First Giveaway!

Happy Friday everybody! We had a long day yesterday driving to Salt Lake (it is a 3 hour trip each direction). We took Noah (two years old), Solomon (five), Marcus (six) and Belane (seven). We went to Shriner's and got Noah's new wheelchair (it is awesome! I will post pics on my family blog later today if you are interested) and Shorty and Belane had their regular appointments at Primary Childrens.

After all the medical stuff Josh and I took the kids to PF Changs. We had never been, and we had two gift certificates that we got courtesy of running the Rock n Roll marathon and half marathon in Las Vegas. It was yummy!

So yesterday ended up being my "off" day for running for the week and today I did my intervals. I did four miles total, with a one mile warm up at 9:22 pace, then half mile intervals at a 7:30 pace with a quarter mile recovery jog in between, and a quarter mile recovery at the end. Then I did my strength training, which I still don't love, but has gotten a lot easier and I am believing will make me a stronger athlete all around. :)

On tap this weekend I have nine miles tomorrow and 12 on Sunday. Fingers crossed for clear enough roads and warmer temps than last week (it has to be warmer than 1 degree right? Please say yes!)

But enough about me... on to the giveaway!

CSN Stores has offered a $55 promotional code that can be used at any of their online stores for one of my lucky readers! $55 can go a long way and CSN has a TON of great products. They have a wide variety of furniture and you could choose anything from with a LCD TV Stand or something bigger like bunkbeds and dining sets. They also have outdoor items, baby and children's items, rugs, decor, bed and bath...tons of items that you could use this $55 for or towards.

The $55 will be given away to one reader from this blog or my family blog and you can enter on one blog or on both blogs to double your chances. I will combine all of the entries from both blogs and randomly choose a winner next Friday, February 18.

To enter on this blog you can do one or all of the following, and you can earn one entry for each. Please leave a comment for each entry. And please note that the ways to enter are slightly different on each blog.

- Become a "follower" of this blog (scroll down on the right hand side and click "Follow") and let me know, or tell me that you already are.

- Add http://seemomrunfar.blogspot.com/ to your blog roll and let me know you did (or tell me I am already on your blog roll)

- Post about this giveaway on your blog and/or on Facebook and link back to this blog (one entry for each way you share about the giveaway)

- Go to CSN Stores and look around and leave me a comment telling me something you might buy with your $55 winnings. :)

Remember you can head over to Full House, Full Hands, Full Hearts and enter over there too. Thanks for participating and good luck! (I have some running specific giveaways coming up soon as well).

I have gotten some good questions to answer and have some fun topics coming up for running posts. More soon!

Hmmm...if we won, I'd have to consult w/ the husband about what to use the $55 for. But I like the bunk beds a lot. If we could get our own house I'd consider the outdoor play equipment too....
