Do you like fun, new running gear? Oh, who am I kidding…of course you do! What runner doesn’t like fun, new running gear!?
Several posts back, I mentioned how I had participated in @JerryMAllison’s Runner Swag Swap! (To see her original post about it, click here). Here is the skinny…everyone that participates will be given the name and address of their swap partner. Each person then has one month to prepare a box of goodies and send it off to their partner. And that is pretty much it! Simple, yes?
When I saw that she posted this earlier this year, I immediately jumped at the chance to participate. I love surprising other people and I was really excited to get a mystery package in return! You can see what I received from my Running Swag Swap partner, Mark, by clicking here.
After the swap was over, Jerry and I exchanged a couple of e-mails and I agreed to host the next one. Here are the details of how the swap works…
If you are interested, drop me an e-mail. The subject line should automatically fill in with the words, “Runner Swag Swap”.
In the body of the e-mail, include your name and address. Also include information regarding any allergies you may have. This is important if your swap partner is interested in sending you food items, gels, etc. You are also welcome to include other information that you would like your swap partner to have, such as Twitter handle, e-mail address, blog address, etc.
E-mails will be accepted through September 30, 2012. I will then pair you up and send you an e-mail with your swap partner’s information.
You are then charged with creating a package of your favorite running items for your partner! The price cap for each package is $30. And to step up the level of creativity, we are asking that each swap package contain one Halloween-related item!
The Running Swag Swap is really fun and I hope that you want to be included! Not only will you get a fun surprise in the mail, but who knows, you might just end up making a long-distance running buddy!
