SPIbelt giveaway winner

This is how we refuel at our house. 

Welcome to cool, Tracy. And your grandma called, and she wants her fanny pack back now that you've got a fancy new SPIbelt! It's like a fanny pack on crack. Please email me your contact info at yomommaruns at

And thank you to all of you for entering and sharing this giveaway! I've got a couple more giveaways planned for the next couple of weeks, like a case of Core Power (which was surprisingly tasty) and more.

I know some of you love giveaways, but some people probably hate them. As a self-proclaimed runnerd (run+nerd), I love testing all the gadgets and fuels and sharing free stuff and my opinions, which are also free and worth every bit of it. So I'll continue to do giveaways of products that I think are worth your time to try out.

Do you love or hate blog giveaways? Indifferent? I love giveaways and enter them on other blogs all the time! I've won some really cool stuff that way -- even a pair of New Balance 890s from the Boring Runner earlier this year.

What's your favorite runnerd gadget?


  1. I don't mind the idea of giveaways. I like them less if there are 82 hoops to jump through, just to get your name in the drawing.
    I do tend to shy away from entering those offering goodies I wouldn't necessarily use. I'd rather give another lucky reader a chance.

  2. I would love giveaways if I ever won anything! ;-) Nah, I think they're fun. But I tend to enter once, and that's it; I don't repost on Twitter, Facebook, etc.

    Runnerd gadgets: I don't really own any! My husband loves them, though.

  3. I enjoy giveaways because it 1.) tells you about products, 2) if you win lets you try a product for free (so then when you see how wonderful it is you can buy more) 3.) It's a great way to find out about new blogs to follow/read. I only try to enter ones I know I'll be able to use/have a need for. Don't want to take away something from someone else after all! I don't really have any runnerd "gadgets"....I have my watch that just times and does nothing fancy, my shoes and my gear.

  4. Congrats to Tracy!!!! I love giveaways but like others mention, only enter the ones for products I would actually use or like to try! :-)

  5. I leave a comment for giveaways (who doesn't like free stuff??) but I'm not on twitter so hardly ever do anything beyond my one comment. I've never won from any blog but there's always a first time for everything!!

  6. I love giveaways but also only enter for stuff that I would actually like to use. I also don't usually do all the extra things for entries because I find Twitter gets a little jammed with "I entered such and such giveaway..." posts. I do find out about some cool ones that way though. Giveaways are kind of a double-edged sword that way!

  7. I like giveaways too...I especially like winning them!! And like others, I'll leave a comment and will often follow someone on FB and Tw if I like their blog...but I won't post about them on either. But they're so much fun!
