CLOSED - Win a pair of running shoes with sportsshoes.com!

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the winner!

It's that time of year.  Believe it or not, summer is on its way.  And with it comes the sinking feeling you get when you try on your swimsuit for the first time since last year.

Fear not, for I have just the solution!  What would you say to a brand new pair of running shoes, worth up to £90, from sportsshoes.com?  Because that's what I've got for one of you lucky people!

I'm really, deeply, not a runner.  Swimming is more my thing, so I've sought SqueakyDaddy's opinion on this, as he's a regular runner, and this is what he has to say.  "Running is great.  Once you've got a decent pair of shoes, it's free, and you really do lose weight!  I find it's really good if I'm stressed out, I can think about things while I'm out, with nothing to distract me.  Oh, and it's also a good way to catch up with podcasts & that."

It's true though, a good pair of running shoes is vital, and can protect you from all sorts of injuries.  The range at sportsshoes.com is so varied you can look and feel fabulous, on your way to a new level of summer confidence, and there's a whole lot more than just shoes, with everything you could possibly need to become a real runner.  Take a look for yourself: http://www.sportsshoes.com/running/

Even as a non-runner (that makes me sound like a horse!), I've got my eye on these Nike Air Zoom Vomero shoes.  I'd probably do nothing more strenuous than the weekly shop in them, but when the supermarket car park has a 2 hour limit or a £70 fine, sometimes you've GOT to run!

The lucky winner will receive a pair of shoes of their choice, up to the value of £90.  All you've got to do is follow the easy rafflecopter instructions.  The competition is open internationally, please check the terms & conditions on the rafflecopter widget before entering.  (You may need to be on a desktop/laptop to use the rafflecopter widget. If no form appears, please refresh)

Good luck!

  3. i am a size 7.5 (USA), which i always thought was because i used to dance ballet with pointe shoes since when I was younger my feet grew to 8/8.5 and then for awhile it's gone down to 7.5. It's probably totally normal and not some permanent distortion i'm imagining haha.

  6. I'm a size 7 which, by chance, is my favourite number too. Plus of course, it's the number of deadly sins, plus the number of wonders in the world. I suppose you could also throw in the fact that it's an Australian tv channel & one final thing is that 7lbs is half a stone in weight:)
