Day 11 of #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas

Thanks so much for stopping by my corner of the InterWebs today. Whether you've been following along on my journey since I started this blog OVER TWELVE YEARS AGO or you stopped by for the first time today - WELCOME!

And no matter how long you've been visiting, you picked an AMAZING time to pop in because we're celebrating my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas {read my post announcing this series HERE if you don't know what I'm talking about}.


Today is Day 11 of my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas! And the prize today is pretty FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC! Although, to be honest, all of the prizes are absolutely AMAZEBALLS! If I could enter my own giveaways I'm pretty sure I would enter each and every one of them in this series (and somehow rig it so I'd win) because they are just that AWESOMESAUCE.

Up for grabs today are: 11 boxes of PROBAR goodies.


For today, DAY ELEVEN, eleven winners will be selected, each winning a box of my favorite PROBAR goodies.

To say the hubby and I are #FueledByPROBAR would be an understatement. I'll have a BASE bar for breakfast before workouts, the hubby takes a MEAL bar with him to work for lunch every day, we both snack on FUEL bars when we're out and about, and I fuel my long runs with BOLT chews. Once you find something that works, stick with it, right?!


Now they offer Nut Butters! I've tried them all and they're DELISH with a capital D! (It's perfect on a banana for a snack!)

We love PROBAR for oh so many reasons. Just a few of them are because they create delicious, convenient and healthy food products. Their ingredients are plant-based, coming from sustainable sources which have a small impact on the earth and a significant and positive impact on our bodies. PROBAR doesn't compromise when it comes to quality, and their Non-GMO Project Verified products are proof that packaged food can maintain quality, sustainability, purity and taste. Not only that, PROBAR uses certified organic ingredients in their products. So much goodness in those little packages!


Because PROBAR ROCKS MY SOCKS (and because I was able to sweet talk my contact into hooking you up), eleven winners will grab a case of one of my favorite products - which I have narrowed down (although that was incredibly hard, truth be told) to BOLT Chews, BASE Bars or Nut Butters! There is a plethora of flavors in each of those three categories (although my favorite BOLT Chews are the Pink Lemonade or Strawberry, my favorite BASE Bars are the Frosted Peanut Butter or Frosted Coconut, and my favorite Nut Butter is the Superfood Almond Butter) so there's something for everyone!

Entering this giveaway (along with the other #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas giveaways) is easy-peasy! Simply use the Rafflecopter widget listed below on the giveaway blog post and cross your fingers. Some entries are available daily so I'd HIGHLY recommend entering early and often. (Shoot, I would even go as far as suggesting you set an alarm to remind you to come back to this page every 24 hours so you can take advantage of as many entries as possible!)

a Rafflecopter giveaway Now, the nitty gritty details... All entries are verified, so please make sure to do whatever the required action for the entry is or it will be disqualified. I would hate for you to miss out on winning due to a technicality, so if you are going to click the option, make sure you do whatever it asks or a new, random winner will be selected in your place.

Also, this giveaway will last seven days, with the random winners being picked (and notified) on the eighth day. The winners will have 24 hours to reply to the congratulations email from me to claim their prize. That means, for this giveaway, it will end on December 17th at 11:59pm PST and the ELEVEN winners will be chosen on December 18th.


And, finally, the winners must have a US mailing address. International shipping seems to cost an arm and a leg these days, and customs is a major headache, so to make it easier (and cheaper) on the brands who have offered up their products, the winners must live in United States of America (or at least have an address we can ship to within the US).

With that said, BEST OF LUCK TO EVERYONE WHO ENTERS! And don't forget to stop back tomorrow to see what is up next in my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas (I promise you do NOT want to miss out on any of these giveaways!)!

Day 10 of #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas

Thanks so much for stopping by my corner of the InterWebs today. Whether you've been following along on my journey since I started this blog OVER TWELVE YEARS AGO or you stopped by for the first time today - WELCOME!

And no matter how long you've been visiting, you picked an AMAZING time to pop in because we're celebrating my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas {read my post announcing this series HERE if you don't know what I'm talking about}.


