About Me

Hi, I'm Whitney! I am a middle of the pack runner who discovered the fun of triathlons in 2009. Join me in my adventures in life and training. I run with the Rush Running team and enjoy the fun that comes with such a supportive group of friends who understand what running means to me. I'm newly discovering road biking and the fun that it entails.

This week's Monday Brain Exchange topic is a fun one and applies to all types of bloggers! Jill at Finishing is Winning hosts a new blog topic each Monday.  Visit her site to join in!

Question: What are your thoughts on give-a-ways? Do you enter them often? What entices you to enter or turns you off from entering? Have you run your own give-a-ways?

I love a good giveaway! For many of the blog giveaways that I have entered, I have discovered some new brands and products which has been great.  I generally enter those that have a prize that interests me.  I also like giveaways that aren't too difficult to enter.  If there are lots of steps to do, I usually lose interest.  Another type of giveaway that I like is one where I can gain entry by making a donation to a charity.  Fat Cyclist has hosted some great giveaways for really awesome bikes where entry is given when you donate to Livestrong. 

I have run two giveaways so far on my blog.  I would like to do more in the future...so stay tuned!

  1. I think the overwhelming response is that if they are too complicated, people lose interest! Winning is always fun :)
