Lock Laces Winners and an Announcement

Hey, all! I am really stinking at this blogging thing since summer has kicked into gear! The kiddos and I have passes to our local waterpark and have spent some time there as well as family get-togethers and I have had my nose stuck in a book some, too. =)

I drew the winners for the Lock Laces giveaway yesterday and want to say a big congratulations to Alicia Orozco and Carrie Hughes! Both winners have been contacted and responded! You ladies will be in #winnevertie spirit very soon! I will get them in the mail tomorrow or Wednesday!

Another announcement I have is that I am doing a Virtual Race Series to benefit the Laced Up Foundation which is a new foundation The Husband and I have started.  Laced Up will be providing new shoes to children in need in our local area and we are organizing many events to raise money.  We are doing a local 5k Labor day weekend in our town and I have organized this virtual race series.  

The series is a "Wizard" themed race and the first in the series, the Scarlett & Gold, is open to sign ups and is set to be run from September 1-30.  If you have not heard of a virtual race, it is where you choose your place and time and run (or walk, or get the point =) ) for a really awesome medal which will be mailed in the month of September.  The reason I chose this theme is #1 my supreme geekhood and #2 since this is a children's race it is a theme that many children can get behind!  It is a great intro to running for kids and is set as a 5k/10k/or Half Marathon- runner's choice! This is the first race in the challenge with 3 other houses following.  There is a final "House Cup"medal for those who complete all 4 races in the series.
First Medal in the series

 I am hoping that this race has a great turnout and we can buy lots and lots of shoes for local kids!  I chose September for this race so we can get the first shoes to children by the time it starts to get cold this winter.  If any of you would be interested in signing up for one or all of the races follow this link: 

Happy Running!

Lock Laces Review and Giveaway!

Hey, all! It is that time again! I have another great giveaway for my awesome and amazing readers.  I have had this in the works for awhile but for some reason I have just felt SWAMPED and not able to get my thoughts together to do this.  But, here it is!

I have heard the wonders of Lock Laces for quite some time.  Never tie, great fit every time, quick and easy to get out the door but I had yet to get any.  Then I won a pair from a giveaway on another blog.  Those were quickly snatched by my then 4 year old son for his play tennis shoes.  He loves to be able to come and go when he feels like it between the house and wherever my husband happens to be working outside without having to come find me to help him with his shoes.  Putting the Lock Laces on there has saved many unfinished chores in the house ;-).  I would show you a picture of his play shoes with the lock laces on them but if any of you know little boys they are about as clean as a pig in a wallow so.... Here's a stock photo =)
So, then I buy a pair and the Husband gets them! He promptly puts them on his running shoes and hasn't looked back.  They were so easy to put on and literally took just a couple of minutes before we took off for a run. (Directions taken from Lock Laces packaging.)

1. Lace the shoe up like you normally would.  You get the best fit in the end with your foot in the shoe.

2. Squeeze the lock and thread each lace through it.

3.Cut your laces 2-3 inches below the lock. ( You are welcome to use something other than children's safety scissors, of course. =) )

4. Insert laces into clip and press to close.

Since everyone else seems to love them I really need to get on ordering myself some.  Maybe this time I will get to keep them!  But, I have 2 pairs to give away to 2 lucky winners.  

All you have to do is enter through the Rafflecopter below.  For this giveaway I am partnering with Aph over at Aphalicious Bliss who is a fellow Sweat Pink and Girls Gone Sporty Ambassador and highlighting this giveaway on her blog as well for her big birthday extravaganza! Giveaway will run from July 2-July 8! Good Luck!!
