Champion Bra Giveaway Made Simple

First, thank you so much for your comments regarding the passing of my Granddad. I read every single one.

Recently I got a coupon for a free sport's bra from Champion. I thought maybe one of you could have it. Any style, any size found at Champion USA. I recently had my breasts removed, so I don't need a new bra. I also had all of my toenails extracted. Both boobs and toenails are such an nuisance while running, so why have them?

Okay, I jest – I just wanted to pass this on to one of you because I felt like it. If you did not think I was nice, you should re-think that thought. And, never fear! My boobs are in tact, as are my toenails.

#proof. Do not be jealous of my chipping polish, my long finger-like Morton’s toe, my neck that resembles chicken skin or my stylish cycling jersey.

To enter – all I want to know is:

What would you tell a newborn baby is the most important tip for living a good life? (assuming a newborn could understand what the hell you were saying).

Leave one comment, and that is your entry. If that is too simple, feel free to spin around and do jumping jacks naked while eating a bagel and listening to “Shook Me All Night Long.” It’s up to you. But whatever you do, DO NOT follow my blog, like me on Facebook or breathe a word about this giveaway to anyone else.

I’ll pick a winner on Monday 7/30. Have fun.

  5. Not sure if you're joking about the "newborn" thing, so I'll go ahead and follow the rule (sarcastic or not). Get lots of sleep. Not that I'm an adult, I'm regretting all of those nights I kept my parents awake. I'm convinced it's why I'm so tired now. :)

  6. Because I seem to tell this to friends and family a lot:

    ReplyDelete
  10. Live it to its' fullest and embrace the mistakes/bad moments as much as you embrace the moments that seem to flow perfectly.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Never give up on yourself. When you feel like giving up, remember why you held on for so long in the first place.

    & when buying running shoes, buy 1/2 size larger than normal. ;0)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Most important? Be yourself. Do not let others choose your path.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Just take the boob, dangit. After all, breast milk sets the foundation for lots of good stuff. (Says the girl who's baby had a crappy latch and quit nursing after six months. This is just what I would have told him.)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Practice kindness and consideration to yourself and others in everything you do.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  16. The right thing to do is always the harder thing to do.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Most important thing for living a good life is.....listen to your parents. They may know what they are talk about.(Typed as my 3 are scream and fighting in the back ground).

    ReplyDelete
  18. Well I'm about to have a newborn, hence the need for a new bra. So I think the most important thing we're focusing on at our house is to be considerate of others and to have an awareness that there are other people in the world

    ReplyDelete
  19. Love yourself. Sleep well. Eat well. And play as much as possible.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Despite what news headlines would suggest, there is good to be found everywhere. You just have to choose to see it.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Don't be afraid to learn more. Keep exploring.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Are you kidding? I would never presume to tell a newborn how to live. They have it figured out: eat regularly, poop regularly, sleep when you feel like it, try something new every day.

    Or, be nice to your mom.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Pay attention to nonverbals. They speak volumes. And enjoy pooping in your pants right now, because you will spend the rest of your life preventing that from happening.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Make your life about something bigger than yourself. No matter how hard life seems, count your blessings. Follow your dreams. Smile. Give love freely, without expectation. Believe in miracles.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I would tell the baby: be happy every single moment of your life and always go for greatness! and pay as much attention to what you eat as well as what games you want to play. Because if you do that, you will be able to play for many many years strong and healthy."Let your food be the medicine as your medicine should be your food" ***maybe too deep for a baby...but hey, I repeat that to my son since he was a baby and he is 8 years old and have a pretty good idea of what he has heard his parents talk about all his life; so not only say that to the baby, but repeat it, and repeat it for the rest of his life****

    ReplyDelete
  37. Ok newborn baby for future reference. If you need to poop, stop what you are doing and go poop, otherwise you will fill your shorts and it is not cool to have your shorts filled with poop.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Be kind to everyone because we are all fighting our own battles on the inside and outside.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Learn to run, before walking. You get around a lot faster!

    ReplyDelete
  40. enjoy this time up until you are 18, and then you have these things called responsibilities that kind of suck.

    ReplyDelete
  41. If it's a girl: Don't pray for big boobs - they are a pain in the ass and get in the way of everything. If it's a boy: Boobs are meant for nurishing infants, not for your personal pleasure, so keep your hands to yourself!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Don't sweat the small stuff. Save it for your first marathon.

  54. You will be hurt more than you thought possible at some point by someone you trusted with a piece of your heart. It is THEM not YOU! And it will make you stronger, better if you can remember that :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Cry when you need to cry, laugh when you need to laugh. Don't let others tell you when you need to do something. You were born knowing how to live a happy life, the key is remembering you already know this.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Being "pretty" on the inside and be a good person is way more important than all the success and beauty people try for. Care about people, do nice things, and don't be hurtful.

  67. Dude, I love your writing style and attitude. I also would love to have my toenails extracted and my boobs removed (though I did run so much regularly 4 years ago that I almost didn't have boobs).

    I love champion bras. They are really great for the price. Thanks for having a giveaway.

    And the thing I'd tell a newborn baby? Shit happens. You can't plan everything out, but plan to deal with the shit that happens (except the shit that happens in said baby's diapers, cuz mom gets to deal with that).

  89. Giggle often! Life will always have those moments, brief or long, where the world crushes down on you. It's so much easier to go through it all with a great sense of humor and giggling (or laughing). This also applies during scooting, crawling, walking, and running.

  113. I'm trying to make my comment SUAR friendly- so my answer involved POOP.

    To Newborns: Enjoy free pooping- all day every day- right into your diaper, blow it out, poop up your back- soil your crib. Someone else will have to clean you up and your pooped mess. Later in life- you will have to get your lazy buttocks up and poop in the toilet or behind a tree and wipe yourself and clean up after youself. If you will be a mother someday- you will personally clean up dog poop, husband poop, kid poop ....

    So poop freely newborn, let it go...and enjoy life.

But in all seriousness, I hope he sees how happy running makes mommy and becomes a runner himself, so that we can share the gift of running together. I see the races you do with your kids and hope to do the same someday!

  128. I guess it depends on what you mean by a "good" life, but I will equate good with happy and say this: "Don't forget how to play...especially on the swings." I am convinced that the happeist kids in the world are those on the swings :)

    ReplyDelete
  145. Listen to your heart, but also to the needs of others. Learn as much as you can about the world. Be as active as you can. Push yourself - you will treasure the most that which did not come easy. Seek out the new, the different, the unusual. But maintain a base of security and responsibility to venture forth from. Question your preconceptions, your dogmas, your stereotypes. Give and receive love in all its many, many forms. Be kind, and expect kindness in return.
