42 on 101010. Big Ol' Fat Giveaway!

his giveaway is closed!  Thanks for participating!


  42.


"The date is 10.10.10.  Besides the symmetry of the number, which is beautiful in and of itself, is the ultra nerdy stuff people like myself love. you see, 101010 is not only redundant it is also binary for the number 42.  If it were 26 maybe you, my American readers would be more intrigued.  But for those who see distances in kilometers, 42 means a great deal.  Like the number of kilometers in a marathon.  So there is no way I am going to miss running a marathon on 10.10.10."






    According to Dane Rauschenberg's blog post Sunday may bring us closer to the answer to Life The Universe and Everything. My hubby thinks this is silly but I love it!   42. The meaning of Life, The Universe, and Everything.

T Being a Douglas Adams fan and a little bit of a geek, I wish that I could run a marathon in his honor or just to celebrate the day in some way. I am only going to be running 10 miles but I will be thinking of all the marathoners heading out there tomorrow.
It is also the date of the NYC Barefoot Run!  I hope to be there next year for sure. 

Lets celebrate all of it with a big ol' fat giveaway!  
If I don't just put this out there I will procrastinate until I am so loaded down with crap to do that I just throw my hands in the air and say eff it all.  So instead of one giveaway for each and ridiculous amount of pressure on me,  I am doing one really big one with a huge amount of ways to increase your chances of winning depending on how much time you want to put into gaining entries! Besides, these are all some of my favorite things, (insert Julie Andrews singing here) and I want to share about the stuff I am diggin' on now.
  • I have a signed copy of Jason Robillards book "The Barefoot Running Book". Second edition!  This is good stuff people!  He is funny and full of down to earth (hehe) useful barefoot knowledge.  I often, even having run for over a year barefoot, refer to his book for info.





  • Dean over at Clif Bar is letting me give away a box of mixed flavors of gels.  They have revamped the ingredients and the look.  I can say they are pretty great! mmmm chocolate cherry! They will be able to send out the Clif at the beginning of November since they have not been on the market yet.







  • A nuun care package with three flavors and a nuun water bottle. You must stay hydrated and nuun is the prime way to do so!

  •  For those marathoners out there (and aspiring marathoners of course), I have a medal hangar from Allied Steel that they gave me to pass on to one of you.  They sent me a Barefoot Angie Bee hanger that totally rocks!

Boys and Girls both sign up and get the word out!
Here is how to enter. ***Make sure you leave a separate comment for each thing you do. Each comment means an entry since I will choose using random.org. the more comments, the more chances to win***  
I will announce a winner on Monday October 18th.

Lots of wonderful things going on for me.  My running is fun as ever. I have made some new friends and am loving the upcoming opportunities and I have a wonderful family that keep me grounded and safe through all of my adventures.
Happy running my friends!!

Sorry should have noticed this was the next entry- I used to and will continue to fuel with banana nuun tablets. I like to drink water and gatorade when available.

run4may said...

I don't, I have them in an envelope in a cabinet. If I win I look forward to having a designated display of my hard work.

run4may said...

I have tried barefoot running once. I went out and did way too many miles for a first barefoot run and my feet were torn up for a week. I am considering becoming a barefoot runner after my marathon tomorrow. I couldn't make the switch during this training cycle but look forward to the change. I think my feet will thank me in the long run. Shoes disagree with my feet.

Jamie said...

I fuel with Luna or CLIF bars

Jamie said...

I stay hydrated with water and gatorade

Jamie said...

I started running barefoot at the end of July and will be running my first half-marathon next Saturday and I'll be doing it barefoot! (provided it doesn't rain)

Jamie said...

Don't have any bling yet, but instead of finished metals, The Pink Series half marathon is giving away necklaces. Looking forward to wearing it proudly!

Lynette@ A Hodge Podge Of Randomness said...

I run barefoot about 10% of the time and in VFF's the rest of the time. I would love to switch to 100% barefoot, but I'm too impatient and want to keep my miles up ;)

I just tried nuun on my long run today, and it worked really well.

