I don’t use Twitter too often, which you might notice if you follow me. I mostly use it to read what other people say, and sometimes I’ll reply to someone or whatnot. But being a follower paid off for me big time yesterday when I received a Direct Message from Mizuno Running that I’d won a free pair of Mizuno Wave Rider 15s!!!

This is a version of the shoe, I'm not sure if that's the color I'm getting, though!

They had been running a promotion that said when they got 2,000 followers, they’d give away a free pair of shoes. Well, they ended up deciding to give away 2 pairs and I was the 2nd name drawn!


I’m so excited!!!

I happened to check my phone and realize that I’d won right as I was checking out at Academy Sports. Here is what I bought:


1) BCG capri running tights

2) Nike Tempo shorts

3) Nike Dri-Fit running socks

4) NIke ankle sleeve for my hurting ankle

5) Nike Water Bottle

6) Gu Brew tablets, Gu Chomps, and PowerBar Energy Gel

My distraction while checking out,  due to excitement over winning shoes, made me miss the fact that the cashier had put the Tempo shorts in my bag but they hadn’t rung up for my final total. When I got to my car, I decided randomly to check the receipt just because I hadn’t been paying attention, and I noticed right away that the most expensive thing I’d bought hadn’t rung up! I went back inside and explained what happened to the customer service lady, and took the shorts back to the check-out counter and paid for them. One of the workers said, “You’re a good girl. I would have left!” I couldn’t do that though! Maybe me winning the shoes was a pre-emptive reward for going back and letting the cashier know about the mistake. Who knows! Smile
