ONE

While my post title is also the name of unquestionably one of the greatest songs of all time by one of the best bands of all time, it is also the number of years my blog has been part of the blogosphere. Today marks my blog's one year anniversary or birthday or whatever it is blogs celebrate.

For the past year, I have been sharing my ups and downs of running (and life in general), "meeting" amazing runners and people, learning the ins and outs of running from some of the best runners around, and establishing lasting friendships. Thank you for being a part of that.

And what better way to mark the occasion and say thanks than a giveaway?

Gone for a RUN has generously provided this BibFOLIO for one of my lucky readers to win:

Since I first discovered Gone for a RUN, I have wanted a BibFOLIO. I didn't know what to do with my bibs but knew I wanted to keep them. The BibFOLIO was my answer. It is perfect!! I know because I am the proud owner of my very own BibFOLIO. In an upcoming post, I'll tell you more about my BibFOLIO and why I love it. In the meantime, get to entering to win your own!

Here is how you can enter the BibFOLIO giveaway:

  • Follow my blog. If you were a follower before today, be sure to mention that too. Since this giveaway is to celebrate one year of I Have Run, you get an extra entry for spending any part of that year with me (I know who you are, so be honest). Leave me a comment. (One or two entries)
  • Visit the Gone for a RUN website and tell me about your visit: what you like, what you want, what you wish they had, your favorite BibFOLIO, etc. Leave me a comment. (One entry)
  • LIKE the Gone for a RUN Facebook page . Leave me a comment. (One entry)
  • Post a link to this giveaway on your blog, Facebook and/or Twitter. Leave a comment letting me know where you posted a link. (Up to three entries)

This giveaway will end next Wednesday, June 2nd. The winner will be announced on June 3rd.

RUN: You know you are a runner when you recognize a Boston Marathon jacket on someone while you are picking up take-out and you have to resist the temptation to sit down at his table and ask him about his race.

  37. Just started following! Noticed you had the Freedom Run on your race schedule and wanted to make sure you knew it is scheduled to be held on July 3rd instead of July 5th. At least that's what the website says. http://www.topofutahmarathon.com/15k/

    I'm from Cache Valley so maybe I'll get to "run" into you sometime at a race!
