As promised, here is a giveaway to thank everyone for their continued support, in addition to providing a special welcome the all new people!
I have one Nike+SportBand in Black/Cool Grey/Silver. This item retails for $59.
According to the Nike website, this is a way to simplify your run, please read the details below.
The Nike+SportBand: Simple run-tracking on your wrist
Like the freedom of running without a media player? If so, the Nike+ SportBand could be your new favorite running partner. It tracks your time, distance, pace and calories burned in an easy-to-read display, plus it links to Nikeplus.com where you can join challenges, map your routes and connect with friends – all without an iPod ®.
- Tracks distance, pace, time elapsed and calories burned
- Memory captures and stores 30 hours of running data
- Removable Nike+ Link for quick connection to Nikeplus.com
- Pre-curved band for lightweight comfort
- Water resistance for running in the rain and rinsing off without worry
- Nike+ sensor included
How it Works
The Nike+ SportBand is easy to use. Just put it on your wrist, place the sensor under the sockliner of your left Nike+ ready shoe, and start running. The sensor measures your pace, distance, time elapsed and calories burned. This information is transmitted wirelessly to the Nike+ SportBand for real-time feedback while you train.
I thought this might be a good giveaway for this time of year after so many of you just crushed the Chicago Marathon (or other amazing races!) and are now looking to get back to nature and spend some time just doing what you love ….. RUNNING. Remember why you run. Remember that it doesn’t have to be so technical all the time. Remember to stop staring at your watch and look around to take in your surroundings. Remember that there is an entire community of people out there just waiting to connect with you and share your passion for running.
If you want to enter to win the Nike+SportBand, comment below and tell me your favorite thing about running. That’s it. Simple, right? I’ll use a random number generator and pick a winner on Monday at 9am. Good luck!
And as always,
** Happy Running ** Amanda – TooTallFritz ** email@example.com

Very cool idea!!!
So hard to pick one thing….friends, stress relief, nature, physical shape……..THE WAY I FEEL WHILE RUNNING AND WHEN YOUR DONE!!!
Awesome giveaway and amazing message! Thank you! My favorite thing about running is that it makes me feel like an athlete. I’m not very athletic and my hand-eye coordination is a bit shady so as a youngster I sat on the sidelines. I love that I am not a participant!

My favorite thing about running is the feeling I get no matter if it is one mile or eight miles…. makes me feel good!
My favorite thing keeps changing. First it was the weight loss, then it was the moment the run was done. I think I’ve turned a corner recently and it’s knowing that it’s me time, independent of anyone else’s needs or expectations of me.
My one favorite thing? That is tough! I guess my favorite thing about running is that when I’m running I feel most like myself. I’m in my element and I’m doing it only to please me!

My favorite thing about running is being alone with my thoughts and be able to take out any frustrations on the pavement or dreadmill
I thought about what I should put here and then realized that I actually wrote a Facebook status on this last week. I started running to lose weight, then I continued to run to stay fit and now I realized I run because its making me grow. I love how even on bad runs (when injuries, weather, or just fatigue from daily life doesn’t catch up my goal pace) I manage to always find a reason to stay positive and see the best of that run.

Nobody can take my individual feeling of “self” accomplishment away. The goals set and achieved are mine! I run to be the best that I can and to become a stronger woman inside and out! I run because I am able to, where some people are less fortunate and can’t. I run because it is a journey and lets me discover new places and hidden paths. I love to run!

I like feeling strong. I am a nearly 51 year old race walker and know that while I am not the fastest around, I am certainly faster than those who don’t try. Just do it!
I really love the feeling of my feet going into my running shoes. They’re just so comfy and familiar, I love it!
My favorite thing about it is the feeling of accomplishment. No one can take away the miles I have put in and the joy I feel from putting the time in to accomplish each day I am putting in the miles.
What do I like about running! What it does to my body and how I feel after I am done. i also have to say I have meet alot of new friends being a runner. The groups and support it just awesome!
My favorite things about running are the endorphins, the fresh air, and seeing my progress over time.

Spending time with my kids…. While my wife is out RUNNING
I love running because it is my stress reliever from the chaos of life. I feel very accomplished when I’ve gone for a long run, considering I’ve never been a good distance runner. It’s peaceful to run with my music and throw all my cares away.
Being alone. I’m a stay at home momma so hitting the pavement all by my lonesome is positively glorious. No questions, no crying, just running!
It gives me lots of time for prayer!
Running is my “Me” time, alone with my thoughts, getting my stress out, quiet time with my mind, or a fun time with my girls, chatting about life. Without it, I would go crazy!
