200th Follower Giveaway

This is just a simple thank you to my followers. I did not get this donated from Apple or iTunes. Thanksgiving is coming up, and one of the things I am thankful for is my dedicated blog followers. Thanks to all of you I have received advice, support, and most importantly - made friends. To show my appreciation, I'm giving away a $25 iTunes gift card.


I won't "force" anyone to be a follower just to get this, although obviously that would be nice. Only requirements for an entry? Tell me something that you are thankful for.

BONUS ENTRIES:

If you are a follower, you know I recently had a biopsy (that thankfully turned out to be negative for cancer). I think that cancer research is VERY important, but I don't have any specific ties with a charity. However, one of my very good friends (most of you probably know her), Heather, has a daughter with leukemia. Heather is raising money for PCRF to run the Cinco de Mayo half marathon in May. Anyone who is kind enough to donate through Heather's fundraising page will earn a bonus entry for every dollar donated. Information about the PCRF charity and their goals can be found here. Please leave a separate comment stating amount of donation.

I'll close the giveaway next Friday at 5:00 pm MST and announce a winner shortly after.

  12. I'm thankful for my health. Without my health I wouldn't have the ability to engage in the activities that I love most like running. I'm also for my family, boyfriend and friends. The last three years have been interesting, challenging and demanding. Without them I'm not sure I would have made it :)

  13. I don't want an entry, because I don't download music (lazy?), so I'm sure someone else will enjoy it more.

    But I am glad to be following you!

  14. first off I feel like a horrible friend- I had no idea about the biopsy till I saw your post the other day about how it came back benign. I was in the car with Jill H and I asked if she knew what you were talking about and she filled me in- so glad everything turned out for the positive.
    I'm thankful for so many things. More than anything in the world I want to be able to start that next chapter in my life- build a family and a home. Since its not in the cards right now I'm thankful that I was able to find something else (running and racing) to fill that void I've been missing. If it weren't for that, I don't know where my sanity would be.

  17. My husband just died 3 weeks ago.. What I am thankful for are the 30 years of memories that will help me keep going.

    I am thankful for our 3 wonderful children and 2 grandchildren. I am thankful that our 2 month old grandson has somehow survived a serious case of bacterial meningitis. I'm thankful right now that everyone is healthy and safe.

  18. If you want to spice it up a little, you should do Rebel Race Indiana. It is a really fun mud run with obstacles like a wall climb called the Great Wall of Rebel Race. There’s another obstacle called Ninja Turtle Tunnels. Its time to relive our childhood- lol. The website is www.rebelrace.com
