FIRST ENTRY!

I'm loving the BFR stuff, especially that gorgeous jacket and epiphany shorts. I love to wear pink!!

I only wish there were more items in the BFR collection.

Will return for more entries. ;)

Carlee said...

I would love Brooks to make a night life item in Brooks for Her. Think about it; reflective pink!!! That's what I'm talking about.

busyrunningmama said...

I went to Brooks and love the Brooks for Her Skort and Tank! Such a cute combination and I am still searching for a really great running skirt.....maybe this is it!!!

busyrunningmama said...

Have been a follower for a long while!!!! Love your blog!!!

busyrunningmama said...

I have done the Breast Cancer 3 Day ( 60 miles) 2 times!!! In 2004 and in 2006!!! What an amazing experience!!!!

busyrunningmama said...

posting on my blog now!!!!!

busyrunningmama said...

I am seriously considering doing the 3 Day again in 2010!! If not, I am going to make a real effort to volunteer at some of the local events and run in the local 5K and 10K walks this year!!!

Tri Mommy said...

I had to laugh when I went to the Brooks For Her Website because I am wearing (this very moment) the Brooks for her running shorts with the ribbon that they have on the website and LOVE them. (Not sure if that counts as a purchase as I bought them last month...) I'd also be interested in running pants not just capris.

I sponsored a walker (Anna) for the Florida 3 Day Walk that is about to take place this week in St. Pete (Oct. 30-Nov.1).

And I'm gonna post about your Giveaway on my blog! : )

Tri Mommy said...

Forgot to say how I was going to go pink: I'm going to resume my annual donations to the cause and am thinking about doing the 3 day in 2010.

Velma said...

I went to the website, and I like the capri pants (I do wish they had a tie). I would also like to see more items!

Lacey Nicole said...

YAY! that jacket is beeeyoooteeful!

and congrats on a great run AND v-ball! wow- that is a huge day! woo woo!

ENTRY #1--

LOVE the vapor dry line-- i like the 1/2 zip and the long tights. such a cool idea to have outwear that regulates your body temp! a must in winter when you need to wear warm clothes but don't want to overheat over the course of the run!

Lacey Nicole said...

ENTRY #2-- I AM A FOLLOWER! woo woo

Velma said...

I did the Race for the Cure STL in June 2008. I Slept in for the Cure (with donation, of course) in 2007 & 2009.

Lacey Nicole said...

ENTRY #3--

I donate every year to friends or fam who fundraise for the 3-day or a related breast cancer awareness walk.

the first year after my mom went into recovery (she had breast cancer and has been in remission now for 10 years!) we walked all together in an annual awareness walk the hospital hosts.

Lacey Nicole said...

(the walk we did was Dartmouth HitchCock Clinic Keene, NH year... not sure! sometime when I was in high school).

the most recent breast cancer 3-day I gave money to was this past August in Boston, my co-worker Amanda walked it with her friend.

Lacey Nicole said...

ENTRY #4- GOING PINK-- i will choose to purchase items that help cure breast cancer-- things with the logo and are marked as proceeds going toward the cure.

i also will continue to give money to all fundraisers i know. (tall mom?!)

Ashley said...

Oh wow, I am SOOOO all over this one!!!! Okay, well I (OBVIOUSLY *heehee*) LOVE the Epiphany shorts in PINK!! :) I'm also interested in the Thermal Visibility Pants, the Epiphany Tank and Epiphany Stretch Skort, and the Brooks for Her Capris. Oh, and of course the Brooks for Her Jacket!!!! :)

Lisa said...

I like the pink jacket and the black skort with pink stripes the best. I need capris and the capris look good too.

Ashley said...

I'm already a follower. :)

Ashley said...

I'm seriously checking out some thermal pants....I really need to add to the winter running collection. I'll let you know if/when I make a purchase.

Ashley said...

I did the Komen Race for the Cure 5k this year in Aug (I believe it was the 9th). I also did the Jared Coones Memorial Pumpkin Run on Oct 10 and a portion of the proceeds go to breast cancer (Jared Coones passed away from Leukemia and his mother Jayne passed from breast cancer, so the proceeds go to both organizations).

Ashley said...

I'll link up in my next post.

Ashley said...

