A Sweat Pink Giveaway!

Hello, hello again friends! It’s my favorite week day…can you guess? Mike Mike Mike Mike! Ha. Ok.

First, I want to remind everyone I do try and respond to almost every comment, so make sure you scroll back down and see if I replied! I’m still having trouble getting my theme to accept threaded messages, so for now this is how it’s gonna be!

Today is a very special day over in the Ingle family…why?

Our 3rd nephew was born this morning!! I’m happy to report that mama and baby are doing great, and we are so excited to go see them and meet this precious little boy! Unfortunately we’re all pretty spread out-so we’ll have to wait until Friday to get our lovin’ in! I. Can’t. Wait. I always tell Adam that babies make me cry, and do they ever. I think I’ve cried after meeting each of our other 4 nieces/nephews! There’s just something about it, it’s so amazing and beautiful and heart-warming and SWEET to hold a baby who’s just hours old! It still blows my mind that women are able to carry and grow inside of them a tiny human being, and then poof here they are! Ah, baby fever nonetheless. Lucky for us, this stud muffin makes FIVE little ones on my husband’s side of the family, so no pressure there! We’re enjoying the practice and freedom to hand them back when we’re done. For now, we’re perfectly okay with THIS thing…

Last night some girlfriends and I got together and had a really happenin’ parTAY. Let me just tell you. Things got wild. Waaay too inappropriate to talk about on this blog. We made somethig only few have been brave enough to concoct. Did you guess it?

Homemade Laundry Detergent! Whoop whoop!

I’ll be posting a full tutorial of the recipe we used on the photog. blog later this week! I’ll let you know when it’s up! The process was super easy, in fact the hardest part was just rounding up the ingredients at Walmart and Kroger. I can’t wait to test it out and share how it worked! Deodorant is next on our list. That process sounded a little more intricate than what we had time for last night, so it will have to wait until the next girls night.

And now, if you follow me on Instagram, which you should totally do if you’re not already…that is IF you’re willing to accept an ungodly amount of Truckee and gps pictures, you’ll see that I have a giveaway to talk about!!

About a month ago I was accepted to join the Fit Approach community as a Sweat Pink Ambassador. If you want to learn more about the family, visit fitapproach.com and do some exploring! They are generous enough to send all of their new ambassadors pink shoelaces, since we all know, you run faster and stronger while wearing pink shoelaces!

I’ll be giving away 3 pairs to start, to 3 readers who I will choose randomly! All you have to do is 1 or all of the following. Each method will earn an additional name in the pot!

1. Leave a comment on this post saying why you want to win a pair of “sweat pink” shoelaces, and what your activity of choice while rocking them will be.

2. Follow (@sarah_ingle1) and tweet something about my giveaway! Then LEAVE AN ADDITIONAL comment here telling me that you tweeted at me. Something like, “I want to win a sexy pair of hot pink shoelaces from Sweet Miles because sweating pink is amazeballs.” Not really, I’ll let you make up your own thing. BE SURE to mention #sweatpink and @fitapproach.

3. Follow me on Instagram (@sarah_ingle1) then LEAVE AN ADDITIONAL comment here telling me that you did.

I’ll announce a winner Sunday night, July 21!

Sound good? Like free schtuff? GO!

Do you have any nieces or nephews? Ever made homemade laundry detergent? Thoughts on the Boston bomber making the cover of the Rolling Stone?

P.S. I’m looking for an entertaining (funny) guest post for this Saturday! I’ll be busy visiting family and kissing babies, and won’t have my laptop with me most of the weekend. I would love to feature one of YOU, and I would greatly appreciate it! So, email me (sweetmilesblog@gmail.com) an idea/draft of a post somewhat related to the following:

-Staying motivated to run even when it’s hot, training for your first marathon, why you even run in the first place, or something funny pertaining to running with your dog! Must contain a tiny dose of humor, and be original 🙂

    I would LOVE to win the “sweat pink” shoelaces, my activity of choice is running. Last week I completed the McCall Trailrunning Classic (a 11.8 trail run.) In August I will be running the Dirty Dash, The Electric Run and The Color Run… all great chances to show off some bright pink shoelaces! 🙂

    Enjoy your time as an auntie! I have five nephews, one step-nephew, one niece, and one niece/nephew on the way. And I love them all to pieces! My husband and I really enjoyed being auntie/uncle to our older nephews before we became parents.

    I’m already rockin’ the pink shoelaces, so good luck to everyone else!

    I’d love a pair of sweat pink laces because I’m dying to buy new shoes even though I don’t need them. I think some pretty pink laces will help tide me over. I’ll be using them on my running shoes!

    I have 2 nieces and 1 more on the way! I can’t wait! I’m the crazy aunt who buys them books and savings bonds. Haha

    Never made at home laundry detergent. I’ll have to give it a try!

    These laces would look sweet on my new, celebratory running shoes that I am gifting myself for finishing C25k!

    I would like a pink pair of awesome shoelaces because…
    1. Pink is my FAVORITE color
    2. I am trying to train for my 2nd half marathon and the heat and lack of a running partner are KILLING me!
    3. I have a love/hate relationship with running
    4. All my running gear is BORING and it needs to be amped up!!!!!
    5. I am a kick butt totally legit person and I would rock them like a superstar!!!!
    **I follow you on Instagram and twitter and I tweeted about the awesome #sweatpink shoelaces!

    So, I would of course wear these sexy pink shoelaces running, which is my sport of choice. However, my backup sport is biking. Because I’m not “all in” yet, I’ve yet to buy bike shoes, which I hear is like being the new kid in school with last year’s trapper keeper. So… running and biking it is!

    Clearly, this giveaway was made for me 😉 I am so obsessed with pink and seriously everything I own is pink BUT I was a good girl when getting fitted for new running shoes and went with the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 13 because I needed the support. They’re blue. Womp womp wooooomp. Pink laces would totally spice it up!!!

    Well of course I would LOVE a pink pair of shoelaces! I would say my number one activity would be running in them, but I would also be in kickboxing with them as well 🙂

    Okay, so the new Rolling Stone magazine enrages me. I seriously have been talking about it for the past two days and can’t get over it. I’ve never bought a RS magazine and now I definitely never will, that is just so offensive.

    On a more pleasant note, welcome to the Sweatpink community! It’s awesome, I find the FB group to be very helpful 🙂

    Wow, homemade laundry detergent, you’ll haveta keep us readers updated on whether you like it or not b/c I’ve seen a lot about it, but not gonna lie, am a bit skeptical about it. On to the shoelaces, I LOVE a pair of pink laces! I usually rock some purple ones(fave color) but pink is just the right color to be rocking in the gym at work! Who can be intimidated by a trainer with pink laces right?
