Due North Traction Aids Giveaway

The weather here in Alabama keeps creeping up for the Rocket City Marathon this weekend.

Forecast from Sunday:


Forecast from Monday:


I keep telling myself that showers are a good thing. They make runners feel refreshed and alive, and with showers come clouds to block out the evil, evil sunshine. Sorry, sun, normally I love you but not for Saturday.

But not everyone is getting treated to warm, rainy weather, and even those who are know that things could change overnight. To get you ready for this winter's inevitable (unless you live in Florida) snow and ice, Due North sent over six more pairs of traction aids for you guys to try out!


In case you didn't see these when I posted about them last month, here's a quick refresher from the company:
The versatile Due North® Everyday Traction Aids are ideal for outdoor winter activities that require urban and light-duty casual, dress and athletic footwear. Whether you're shoveling the sidewalk, walking the dog or just running errands, the lightweight yet durable design of these Traction Aids will give you the confidence you need when walking or running on icy and snowy conditions. The webbed sole design allows the Due North® Everyday Traction Aid to adapt to the shape of your shoe, working with almost any style of shoe in your closet, and its low profile fit means it's nearly invisible to the eye. When not in use, the compact design makes them easy to store in small places such as, your coat pocket, handbag, briefcase or the glove box in your car.
If you are interested in purchasing them, you can buy them here or use this search engine to find a local store that carries Due North products. 

So here's the deal, I have four pairs of size small/medium (fits women's 5-9 and men's 3-7) and two pairs of size large/x-large (fits women's 10+ and men's 8-14) to give away. Those are U.S. sizes. They sent more sizes this time to help include everyone. Yes, that means you.

To enter: Let me know which size traction aids you would need in a comment.

  2. I'd go for the S/M (I'm a 8.5 in running shoes). These would be pretty spectacular for when I run the Manhattan Half Marathon in blizzard conditions in January. Woooo!
