giveaway: win a thriv shirt!

Remember my awesome thriv shirt from  Fitbloggin’?

Would you like to win one of your own?

Well, it won’t have the Fitbloggin’ logo, but will be the same super-soft shirt made with a blend of organic cotton and bamboo. I sure wish I had more of these in my collection! (Why yes, I could buy myself more gear from their new online store … but I won’t let myself until I can clear more space in my overflowing closet and dressers!)

The nice folks at thriv are offering a shirt (either women’s or men’s) to one lucky reader. Unfortunately, shipping is only available in the U.S.  I’m sorry, international friends!

To enter, simply leave a comment and tell me about your favorite workout gear. Clothing, gadget, whatever.  What can’t you live without?

One comment per user, please.

But would you like another chance to win while helping out a good cause?

On May 23, I will be running the Maryland Half Marathon, benefiting the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center.

This sounds like a great cause and I’d love to help out.  I was going to give varying giveaway entries based on amount donated, but I’ve changed my mind. Anybody that donates any amount on my contribution page gets THREE extra entries. If you blog under a different name, email me  (see sidebar for address) and let me know who you are!

I wasn’t going to do retweet entries … but I want to spread the word!  I’ll count up to two retweets per person (one extra entry each). Please leave one comment to let me know to look for your tweets.  I’ll find them as  long as you reference @merrymishaps. Please link back to this page.

The contest will close on Friday, May 14 at 11:59pm EDT. Winner will be chosen by the scientific name-pulled-from-hat method by Sunday, May 16.

Good luck!

    Oooh. Hm. My favorite workout gear is probably my really cushy running socks ( but I can’t remember who makes them). They are like running on soft bouncy sponges. LOVE THEM. If only I could remember where I bought them.

    Good luck with the Half Marathon!

    My favorite workout gear is my pair of Saucony Grid Propel running shoes. I have wide feet and I experience a lot of pain when I’m on my feet a lot. Most athletic shoes do not help with this. However, my Saucony shoes help quite a bit. I don’t use them for running, but rather all of my fitness activities. I’d love to win a thriv shirt because I’ve heard so many good things about them, they’re eco-friendly, and since I sweat profusely when I work out, I believe they would help me to not look like I just stepped out of a pool in my clothes.

    Good luck with the half-marathon!

    P.S. I have also tweeted about this contest on Twitter (@JulieMaeReck).

    I absolutely cannot run without a good sports bra.

    I really love my Nike shorts. I forget what they’re called, but they’re dri-fit and longer than regular shorts so they don’t ride up. Super comfy!

    Good luck with the half!

    I’d have to say my Garmin – it feels too strange to not run without it!
    Even though I only have 2 technical hats, they are a must have for me too. I see mrs hat purchases in my near future!
