Pretty in Pink- Giveaway!!!


Last year I had the privilege of running the Race for the Cure 5K to benefit Susan G. Komen Breast cancer research. I LOVED being surrounded by pink friends, young and old, all running for various reasons toward the same goal. My plan was to make this an annual event, of course often life/work get in the way....and this year I will be out of town for the event in Seattle. I am SAD!!! I was very impressed with the organization, especially how easy and fun it was to raise money for the cause.
Since I love Pink, am passionate about breast cancer research, am thankful for a recent goodie bag win, have a talented and crafty mother-in-law and would love others to participate in this race....I created the....

"Pretty in Pink" Giveaway
Since this is my first Giveaway, I am going to start small :)

You can earn up to 3 entries for this giveaway (You can accomplish all 3 with one comment if you prefer):

Entry 2: Add me to your blogroll or come "On the Run" with me (be a public follower), then send me a comment. If you are already a follower let me know.

Entry 3: Post a link to this contest on your blog and let me know.

And what will you win? The BEAUTIFUL handcrafted bracelet below. Various pink items for you to wear for future Komen events, including a brand new pair of the pink socks and hot pink nail polish in the photo above.

I love the braclet. I've done Komen twice now and plan to do the Wichita Komen again in Sept (and am even training a girl this summer to do her first 5K - WHOOOO HOOO!).