How am I going to go pink?? Hmmmm....well, I will run some more PINK races - Komen Race for the Cure and the Pumpkin Run will be on my agenda every year from now on. In KC, the water in all the fountains is pink every October for Breast Cancer month and I always take Rylie to go see the pretty pink fountains! Oh, and we get PINK extensions in our hair in October too - they are half price in Oct for breast cancer month and ALL the proceeds to go Breast Cancer Research. GO PINK!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

SugarBritches said...

I like the Epiphany Straight Short and the Brooks for Her Hat. Very cute stuff!

Alright girl, you've been on my google reader, but I'm an official follower because I WANT THAT JACKET! Like, for real.

I've never owned running capris, but I'm kind of digging the Brooks ones on the site with the little pink ribbon. It's cute and goes to a good cause. Nice work Brooks people.

The McGill's said...

Hi Tall Mom! :)
I would like to enter the Brooks giveaway - I checked out their website and really like their running tanks and shorts...they look like perfect summer gear! And the color is ideal, too. :)

I am going to put a link to your giveaway on my blog...I suppose I should share the wealth. :)

And in the next year I plan to go pink by buying Breast Cancer Awareness products whenever I can in the stores; it is for such a good cause. I might even make the Race for the Cure my first 5K next year...I really should!

5 I think... :)

Thanks for doing these wonderful giveaways!

Catey said...

Wow-killer! : )
I'm loving the capris, but only b/c I already have a skort that I love. I have the skort for when it's hot, tights for when it's cold, so I need a good inbetween!

Catey said...

I have done the Avon walk for Breast Cancer twice in Washington DC in 2003 and 2004.

Hi Tall Mom!
I love the running capris, jacket and hat! So adorable, and for such an amazing cause. More reflective gear would be awesome from Brooks.

I also sponsored Danica from Chicrunner.com for her Avon Breast Cancer 2-Day walk on September 12-13th by donating to the cause.

Thanks! :) happy running!

Paige said...

I would try the Brooks capris for running. I have a pair of Nike ones that I love, and know that I would love the Brooks capris too. They would look great with that pink jacket! :)

PS..I'm a follower!

I Run for Fun said...

I love all the products. The capri and the skort look great...so does the tank top.

Suzy said...

I love the items they have. My favorite is the skort. I would like it better with briefs as opposed to compression shorts.

Suzy said...

I'm a follower and have been for a little while now. Love your blog.

Suzy said...

I donated this year to help a friend raise money for a 3-day walk (like I did in 2006, 2007, and 2008...although different friends each year).

I plan on doing the Komen Race for the Cure 5K this coming May, as a way to "Go Pink" this year. Here's the link to the event: http://www.komencolumbus.org/komen-race-for-the-cure/race-information/

I worked as an oncology dietitian for 4 years, so breast cancer (and cancer support in general) is a cause near and dear to my heart!

Melissa said...

I love Brooks!! My running sneakers are by them, and I can't say enough good things.
~After looking through the stuff on the site, the jacket is definitely my favorite item.
~ I can't click follow because my blog is on wordpress, but I added you to my blogroll.
~ My first 5k was the Susan G Komen Mother's Day run this past May.
~I plan on continuing the tradition of running in the Mother's Day 5k, and I hope to walk the 3 day within the next few years.

Tom, Lynette, and family said...

Okay...I LOVE the jacket, but the skort is cute, too!

You know I'm a follower!

I wish I could afford something right now...but alas, I cannot.

I sponsored by good friend Melanie in her Race for the Cure ;) in 2008 & will be sponsoring her in her Marathon for the Cure coming up. ;) We also sponsored family friend Michelle in the most recent Seattle 3 day walk.

I will attempt a link on my blog right now my dear! I will also post about it on Facebook for you:P

And I was planning on doing the 2010 Race for the Cure will said friend Mel...but she's doing Marathon for the Cure, so I'm not sure she'll want to do both ;)

Molly said...

1.I like the Brooks for her hat, looks like it would be good to wear during summertime runs, since I run in an old baseball cap. It would be cool to see running socks.
2. I'm already a follower : )
3. I walked with my family in the Komen Walk for Cancer on October 4th,in Syracuse, NY. We walked for my mother in law who is in the middle of her breast cancer treatment, and her sister, who is now breast cancer free.
4. I've been blogging about my mother in law since her diagnosis, so I'll be going pink on many levels over the next year.
5. I'll share your giveaway on my next blog post, then comment again with the link.

Britt said...

