Big News

I am excited to announce my very first give-away on my blog! 

Like most good ideas, it came to me during a run. A friend of mine recently became a representative for Silpada Designs, and she has been posting some gorgeous jewelry on her Instagram account. I worked up the nerve to approach Kelly and ask if she'd be willing to donate a piece to raffle off on my blog...and she said yes!

This may or may not have been my response after I got her message. (Okay, it wasn't really - even though I do a mean 'vogue'.) Suffice it to say I was STOKED. Kelly generously gave me three items to choose from, and I settled on this beauty:

Rugged Pearls Bracelet
Kelly models the bracelet.
The bracelet stacks beautifully with other pieces.
Since this is my first go at anything like this, it's also my first time using Rafflecopter. I figure if it's good enough for my girl Danielle at the T-Rex Runner, then it's good enough for me:

If you are interested in seeing Kelly's whole Silpada line, feel free to check out her site. 

Happy raffling!


  1. I'm a new reader (found your blog from GGS)! :]

    For some reason, Metric's Breathing Underwater popped into my head, so I'm going to go with that as a suggestion! Not sure if it's fast enough for a cycling class though(?)!

  2. Thank you for your comment, Farrah!

    I absolutely love your song recommendation. It will actually work very nicely, and I'll either cue it as a heavy resistance standing climb, or a combination of seated and standing intervals.

    I like Metric, but I don't know their music very well or have any of their songs in my rotation. Thank you for stoking me out!

  3. Right on!! And yes - I saw your amazing yoga photo today! Very inspiring!

    Thanks for your comment and entering my raffle, Rebecca!

  4. I found you because you entered a giveaway on my blog! Good luck to both of us! :)

    1. I'm super excited for your giveaway! Thank you for participating in mine :)

      I noticed you use Blogger, too. I'm wondering if you know the (hopefully easy) answer to a format question - so I sent you an email.

    1. You are cracking me up?!

      I'd say your odds aren't very good since you haven't entered the contest.

  6. Love that I found your blog through Instagram :) excited to read more! X

    1. Thank you so much for your comment @MarathonHarry!

      Your blog is wonderful!! I was so curious about your name that I thought I would look it up - and I read the whole thing! I can't wait to hear more about your training for Paris, and I'll cross my fingers about London. I'm looking forward to more posts!

      Full disclosure: I liked your writing so much that I ended up creating a link to it and sharing your most recent post on my blog's Facebook page. I hope you don't think I'm a nutter!

  7. Aw thank you so much! I'm still new to blogging, but will be updating more regularly as my journey to Paris and possibly London gets underway :) x
