Back with a fun Brooks giveaway!

My reviews and giveaways have taken a back seat to baby preparation and work. But, I'm back with a fun one for you!

Team BILBO Giveaway!

(BILBO = Brooks Innovation Laboratory for Biomechanical Observation)

Brooks is introducing their new SAC technology, now available in their Glycerin 8 shoe. Check out their video:



In support of the new campaign, they've generously offered to give a pair of shorts or a jacket to one lucky reader. Who wouldn't want some new gear? I know I would. In fact, if I were to pick a pair of shorts, I'd go for the Infiniti short:

And for the jacket, I would choose the LSD Lite:


Both would probably make awesome gifts, you know, if you were ever looking to get me one . . . :-)

Anyway, one of you will get to win YOUR choice of jacket or short, in whatever color or size you'd like.

To enter:

Leave me a comment and let me know which Brooks item you'd choose if you won.

Additional entries:

As always, you can gain a few additional entries (leave one comment per entry for the additional ones to count):

Good luck!
