You Might Remember...


a rather lengthy blog that recapped the highlights of my
Christmas Holiday.
Hidden within that blog - for those brave enough to read it all - was a little hidden give away!

My introduction to a couple of months of aMaZiNg GiVeAwAyS!


Not everyone remembered to wear cool slipper socks!

Can you guess which ones are mine??

Be a follower who is first to e-mail me with the correct answer and you could win a price.

First.  The winners.  Yeah there were two. 
That's the thing about hidden giveaways the rules are a little vague.  I didn't have anyone e-mail me the correct pair of socks but I had two people say the striped penguins were mine.  The actual first responder said two different socks so there is a consolation prize headed to Mel at Tall Mom on the Run.

The grand prize winner is Jill at Run with Jill.  A package of goodies is headed your way. 
Congratulations to you both for winning and for being such loyal supporters of my little story of life! 
I don't want to spoil the surprise so we will all have to wait and see the goodies from the
winner's blogs once they are received!!

  2. It is a toss-up, I love 'Running is Cheaper than Therapy' but then I saw "Will run for chocolate" and "Will run for wine." Since I love wine and chocolate and if I *had* to choose I'd pick 'Will run for chocolate.'

  3. 1) HI! I'm a follower and I LOVE 1 more mile. 2) Anddd I have a lot of their stuff but I could definitely use more car magnets and T-shirt with "Will run for...'s" on them or their "Ben there run that" Ts!\
    3) I dressed as Hannah Montana in Oct for a halloween race... I had to toss my very long and very hot blond wig in the middle of the race, pulling out my real hair and looking quite disheveled.

  8. Fifth, and final, wait, I will link you too tomorrow...EVERY SINGLE LOCAL race and some more distance ones, my husband and I see the same runner. He is an asian man, mid twenties, and he is about five mins faster than me ALWAYS, but he wears a pink sports bra, a pink visor, and the best of all that cheetah and pink running skirt! My hubbs takes a pic of him running past at EVERY race and when he sees him I am always right behind! This year, my goal is to beat him! He is so entertaining and we have a collage of him! :)

  12. My most memorable running outfit (in a bad way) was when I had the brilliant idea to wear a hot pink skirt over black tights with a hot pink (but not matching) top. To distract everyone from the fact that my pinks were clashing I threw on a black vest. During the 1/2 marathon I got waaay too hot and the zipper on the damn vest was stuck so I roasted my buns off in a blaze of pink.

  13. Wait I won?? I knew the penguins were yours and I FAILED to read that I needed to email you.. UGH!! I am an avid follower and commenter :)

    When does this contest end? DO you want 1 comment for each answer??

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yea for me!!! I've never won anything in my life (is it a new 4WD BMW, by chance? :) ). I've enjoyed sharing your journey with you and I can't wait to see whee 2010 lands us! xoxo

  15. I love One More Mile stuff! My favorite shirt slogan is probably "Dear God, please let there be someone behind me to read this."

    I also like "Who moved the finish line?".

  16. I'm already a fan of One More Mile on Facebook. :)

  17. Most memorable thing I've seen worn on a race: A lobster hat. A man wore a lobster hat for the whole marathon and he was just ahead of me almost the whole way. Maybe that's why I remember it so well.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I just put a link for your giveaway on my sidebar!

    Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Haha, I actually really like the shirt featured on your blong, "Kick Assphalt"! Its hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Worst outfit I've worn while running: definitely a BRIGHT yellow shirt and these ugly maroon shorts. It was an early morning run, and I did not care, but my neighbors came out and started laughing at me!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I was pretty proud of my Giraffe costume although I did not get to wear it because of RAIN..

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love the pink Marathon hats and many many of the shirts.. The 13.1 earrings are pretty precious.

  25. Some guy dressed up like Darth Maul(sp?)full makeup and all, and ran a half marathon in 2hrs 10min. like that.

    ReplyDelete

  27. I would like to win the shirt that says, "Today I am a Kenyan."

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love OneMoreMile - want ALL of their stuff!

    That Tall Mom referred me (she told me to say that!)

    The worst outfit I've seen was something that someone else must have thought normal - I don't want to offend by describing...she could be reading.

    ReplyDelete
  29. 2. I a a fan of One More Mile on facebook!

    ReplyDelete
  30. 3. I have a weakness for car magnets, and especially ones that say, "In my dreams, I am a Kenyan."

    ReplyDelete
  31. My most embarrassing running outfit is easy: hot pink socks, unshaven legs, and muffin crumbs on my ass and icing in my hair. It was a crazy morning.

    ReplyDelete
  32. 5. Consider your blog linked. Done. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Just found your blog! I'm now a follower!