Today is Day 10 of my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas! And the prize today is pretty FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC! Although, to be honest, all of the prizes are absolutely AMAZEBALLS! If I could enter my own giveaways I'm pretty sure I would enter each and every one of them in this series (and somehow rig it so I'd win) because they are just that AWESOMESAUCE.

Up for grabs today are: 10 inspirational MudLOVE bands.


For today, DAY TEN, ten winners will be selected, each winning an inspirational MudLOVE band of their choice.

If you know me, hopefully you know that giving to others, being a light, and helping those around me makes my heart SMILE! Also, I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I love #ArmCandy. Give me a bracelet and I'll wear it till it falls off, but give me a bracelet that helps others and not only will I rock it, I'll spread the word to everyone I can! And that's MudLOVE!


MudLOVE was started as a way to support clean water projects in Africa. They partner with Water for Good and every product purchased provides one week of clean water to someone in need in the Central African Republic, one of the world’s most neglected countries. Along with providing clean water to a country in desperate need of hope, love and basic necessities, their products are an every day instrument of encouragement and inspiration. Can you say WIN-WIN?!

I LOVE to rock my MudLOVE bands as often as possible!

Along with the bands that I wear on a regular basis, they also have started making other amazing pottery - including mugs, tumblers, vases and planters. They also have fundraising mugs, customizable mugs and tumblers (picture them as having the "charm" from the bracelets on them with whatever you'd like imprinted on it), and inspirational mugs. When they first released the new pottery line the hubby and I both snagged a custom mug. We got to select the saying and glaze color for our hand-tossed mugs. I decided on "mcdot <3" in light shino and the hubby went with "Mug Life" in steel gray. I absolutely love how they turned out! I am not a big coffee drinker (although the hubby is), but with the cooler temps I love filling it with hot cocoa or soup (and totally use it for ice cream in the warmer weather #RealTalk)!


Not only are their products AMAZING, but they give a portion of the proceeds to help build wells in Central African Republic. How fan-freakin’-tastic is that?! And not only do they give back to those in need of clean water in Africa, but they're also giving to YOU because they wanted to team up for my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas! #SCORE


Yup, that’s right, the MARVELOUS MudLOVE folks are offering up TEN of their classic bands to YOU! There will be 10 winners - each able to select the inspirational word and color of elastic on their own MudLOVE inspirational band.

Workout Recap - Week 49

Sunday, December 2nd – Riverside Reindeer Run Half Marathon {recap coming soon}, Stretched & Foam Rolled


Monday, December 3rd – 4 mile run, Stretched & Foam Rolled


Tuesday, December 4th – 12 mile run, Stretched & Foam Rolled


Wednesday, December 5th – 8 mile run, Stretched & Foam Rolled



Thursday, December 6th – 75 minutes on the stationary bike, Stretched & Foam Rolled


Friday, December 7th  Rest Day, Stretched & Foam Rolled


Saturday, December 8th – 50K run, Stretched & Foam Rolled


I almost hit 70 miles this week - WHOO HOO! Besides when the hubby and I ran the Grand Canyon earlier this year, my 31-Miler on Saturday was my longest run to date. And I'm pretty stoked with how it went! I walked while taking my fuel at Miles 5, 10, 15, 20, 24 and 28, and stopped for a bathroom break during Mile 8, but I finished in under 5 hours. It wasn't a trail run, but I got time on my feet and I think I'll be ready for my 50-Miler (can't believe it's just over a month away).

How were your workouts this past week?

Day 9 of #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas

Thanks so much for stopping by my corner of the InterWebs today. Whether you've been following along on my journey since I started this blog OVER TWELVE YEARS AGO or you stopped by for the first time today - WELCOME!

And no matter how long you've been visiting, you picked an AMAZING time to pop in because we're celebrating my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas {read my post announcing this series HERE if you don't know what I'm talking about}.


Today is Day 9 of my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas! And the prize today is pretty FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC! Although, to be honest, all of the prizes are absolutely AMAZEBALLS! If I could enter my own giveaways I'm pretty sure I would enter each and every one of them in this series (and somehow rig it so I'd win) because they are just that AWESOMESAUCE.

Up for grabs today are: 9 pairs of Knockaround sunnies.


