Before I get to the fun giveaway, let me go on record as having had a cruddy run. I know! Me! A cruddy run! Can you believe it?
It's true -- I did. I consider myself really fortunate in that I love to run and I generally genuinely enjoy every run. Probably 95% of my runs are great. Seriously. But yesterday was not.
It wasn't terrible. It was just blah. My legs had nothing. They were all worn out from too many hours of hopscotch and soccer with my little guy (yes, again) and they felt heavy. I was running along at a 9:20 pace but the effort felt as if I were running 7:20 and yet my body felt like it was hardly moving. Weird. I managed 4.5 miles and that was good -- they chased the killer headache I'd had away and left me hoping for a better run today.
And since today's run is speedwork, it had better be better!
Confession over, now let's get to the giveaway!
Have you tried Barney Butter? I have and I like it. I'm a spread girl, though, fond of peanut butter, cashew butter, Nutella, almond butter, butter butter, you name it. Barney Butter is a peanut-free almond butter and it's tasty. It's also gluten free, contains no trans fats or hydrogenated oils and has half the saturated fat of peanut butter. In other words, it is pretty good stuff.
Barney Butter comes in crunchy and smooth varieties and is packaged in jars and in single-serve squeeze packs.
This is where the giveaway comes in! When I was contacted to host a Barney Butter giveaway, I jumped at the chance because I like the product AND I think that the single-serve packs are great for runners and others on the go. So here's the deal:
Barney Butter is giving away a box of 12 Barney Butter single-serve squeeze packs to one lucky reader! They are also giving everyone who enters the giveaway a $2 off coupon good on any product on their web site (www.barneybutter.com).
Follow THIS LINK to get to the entry page. You must enter the giveaway through the link, not by commenting here (although, feel free to drop me a comment, wish me a good run, say hi, whatever!).
The giveaway runs through May 13th and one winner will be chosen at random from all the entries.
So, go now! HERE! And good luck!
