Black and Gold SPARKLY SOUL Giveaway!

Two months from today it the Pittsburgh Marathon!! This race holds a special place in my heart. The Pittsburgh Marathon 5K was my first race after high school in 2012, and it was also my first marathon! I have done so many events since then, but I still believe that Pittsburgh puts on one of the best events. The race weekend is quickly reaching a sell out, so if you are considering registering, do it soon! You do not want to miss out!

This year, I will be racing the 5K on Saturday and running the anchor leg of my relay team on Sunday. When I cross the finish line of the relay, I will have completed all of the Pittsburgh Marathon races in consecutive years. 

You guys know how much I love Sparkly Soul headbands. They really are the best. I have finished all four of my marathons wearing one, and have not had to worry about losing my headband through the 26.2 miles! 

I love my Sparkly Soul headbands!

I love being a Sparkly Soul ambassador and when I started getting asked about a Pittsburgh themed Sparkly Soul headband, that sparked the interest of the ladies! They asked if I would host a giveaway and of course I said yes!!

I love wearing my Pittsburgh marathon shirts when I go to other races. I usually get stopped by someone who is thinking about running it or other runners of steel who have already completed one of the races!

Showing off my Pittsburgh pride in Disney World!

I will be giving away five Sparkly Soul black and gold headbands in either thin or wide width. This giveaway is going to be an Instagram giveaway! I want to see how you represent your city/favorite race! The giveaway starts today (March 3, 2015) and ends March 8, 2015 at Midnight Eastern.

    Green would represent my town (Dillsburg) but I love my black and gold band. Go Pens!

  7. Never tried Sparkly Soul, but it seems many people LOVE them.

  8. I love Sparkly Soul! I wore one during my first half marathon and it was perfect. I live in Anchorage, and I don't know if we have city colors...we don't have any sports teams so I have nothing real to go on! But I'd say that our colors would be green and blue. Green for the trees and mountains on the right side of town, and blue for the ocean on the left!

  9. My hometown is blue and gold! I have no idea about my new city! :)

  10. Would love to own my first Sparkly Soul band :)

  11. Probably purple and white, those are our high school's colors

  12. Hm I guess blue and gray because that's the university of Memphis colors but for my state it would be orange and white!

  13. I LOVE my black and gold Sparkly Soul band and always get so many compliments on it! I am really digging the new stardust band in the Princess collection!!

  14. Blue for sure!! or white for snow