For today, DAY NINE, nine winners will each win a pair of sunglasses of their choice (as long as they are in-stock, non-custom and don't exceed a price of $25 {it may seem restrictive, but there are TONS that fit those stipulations}).

If you know me, you know I love my sunnies. And let's just say, THE BRIGHTER, THE BETTER! #BangarangRufio

Just a few of the sunnies in my rotation!

Confession: In the past, the majority of my sunglasses were freebies (I literally think I only bought one pair in my collection and they were like $15 from Target). Seeing as they're cheap, I didn't worry about losing, scratching or breaking them. They're sort of like chapstick... They're a necessity, but I'm shocked if I can see 'em through till the end. With that said, when I found out about the kick-butt brand (and local - YAY for San Diego companies), Knockaround, I was SOLD!

My first delivery from Knockaround contained some definite winners, wouldn't you say?!

Living in SoCal, we wear sunglasses the majority of the year (in case you didn't know, we occasionally have to deal with some sub-par weather - mostly "May Gray" and "June Gloom" - but 90% of the year it's in the 60/70s and sunshiny). As opposed to the HIGH sunshine tax we're forced to pay, I see wearing sunnies as a small price to pay for paradise.

Source

The hubby and I love rocking our Knockarounds! We both give the sunnies (and the people who work there) two thumbs up. I'd say on any given day, there's a 95% chance we're both rocking Knockarounds. They've been used while hiking Half Dome, working out in the rain, walking with the pup, running to Yosemite Falls, lounging at the pool, racing and just living life. The hubby even was lucky enough to order a pair of their prescription glasses before they discontinued that option!


May Gray brought some drizzle during one of our runs. Wearing sunnies helped so I wasn't getting pelted in the eyes by the drops!

If you follow me on Instagram {@CarleeMcDot}, then you've probably seen these pics, but they're too good not to share! #KnockFan

I think my favorite model are the Classics (I like the thicker arms, they seem to stay in place a little better while running) and the hubby loves the Polarized feature. The colors are AMAZEBALLS and the fact that you can customize your sunnies (you can get as cray-cray as you'd like) is FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC! The possibilities are literally ENDLESS!

Source

PS I love how the founder came up with the name... It totally sounds like my dad (and I can smell the fresh cut grass)!

And because Knockaround wants you to get the perfect pair, the nine winners will each be able to select the sunnies of their choosing (as long as they are in-stock, non-custom and don't exceed a cost of $25). So get your wishlist started!

Day 8 of #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas

Thanks so much for stopping by my corner of the InterWebs today. Whether you've been following along on my journey since I started this blog OVER TWELVE YEARS AGO or you stopped by for the first time today - WELCOME!

And no matter how long you've been visiting, you picked an AMAZING time to pop in because we're celebrating my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas {read my post announcing this series HERE if you don't know what I'm talking about}.


Today is Day 8 of my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas! And the prize today is pretty FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC! Although, to be honest, all of the prizes are absolutely AMAZEBALLS! If I could enter my own giveaways I'm pretty sure I would enter each and every one of them in this series (and somehow rig it so I'd win) because they are just that AWESOMESAUCE.

Up for grabs today are: 8 surprise Sparkly Soul headbands.


For today, DAY EIGHT, eight winners will be selected, each winning a surprise Sparkly Soul headband.

For almost as long as I've been running I've been rocking Sparkly Soul headbands (and I've even been lucky enough to have been a part of their amazing ambassador program in the past). I love the extra hit of sparkle they bring to my outfit, but not only that, they don't have a piece of black elastic in the back, they don't give me headaches and they don't slip or fall off during activity (and I wear them for everything from running to swimming and all activities in between).


Sparkly Soul was created for all the women who find their strength and soul while pushing themselves to their athletic limits. The company was actually started by a marathoner and triathlete (so they know exactly what an athlete like you and me need when it comes to activewear). Sparkly Soul was created as the comfortable solution for all of us athletic fashionistas so there will be no fussing with our hair while we are working out (or out on the town).
I wear Sparkly Soul headbands any time I have my hair pulled up (whether I'm working out or not). They help keep my fly-aways under control and the colors match any outfit I can conjure up. Sparkly Soul offers sparkly headbands, satin headbands, thin headbands, thick headbands, headbands that support charities, etc. (In case you were curious about my preference, I love the thick sparkly ones, but also have fun stacking different colored thin ones to mix it up too.)

