My New Piece of Running Flair and A Shameless Plug

If you've been on my blog anytime within the last day or so, you might have noticed my little bling over there in the right side menu right under subscribe to my blog (which I might add is an option for those of you who just don't want to miss a minute of my ingenious life philosophy on running) I've got a new button over there for Tribal Running of which I am now a member.

So what's this Tribal Running? Glad you asked. Tribal Running is according to their words "a community of runners built by runners." Now in my own, it's a pretty sweet new running website on the grow where you can do a little more chatting on all things running, see what races are coming up, track your own workouts, buy some new running swag, meet some running friends who share in your insanity and why yes, of course, read more hilarious running blogs.

Now here's the plug. Go join Tribal Running. Click my little button over there on the right. Why? I want to win a freaking gift card. Why do I want to do this? I have no idea. Perhaps just because it's there to win so my competitive spirit can't help but surface. Or maybe it's because a new pair of running shoes is sorely overdue and I can hardly stomach spending $100 or more on something that I'm only going to be able to keep on my feet for a few short months before I'll have to buy another pair. Or maybe it's because I just want the bragging rights. But mostly I think, it's just a cool site and I'm in favor of promoting all things positive for running. After all, it's a pretty important part of my life.

So here's what you need to do. Hop on over there. Check it out. Sign up for an account and when they ask who referred you put me, Kelly Collins, blogger extraordinare (ok don't really write that, just my name will do). I'll be sure to give you a shout out of some sort on my blog if you do, although I'm not really sure if I will actually know that you've signed up unless you tell me. Oh and my feet will thank-you too ;-) I'll even post you a picture of my new running shoes and perhaps even a picture of my smiling feet should I win (if you would like to see feet smile you will have to help me win).

PS. The Kids Mini Martian Marathon is tomorrow for Chloe! We just squeaked in our last 2 miles today. So she's done her 25. Tomorrow is the big finish. I'll be sure to post pictures!

Tribal running was how I was able to know a blogger extraordinare such as you and I now get to look forward to gems of wisdom, humor and inspiration on running.

Good luck on the running shoes. I can't wait to see a picture of smiling feet when you win the contest.

That's right, I almost forgot, a fellow tribe member. Do we have a secret handshake?

Hey in all seriousness, you should look me upon on TR and request me as a friend. I need all I can get :-)
