Win a pair of running shoes worth up to £90

On the fifth day of Christmas I bring you a competition designed to get you fit with the chance to win a new pair of running shoes of your choice from sportsshoes.com up to the value of £90!  You might need them come the New Year anyway, if your new years resolution is to get fit after too many mince pies and portions of Christmas cake, then rather than dust off your old running shoes you can wear these to improve your overall health.


With everyone directing what little money there is towards Christmas presents and stocking up on Christmas food and drink, some items get sadly neglected!  My trainers have a hole in the front but they will have to make do until January when I can claw back some of the budget to spend on myself hopefully! 

With up to £90 to spend though there is a huge selection available to pick from, lots of different colours and styles.  All the top names are featured on sportsshoes.com so if you have a favourite brand you are well accommodated here.  Finding a pair I love is not the hard part, its actually finding the motivation to get outdoors running, but I might be inspired if I had some decent footwear!  Some of the running shoes are very bright so they might help dampen the winter blues with a splash of colour.  
It’s a long winter so I might as well be comfortable (lots of the shoes are cushioned) if I am going out in the cold running around, perhaps I could convince the boys to join in too, then they might burn off some of their never ending energy supplies!!!

To enter the competition simply fill in the rafflecopter below by the 18th of December.  I cannot promise it will get you out jogging but I can promise the winner will look very stylish in whatever shoes they pick!

    Well a few months back I started running and eating healthy. I was majorly surprised at how much I enjoyed running, I thought I would hate it. However it soon got cold and I wanted to eat more stodgy comfort foods with the winter fast approaching so before you know it I'd hung up my trainers and switched the salads for winter warming stodginess. - However, I am restarting this health kick in January, I hit 30 on Christmas eve and I feel getting healthy is now something I must do :)
