Today is a big blog milestone for Running with Miles! I have been writing this blog now for a few years (it will be 4 years in December) and today I hit my 2,000th blog post! I didn’t even realize I was closing in on that number until happened to see that on my dashboard the other day. That works out to being just about 1.5 posts per day – and I have been averaging more like 3 per day over the past year or so which shows that posts have picked up over time! Not being a 200 word per post kind of writer, that equals a lot of written words over the past few years!


Thank you to all of you who have been along for this journey! Thank you to Randy Petersen and BoardingArea for hosting this blog for the last couple of years as well. I have been able to meet and interact with so many more of you as a result of it and you have helped me quite a bit to grow as a writer. I only hope that I have been of some help, and maybe even entertainment, to you as well!

So, to celebrate my 2,000th blog post, I am giving a few things away. I am separating them below as each person can only win one line item:

  • Alaska Airlines upgrade certificate (1)
  • Alaska Airlines upgrade certificate (1)
  • Alaska Airlines upgrade certificate (1)
  • Alaska Airlines upgrade certificate (1)
  • $50 Amazon Gift Card (1)
  • $50 Amazon Gift Card (1)
  • $15 iTunes Gift Card (1)
  • $15 iTunes Gift Card (1)
  • United Club Passes (2)
  • United Club Passes (2)


The rules are pretty simple:

  • Giveaway runs through Thursday, August 27th at 11:59PM ET
  • You can enter once per day by leaving a comment below (can be about anything but keep the language clean). If you have a preference for a prize, please mention which item you are interested in.
  • You can earn an additional entry by following me on Twitter (if you do not already) and sending out a tweet with the hashtag #RwMGiveaway. The tweet can be about anything travel or running.
  • I am providing these giveaway items and am the final judge. Winners will be chosen randomly.

Thanks for following along and reading! Please be sure to keep following me as I embark on what will easily be the most difficult/wide “mileage run” ever written about on this blog! Less than two weeks until go time!
