Give and Get: Push Up Book Winner & Bondi Band Giveaway

by Christina @ The Athletarian on August 31, 2011

So if you are already a follower, you will have noticed that my blog has a different appearance.  I am extremely excited and proud of it.  I am not the most tech savvy person in the world but with the help of a few Twitter friends and the lovely people at Bluehost, I was able to get my self-hosted site up and running within a few days.  I’m not going to lie, it was a lot harder to do that I had anticipated.  I still have a lot of editing to do on posts and pages…I think it was worth it though!

Today’s post is nothing but awesome.  I will announce the winner of my previous giveaway and will also be giving you readers out there the chance to get something too!  Soooo….first thing’s first.  The winner of Steve Speirs’s 7 Weeks to 100 Push Ups is Janae from The Hungry Runner Girl!  Congrats Janae!  E-mail me your information so I can pass it along to Steve and you can start this challenge!

If you have been living under a rock and haven’t visited Janae’s blog yet, go do it right now.  She has the most entertaining blog in the entire blogosphere and I anticipate new posts more than I anticipate dessert at the end of a meal.  That says a lot.

Rebecca over at Bondi Band has sent me two bands – one for review and one to give away to a luck reader!  I originally saw these bands featured on other blogs and immediately became attracted to them.  They come in a variety of colours and patterns and some have slogans and images that pertain to different sports and hobbies.  The two I received say “Run like an animal” on them – LOVE IT.  There is really a band to match every personality!  Bondi Band also offers wicking hats, neck gators, wicking towels, and “buddies” (for dogs!).  I was so excited to receive the band just in time for my first “real” speed training session.  It was a little windy and I knew the hair horns would get out of control if there was nothing holding them down.  Enter Bondi Band.

Speed training was a success and my brand new Bondi Band worked like a charm.  It didn’t slip out of place at all and it wicked away all of my sweat so my eyeballs were completely burn-free.  The material is extremely soft and stretchy so it will conform to the size and shape of anyone’s head.  Believe me, this is an issue for me.  My head is a lot bigger than you think.  It was a fabulous first attempt at speed training.  I was even able to get in a jumping shot afterwards to submit to Fast Cory who is having a contest!  Send him any jumping photos you have because he is going to be featuring them on his blog SOON!

A Bondi Band (just like mine!) could be all yours!

Here is what you need to do:

**Please leave a separate comment for each of the following so that each entry gets counted!**

Mandatory:

FOLLOW my blog!  I put the Google Friend Connect right at the top of my left sidebar so click away!

Optional:

Contest ends this Friday, September 2nd!  Good luck!
