High Five Friday- Winners & Contest

Oh am I GLAD IT IS FRIDAY!!! The work week following a vacation always seems to be the longest. I have been running, not much, but it feels good to get in some short runs. My Garmin cord went MIA, so I will update here and Dailymile ASAP.

I am still TBD on the plans for the weekend. I was feeling the itch to run a 5K but alas I could not find one in close proximity. There are a couple fun options and my big Sister wants to do the Beat the Bridge, but I would like to run with her for FUN first. Will see..

To wrap up a few FUN things... Here are some Winners.. FYI I am super slow at mailing out packages so bear with me pretty please :)
  • WINNER of the Run Like a Mother Book is: Barefoot Angie B. Please email me your address Angie and I will mail your book. Thanks again to TALL GRANDMA for hosting.
  • WINNER of the 5K is Laurie! Laurie send me your address and you will receive a fun Gu and Nuun prize pack.
  • WINNER of the race bib contest....Oh this was a TIGHT Race!! I loved all the bibs, but one person made a bib for her unborn child to wear, two bibs....she had to WIN! Catey, email me your address and I will send you some fun little things..

Jen got me thinking. It would be FUN to have a HIGH FIVE photo contest. Lets take it one step further.

1- Take a photo of yourself in the High Five pose

2- Create your own High Five Friday logo

3- On Friday 5/21 host your own High Five Friday on your Blog

4- Email me or leave a comment to let me know that you are participating. I will go around and judge the entries....

*****WINNER will get something FUN from Gone for a Run and the opportunity to HOST High Five Friday on the Tall Mom Blog.

Thanks for the high five! I certainly need it today as I"m a bundle of nerves.

Stacie said...

Thanks for the High Five!!!

Count me in for the High Five Contest. It looks like fun. Maybe I can come up with some ideas while I'm running from 2-4am tonight/tomorrow :)

Good Luck to everyone running this weekend!!!

Marlene said...

Fun idea for a High Five cnotest... I'll see what I can come up with.

THANK YOU for the high five and for ALL of your support and encouragement. You've taught me to BELIEVE.

Thanks Mel and Thanks to Tall Grandma!! Hugs from me to you :)

I will be giving my copy to a dear friend who is raising 5 kiddos! She is super busy all the time since one of her kids has special needs and her hubby works all the time. She needs some lovin with her runnin!!

Laurie said...

Thanks! I'm really excited because I've never used Gu or nuun and as I get ready for my first half marathon I need to do some fueling experiments, this will really help! I'll get you my info soon.

I think you made a good choice on the race bib pic. There were a lot of really creative ones I'm sure it was a hard choice but Catey's bib for her little one was great!

Katie A. said...

Have a great weekend - the ones with no real plans are always nice!

teacherwoman said...

TGIF! I love the idea of High Five Photo Contest! I can't wait!

Christy Ashley said...

I'm definitely in for the High Five Contest! Although, next week's High Five will go to ME for running my first Half on Sunday!

Shellyrm ~ just a country runner said...

Thanks for the High Five and the great view idea!

Just not sure I can pull together something as big as my own High Five Friday. I might have to get back to you on whether I am up for the challenge.

Thank you for pulling all this great info together for us. I know that it is very time consuming. I really appreciate it!

Have a great weekend...hope you find a 5k to run somewhere.

ShutUpandRun said...

I am still high fiving myself for BQ'ing on Sunday. The high from that one should last quite a while...

RunToTheFinish said...

i feel a little like i deserve a high five for not crying all week... I wanted to! :) Can't wait to meet you, but I'm really scared about the whole 4 hour thing, I want it badly so we'll see

X-Country2 said...

High fives all around! Hopefully you find that race you're itching to do. :o)
