Mizuno Winner and Albion Fit Giveaway!

I hope you had a great weekend.  Mine was taken over by a lot of errands but it was beautiful beautiful weather here.   I did a terrible long run on Saturday (I went slower than slow and stopped about 1000 times.  Weird because the rest of the week's running went well).  I also went on a bike ride today.  On the beach.
Pics or it didn't happen?  

Oh it totally happened.

Mizuno Contest Winner!  

Thank you for all of your entries!!!  It was so fun to read about the bright things you own.   I really wish Mizuno would let me give shoes to everyone but I guess that would be a bad business practice.  Anyways, the winner of the giveaway is:
NATALIE TORRES!   Time for you to start wearing Elixirs and Inspires!  Email me!  I'll try to track you down as well.  Congrats!!

More Giveaway Stuff!  (Where I pretend to be a fashion blogger)

Apologies to those of you who find giveaways boring.  I get it.  I  probably won't do another for 6 months after this one, it was just random that I got two cool opportunities that I wanted to do at once. 

A couple weeks back, a representative of Albion Fit contacted me about trying their items and doing a giveaway.  I'd never heard of them so I checked out their site.

Turns out it's pretty cute stuff!  I think the style of their stuff is...Retro 50s meets Lululemon meets Mod Cloth.   I actually especially like their bathing suits section.  Albion Fit is also family-owned and they state on their site that they have a commitment to sustainable business practices.  All good stuff.  For these reasons (as well as the reason of "Hell yeah I want you to send me a cute shirt!"), I am happy to do a giveaway for their products and share information about them.

Here's the item that I chose off the site to try and what you can win.  I'd consider it a layering basic that could work for everything from light workouts to a casual work environment to brunch with friends.

The Go-Long Crew with Thumbholes in Rust

I really like this shirt.  It's ridiculously soft to the point that I slept in this the first night I got it (Ok sometimes I'm just to lazy to change into PJs as well).  I think the shirt is pretty flattering and I like the longer cut to it.  While it's billed as a workout top, I'd definitely consider it more of a lounging around watching TV / stretching the night before a race/ light yoga kind of shirt.  You COULD run in it, but I don't think I will.   It also comes in white, grey, and purple.  I can't speak to the longevity of the product as I've only had it about a week, but I'm really hoping it holds up for a long time!

Sooooo who wants a cute long-sleeve tee?   Here's how you play:

1 Entry = Comment.  Tell me about your favorite comfy clothes.  (Ok you don't have to do that, but it's fun to read the comments!).

1 Entry = Follow Albion Fit on Twitter and Tweet at me (@fasterbunny and @albionfit).

1 Entry = Like Albion Fit on Facebook.

It would be awesome if you could comment in the 1) 2) 3) format so I can easily count as well.

Giveaway ends Monday, February 25th at midnight PST.  

PS:  Even if you don't win, you can take $15 off a purchase of $50 or more at Albion Fit using the code fasterbunny15 until March 3rd, 2013!   Hope you like their stuff!


  1. I am a HUGE fan of anything I can bill as "real world acceptable" that is really "running clothing in disguise". Though sometimes I forget to wash things and then it gets awkward...

  2. 1. I am all about comfort and love to lounge in yoga pants and super soft shirts!

    2. Following on twitter

    3. Liked them on FB

    Love the pics!

  3. 1)Have you been practicing your modeling at work? Cute pics! A friend of mine taught me about loungewear recently and the acceptable places to wear it, pretty much anywhere except work. Well, I guess it depends where you work. If we all wear loungewear all the time, soon, real clothes will be phased out!

    1. I await this day where real clothes no longer exist! Yeah I was surprised by how well the pics came out too. I think it's bc I came straight from getting my haircut so it was actually styled for once.

    2. I had looked at their website before once! I think my sister found it (being Utah based and all). I see that your very very cute shirt is only 28$! That's awesome, does it wash well? Lululemon has me brained washed into thinking a shirt has to cost a bit less than 100$ to be cute, so this brand interests me. Will they ship to France for less than $10 hehe?

      BTW you look really really really really pretty in those pictures!! Red is great on you!

      To respond to Anisa.....actually now that I'm getting big I've started wearing my lounge-wear to work :D. Yay pregnancy!?!?!?!

    3. I don't really know about washing bc I've only washed it once. It's fine after one wash...I'm pretty sure it can't be lulu quality, but it's probably "normal shirt" quality? It's super stretchy so that could be good for having a baby, right?

      Thanks for the good pic comment:) . Yeah I almost feel odd posting those pictures as I feel they are more flattering than they should be. hah.

  4. Also, I don't see a bike in your pic. Are you just wearing helmet when you run these days? Must have been a really bad run ;)

    1. Hey man, a little extra safety never hurts while running, right? ;-)

  5. I just snooped around their website, it all looks so comfy and beautiful...I'd love to try some of their stuff. Thanks for the giveaway.
