The winter doldrums can leave our running flat, so we thought it’s time to bring back week's FREE Stuff Giveaway.
This week's FREE Stuff Giveaway giveaway is Far Gone Greetings, humorous greeting cards chock full of runnerspeak that leaves runners laughing while admitting the words about our obsession are true. The cards capture our running addiction and help share our passion with other runners who get it like we do.
Created by Victoria Primicias, who is a marathon veteran and a graphic designer by trade. She runs in the deep, miserable wind chill temps of the Midwest, so yes, she's definitely far gone herself. Victoria realizes that once runners acknowledge they’re a far-gone athlete, the appeal is in the shared experience that’s captured in the phrase, “It takes one to know one.” Running is fun, has a lot inside jokes, and these cards capture the humor we all share.

This Week's Giveaway Question
What is the your most effective excuse for not running and how do you pull it off?
That’s right, what’s your running version of “My dog ate my homework”? January weather and post holiday blahs make January a tough month to stay motivated and February can be just as challenging. What are some of the excuses you tell yourself to skip your runs and how do you dodge them? It can be a seasonal excuse - such as snow and cold or an excuse that pops up anytime during the year.
Go to the Lounge Forum and admit your excuse. Your response can be as short as a sentence and as long as a blog post or story. Leave your response today to become eligible!
