TBR Cinco de Mayo Contest: 5 Days of Prizes until 5/5

Thursday, 1 May 2014  |  News + Promos

It’s that time of year again!

If you’re a loyal reader of TBR (and I must thank you for that!), you know that over the past years, I throw a little contest over here in the days leading up to May 5.  It was called the “5 Days to 5/5 Contest” but, this year, I’ve decided to rename it to “Cinco de Mayo.”  It evokes more happiness and, er, it’s less of a tongue twister.  From now on, I hereby declare that it’s not just Mexico and the U.S. that shall celebrate Cinco de Mayo, but festivities shall also commence in this tiny little blog of mine!

WHY CELEBRATE TBR CINCO DE MAYO?

First, it’s my birthday.  I turn…gasp…38.  Some would panic about this, but it’s not that big a deal to me.  Mainly because when people ask me how old I am, I’m still stuck at 27.  Seriously.  I sincerely believe I’m still 27 sometimes.  Other times I think and act like I’m 12.

Second, it’s my 7th blog anniversary.  Yep, for people who don’t know how TBR started, I created the TBR logo and uploaded the first few blogposts on the day of my 30th birthday on our dining table in all of 30 minutes.  I clicked that upload button and thought that no one would ever read the blog (hence, if you read the archives, I disclose high school crushes and completely embarrassing and unnecessary information there).  Lo and behold, after a few years, I actually fooled a number of you into reading…and running. Hehe.  Now, it’s been a full 7 years of writing about running!  (That is so freakin’ long that I’m actually excited for you to see the changes that are coming for TBR.  Come back next week!)

Third, as I’ve said in the past, it’s my time to thank you all for the support, friendship, kind words, screams of encouragement during a race, or just a simple “Hi TBR!” when we bump into each other.  Thank you for clicking on these pages and reading the crazy things that I write because it’s great to feel acknowledged, fantastic to know that someone is making use of what I’m sharing, and, best of all, it’s just awesome to connect with other people in this sometimes mad and lonely world.  Thank you to each of you for allowing me keep TBR and this bull in me alive so that I can continue to do what I love doing and, hopefully, touch even more people’s lives through running.

PARTY TIME!

So, as my way of thanking you all, I spend the next five days trying to make you guys happy!  Now, what makes runners happy…apart from breaking PRs? hahaha.  Fantastic running gear and shoes to make their run even more fun!

From May 1 to May 5, the next five days until my birthday and 7th blog anniversary, I’ll be giving away loads of stuff worth in total over P30,000 to more than a handful of lucky runners!  Each day will have new prizes, new contest mechanics, and new winners.

Thank you so much to our generous sponsors who have donated prizes for our contest!  Mwah!

Shall we begin?
