There’s plenty of sad news every day, so I thought I’d share a few good things going on.
1. Marie from Why She Runs let me know that her uncle linked my post about her fund-raising efforts on his Facebook page and she received a $100 donation, which means she exceeded her goal. Thank you for donating! Amanda at 5 Miles Past Empty also reached her fund-raising goal last week! Congrats, ladies! Thank you for working hard to help others!
(Please let me know if you are running to raise money for a good cause because I would love to feature you!)
2. I got a very nice e-mail from on of ya’ll on Monday that MADE. MY. DAY. You know who you are…thank you!
3. I won a couple of giveaways recently. Yay! From 26.2 Quest, I won a signed copy of Couple on the Run‘s book, which I can’t wait to read. Ready to be inspired! And from This Stop Willoughby, I won a $50 gift certificate from Novica. I ordered a purse and some pretty turquoise earrings. They came wrapped all cute and everything!
Do you ever enter giveaways? If you don’t, why not?
wow, thats AWESOME!!!! i used to enter every. single. giveaway. i. could. find. and won a lot. but it got old having to jump through all the hoops, then i got tired of some blogs that seemed thats all they do is giveaways and no real content. my blogroll got very clogged up. so unless its something i really want now, i dont enter. im not antigiveawy, i just hate when thats all a blogger does.
I rarely enter the giveaways because I am the least luckiest person ever. And because there's probably a mom out there who deserves it way more than me.I thought the card on top of the package was a giant chocolate bar. You see where my head is today.
I like giveaways. I enter the ones I want, but never seem to win. Someday… 🙂
fabulous news! you are so lucky! congrats! Sounds like you are winning!
No, thank YOU! Happy running!
congrats on winning! i don't enter because i never win. however, i need to stop that negative thinking, and start trying again. ever since i started running and blogging about it…i am so much happier. sorry for ramblin on.
Congrats are winning! I never win, but I hardly enter..odds are against me! And there is too much sad news – thanks for sharing some good news!
I'm so glad you had fun with your gift card from Novica! I've won two giveaways since I've been blogging, but only received one of them (which was kind of disappointing).
I sometimes enter giveaways. I never win. Actually I won ONCE from RLAM site! It was awesome. After that I quit entering, like Chelsea I am so not lucky. I figured that was my luck for the next 5 years….Thanks for linking my TNT fundraiser!! I met my goal and actually raised my goal limit for the third time! It is truly amazing and awesome!!!
