In order to celebrate reaching my big marathon goal at CIM, I want to share the excitement with all of you. What does that mean? The first ever giveaway on Just Keep Running!
The lovely ladies at Oiselle have agreed to send one of my readers a cool-weather ready, super soft, long sleeve tee with thumbholes. They look a little something like this.
I love these tees for running, lounging, and even wearing to work. They are 50/50 polyester/cotton and fit like a dream (fitted, but not snug.) I'm completely addicted to thumbholes for the extra coziness and warmth. You can read more about these tees on the Oiselle website. After the giveaway, we'll work with the lucky winner to figure out size and style (availability will depend on size.)
Now for the important part - how do you win? Here are the three ways to enter, one entry for each that you'd like to do. One comment per person is fine, no need to enter three separate comments.
1. Leave a comment telling me about your biggest running accomplishment in 2012!
2. Like Oiselle on Facebook and tell me in the comments.
3. Follow Oiselle on Twitter and tell me in the comments.
Note: I'd love for you to check out the blog and to follow me on Twitter and/or Facebook, but that won't be necessary to enter.
You can enter the giveaway between today and midnight on Tuesday, December 18. I'll choose the winner on Wednesday, December 19, and then the tee will be on its way! Good luck!

By Paulette – May 26, 2013As you may remember, I've been doing my best to follow the Hanson half marathon plan for the last couple of months with a race goal of the SF Half Marathon . The Hanson plans focus on building cumulative fatigue, and let me say right now I'm finding out how that works. My legs and body really feel it with every run at this point, and dare I say I haven't even run the plan to its fullest. There are quite a few things I love about the Hanson plans and also a few parts that have been very challenging for me. What I love. Training paces: The book outlines training paces based on your goal times. Although I initially thought they sounded too slow, I'm learning that keeping these paces isn't always as easy as it sounds once the legs are super tired. The paces start to make sense. Hard days versus easy days: They focus on hard effort days followed by easy effort days, meaning the hard days are really hard and the easy are really easy. I love this. I feel like I have
By Paulette – January 20, 2012This post is dedicated to a few friends who have recently started running or will be soon - they know who they are. And they ROCK! Running has done so much for my life, and I want people to know why I love it and to encourage others to stick with running too. The story of how I started is in the 'Why I Run' tab of this blog, but for this post I'm focused why I keep running. Here it is, not necessarily in order of importance. 1. Running relieves stress. When I feel anxious or have had a rough day, running always helps. I often can't wait until it's time to run that day, and sometimes I sneak out at lunch instead of waiting until after work. It makes me feel amazingly focused and happy for the rest of the day. I don't even run with music - I enjoy listening to my footsteps and freeing my mind in the great outdoors. 2. Running makes me happy. The runner's high is real, and I'm addicted. I love nothing more than feeling the exhausted-happiness I get af
By Paulette – February 25, 2013On Saturday, I ran the Lake Chabot Trail Half Marathon in Castro Valley, CA. It was my first Inside Trail Racing event, and I was very impressed with the race organization. I've been trail running for a few months now, but this is only my third trail race event; I love how much more laid back the races are and how everyone seems really into it. I know I am! Exploring new trails and parks is a fantastic way to spend a day. I didn't go into this race with specific goals, I wanted to run the hills as much as I could and use it as a hard training run. I ended up feeling really good, the weather was cool but sunny, and the lake views were pretty. This half didn't have as much elevation gain as many trail races and parts were on paved bike trail, so it was definitely easier than the other trail races I've done. The drive was only about 40 minutes from San Jose and I was there in plenty of time to get parking, pick up my race bib, and to chat with friends. I knew quite a f
