Happy Thursday friends and runnahs! You know what I love about Thursday? It’s one day closer to Friday AND one more day closer to the weekend. Bliss!

Of course this means one day closer to my BIG race, but not much I can do at this point. Well, except eat Cheez-Its and panic.

So in order to divert my attention away from a post about panic and thoughts of riding so long on the bike with so many other people, let’s have a give away!

Today, I’m thankful for a cool give away!

Champion was so cool to send me a pair of shorts and a jacket for review/give away. I decided to test out the shorts and give the jacket away. That’s how I nice I am.

I got up at the butt crack ‘o dawn yesterday to run and made P-Funk take a photo of me in the YMCA parking lot. We were giggling as she took the photo because A. it was way too early for photos and B. I made her take a pic of my butt.

See how cute the shorts are? And they were really light. Plus I love the pocket in the back for the key. Theses shorts are awesome and I would totally buy them. They also have some reflective stuff on them so that when you are running at O’ Dark Thirty you are more visible. (I must also add that I truly love the Champion Sports Bras at Target. I know that the Redhead does too!)

As for the jacket, I haven’t worn it out of consideration for the winner and didn’t want to get my boob sweat all up in it. Whoever wins it will just have to let us know how it is.

Here are the deets on the jacket:

Champion Double Dry Ultimate All-Weather Soft-Shell Women’s Jacket

Super-soft bonded shell resists both wind and water…protects you from cold and chill…wicks moisture to keep you dry.

Sleek ergonomic seams streamline your silhouette. (They’re triple-stitched for strength and flat-locked for non-chafe comfort.)

Details make the difference: tag-free fabric-taped mock-neck; invisible zippered pockets; zip-up media pocket; white reflective details; full-length lock-down zipper with gel pull and cozy storm flap.

The jacket is a women’s small so if it’s not your size or you prefer to wear men’s stuff, you know, like, if you’re a dude and all, then stand by for a more gender neutral give away next week.

Go to the Champion website and tell me what other items you’d like to try. And become a fan of their facebook page, I am! (You can facebook them from their website.) I’ll choose a winner on Monday.

Oh, and one more thing, What are you thankful for today?
