The GIVEAWAY You Don't Want to Miss

Okay, readers. Brace yourselves. I have one hell of a giveaway. That generous company called Champion not only sent me some great running gear to review* (see here), but wants to send you a box of goodies as well. How does that sound? The lucky winner of this giveaway will get ALL of the following, sent direct to you from Champion:

Black training jacket: size small, medium or large

Black semi-fit pants (to match training jacket): size small, medium or large

Purple Double Dry Long Sleeve Shirt: size medium or large

Pink Zip Up Fleece: size medium

No, I am not kidding. All of this could be yours. If you are homeless or just sitting around naked waiting to win something I hope you are reading this blog because you are going to outfitted like nobody's business.

If you are a man who reads my blog and you don't tend to wear pink fleeces, feel free to enter to win this stuff for the woman in your life. If you are a gay man with no "special" woman in your life feel free to enter to win for your mom or sister (or maybe you do wear pink fleeces). Note to self: tell Ken to enter the giveaway.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Champion gear is great because it's easy to find (Target anyone?), and is affordable. The best part is you don't sacrifice quality because it is inexpensive. It holds up really well even if you soil yourself and wash it often.

I wear my fleece all the time and it is as soft as my soul patch. It was finally warm enough the other day to run in my long sleeved tech shirt. That lemon yellow thing is a great piece of apparel. Soft, good fit (not too baggy, but not so tight you can see the outline of my large bosom), nice design. If you don't believe me, just look at me for god's sake. I am in heaven and I am clearly a more efficient and faster runner because I wear this shirt. Well, not really, but I do love the shirt.

So, what are you waiting for? Probably for me to tell you what to do to enter. First, reach around behind you touch your spine. Next stand up and lift one foot in the air. Then, sing any song you remember from your prom while simultaneously arching your back. Done? Okay now here's what to do.

I'm going to be original:

  1. Leave a comment on my blog about anything you want. Feel free to sing the praises of Champion running apparel if you've tried it before (1 entry)
  2. Follow me - not on the street at night or around the house, but on this blog (+1 entry)
  3. Mention this giveaway on your blog or at the mall (+ 1 entry)
  4. Become a fan of ShutupandRun on Facebook by clicking here. Thanks Julie for reminding me (+1 entry)
  5. Slip me a 20 spot in the mail

Good luck! You do not need to have a blog to enter. Just leave a comment anyway. Giveaway ends a week from today: February 16, 2010. Sorry, shipping is only to those within the United States.

*Champion sent me all of this gear for free to review on my blog. I did not pay for this stuff and am not paying for any of the stuff offered in the giveaway, including postage. Got that FTC?

    ReplyDelete

  18. Holy crap! I just pooped myself reading that and therefore need new champion pants!!!!! My hubby would love it if I had a pink fleece to make me look more feminine these days! :-) You already know I am a stalker, I mean follower. I will add some linkage soon!

    ReplyDelete
  19. that IS a great giveaway! I am short on workout clothes, so this would be great!

    ReplyDelete
  20. And I've been following for some time now :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I love champion too. And while I would be thrilled to win, I would love that yellow tech shirt you've been sporting. Too cute. I can't wait to get that color when it becomes available, (I looked at target in my neighborhood and they didn't have it!). I love Champion, and while it's reasonably priced I don't have a fleece or coat or pants from them! I only have bought sports bras and shirts oh, and tank tops. I could live in those.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  22. And I'll mention it in my blog.

    yllek82.blogspot.com

    Thanks again!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I don't think the mediums will fit me but I can keep running my fat butt off or I can pass them on to someone else if I win. I'd be fine with either.

    ReplyDelete
  24. And I'm linking to you right now.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I am a follower too. BTW, I really like Champion running stuff and I am not just saying because I want more.:) :) :)
    Oh, I am putting this giveaway on my blog. (nobody reads it anyway so I am not really inviting any competition).
    Now for that $20... :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Awesome giveaway. I am a strong believer in taking the "man" down (e.g., big expensive companies)! I am a follower already via google reader.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm a brand-new follower of your blog, and would love to win some champion gear! I wear their sports bras and totally love them! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. EEEEEEKK! I love Champion stuff..it's great quality gear at a reasonable price. I love their running skirts! Count me in!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I LOVE champion--especially the stuff at Target since I can actually afford it ;)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Who doesn't love free stuff...especially free stuff to replace me perpetually stinking running clothes. My teammates would greatly appreciate the smell of new apparel on our Saturday runs...they are running by me for nearly three hours at a time now.

    ReplyDelete
