12 days of TNT

Clever, aren't I?  I have had some time to think about the title with being sick the last few days running a pretty high fever (gee, with my hip feeling better, there is NOTHING like feeling sick to make me even more nervous about my marathon!)  With the holidays here or looming, I wanted to have one last big raffle before my TNT fundraising is closed.  I appreciate your continued support and donations and I am doing so well and it wouldn't be without your help.

Here is one last push for me to send out some items and for you to get gifts for the runners in your life.

Here is the deal.  I have 4 running specific packages I want to raffle off in the next 12 days.  Every third day, a winner is announced, HOWEVER, you do not have to donate again for the next raffle.  So, on the 8th, the first winner will be announced, their name removed, and then on the 11th, a new winner, and so on and so on.  I also have a Vera Bradley Wallet/Clutch that will be available.  If someone picks that over a running package, two winners will be announced.  Pretty cool, right?  This way, you have a chance to get some shopping done and save a little money while you are at it!

So, here are the 4 runner gift bags to choose from.

 Bag 1

  1. Tote from One More Mile Reading You Don't Have to Go Fast.  You just Have to Go.
  2. One More Mile magnet with either 13.1 or 26.2
  3. One More Mouse Pad saying "Will Run for Wine"
  4. Two Sweatybands, one thin and one thick.
  5. One Live, Love Run Magnet

Bag 2

  1. One More Mile bag reading "Toenails are for Sissies"
  2. One More Mile Mousepad reading "Sorry, I've got to run (with my dog)"
  3. Pink Nathan Shadow Pack
  4. One More Mile Magnet with 13.1 or 26.2 
  5. One Zensah Seamless Tshirt, size L/XL in brown and can be viewed here

 Bag 3

  1. One More Mile Bag reading "My sport is your sport's punishment"
  2. One More Mile mousepad reading "13.1 miles, been there, done that"
  3. Two magnets for Lift Your Sole Reading "Endless Miles, Endless Smiles" and "The world is my treadmill"
  4. Runner Girl Stick Figure necklace which can be viewed larger here.
  5. One More Mile 13.1 or 26.2 magnet.

Bag 4
  1. One More Mile Bag reading "Will Run for a Cure"
  2. One More Mile magnet with either 13.1 or 26.2 on it.
  3. One pink iPod Shuffle, 2GB.
  4. One $10 iTunes Gift Card

 Vera Bradley Clutch/Wallet

  3. Tell me why you run.  What inspires you?  What keeps you going on a cold, dark morning?
  4. Tell me what is on your runner's wish list for the holidays.  I am just curious as to what you are all dying for!
  5. Tell me what your go to is when you get sick.  Is it mom's soup, some tea, certain medicine or vitamins?  Seriously, I need to kick this nasty bug's rear!
Also, remember I have a Bondi Band Fundraiser going on still.  You can check out the remaining bands here.  They would be a great stocking stuffer for some of the runners in your life!

Again, thanks to all the support you have generously offered me over the last few months.  I can't put into words how wonderful both the donations and kind words have been.  You guys rock and are some of the best people out there!  I promise, my begging (albeit for a good cause) will be over soon and you will get the same old lovable Erin you once had back!

Also, thanks to the wonderful people at SweatyBands, Zensah, Life Your Sole, Nathan and One More Mile for their generous donations to my raffle.  They are such awesome people and were so excited and happy to help me out!

I am off to go drink some tea and chug some OJ.  Darn you bug, I want to feel better!

Happy running!  Fingers crossed I can get out in the next day or two for a long run!

Hmmm...y do I run. What a wonderful question. well of course I run for a cause bigger then me. The cause changes time to time and the race changes but the value behind it is always the same. I run for those who can't, so some day they will! What keeps me running are usually awesome running buddies =) said...

my wish list. oh goodness too many. But right now I have this little love affair going on with Patagonia. So crazy expensive but sooo warm but light weight. Particularly the Capilene Expedition Weight Full Zip Hoodie. No I'm not specific at all ; ) said...

to ward off sickness- one word: echinacea. wonderful supplement

Trish said...

I donated!! (Not sure if I've ever mentioned this to you, but my niece is in remission from AML, so this cause is near and dear to my heart. Thank you for all you are doing!)

Trish said...

I run to be a good example to my three girls!

Trish said...

Trish said...

I run because I love it. Plus it allows me to eat whatever I want and it helps me show my kids what a healthy lifestyle looks like.


I really want an Under Armour Catalyst Hoodie. And that's pretty much it.


When I get sick, I live on Halls Vitamin C drops. Love those things. Oh, and I wash my hands like a zillion times a day

I started running to lose weight, then I was running to train for a 1/2 marathon. Now I keep running b/c I'm hooked!

Slow and Steady said...

My wish list is pretty short but includes pants and long sleeved t-shirts so that I can keep running in the cold weather. Since I'm new at this I'm not picky about brands or styles so anything will do !

Slow and Steady said...

to ward off illness, only two things have worked for me: hand washing and plenty of sleep. Not very exciting but it wokrs for me!

What inspires me to run - people like you! Seriously - I enjoy running for a cause greater than myself and I too have been affected by cancer. My uncle passed away from bone cancer a couple of years ago, and I wish I would have known him better than I did before he passed. My mother-in-law was recently diagnosed with breast cancer too.

Sara said...

When I get sick - GATORADE! Only the red kind. I don't drink it when I run, but I do when I get sick! And my puppies - they always have a way of warming you up if you have the chills! ;)

Sara said...

My running holiday wish list? Most of all - I want an annual membership to the local running club I am part of. It is pricy, but I love it!!! :) I was also thinking I might like a pair of compression pants for winter.

Stephanie said...

Donated! I run to stay healthy, to look and feel good, to motivate others to do the same thing.

When I am sick I want SLEEP!

I would like a nice work watch for christmas this year

Katye sent me over!

I donated $10 - best of luck!!

I also posted about this on my blog.

I run because i was scared to start. I didn't think i could ever be a "runner", but i wanted to try. Every time i run, i try to think about how far i've come & how i should be proud that i had the courage to start.

I am asking for a Garmin for Christmas - hope my parents are feeling generous! :)

Ugh, sorry you are feeling sick! My remedy is to lay on the couch & watch your favorite tv show/movie. And cuddle with a pet if you have one. Seems to help me. :)