I think you are giving away the best BFH item! That jacket is pretty cool! I also love the hat. :)
Also would like to see reflective pieces on the clothing.

Taylor said...

I've tried to go pink in lots of things I do already...from specifically choosing products with pink ribbons in my regular shopping, to my own Pink Giveaways this Oct, to helping organize a breast cancer awareness community run. It's so easy to be pink now! : )

Britt said...

I'm a loyal follower. Suprise Suprise! :)

Britt said...

I ran in the Race for the Cure 5K last September in Topeka, KS. So inspirational and would love to do one of the 60 mile walks. :)

Britt said...

Linked you back. :)

Britt said...

I would love to GO PINK this year by running in one of the many breast cancer races. I'd love to run in a sea of pink!! :)

Laura said...

I love the jacket, but I also like the capris and running skirt. I think they need to create a tank top that doesn't go up to the neck. I like to run in tank tops that give me more room to breath. What a great giveaway! I'm already a follower.

Alisa said...

First off, great job on the blissful run. I love those!

So I would totally want the jacket or the shorts!

Would love to see LONG tights in black with a pink strip or something. =)

The Jesse said...

hi!

i'm loving the hat, i think i might need to think about investing in a hat for running (to keep the sweat out of my eyes). i'm also liking the capris, i'm short so i usually only buy capris because pants are usually too long!

The Jesse said...

i'm a new follower!

The Jesse said...

i have participated in the susan g komen race for the cure in sacramento california in may 2005, may 2008 and may 2009

The Jesse said...

AND i'll go pink in the year to come (any many years to come) by continuing to participate in the susan g komen race for the cure events & support breast cancer research by wearing my pink ribbon & wrist band!

runroamrecycle said...

First entry: I'm lovin the capris, and the HAT because I'm definitely a hat girl through n through. I'd love to see a headband and gloves for my chilly Minnesota weather!

runroamrecycle said...

entry TWOO!!! I just clicked to follow! I am not a Blogger.com blogger, so I hadn't used the following tool thing, but I realized I can sign in with my wordpress account!

runroamrecycle said...

and entry THREE! I ran in this past Susan G Komen race for the cure 5K at the Mall of America (Bloomington, MN). It's the second time I've done it, and it is so amazing to see all that pink and all that dedication to finding a cure for breast cancer.

runroamrecycle said...

and I have an entry #4! My plan for going pink this year is to get better at doing self breast exams. They teach you once when you're like 14, and then you forget about it. I want to ask at my next yearly exam to make sure I am doing them correctly, and set a reminder in my iCal to do them throughout the year!

Ang said...

could this be anymore up my alley! Is that how you spell alley? Anyway, I'm thinking I'd have to get the skort to go with the cutie patutie coat!! You know how I love a good skirt, especially one that has pink!

Ang said...

And you know I'm a follower.

P.S. THANK YOU FOR THE PACKAGE!! I got it Fri. night just in time for my long run on Sat. Totally tried out the new products, too fun. It's about the most excitement I've had since the marathon!!

Rookie on the Run said...

I love the jacket! Here are my entries...

#1- I've been a follower for a while.

#2- I visited the BFH site and I LOVE the skort! I really like that it has a zipper pocket in the back and a phone pocket in the lining. I'm a sock freak so I'd love to see some cute, comfy, pink running socks.

#3- I posted a link to yours on my blog, with the picture of the jacket and the BFH logo box. I also included the description of the cause.

#4- I plan to be pink this year by getting my first mammogram.

Believe said...

Hey there! I have been following you for about a month now, and I love what you are doing for this cause! I posted a Link to it on Todays post :) The rest of my Entrie info is below:

I have helped in 3 Race for the Cure Events the past 3 Years. I do this in remembrance of my Grandmother Betty Malone. My mother and I try and do at least one event or participate in a cause for the cure once a year.

The most recent was Sunday March 15, 2009 at the Pasadena Rosebowl Pasadena, CA. Next year to show my love for the cause I am doing the 2010 Race for the Cure which will now be at Dodger Stadium in Anahiem, CA on March 14 2010!! The venue is growing-which is great news!! :)

I am in love with the Brooks Pink Tank-I have not purchased it yet.

Thank you so much for raising awareness for this!

unathleticrunner said...

That jacket is amazing! I would love to win it but if I don't I might have to invest in it and the Brooks for her shorts--I wish they had more items! i love the tank too....oh, oh too many options!