Like Nuun, incidentally I tried Nuun for the first time yesterday at Power-tri, local tri store at a Kona party. It was awesome! I'll be getting some for sure.

Trish said...

Love Clif bars!

Trish said...

I like to fuel prerun with RokitFuel and then during the run with clif, sports beans or shot bloks. Occasionally with shot roks too.

Trish said...

I usually just use water to hydrate, but after trying nuun yesterday, I'm def going to add it to my arsonnal.

Trish said...

The only race bling I have so far, isn't a medal. It's a dogtag style necklace with the race symbol laser cut into it. Much cooler looking than it sounds. So, I sometimes wear them (done the race twice) as a necklace.

Trish said...

I have only barefoot run on accident, chasing kids or the mailman. Have a cousin who does it and loves it though.

I live on water and coffee. I almost always have some form of hydration with me!

TMB @ RACING WITH BABES said...

My marathon medals are in a case, but the rest of my bling is hidden in a bag in a drawer. so sad!

TMB @ RACING WITH BABES said...

I have tried it. And it is not my friend. I supinate and have an extra bone on the outside of my foot that is the direct contact point when my foot hits the ground. Extremely painful.

I usually fuel by eating a slight breakfast (usually a flatbread with peanut butter, banana and raisins on top). Sometimes I eat some dry cereal, though- and lots of water.

Fuel: FOOD. REAL food. (fresh fruit/veggies)

Amy said...

I am a pansy runner, so I usually leave my water bottle at the end of my loop and if I do the loop twice, go me. :)

Amy said...

I have my race bibs and other stuffs in a beautiful box on my dresser. It's a perfect reminder of why I'm bothering to put on my running clothes.

Amy said...

I've never run barefoot, but I want to SO SO bad. I'm just scared of the cold/sharp/road. There is an elementary school with a track around a chunk of grass that I really want to try soon.

I've tried barefoot running. I often run in the field behind our house.

My training runs are on the street and I've noticed lots of glass. I've been trying to win some Vibrams. :)

heather said...

I don't have any race bling yet, but hope to change all that soon! So far I just got a t-shirt for the 5K I ran last week.

I love the steel bling hangers. So cool that they made you a custom one!

I follow you miss thang!

Momma K and her Krew said...

I eat a half a granola bar or something similar before a run. Thats it. Never tried fueling during....I know, Im weird.

Momma K and her Krew said...

I drink the day before a bunch and the night before but I rarely drink during. When I come back its coffee and water. Again, I know I am weird. Open for advice though. I just feel fine so I done want to change the mojo.

Momma K and her Krew said...

I have never tried barefoot running unless you include chasing my boys around the house. Interested, intrigued bit not sure I could hack it.

I fuel with gels (prefer GU, Accel, Powerade in that order), and just recently tried Clif Shot Bloks during a half marathon and I loved them. Will be working those into my fueling routine more.

Courtney @ I CAN DO THIS said...

I hydrate with water and Gatorade because my coaches place it on the course. I hate carrying a bottle so I haven't tired nuun yet, but I'm planning on getting a fuel belt for my marathon training and want to give it a try.

Courtney @ I CAN DO THIS said...

My medals are hanging off the corner of my wardrobe mirror.

Jes said...

I normally fuel with some sort of bar... the Luna chocolate raspberry are my favorite.

Jes said...

I hydrate with h2o most of the time... i will use powerade after a run if i am feeling ok in the stomach.

Jes said...

I dont have enough race bling to worry about how to display it. I have 1 bib sitting on my dresser. I am going to train for a half marathon in the spring and maybe a full in the fall of next year and plan to do something cool like a shadowbox in my office or something.

Jes said...

Never running barefoot. When leaving from my house the road is pretty dangerous as far as barefeet go. I am however working on getting used to my new VFFs

I ran once around the track barefoot. Haven't tried since then, but would like to ... maybe in the spring.