At one point in my collection I had over 50 of the Sparkly Soul headbands in my drawer!

Since having cut my hair for my final act of kindness in my #Carlees34 campaign, I haven't had enough hair to fit into a ponytail, but once I get some length you better believe the headbands will make a reappearance in my every day attire!

Day 7 of #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas

Thanks so much for stopping by my corner of the InterWebs today. Whether you've been following along on my journey since I started this blog OVER TWELVE YEARS AGO or you stopped by for the first time today - WELCOME!

And no matter how long you've been visiting, you picked an AMAZING time to pop in because we're celebrating my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas {read my post announcing this series HERE if you don't know what I'm talking about}.


Today is Day 1 of my #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas! And the prize today is pretty FAN-FREAKIN'-TASTIC! Although, to be honest, all of the prizes are absolutely AMAZEBALLS! If I could enter my own giveaways I'm pretty sure I would enter each and every one of them in this series (and somehow rig it so I'd win) because they are just that AWESOMESAUCE.

Up for grabs today are: 7 Momentum Jewelry 
Motivate Wraps.


For today, DAY SEVEN, seven winners will be selected, each winning a motivate wrap of their choice from Momentum.

If you've been around these parts for a while, you know I love me some #WristCandy! And Momentum Jewelry is one of my favorite companies when it comes to adding to my #ArmParty. Why, you may ask? Well, for quite a few reasons. First, because who couldn't use their own personal cheerleader on their wrist when the run or workout gets tough?! Next, because the wraps are so comfy that I don't even realize they're there (till I look down for that little boost of support or kick in the pants that I need). Also, because everything is made in the USA and hand-crafted with love!


Over the last few years I have acquired quite the collection of Momentum Jewelry goodies, including the Motivate WrapsFootnotesNecklacesSPARKletsWish Wraps, Key Chains and even a t-shirt! Even though it is hard to pick a favorite, I think the Motivate Wraps will always hold a special place in my heart (especially when Amy kicked off the #ShareTheSPARK campaign - "Be the spark that inspires someone... the spark that lights their fire. Be the reason.").


But really, how can you not LOVE a company that wants to encourage everyone to go the extra mile and be the best version of themselves?! I love being a cheerleader for others, but obviously I can't be there pumping you up 100% of the time... but your Momentum Jewelry can always be there! Although you won't be able to win a custom wrap this time around, there are over 60 sayings available on the oval or rectangle charms (not to mention the 26 wrap material colors).

Day 6 of #12DaysOfCarleesChristmas

Thanks so much for stopping by my corner of the InterWebs today. Whether you've been following along on my journey since I started this blog OVER TWELVE YEARS AGO or you stopped by for the first time today - WELCOME!

Up for grabs today are: 6 pairs of 

PRO Compression Socks or Sleeves.



For today, DAY SIX, six random winners will each receive a pair of PRO Compression socks or sleeves of their choice.

I have been lucky enough to be on the PRO Compression Ambassador team for the last five years (and have been rocking the gear even longer). If you know me then you know I wouldn't rep a brand I didn't whole-heartedly believe in. And PRO is one of the first companies I knew I 'needed' to team up with! Not only are they local (they're down the street in Carlsbad - literally, Ryan used to walk from his old office to pick up my orders), but they design and manufacture their products in the USA, their stuff has the perfect amount of graduated compression, the colors are bangarang (and go with every and any running outfit you can think up), and who's legs couldn't use an extra hug every now and then?!

Some of the pictures on my phone of me rocking some PRO socks

PRO's compression gear has helped me tremendously throughout my running "career". I wear the Marathon Socks during long runs, after hard workouts, when flying, etc. If it's too hot or I'm doing a shorter, lower intensity workout, I rock the Low Trainers. Even if you don't run, but are on your feet all day or are traveling for long periods of time, they're amazing!

At one point,  my collection included over SIXTY pairs and I had a drawer dedicated specifically for all my PRO gear!

Bottom: Low Trainers and PC Runners included
