pregnancy because I was so sick!) Maybe new shoes would be just the trick!
My birthday is July 28 and my favorite animal is dogs!
My favorite animal is panda bears and my bday is cinco de mayo (May 5)!
My birthday is January 25, one month after Christmas! It’s probably the best birthday ever because I also share it with my mom and my grandpa. Pretty great right?
I’ll also share my happy running moment. I have only run two half marathons but my first one was my favorite! I felt so awesome the whole time and I kept thinking “Ok Alyssa, at some point this is going to get really hard and it’s going to suck. Be prepared” But it never did! I was on cloud 9 the whole time! Best run ever!!
I also just tweeted about this. @alyssacraig25
I like dogs.
I would love to try some minimal shoes! and Tigers Rock! :)

Two favorite run happy moments: completing my first marathon and my first run after being diagnosed with MS.
My favorite run happy moment was PRing my 10K Thanksgiving Trot this year. Plus, once we finished, they gave us a mini apple pie. Best post race swag ever!
Most recent run happy moment was 6 solo miles on Thanksgiving. It was one of those runs that I don’t think I stopped smiling
My favorite RUN HAPPY MOMENT:
My friend and I decided to register for our first half marathon that was taking place where I lived while she was in town. She wasn’t able to fully train due to a knee injury and a battle with an illness. When I completed the race (yahoo!!!) I backtracked to locate her. My happy moment was when she told me she was pushing forward and finishing the race despite how tired she was. I was incredibly proud!

My birthday is July 10… my oldest daughter’s birthday is the day after! Favorite animal has to… a giraffe, or dog, or… zebra. Happy running moment?! ANY moment where I feel so good while I’m running that I feel like i could run forever– I LOVE days like this. There aren’t many of them- but when they come- they are SOO amazing.
Oh and the cadence. I have pronation issues and they are SUPER cute and I just moved to North COlorado Springs (super high altitude) and I am readjusting my legs and lungs to running miles about the sea. ugh!
