Race day is almost here!
Race day is almost here!

Wow. Just wow.

The response to this week’s giveaway—two free entries to the Gazelle Girl Half Marathon in Grand Rapids on April 13—sure made a splash. I LOVED hearing from each and every one of you who entered this contest. Thank you, thank you. Reading your running stories and why you’d like to participate in this race was so very inspiring. I truly wish I had a free entry to give to everyone who commented.

I have just two to give away, however, thanks to a collaboration with Michigan-based Gazelle Sports and my good friends over at Another Mother Runner. I hope that those who didn’t win consider signing on and joining me and thousands of other runners at this spring race.

Here are the winners of the giveaway, chosen using random.org’s third-party draw service:

1.)  Kathy Griffin, who ran the event last year and loved it despite less-than-ideal weather. “Anything put on by Gazelle Sports is usually top class,” she says.

2.)  Rhonda Toogood, who wrote that she wanted to run this race because it  takes place just six days before her 50th birthday. “I only started running in my late 30s and I am so glad I did. Also, I want to get a PR. I have finally been injury free all winter and running and training a lot. My goal is below 2:05!”

Kathy and Rhonda, please email MRG at michiganrunnergirl [at] gmail [dot] com to redeem your prize.

Thanks again to all who entered this giveaway! Happy running, friends. (And let me know if you’ll be at this race–I would love to meet y’all in person!)
