Michigan Race Entry Giveaway!!!

13 miles on the schedule today.  Had a great run on Paint Creek Trail with my running buddy, T, and one of his co-workers.  I love the trail but it was a hot one even though we started at 7:30am.  70 degrees to start!  Yikes.  We should have started at 7am!


Who wants to race?
Renewal By Andersen of Detroit Headquarters
So I have some great news.  I was talking with Brandon over at Renewal by Andersen of Detroit about races.  If you did not know it, they have been really supporting the community in Metro Detroit and especially the running community this racing season.  They have been involved in tons of races which is really exciting.  If you recall, I got to race with them for the Ann Arbor Half Marathon.  Here I am at the finish courtesy of Brandon who took my picture:

(1:52:52) 10th in my AG I might add
And here's a few of the team members that were also sponsored by Renewal by Anderson of Detroit that day.

So Brandon contacted me to do a giveaway.  The giveaway is for a free tech shirt(that you will wear for the race) and a free entry to a race they are sponsoring.  Here's a close up of the awesome shirt you get to wear if you win.  People at the race I did really loved the shirt.
The shirt you will be wearing at the race!
Here's a list of races they are currently sponsoring and you get your choice!  They have a great selection of races to pick from!

Brooksie Way Half Marathon - Rochester - September 30th

I'll be running the Brooksie Way thanks to Renewal by Andersen of Detroit.  It's an incredible half marathon.  Renewal by Andersen of Detroit ran a contest where you post a picture on their Facebook page and the top three pictures with the most "likes" received a free race entry.  What a great idea and a fun contest as well and I'm happy to run with them again!

So who wants to win?  Ok, here's the rules:

So, get out there, tell your friends, post it on your blog, post about it on Facebook, Tweet about it.  Share the contest and let's get our Michigan runners out there thanks to Renewal by Andersen of Detroit.

Contest will end Sunday, July 29 at 8pm.  This gives you two weeks to spread the word!  A winner will be chosen at random from the entries that qualify.

* Note:  I received no compensation for this blog post, nor any free race except for the race that one of my readers will win.  I'm doing this contest because Renewal by Andersen of Detroit has been very supportive in the running community in Metro Detroit.

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
