Day 1 of 12 Days of Carlee's Christmas

Thanks so much for stopping by CarleeMcDot.com today. Whether you've been following along on my journey since I started this blog TEN 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 AMAZEBALLS! If I could enter my own giveaways I'm pretty sure I would enter each and every one of them in this series because they are just that AWESOMESAUCE.

Up for grabs today is: 1 Holiday Edition RunnerBox.


If you've been around these parts for a while you may remember that I used to be an ambassador for this company. (FYI: The only reason I'm no longer an ambassador was to give other folks an opportunity - absolutely nothing to do with the company, people, product, etc! There is nothing but pure love and total respect between us all!)

If you haven't heard of RunnerBox before, let me give you the deets. RunnerBox is a bi-monthly subscription box filled with products geared towards runners (they also offer a TriBox and CycleBox). The box arrives every other month, shipped right to your front door, filled with products such as energy bars, gels, chews, protein shakes, and accessories.

Source

Not only do they offer monthly subscription options, they also sell one-time gift boxes for things such as birthdays, race survival kits, etc. A couple of weeks ago they released their 2016 Holiday Edition RunnerBox and I was lucky enough to claim one of these coveted boxes for YOU (well, if you are the winner of this giveaway that is)!

Whether you are a runner trying to win this for yourself or you have a loved one who would enjoy this as a stocking stuffer for Christmas, the recipient will NOT be disappointed. The box is exploding from all the amazing-ness!

Source

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 winner being picked (and notified) on the eighth day. The winner 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 7th at 11:59pm PST and the ONE winner will be chosen on December 8th.


And, finally, the winner 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!)!

PS Just in case you aren't the lucky winner, you can use code "CARLEESCHRISTMAS" for 15% off through 12/31 (because EVERYONE is a WINNER in my book)! So go get your shop on and save a few dollars in the process!

Jessica Bronkema said...

I have never tried a subscription box yet.. but would love to as I get back into training after having a baby!

Leah said...

I've been super hesitant to try RunnerBox.. I did LootCrate for a while and it was always full of stuff I didn't want or need. However this holiday edition looks wonderful! Or should I say... runderful.

Fritz said...

15 days of Christmas looks like it is going to be fun! With lots of great gifts! I have never done a subscription box, but I think it would be fun to try some new products.
