A Good Day for a Giveaway




In ten short days I'll be another year older.  In ten short days I'll (according to my metrics) officially be in my mid-thirties.  In ten short days I'll be 43 according one kid and 34 according to the other kid.  Only one is right and the other will be corrected until they get it right.  While I'm sure being 43 will be awesome, I'm fine being 34 for the next year.  So, in honor of my upcoming 34th birthday, I am giving away a Starbucks gift card for $13.40.  No, it isn't fancy or running related or even my go-to drink.  But a latte sure does taste good after a run so I'm spreading the joy.  

I'm sure you are wondering:  Why $13.40?  Well, I wanted to stick with the number 34 because I'll be 34 years old.  I figured $3.40 wasn't enough (can you even get a drink for $3.40 at Starbucks other than straight coffee or tea?).  And I've said it before and I'll say it again:  I'm cheap so $34 is way out of my price range.  So, I thought about the Starbuck's gift cards I've received and they were usually $10 to $15 so I split the difference making sure the number 34 was in there somewhere.  Hence the $13.40 gift card.

Enough history…you want to know how to win.  It's easy.  
  1. Be a follower (required - leave a comment)
  2. Post this giveaway on your blog or what ever else you do to let others know (you can get one extra entry this way - leave a comment)




This giveaway will end on my birthday - say 12:45 a.m. on March 29.  Sometime on my birthday I'll use the awesome randomizer at random.org to figure out who the winner of the $13.40 gift card is.  

Good Luck!
