In addition to training for Ironman Louisville, I am also training for the Marine Corps Marathon as a member of Team in Training. As a TNT mentor and member I have committed to raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. [Read More about Why I Run for Charity].
One of my favorite ways to raise money is through auctions and raffles, because it allows people to contribute to a great cause while also getting something fun for themselves or someone they care about.
I have reached out to some of my favorite companies and I am super excited about the items that have been donated so far! The auction will start on August 20 and this year I am taking my auction to a new level and doing it online!
You might be thinking, August 20? Why are you announcing it now?
Well, between now and then I will be reviewing various auction items and as an extra bonus, I’ll have various giveaways too!
To kick it all off, I’m starting with a giveaway from the amazing Momentum Jewelry!
Right before my first half Ironman I was the winner of a Foot Note from Momentum, a inspirational pendant that slides right onto your shoelaces. I spent a lot of time selecting my message (they have so many great options), finally settling with Make it Happen, because that was exactly what I needed to see in T2, after 1.2 miles of swimming and 56 miles of biking, knowing I still had 13.1 miles left to run.
I have since also acquired a Stay Strong Foot Note and a Dig Deep Motivate Wrap. I haven’t used them yet, because I am saving them for Ironman Louisville, which is less than 7 weeks away. Swimming 2.4 miles, biking 112 miles and running 26.2 miles…I am going to need all the motivation I can get!
I am a big fan of motivational quotes and mantras and a firm believer that they work. I have seen them printed on shirts, written on duck tape on people’s bikes and written in sharpie on people’s arms.
Momentum Jewelry gives us a way to carry our mantras with us in a fashionable, handcrafted, workout friendly, sweat proof way!
I cannot say enough about their products and am very excited that one of you will be able to get your very own inspirational Foot Note or Motivate Wrap! Check out all their great options and enter to win below!
Note that while the giveaway is only open to US Residents, the auction will be open to the US, Canada, Caribbean and Europe, so if you are outside of the US, you still have a chance to bid on a Foot Note in August!
