lucy activewear started a promotion earlier this month that I think is so very clever. It’s called Compete and Win! If you reap the fame and glory of a win in a race that you’re recently competed in, you can win free stuff from lucy if you do so wearing lucy activewear.

So, here’s the deal:

If you have recently raced in lucy clothes, and won the race (technically, in lucy terms, this includes placing first, second or third), make sure to snap a race photo and send it in to lucy for a free outfit! For the podium stars, lucy is giving away a training tank and your choice of a Propel bottom- remember how much I love my Propel skirt? The WIN (remember, its first, second, or third place) can include age group categories, too- so long as the race director designates them. So don’t be discouraged if you see Kara Goucher and Paula Radcliffe at your next race, you can still win some sweet swag. For official rules, click here.

Have a tune up race before your big win? Well, bring in a race bib to any of their stores, you get 20% off a full-priced lucy item. Do several races? Get several pieces of lucy clothes to stockpile your wardrobe! Although there aren’t any lucy stores incredibly close to me (the nearest mall is over 100 miles away), chances are, I’ll be stopping at a lucy shop or two in the next few months, and lucky-for-me the promotion is going through the end of August.

Double score!

Get Movin’ Care Package Giveaway

This weekend’s temperatures soared to a blistery 38F in Houghton. I wanted to run around in a t-shirt and shorts, but luckily didn’t (my blindingly pale skin would have made me invisible on the white snow). All this warmer weather got me thinkin; Spring is on its way!

The days are getting a little longer, the snow is melting (well, at least it was melting… I heard a rumor of more snow this week in Houghton…). For a lot of people, “spring” means: no more sitting around watching the Olympics and eating snacks. Ok, maybe not. but really, the first race of the season is on the horizon. People, it’s time to get your butt in gear!

So I’m giving away something special. Well, many things, I suppose! Here’s some hints:

Something to get you going in the morning-

Something to keep you hydrated:

Something to ease your (muscle) pains:

Something to keep you udder-ly smooth:

To enter this grand giveaway, all you gotta do is comment on this post with what you think one (or two, or all!) of the giveaway items is (only 1 entry, no matter how many guesses you give me!). You can get a bonus entry if you tweet about it (use my twitter name, @megankillian, when you do- otherwise I won’t know!). A third entry will be awarded if you share this giveaway on your own blog. 🙂

I will be giving away TWO unique prizes to two different entrants. These prizes are huge, worth well over $60 retail (that’s a lot of goods, I think). The drawing will be held on March 5th, sometime in the afternoon, to get your spring break rolling juuust right. Each entrant will be assigned a unique number, and I’ll use random number generator to pick the three winners. Sorry, this contest is only valid for people with shipping addresses in the US (hey, I’m just a grad student, and I’m paying for the shipping!).

Disclaimer: all the products being given away were graciously donated by the companies from which they came (or snagged from my secret stash, because I like to share). Not all the items shown above will be guaranteed in both care packages.
