Saucony giveaway!

I told you I was way behind on my reviews and giveaways and I wasn't kidding -- here's my second one this week with more to come over the next few days. Brace yourselves!

Today I have RUNNING SHOES for you, people. Yup, pretty much the numero-uno piece of gear that every runner needs. OK, some of you chesty runners, and all of my fellow breast-feeders out there, would probably vote for sports bras but, you know, running shoes are up there on the list of important gear. Unless you are running barefoot then you need running shoes. And a good pair is always better than a crappy one so, if you're anything like me you end up spending a few hundred dollars on shoes each year.

Yikes, right? I know. But, c'mon, running is worth it!

So, anyway, about these running shoes that I have for you. Well, it's actually Onlineshoes.com that has them for you. They have offered to give one of my lucky readers $100 to spend on Saucony running shoes! You can pick out whatever you'd like. Maybe even something minimalist, if you're so inclined, like these bad boys:


The stylish black and pink Saucony Hattori. That's what I would go for, because they look ever so slick. And probably fast. And who couldn't use a little slick speed in their life? But, like I said, you could pick any of the Saucony shoes -- and Onlineshoes.com has plenty of them.

Do you want to win $100 to spend on Sauconys at OnlineShoes.com?

To enter -- leave me a comment and let me why need some new shoes.

Additional entries:

As always, you can gain extra entries. Remember, though, you must complete the required entry first! (Leave one comment per entry for the additional ones to count):

This giveaway will run through Thursday, June 2 at 11:59pm EST and the winner will be announced on Friday.

If you can't wait to find out if you win, OnlineShoes.com is also having a Memorial Day special with 20% off regular orders of $80 and up. The code to use for that is 1SUN.

Good luck!

I just bought my first pair of saucony for trail running. I love that they have narrow enough shoes for my little feet. I'm soon going to need to replace my pavement shoes and I'll love to try Saucony for that.

I've had my current pair of Saucony running shoes since February of 2010 and am in desperate need of a new pair! Being on a full-time student, part-time working budget has really delayed my new shoe purchase!

Shellyrm ~ just a country runner said...

Over a 1000 miles on my "everyday" training Sauconys. I've been wearing them since the beginning of the year for everything but my races. I wore out 2 sets of insoles but with my racing expenses I have put off buying new training shoes. I, no my feet really need a new pair and I am long term Saucony loyal!

5 Miles 2 Empty said...

yay! Awesome!! I am hosting a giveaway as well, but I'll tell you why I need knew running shoes...i have one pair right now. I know i need to have a pair for rotation and for different types of training, like my long runs and my shorter speed work! Plus I am poor...aren't we all? I can hardly support my running habit. I would sell a kidney if it didn't mean i would be down and out for a while to recover. =/

Thanks for the giveaway!!! =)

~K~ said...

Let me tell you why i need new shoes: I have one GOOD pair (i probably have much lower standards than you professionals on what is "good", but these are my first more expensive ones) and oh, can you feel the diff between the good and not-as-good ones! The problem is i wanna keep that pair for only running, but then i worry i'll injure something cross training in the not-so-good ones...Some new (Free) ones would be wonderful!

S Club Mama said...

Ok I need new shoes because I don't know how many miles are on my shoes. I bought my shoes at Plato's Closet (a second hand store) for like $14. They had good tread and I thought that was a reasonable way to know whether a shoe was useable. I've now learned that's not really true. But I don't have money for new shoes...unless I win some!

Why do I need shoes?
after a knee injury this winter, PT advised me that I had been running in the wrong shoe for my foot (thanks local running store!) so all my kayano's gotta go and it's HELLO Saucony Slowtwitch!!
This would be PERFECT

I need new shoes because I just started running and I don't think the shoes I am wearing are running shoes. I think they are cross trainers so I would like to try a "real pair" of running shoes.
Thanks for the chance to get some
