A Giveaway For Friday- Vlog Style

by tessa8m on February 17, 2012

in giveaway

Happy Friday my friends!

It has been too long since I have had a giveaway and well… it’s time high time for one!

Sorry for sound like a broken record, but I have to say again how much I always appreciate and LOVE your genuine thoughts and comments on my posts! We had a great discussion going on from Wednesday, and I just look forward to hearing each and everyone of your words you feel like sharing. I get a separate email for each comment I receive and when my inbox says +1 or whatever, well I get psyched to see what y’all have to say :)

I know, getting all mushy and doofy on you right there, I just can’t help it! Feelin the love ;)

And because of your rockstar status, I want to have this giveaway to show MY appreciation for all of you! Here is what the giveaway is all about:

YouTube Preview Image

Hmm it kind of looks like I have a black left eye in this… but nope, it was just recorded at night. If you don’t feel like watching the 5-minute video this is what the prize includes:

  • A 2012 Runner’s World Calendar
  • Various healthy, nutritious energy/protein bars
  • Candy/sweets and whatever else I feel like throwing in there :)

And to enter (leave a separate comment for each):

  1. Tell me the best or most positive memory/aspect of 2012 thus far.
  2. Follow me on Twitter and tweet about this giveaway- I want to win the @runnersworld calendar and energy bar giveaway from @Tessa8m!
  3. Follow my blog by subscribing in the upper left section of the home page.

*I would like to add that Runner’s World is certainly not sponsoring this giveaway… I just get this calendar every year and thought someone else should enjoy it for 2012 :)

You can enter until Tuesday the 21st and I will announce the winner on Wednesday!

Best of luck to you and I hope you all have a most GLORIOUS weekend :D

My favorite memory so far has been the day me and my best friend had a sleepover ( she’s my roommate too) and we both woke up at the butt crack of dawn but stayed in bed over two hours laughing and telling stories. I never just lay in bed i always pop right up to run or get the day started. But it was so fun and nice to enjoy the simple small things in life.

Hi.

I’m not sure whether I can participate since I live in Europe, the Netherlands (you know Amsterdam, tullips and wooden shoes) but I would love to.
My favorite memory from this year is they day that I got to leave the out-patient therapy that I was in and all the wonderful things my group mates had to say about me. They were so right and kind about me.

My favorite memory so far this year was right after i was told i had a stress fracture in my hip and had to be on crutches for 6 weeks, my entire team (im on my college’s track team) came over to my apartment, brought ice cream, and we all just hung out and goofed around. It definitely put me in a better mood and made me truely appreciate my teammates

My favorite memory of 2012 so far was probably the night I baked a (penis..haha) cake with my friend for one of our friend’s birthday. I didn’t freak out over calories or feel like I had to immediately go and run 12 miles for taste testing it. It was just an awesome example to myself about how far I’ve come. I felt so great and happy and just enjoyed my friend’s company instead of worrying. It was awesome ( :

My favorite memory so far this year was stepping on the scale for the first time in month and NOT caring what it said. I only wanted to know where I was at. I battled with disordered eating/thinking for the last two years and I can finally say I am getting over it! I am moving on! I am living! I am getting married this summer and I love my body! :-) felt sooo good.

My favorite memory of this year so far is a toss up between getting my internship and going to a taping of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. My internship is a huge step for me because it is actually in the field I want for my future career. Jimmy Fallon was awesome because I love him so much. I have been a huge fan of his for so many years so seeing him in person was so great. Also being able to share that with my sister brother, cousin and best friend made it a million times better :)
Have a great Friday!

My favorite memory from this year would be placing 3rd in my first ever 10k! My dad walked the 5k (he can’t run because he has back problems) and cheered and clapped for me as we passed each other on the course. It didn’t hurt that we got free pancakes and cocoa afterwards either, and I got a bottle of maple syrup for coming in 3rd!

The best thing so far is officially having booked my annual early Spring trip to Florida to spend quality time with one of my dearest family friends. : )

so far, my best memory of 2012 would have to be my mom visiting me one weekend after having a completely horrible week. she dropped everything and decided to be with me instead. and that’s why i love her :)

My favorite memory of 2012 was just going out for cheap drinks at a dive bar last night with my co-worker and venting about all the ridiculous shit we were experiencing at work. It’s hard to find the time to relax being a caseworker, and people who aren’t in the field just don’t understand the stress. It was oddly comforting and totally necessary after witnessing my first seizure in person and dealing with a really depressing situation with another family.

2012 is great so far – the best thing is that I’m doing what *I* want to do this year and setbacks are just opportunities to try different things. I’m loving my positive attitude and everything’s been going swimmingly – because I’ve decided that that’s what going to happen! :)

My favorite memory of 2012…..well, I can’t say anything exciting has happened, but there have been a lot of positive moments!! Life started really looking up for me at the start of the year – I started taking classes, started figuring out what I wanted to do with my life, I’ve reconnected with so many of my friends that I’d kind of lost touch with earlier in the year with being kind of down/not myself. I can’t say things on the running/workout front are going the way I want, but two positive things that have come out of it are that 1. I’ve gotten really good at swimming and biking and 2. I’ve learned that, if I take four or five days off from exercise, I will not, in fact, blow up like a balloon and will shockingly still fit into my jeans at the end of the day lol. Obviously I can’t wait to get back to training hard, but I know this isn’t the last time in my life I’ll need to take a break from training, so I think from now on I can be more chill about it when the time comes that I need to do it ya know?

Some of my swimmers had their last meet ever yesterday and came up to talk to me about how much they appreciate all that I have done for them this season and how they really hope that we can keep in touch since they are graduating. It really made me recognize how much of an impact I can have on those around me! So eye opening! Can’t wait for more things in 2012!

Most positive aspect of this year so far. . . . we found a house that feels like our home. We haven’t moved in yet, but the seller’s are amazing and we’re meeting with the new neighbors this weekend. It may not be grandiose, over 2000 sq feet with walk in closets or hugeass master suite, but it’s cozy, comfortable and most importantly it feels good. And the huge backyard helps too :)

The best part of 2012 so far was completing my first half marathon with my dad. It was the most amazing feeling. We ran it in a huge snow storm, and everyone running was just having so much fun! We all laughed and joked around the entire course Nobody worried about times or pace, we all just wanted to finish and attempt to stay warm. It was a really amazing experience and I’m so glad I did it.
