Free Gifts For Running Dads - Compliments of You!

Each year we salute running moms and dads on their special days each year.   The ultimate runner dad award

This year we need some help! 

We are looking for a few great running bloggers who love running dads as much as we do.   If you believe dads who run deserve an extra pat on the back, a day of recognition, and a gift as a small way to remind them how special they are, then you just might be the help we need.

Book cover We will provide 5 copies of The Ultimate Runner for you to use as giveaways, prizes, gifts or bribery for The Ultimate Running Dads that you honor.

Here is what you need to do for the five copies.  Leave a comment below and....

  • Tell us the creative way that you would involve your running, blogging friends in your salute to running dads.  
  • We love stories and photos about runners so plans which involve sharing or telling the stories of running dads may get noticed.   And if you can find a way to have them posted into the Lounge in the Inspirational Story category...well, that might sweeten your chances.
  • Twist this idea and find a quirky theme or fun way to salute running dads.  Your imagination is your only limit.  We just ask that it does somehow honor, salute, or celebrate the runners in your contest.
  • Contests must start by Tuesday, June 15 and announce winners by Fathers Day on June 20.
 
Act Fast!  We will choose the running bloggers on Monday!

I am a running dad with 3 precious daughters. One thing that is important to me is inculding my kids and encouraging them to stay heathly. Last year my 5 year old ran her first 5k. Sure she did it in almost 40 minutes, but she ran the whole way. I couldn't have been prouder of her. I plan for a contest would be to post pictures of dads running with their kids with the best picture winning.

I am a running dad, and one of the main reasons I run is to set a good example for my three kids. After one run on a warm day last summer, I sat in the shade on my porch to calm down. I wasn't wearing a shirt, and my then-almost-three-year-old boy came and sat on my lap. Later, when he took his shirt off, he pointed to his nipples and said "Dad, I have these too! I can be a runner like you!"

At my running blog, I'm trying to sell bike jerseys there to raise money for Livestrong. If I won the 5 copies of this great book, I would use them as a value-added sale to boost interest in those jerseys, as in "5 lucky buyers will also receive a copy of..." It's a great cause that I'm proud to support.

i am a running dad, and some of my favorite runs have been the times when i am getting ready to go out for a run, and my 8 year old son asks if he can come with me. i don't even care that i am running at a slower pace, or not getting the intended workout for the day. just running with my son alongside me is enough of a reward. i'd love to be able have a contest to pass this book on to other running dads as inspiration to keep running with their kids.