  36. I would want to win the Runner Girl Cap or the "One Bad Mother Runner" shirt!

    ReplyDelete
  37. My favorite running outfit is my dark pink tank, navy/pink running skirt with pink/white striped socks. I'm wearing it in my profile picture ... but the worst outfit I ever saw was a group of women wearing colored (pink/purple)animal print skirts and 1 shoulder strap tops. It could have been cute, but they wore all this pink hair dye and face make up and they just looked scary. I laughed every time I came across one!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I've always been a fan of the "Will run for beer", but since I'm just about to start training for a second marathon, when I said I'd never do it again, that shirt is pretty accurate.

  39. I like the "My sport is your sport's punishment" tshirt. Cute!

    ReplyDelete
  40. On a recent Jingle Bell Run the winner was dressed fully as Santa,including beard. It wasn't "funny" so much as crazy, because we live in South Florida and the heat and humidity is insane!

    ReplyDelete
  41. 2. Just became a fan of One More Mile on FB

  42. 3. I am coveting the "Canadians Do it Metric 42.2 Short Sleeve"

    ReplyDelete
  43. OK - I just became a follower. ;-)

    I LOVED what you said in Tall Mom's blog about how we have all experienced the same 365 days but did so many different things during that time. That is just magical to think about.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Became a fan of One More Mile and I love the Running Won't Kill you shirt.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Crazy costume in the Crazy Legs Classic. I am from madison wi - home of the University of Wisconsin. One of the annual runs is the Crazy Legs Classic - named in honor of Crazy Legs Hirsh, former football player at UW and former athletic director.
    Anyway - it is an 8K run held in April. There are usually at least a couple people running in full football gear. Last year we saw a couple of women - (late 50ish age wise - I am 54 and they were older than me) - in full pads and helmet running / walking during the race - which was run in about 45 degree weather and heavy heavy rain. Unbelievable and CRAZY.
    Plus there are usually a couple of Hot dog costumes in honor of Oscar Mayer.

  46. 1. I'm a follower!
    2. Just linked to you :)
    3. One more mile has so much stuff I love! I think my favorite is the Kick Assphalt T-shirt, although the Toenails are for Sissies is pretty good too.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oh, I love their little sayings!! I would want the "find your happy pace" or "toenails are for sissy" long sleeve shirts!

    ReplyDelete
  48. I totally thought I was a follower but apparently I wasn't! lol I now am "officially" a follower!

  49. I am not a fan of one more mile on facebook!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I would love the short sleeve shirt that says "Running is cheaper than therapy"

    That one is so funny and oh so true!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I linked you in to my post "Really that was only 2 miles"

    It is towards the end!

    ReplyDelete
  52. When I ran my first 5k there was a man in a turkey costume. It was hilarious but also loooked really hot. I have no idea how he ran in it.

    When I run my 13.1 I want to wear some kind of spunky costume. Maybe everyones answers will inspire me! lol

  55. An item I'd like to win from One More Mile would be a running tank or singlet with "Kick Assphalt" or "May The Course Be With You" on it. I'm a Star Wars nerd so it combines two things I love :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. I like the "Find Your Happy Pace" shirts. Right now, the long-sleeve one seems most appropriate.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Someone I know wore pink running shorts that would often bleed color during races. The pink would be streaming down his legs during the whole marathon.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I used to care what I looked like when I run and now I just throw things on. When I have a race my outfit is from the clothes I like but otherwise I'm pretty tacky.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Love the " you know you're a runner when...." T-shirt! Except I still can't say fartlek without laughing!!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I'll post a link on my blog today!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. I stopped by the website and I LOVE the "May the course be with you" shirt, but there were so many other ones I loved too. Cute site, I'll be bookmarking it.

  62. I added a link to this page on my Great Giveaways section on my blog!

  63. The best outfit I ever saw was during the Halloween 10K I did last year, there was a man and he had on a pink ostrich (the kind that looks like he's a jockey) and he was carrying a musket with an American flag while wearing a civil war hat. It was the most random and bizarre costume but the best part was he was smokin' everyone and at the end of the race there was a woman who was just behind him and her boyfriend was yelling at the finish line, "Don't let a pink ostrich beat you!!!" It was my favorite costume I've seen so far.

    ReplyDelete
  64. I am a follower and I love that t-shirt!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I would love the long sleeve t that says "this seemed like a good idea 3 months ago" on the front and "race official. do not pass" on the back!! Awesome!!

  68. It would be hard to choose - I like the tanks that say:
    Running is cheaper than therapy
    Slow is the new fast
    I gotta run

    ReplyDelete
  69. I follow one more mile on facebook!

  70. I wore a turkey hat for a race - does that count as a costume?

    ReplyDelete
  71. 1. I am already a follower as you well know! :)

    ReplyDelete
  72. 3. I want to win the "Kick Assphalt" tank because it would remind me of the sign I saw while running Chicago Marathon and anything that reminds me of that glorious day makes me so happy!

    ReplyDelete
  73. 4. My worst running outfit? Perhaps the completely ridiculous "christmas elf" look I donned on Christmas eve for my pace work out... now that was pretty silly! LOL!
