Breast Cancer Awareness and a Reebok Shoe Giveaway!

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a good weekend.  It was another great racing weekend, with lots of great reports from the Marine Corp Marathon in DC and others.  I also got to spectate at the Houston Half yesterday, and saw my friends Holly and May nail shiny new prs, as well as many others from our local training group.  We finally had a cool weekend, it was fantastic racing weather.

October is nearing to a close, and although October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, it’s not too late to help the cause.  You’ve probably noticed pink in all sorts of places, to remember women who have battled cancer and to encourage further research and awareness.

One of my best friend’s mother dealt with breast cancer when we were in college, and it was extremely frightening.  Thankfully, she recovered and is a proud survivor.  I’ve had several other acquaintances struggle through it as well.  It’s hard not to be touched by cancer in some way these days.

Did you know that Reebok is a proud sponsor of the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and will donate a minimum of $300k to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade? They have a specific line of products and will donate from the pink ribbon product sales to help support access to care and to help find a cure for Breast Cancer.

With the holidays approaching, this is a great way to give back twice.  If you have any athletes or runners to buy for, check out the pink ribbon collection and some of your money will go toward the Breast Cancer fund.  And it’s not all pink! I love this black zip up top… hint, hint… hubs? Mom? :)


Even better, Reebok has offered to give one of you the chance to win a pair of shoes from the pink ribbon line.


There are a number of cute styles and color options to choose from.

To enter, choose one or all of the following:


  1. Check out the pink ribbon page and leave a comment telling me which color combo of shoes you would choose.
  2. Tell me if you or someone you know you has been affected by breast cancer.

  1. Unfortunately a few members of both my family and husbands family has been affected by breast cancer. My husbands grandmother had breast cancer about 18mos ago. I have two aunts, one in remission, one still waging war against breast cancer.

  2. Is the Houston Half the same course as the race in January? I LOVED that race and want to run it again someday when I am healthy. I PR’d there, but would have gone sub 1:30 if it weren’t for my stupid compartment syndrome!

  3. Unfortunately for me, breast cancer runs in both sides of my family. One of my grandmothers passed away from breast cancer, and my other grandma beat breast cancer two years ago. For us, October is an important month with breast cancer awareness!

  4. the ziglite electrifying pink ribbon shoes are super cool. My 16 y.o.son even likes them, of course, he loves black and is very supportive of breast cancer awareness so he loved the pink in them. We have numerous different cancers that have run their course in my mothers side of the family. My cousin has breast cancer and fighting a tough fight. we are so proud to say she is currently winning. I tweeted about your promo and hope that many people continue to support breast cancer awareness even after october.

  5. I once worked with a woman who lost her daughter to breast cancer. One of my best friends mother lost her battle to breast cancer. I also worked at another position with a woman who was going through breast cancer at the same time as she was working with me.
    I have a sister who battled stage 4 Non-Hodgkin’s and is an 11 yr survivor. My father is battling skin cancer.

  6. I think it’s such a great thing when companies (big or small) donate to such a great cause such as Breast Cancer Awareness/Research. I like the RealFlex Transition’s in Pink Ribbon.

  7. I would choose the RealFlex Fusion TR in white/dynamic pink/pure silver.
    I have two beautiful friends affected by breast cancer. Patricia who was like an older sister and Tricia a best friend. Both of thheir cancer matasicized into to brain cancer. One operable the other not. Patricia passed September 16, 2011. Tricia has scanned clean for 6 months.
    I tweeted the giveaway.

  8. Breast cancer not only hit close to home in November 2010, it hit me at age 30 while pregnant. After a tough battle, I came out victorious and am looking forward to remaining cancer-free, regaining my health and getting back on the track.

  9. Unfortunately, I know quite a few women who have battled breast cancer, a few of them very close to me. But they have luckily survived and are doing quite well. I hope that someday we have a cure.

    The shoes are pretty cute – i like the white/pink/silver combo.

  10. I’ve had several friends and family that have had breast cancer. One was a young woman, only 30 years old, who I had trained for her first marathon only the year before. She survived fortunately, but it serves as a reminder that it can happen to anybody! Check your self, get the appropriate screening (I just had my annual mammogram a couple weeks ago).

  12. My cousin’s wife just had her breasts removed. She felt a lump, went to the Dr and about a week or two later she was having surgery.

  13. I had a scare in college and had to have a lumpectomy. Thank God it was benign. However, just two years ago I lost my friend Barb after her amazing fight against breast cancer. She was an amazing woman.

  14. One of my close friends was diagnosed with breast cancer this year. Fortunately, she caught it early and she has a very positive outlook on life. Through her running, she was able to manage the radiation treatment on the road to recovery. I am very proud of her and happy to know that she is cancer free now.

  15. Yes~ my sister-in-law’s mom and one of my mom’s coworkers. Breast Cancer really does affect everyone….. and the best news is both are survivors.

  16. i know of people who have been affected by breast cancer however my family has been affected by other types of cancer. it is such an evil disease.

    thanks for an amazing giveaway.

  17. My grandmother is a two time breast cancer survivor. Thankfully now she is in remission but has to checked more often than the average woman.
