and the Winner is...

Do you ever see those giveaways on Instagram and think what are the odds of actually winning the contest? Well the odds can be in your favor,  you just never know until you try!

I was always Negative Nancy when it came to giveaways, until I started trying my luck. You can really benefit from Social Media to not only gain self exposure but also get many perks. I always get asked how I get so lucky with getting free shoes, clothes, etc. but it's really all thanks to Instagram.

That was the case when it came to the giveaway Race Place was hosting along with Rock My Run and JLab Audio of a free race entry to any race in the US, lifetime subscription to Rock my Run, and a free pair of bluetooth earbuds from JLab Audio. All you had to do was follow the 3 accounts and tag a friend, simple as that, no need to repost anything or spam any accounts. 

After some exchange of emails between Race Place and I, we came to an agreement that instead of a race entry I would get a pair of sneakers from Road Runner Sports, but not just ANY pair of sneakers, I would get to pick any two that I wanted and they would send me one of the two! *faints* haha. (I mean, who can say no to a free pair of sneakers?!?!) So of course, being the Nike Flyknit Racer lover that I am, I immediately went on the RRS website to see what color racers were available in my size, that I didn't already own so I can ask for those. My second choice were the Nike Free RN Distance, but was really crossing my fingers that I would receive the racers.

I was also contacted by JLab Audio to choose what color wireless earbuds I wanted and I went with the all black (very great sound quality by the way AND they're waterproof!! Can't get any better than that!!)

Truly extremely thankful for all these companies that care about their supporters and give back to their followers. Can't thank Race Place enough for selecting me as the winner. Next time you see a giveaway on Instagram, give it a shot, you never know how lucky you can be!
