Day 8 of a Fit Christmas

Mid-week slackers?  No way. Not here! You all were working hard on Wednesday.  It inspires me how much some of you workout.  The random winner of H20 Audio Trax Custom Fit Sport Headphones is...  CHRISTA H., who took a 30 minute Step class yesterday.  Christa, please email me at runwithjess@comcast.net to claim your prize.

I love to run.  In fact, sometimes when I'm crossing over the big bridge, I stop at the top and yell it for the all of Peoria to hear. (Mind you, no one hears me but passing drivers probably do a rubberneck...)  Even when I'm not on the run, I enjoy reminders in my daily life on just how wonderful running has been to my life.

One touch to a necklace says, "Yeah, I kicked butt in that last 13.1"

One look at a keychain says, "I'd rather be running..."

An ornament on my Christmas tree that says, "I'm a different woman this year."

Even a clock reminds me, "Get the rest of your crap done so you have time to run!"

These runner gifts are all available at Tribute Sport.
What a unique collection!  


I recently had the opportunity to review one of the runner girl necklaces from Tribute Sport. I'm a work-from-home mom, so honestly I don't dress up very much.  When I'm not in fitness gear, it's a tank and jeans for me.  So this necklace is the perfect style to sport my love for the run.  It's playful, yet casual enough to wear on a daily basis with simply anything.


No matter what your latest achievement, there's a charm for you!  I, of course, went with the 26.2 charm.  I still can't believe I did it this year! (And silently happy that none of the Biggest Loser contestants beat my time on Tuesday's show!)


Today by participating in the 12 Days of a Fit Christmas, you can score one of these necklaces for yourself.  (Yes fellas, you can win too!  It'd make a great gift under the tree for that special lady!)  All you have to do is GET BUSY, GET MOVING & STAY FIT this holiday season!

As an extra bonus, Tribute Sport is giving away
TWO of these darling necklaces!!


And just in case you don't win (or you think that ornament would look great on your tree...), Tribute Sport has a great discount for my readers in their Gifts for Athletes Shop...




HERE'S HOW TO WIN TODAY'S PRIZE

First you gotta work out!!  That's #1 priority here folks.  Get your sweat on and then come back and tell me about it!!  Make stuff up and Karma will come knocking at your door...
