My first win was 2 pairs of injinji socks from Lisa at Yo Mamma Runs. That was a couple of months ago. At the beginning of June I won a $200 gift certificate for Rudy Project gear at the Binbrook Triathlon in the post race draw they always have. A week after that, I won a $500 gift certificate from CP24 (local news station) for playing the hashtag game. The hashtag of the day was #whatwasIthinking and this was the picture that landed me that prize. It was my Grade 12 Grad and it was in the 80's. Need I say anything else? Those of you that follow me on Instagram would have seen this on one of my Throwback Thursday posts. Yes, I have no shame and I am totally not above laughing at myself.

Fast forward to the first week of July when I get an email from the editor of Canadian Running informing me that I won a pair of Senneheiser headphones for entering the 3 Favourite Running songs contest they had. Sweet! In case you were wondering, my song choices were: Beautiful Day (U2), Red Barchetta (Rush) and I Bet You Look Good on the Dance Floor (The Arctic Monkeys).
The icing on the cake was winning a pair of these babies from Christina at The Athletarian. I did a little happy dance in my office when I found out.
Yup, those are the new Mizuno Wave Sayonaras. I took them out for a good hard 5km yesterday and they completely blew my mind. Expect a review in the coming weeks. They are going to be my go to shoes for my next few tri's as well as my half marathon in October. I sense that they have some serious goal crushing potential. Bring on the mezamashii.
To say that these past couple few months have been lucky for me would be a bit of an understatement so I'm heading out to go get that lottery ticket.
Do you enter contests often? Have you ever won anything?
