The good people at CMY5K have given me a pair of entries to give away to their fun 5K in Seattle!
What exactly is CMY5K?
If you’ve done a traditional 5K, you know they can be a bit bland. But CMY5K is the running equivalent of Dorothy’s house landing on the Wicked Witch. Waves of virginal white runners and walkers will start every 3-5 minutes. Then, at each kilometer, CMY5K staff and volunteers will powder participants in Color Splash Zones. Each zone dispenses a different color; 1K-cyan, 2K-magenta, 3K-yellow, 4K-green, 5K-a combination of all colors. So what if you should accidentally “taste the rainbow?” Not to worry. The powder is 100% natural and safe.
When and where is CMY5K in Seattle?
On Sunday, August 12 2012 at Magnuson Park at 9AM.

Do the tasks above and I will randomly pick a winner to win a pair (two) entries on July 17th at 10AM.
Recently I received a direct message from NikeTown Seattle on Twitter. They said as one of their loyal followers, they wanted to hook me up with their new Nike+ FuelBand! Awesome!
From Nike.com website:
Nike+ FuelBand tracks your activity through a sports-tested accelerometer, then translates every move into NikeFuel. Nike+ FuelBand tracks running, walking, dancing, basketball – and dozens of everyday activities. So put in on and get moving.
It is pretty easy to use. There is one button on the FuelBand and it will scroll through each of the different areas each time it is pressed – Fuel (NikeFuel points), Cals (Calories), Steps, and Time. The FuelBand easier transfers the statistics through the USB charging dock (included!) or through bluetooth to iPhone and then updates your information on the Nike site.
You set daily goals and see if you can meet or excede them! I picked it up two days ago and have been wearing it every day since! Definitely a fun and very informative gadget to wear. I never realized how many steps taken, calories burned, and miles I’ve walked each day!
