5 Days of Taper Giveaway – Road Runner Sports

And just like that we’re at Taper Hump Day! Thank god. The Taperworm is eating me alive.

The winner of yesterday’s Pro Compression socks & sleeves giveaway is (ps I’ll be sending a formal req for all your awesome color/style suggestions)…

Free leg hugs for you, Amanda Mae! I’ll be emailing you. Don’t spam me.

Road Runner Sports used to be the convenient on-the-way-home running store I’d pop into every time I was low on Gu or needed a fresh pair of sneaks on the fly.

And they still are. The in-person stores and omg-they-have-everything web store get regular swipes from my credit card. With the 10% VIP discount (and 20% specials), fully-stocked shelves, and fast&free shipping, it makes it an easy choice.

* ps – anybody can be a VIP. I’m not actually important at all. It’s only $1.99 for the year right now (normally $24.99) so be responsible and sign up *

But RRS has become more than just a goods-provider – They’re like the neighborhood running community social committee. Fostering the sport, bringing runners together, and serving beer and treats at all their events.

Pleading the 5th on how crucial that last point is when deciding what gets penned into my calendar…

Girls Night Out

Champagne, cupcakes, bra fittings, raffles, new & old girlfriends

Adventure Run

Running treasure hunt with prizes, raffles, and legit good beer at the finish

If there’s an RRS near you I strongly urge you to check out one of their events. Seriously they raffled off like 7 pairs of Asics and a Garmin at the Adventure Run. Not to mention everyone’s so nice and it’s a great way to meet new running/drinking friends.

And if you can’t make an event or are too socially nervous to go without a friend bossily dragging you along (thanks, Sheila) then at least pop into the store to check out the racks, get your gait analyzed by a Shoe Dog tech, or get YOUR rack fitted for a new sports bra.

Yup I went there. Let this VS-worthy photo distract you from my sad 11pm puns.

they’ll “fit” you better than this. I was politely asked to step away from the Moving Comfort shortly after…

Don’t have a store near you? NIGHTMARE. You should move. Just kidding. It’s fine because this giveaway is made for EVERYONE, even the unfortunate souls in RRS-deadzones…

(but really you should consider moving)

For a $50 Roadrunner Sports gift card – usable in-store or online for anything your little heart desires, or to re-gift to a deserving run friend you don’t know what to buy for – answer this question :

  • You get one MAGIC RUNNER GENIE WISH – blister-free for life, never-dead electronics, picturesque race photos (in honor of Ms Painface), mandatory race day packet pick up, WHATEVER YOU WANT. What is it???

I choose an end to in-shower, surprise chafe marks. I can deal with a battle wound if I know it’s there, but that take-your-breath-away (not in a good way) pain of water hitting a hidden raw patch is a torture I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.