Great job on the run! I love the capris and the jacket is too cute!

jillwillrun said...

That jacket is super cute, but the epiphany shorts also jumped out at me when I looked at the collection.

I love that Brooks is doing this. Running for breast cancer benefits is close to my heart. I have run in the 2007, 2008, & 2009 Race for the Cure events here in Las Vegas and the 2009 Global Race for the Cure in Washington, D.C. I was even in a video about the Race for the Cure (It's from New Balance, a Brooks competitor, shhh... youtube.com/runningonhope) and I'm running the RnR Las Vegas half this December to benefit the Komen Foundation.

I love companies that give back and do something good!

Michal said...

I am also a Mom on the Run!!! So glad I stumbled across your blog.

I love the flare tights. They would be amazing to work out in.

Just became a follower!

Better late than never. I love, love, love the pink shorts!! I might have to buy them. I also like the T. There is nothing better than a white running T! And the pink ribbon is the perfect touch.

Hi Mel - I'm new to blogland and I just started following your blog.

There are a lot of great items in the Brooks for Her collection. I love the skirt and the pink sleeveless top, but I'd also like to see a long-sleeve top. Something like the short-sleeve top would be really cute!

I ran the National Race for the Cure in June 2005 and did the Danskin Women's Triathlon (with my aunt, a survivor) in July 2005.

Even though breast cancer has affected people close to me, I'm ashamed to say that I'm not diligent enough about my own exams. In the next year, one of the ways I'm going to Go Pink is by paying more attention to my own breast health.

Thanks for the great blog and the great giveaway!

I love the Brooks for her running hat! With my fine, fly-away hair and me sweating like an over-grown man, a hat has been my saving grace. Would be nice to have one that is non-cotton!

Anna said...

Plans for the year to come .. I really want to run the Race for the Cure. I planned to this year, but we ended up being out of town that weekend. Also, I have always wanted to get a team together to do the 2-day Avon Breast Cancer Walk. Maybe in 2010?

First I have to say I've never had a Brooks apparel item I haven't loved. They packe their stuff with features runners need and love. I especially like that BFH pink tank and the skort...and the capris too!

Teamarcia said...

You know I am a loyal follower and I've donated to the Breast Cancer 3-Day walk in Chicago for the past 3 years (2007, 2008, 2009)

1st entry- clearly I love everything pink and therefore am obsessed with that jacket. I also love the capri pants!

Kelly said...

Entry 2- I am obviously a follower!

Badgergirl said...

I love the jacket and I also like the epiphany shorts. But I think I'd get the shorts in grey with pink accents.

It wasn't a Race for the Cure event, but I participated in the Danskin Women's Triathlon in Pleasant Prairie, WI on July 13, 2008. The proceeds from it went to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The event got a different name this year, the Trek Women's Triathlon and it was held July 12, 2009 in Pleasant Prairie, WI. Again, a portion of the proceeds went to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

I included info about the giveaway and the Brooks For Her collection on my blog,

Breast cancer has touched my life. It's a disease that left me growing up without a grandmother. After being diagnosed, my grandmother passed away from it when I was just 4 years old.

Everyone has their cause and for me, cancer is mine. How will I go pink? I'll tackle the Trek Women's Triathlon again in July and hope to get in on Trek's Breast Cancer Awareness Ride, a bike event that I missed out on this year because of a scheduling conflict. And of course I'll continue to give my support to the events and organizations that aim to raise awareness about breast cancer.

I like the white and pink short sleeve shirt. I like Brooks gear, and my husband has their running shoes.

I like the pink epiphany shorts but that jacket is really cool!!

Micki said...

I love the BFH collection!!! My favorite has to be the hat and the jacket :) And of course the skort! I have done the Race For the Cure for the last 10 years (either walking or running). I plan to do the Princess Half Marathon which benefits the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (I know....not breast cancer, but still an AWESOME cause!)

I tried postin the pictures to this link....but it wouldn't work, so I blogged about it and posted a link!

Forgot to say that my Race for the Cures were in Portland and each year in September ;)

Did I miss the cut off? Don't think so, but I'll try either way.

1. I pretty much love everything Brooks, I really want a pai of cascadias, but I love the run ez tee too :). Oh and of course I'm a follower.

2. I did 2 race for the cures - Phoenix 2007 and 2008. Not this year though, bc I lost my job that paid our race fee :(
