Day 7 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 7 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 awesome.

Up for grabs today is: a prize pack containing 7 items from #WeRunSocial.


For today, DAY SEVEN, one winner will be selected, winning a prize pack including seven items (LOVE hoodie, Sock Game Tight Shirt, PRO Sock, WRS Momentum Wrap, WRS racerback tank, WRS wristband and WRS sling bag). [PS After the fact, #WeRunSocial decided to add FIVE additional winners, all receiving a WRS sling bag of their own! YAY!]

Some of the #WeRunSocial gear folks are rocking across the InterWebs

For those of you who are unfamiliar with #WeRunSocial, here's a quick run-down. Some of us were running the Phoenix Marathon in 2015. We were using the hashtag #ItsGoingDownAtPHX (because it's a downhill course and the party was gonna go down there ;)). Mr. Pavement Runner noticed that even folks not running the race were starting to use the hashtag and join in on the fun. DING - lightning struck his brain and the idea was born! What if there was a running crew that welcomed EVERYONE and ANYONE, no matter the pace, distance, location, etc, and killed it on social media?!

Do you love running? Do you love social media? Then you should be a part of #WeRunSocial. And the BEST part about it?! YOU ARE IN! No applications, no interviews - if you want in, YOU ARE IN! Start using the hashtag #WeRunSocial, follow on Instagram (@WeRunSocial) and Twitter (@WeRunSocial), like on Facebook (WeRunSocial). The gist of it is a supportive, fun-loving, insanely encouraging running crew with the only requirement being "BE GOOD PEOPLE". We take OVER races, the Twitter-sphere, Instagram-land, etc. Make sure you follow EVERYWHERE so you can take part in this love-fest, hit up race meet-ups, follow AWESOME runners, join in on the movement, etc!


I will never be an elite athlete - I run for fun (and actually PAY to do it, so you better believe I am going to enjoy every step of it that I can). Running is a hobby I started about 4.5 years ago and have fallen in love with it. I am forever grateful for all of the fan-freakin'-tastic people running has brought into my life (which is why I may sound a little pushy about the whole #WeRunSocial thing, but I just know how much my life has improved once I started running and met this amazing crew!). So why not rep my tribe wherever I go with all the #WeRunSocial gear?!

Me rocking just some of my #WeRunSocial gear

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 13th at 11:59pm PST and the ONE winner will be chosen on December 14th.


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!)!

My favorite social media is instagram because I simply click on a hashtag and see a whole community talking about one thing. It was really helpful when I first starting running and began losing weight with weight watchers. I would have never known there was a community for all of this if it wasn't for IG.

I guess that would be twitter. I don't however, like the way they have limited me to how many people I can follow. We should be able to follow anyone we want to.
