win some fitbloggin’ goodies!

Oh how time flies.

Fitbloggin’ 11 was over a month ago, yet I’m only just sorting through the extra goodies I picked up for a couple of lucky readers!

For those of us who stayed until the bitter end, there was a room of freebies. I stocked up on some tasty cereal for myself, but also grabbed some extra goodie bags to give away.

One person will receive a swag bag filled with with samples, coupons and an awesome iBEANi hat:

Another person will receive a sport pack from FitStudio:

To enter to win, leave a comment below and let me know your plans for the 4th of July weekend!

If you tweet about this giveaway, you’ll get an extra entry. Link to this page, and mention #fitbloggin and @merrymishaps so I can find it.

I’m paying shipping myself, so I have to limit this to U.S. addresses. Sorry international friends! Contest ends on Tuesday, July 5 at 2pm Eastern. I’ll pick a winner Tuesday night.

Good luck!

and the thriv shirt winner is …

OK, I didn't pull names from a hat. I figured my GreenLiteBites bowl from Fitbloggin' was an appropriate substitute!


It’s an extra special day for her, because she just ran her first marathon today. Congratulations! (Please send me your mailing address and shirt size.)

For everybody else, there’s still a chance to win! Just sign up for the thriv1st monthly newsletter. They give away 50 shirts a month to the people on this list!

giveaway: win a thriv shirt!

Remember my awesome thriv shirt from  Fitbloggin’?

Would you like to win one of your own?

Well, it won’t have the Fitbloggin’ logo, but will be the same super-soft shirt made with a blend of organic cotton and bamboo. I sure wish I had more of these in my collection! (Why yes, I could buy myself more gear from their new online store … but I won’t let myself until I can clear more space in my overflowing closet and dressers!)

The nice folks at thriv are offering a shirt (either women’s or men’s) to one lucky reader. Unfortunately, shipping is only available in the U.S.  I’m sorry, international friends!

To enter, simply leave a comment and tell me about your favorite workout gear. Clothing, gadget, whatever.  What can’t you live without?

One comment per user, please.

But would you like another chance to win while helping out a good cause?

On May 23, I will be running the Maryland Half Marathon, benefiting the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center.

This sounds like a great cause and I’d love to help out.  I was going to give varying giveaway entries based on amount donated, but I’ve changed my mind. Anybody that donates any amount on my contribution page gets THREE extra entries. If you blog under a different name, email me  (see sidebar for address) and let me know who you are!

I wasn’t going to do retweet entries … but I want to spread the word!  I’ll count up to two retweets per person (one extra entry each). Please leave one comment to let me know to look for your tweets.  I’ll find them as  long as you reference @merrymishaps. Please link back to this page.

The contest will close on Friday, May 14 at 11:59pm EDT. Winner will be chosen by the scientific name-pulled-from-hat method by Sunday, May 16.

Good luck!
