{Giveaway}What would YOU do with 1 million dollars?





There are a few things on my mind as I sit down to type this post:

1. I hope my oatmeal cookie creation that is currently in the oven "pans" out
yep, I made a joke
2. I do not understand the Olympic sport of "cycling sprint"

3. I am in a giving mood. How lucky for all of you!
so lets make you all run pretty (or handsome)



 Three weeks ago my friends at ArmPocket sent me this little beauty to use in my 10k training.
We have been pretty much inseparable ever since, and it's not only because she is pink and black.

This little diddy has definitely improved my run.
I do not fidget with my phone, nor does it move while I flail my arms through the air as if I was practicing ballet rather than running.

The strap is made of memory foam, which makes my right arm feel like a cloud is attached to it.
Making the left arm jealous.

The zip pocket holds credit cards, gels, keys...gold medals.
Whoops sorry Olympics distracted me.
 But it is big enough to hold much more then you will need on your run through the neighborhood.



So now that I have gushed over this product, I have to break the news that I will NOT be giving one of these away.

Instead I am giving away a years supply of SPAM!



JUST KIDDING!

I am giving away an armpocket to ONE lucky winner!

Here is how you enter:
Follow @armpocket on twitter and say "I want to win an @armpocket from @juskeepsweating, so I can run in style!"

 Leave a comment below telling me what you would do with 1 million dollars.

I will be picking a winner on SATURDAY AUGUST 11th.

Good Luck!

  2. With 1 million dollars, I would definitely sit on my bed and throw it all in the air, like in every movie, commercial, and TV show, I've seen! (come on, you would too!) Then, of course after all the fun is over, I'd pay off my parents debt and my school debt, and buy my own house to start my own family.

  3. A million dollars huh? Well, first, since I am a school teacher I'd pay off my debts since I may not in my life haha! Second, I'd help my brother and SIL set some adventures up for the niece and nephew to try. And lastly, I'd give some to my school - to help buy some uniforms for the kids, laptops, etc.

  4. Oh man. A million bucks seems too good to be true! Right now my parents are seperating and my mom is juggling a tough job, bills, and the divorce. Basically I would pay off the house for her, plus give her half of what's left and take us both on a much needed vacation. I'd also go running on the beaches of Monte Carlo, lol :)

  5. I got excited about the Spam!! I've got a lot of Spam eaters in my family (not me, though -- yuck!)

  12. If I had a million dollars, I don't know what I'd do! I live a frugal life and am pretty happy about that. I'd probably keep it simple: pay off my student loans, go back to school, take up a new hobby, have my own art studio and design my own house...the rest would all go to philanthropic efforts.

  13. I would take the money and pay off my husbands student loan debt...finishing his doctorate this fall. Then buy us a nice home out right and enjoy life with no mortgage or student loan debt!

  14. If I had a million dollars, I know for sure I would donate some of it to various organizations like Make a Wish and Wounded Warrior. I'd also donate some to smaller, unknown organizations as well. I love giving back. I'd also use some of the money to help out certain family members who are in financial need. i hate seeing loved ones struggle. I'm not one to splurge on myself, really. I'd probably put the rest of the money into my student loans and save some for future grad school. I'm a health science major minoring in public health, but I'd love to expand my education in the health field down the road. I'm not going to lie though, I know I'd also use some of that money for new workout gear as well. I could use some new sneakers and a nice heart rate monitor. :)

  15. With one million dollars I would save it, I know that sounds lame but I hate worrying about money so I would at least save 3/4 of it and use the rest to pay off bills. I am lame. In my dream world I would buy Arctic Zero monthly!

  22. With a million dollars, I'd buy another home so that I could get out of the desert (which I love 8 months out of the year) in the summer. And I'd over to lululemon.

    I do not understand cycling sprint either, although it was exciting for at least 10 seconds of each race. It was the first 2/3 that I was scratching my head.

  41. ��if I had a million dollars, I would you a monkey��
    Seriously I'd use some to pay off remodeling our home, paying off medical bills, my husband just had a massive heart attack, more on that if a sec and id go to china to run the great wall marathon (5,000+ steps, what?!) my sister lives there so if you want to come we'd have a place to stay!! My husband is a healthy 40 yo who eats right, works out, runs and looks great. His cholesterol is crazy high and statin meds don't work well enough on their own. so I'd use $ to help pay for alternative treatments. we'd also like to give away heart scans through our running club that promotes heart health (created long before it became personal! )
