Up & RunningYou guys sure do like your watermelon! Thanks very much for your entries in the Up & Running giveaway. I wanted to bust out the barbecue until I remembered I've still not cleaned it from that one time it was sunny enough to use it last year. Hmm.

So, the random number generator has spoken and the lucky winner is…

She's a frappucino fan:

  1. awww, gutted not to have won — have been eagerly watching the blog to see whom the lucky winner was going to be (hoping it was going to be me!) well done Svava!! Congratulations and enjoy the course xxx

  2. Congrats Svava, you’re going to have such a blast!!

    I hope those of you who didn’t win sign up anyway – it really has been the best thing I have done for myself in several years and not just for the running. My confidence and happiness in my own skin has increased so much and I love what my body can DO, rather than obsessing about what it looks like…

  3. I’m another participant on the current 5 km Up and Running course, and I just wanted to say the same thing as Phillipakate. I am absolutely loving the course, I can honestly say it has done more for me than any other fitness activity I have ever done. It is really an amazing opportunity and amazing value, so if you are thinking about it – do it!

  4. I can´t believe it! I won! This is going to be fabulous, I am just thrilled. Thank you so much Shauna, all through my 6 stone (2 to go) weightloss you´ve been an inspiration and a role model, and now this. Fantastic. Thank you so, so much xx

  5. I forgot to enter, but is it too late to talk about how much I love sangria? I just learned how to make it with oranges/cherries/pomegranate liquor/whatever else sounds good. I’m turn into an amphibian this summer sitting in the hot tub with a big pitcher of it. Come and join me!

  6. Hi! This is such a cool blog. I’m so glad I found it! I ran my first 5k last summer and it was so much fun. I need to get back on track so I can do it again. You have been an inspiration. Thank you.

  7. Congrats to the winner..

    Ah, I guess it is not my fate to be a runner .. 🙂

    phew.. !!

    May the aerobics, cycling dancing and wii madness continue in lieu- probably I have enough to get on with at the moment!
