Races to Remember (GIVEAWAY)

One of the things I love about running is being able to talk about running. Rehashing training runs and the RACE day can be so much fun! It can also be fun to save those momentos that will help you remember the day...years from now. The folks at Races 2 Remember sent me this name tag to try out on my special race day! H Love is the same as my Papa's name (Henry Love). I wasn't a big fan of having a name that started with H...seemed a little boyish. But because my Papa rocked the H...I rocked the H.
(random side note...I love a pretty cursive J or L)

I did LOVE my name because I shared the same initial and name with my Papa. All his T-shirts had H Love written on the tag. I even have one of his favorite Georgia Bulldog T-shirts with H Love in it. (He played footbal at UGA back in the day when they won SEC champs. MY FAV!

If you haven't ever heard me talk about my Papa just know he was an amazing man and the inspiration for my blog. His favorite saying was Keep On Keeping On....nuff said!

Having a bib like this and a fun sign for family to hold was great! I think a larger race it would have been a great way to hear people cheering my name..and give me a kick in the pants!

I didn't even notice my name tag while running and it held up great! So you know you want one or maybe you would choose a sign, either way.... here's your chance.

Here is what you need to do.
1. Go HERE and like Races 2 Remember on FB. (mandatory)

2. Become a follower of my blog or let me know if you are already. (mandatory)

3. If you win..what would have your name tag or signs say??

4. Share this giveaway on your blog, facebook, twitter, etc. and let me know.
Winner will be drawn Sunday June 5th!

Here I am running through a neighborhood. It was pretty depressing at around mile 18and not a spectator in sight. I mean come on people there is marathon passing by your front door! I guess I am just spoiled from the Seattle neighborhoods in the Rock N Roll race! They bring it!

Trying to pose...and show my H LOVE sign.
