CIM Celebration Giveaway

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!

  12. We had the same running accomplishment this year! PR at CIM - the craziest, wettest, windiest PR :) Also, I have to say becoming an SF Marathon ambassador was a huge goal/achievement too! And I love these shirts, so I hope I win :)

  15. I ran a PR at every distance but the 50K, but that isn't my biggest accomplishment of the year. Both of my goal marathons this year had awful weather (Cellcom Green Bay and CIM) where a big PR was out of the question. I managed to finish them the best I could and not beat myself up over the things I couldn't control. I even squeezed out a small PR at CIM. :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh, fun giveaway!! My biggest 2012 running accomplishment was finally getting my sub 2-hour half marathon!! I also really really enjoyed running Ragnar with Nuun and getting PR's in both the 10K and 5K...busy year for me now that I think about it!

    ReplyDelete
  17. My two biggest accomplishments this year were a PR in the half marathon this spring, and finishing my first marathon just a few weeks ago!!

  22. 2012 was a really great running year for me. I ran my 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th 1/2 marathons, I ran my first trail race (#6 1/2 marathon), and FINALLY PR'd my 1/2 time. My fastest time was from my first 1/2, and it took til #7 to finally PR. It was such a great feeling! I was able to run in Europe while on vacation, in beautiful towns and backdrops, and was able to run along the outside of the Olympic marathon course, in between watching the womens and mens races. Memories you just can't replace or duplicate!

  31. AND my biggest running accomplishment this year is learning that running is unpredictable. There will be good running days and there will be bad running days, but you take the good, the bad and the ugly and you just keep on running...! So while it is not some major PR or award, to me it is still an accomplishment that whatever happens, I still love to run! :)

  42. And... my biggest accomplishment: battling through several injuring or health issues and hitting 10 miles again! Double digits was a re–milestone for me. I'm not a big racer, just run because I love it, but 2013 will also hold a couple races to continue to grow as a runner.

    ReplyDelete
  43. My biggest accomplishment in 2012 was completing in this year one but TWO full marathons and seven half marathons! I also met my goal of sub-4 in my 2nd full which I'll forever be proud of.

  44. My biggest accomplishment this year in 2012 was running AND completing my first marathon (BOSTON!) with team DANA FARBER CANCER INSTITUTE. I was able to raise $7,000 for the institute through fundraising, and ran with team Dana Farber. It was quite the experience, one I will never forget. I also was able to cross the finish line, in 90 degree weather!

  45. I came back from a knee injury and feel stronger than ever!

  49. I moved to San Diego in the summer of 2011 and the weather was just so perfect for running. I started running practically everyday, every where! I had kinda given up half marathons since I had run 2 and they were, um, disasters! But the running here in SD was awesome so I signed up for the Carlsbad Half and just wanted to break 2 hours. Crossed the finish in 1:49

  55. Finishing a half marathon in July when I was hurting and really wanted to quit for the majority of the race? Not my smartest decision to push through the pain, but I felt so proud crossing the finish line!

    ReplyDelete
  56. My biggest running accomplishment was starting to run again after several years and significant weight gain. Am training for a February 2013 Half marathon, and four months ago I couldn't run one block. I'm up to nine miles as of this week. Run-Walk for the win!

  62. My biggest accomplishment of 2012 was racing my first short distance race and getting 2nd Female. Running it made em realize how fun short term running goals can be and how well they work with graduate school. Since that first race I have become much faster and realized some potential that lay within me. I'm looking forward to the Eugene full and thre rest fo the 2013 season!

  63. My biggest running accomplishment this year was getting back to running. I went from nearly a year and a half of no miles to now being on pace to run 50 miles this month. I am so proud of myself for getting back to the running I once was, but the best part is that I'm even an better running now than I was before :)
