back to our regular scheduled [contest] program…

… where I run barefoot and talk nonsense and give stuff away!

I ran last night and had a great run. 11 club runners will do that for the mojo! I ran 7k and I have no idea how long it took. It was just a great run. I came home right after running and heated up my dinner that DW had saved for me. I popped the Corelle dish into the microwave and presto I had my BBQ chicken and teriyaki noodles ready to eat. 

Speaking of Corelle, have you ever shopped online at CSN stores? Me neither! CSN Stores are a huge collection of online shops where you can purchase just about anything! I personally am a huge fan of the kitchen and house wares found at www.cookware.com. It is an online store with an amazing assortment of gadgetry and kitchenware from your basic needs right up to the highest quality dish sets and cookware.

Yesterday I was contacted by the amazing people over at CSN Stores.com  telling me I have been selected as one of the kids that are cool enough to give stuff away for them! I have in my grubby mitts a $55.00 gift certificate for one of my followers! Check out the cool teapots from Corelle. for some reason I just like the style. Sort of reminds me of my Gramma a little bit.

Now you ask, how are you eligible to win this awesome prize of $55.00 to spend at CSN Stores.com? Well, let me tell you.

There are 2 things that are mandatory for entry:

  1. You must be a follower of this blog, either new or already, but a comment has to be placed in the comment box below either way.
  2. You must reside in Canada or USA. That’s right Canada, you get to play! *Woot* I even asked CSN - If a Canadian won the prize, that the international fee be covered on your order of $55.00 or less inc. shipping. They said Yes! The international fee is the brokerage and duties that they take care of for you when shipping across the line. I got curious as I was a little disheartened by that fee. I shouldn’t have feared anything as when I went around and did some price checking CSN is right in line with Canadian Based retailers on their pricing, even with the fee. I guess everyone has to pay that fee no matter where you sell the stuff from!! Great Job CSN… Thanks for the fun giveaway!

    1. TA-DA: Mojo is back! You were the obvious choice to lead this great giveaway.

      I don't know if you noticed those bears are frighteningly fast and they're ... barefoot! Or is that bearfoot?

      Did you every hear the joke, that two guys are camping and one night they hear a bear scamping around the tent. Then one guy starts putting on his shoes and tying them up. The other guy goes, "Come on man, you know you can't outrun a bear!" And the guy with the shoes goes, "Buddy ... I just have to out run YOU!"

    2. Bearfoot... good one. I should have come up with that one. Careful about the bear and the shoes joke. I am going on a 13k trail run in the mountains on Sunday and I am the slow runner... yikes.

    3. I like how today is Aug 25, so we have almost a FULL YEAR to browse and think about what to get. I love entering contests, but I hate shopping.

      I would get me something. It doesn't really matter, since if I needed it I would have it already. Something fun.

      I would NOT get my wife a blender, or the moral equivalent of a blender. I would give her the gift cert and let HER shop, that would make her happiest.

      What would I buy you? Hmmm. A foot massager thingie might go over well.

    4. I would get you these for your trail run:

      For me, I'd pay the extra for this:

      because there's nothing sexier than a mermaid playing the trumpet.

    17. So your favorite running pal says:

      I would buy new muffin/cupcake tins for myself, so I could make some for you (I can make healthy muffins or incredibly non-healthy crave-like cupcakes), and for my favorite person my husband. Did I do it right? See you on the trails.
