The big G.


Today I am having a GIVEaway.
(One that I hope has more than 2 people in the comment section, I'm not bitter about the last giveaway I promise)


I bet your wondering what I could be giving away...
and I won't make you wait long...

My GARMIN 405 watch!




See, here's the thing...

I used to be all into learning how to run and buying a bunch of SkinnyRunner shirts.
Don't get me wrong, I still love my SR shirts and wear them out to eat, to yoga, to the mall, and other places because they are comfy and stylish.




But back to the story...I thought to be a great runner like all the blogs I read, I HAD to buy a $175 dollar watch that to this day I still do not know how to work.
But guess what? If you are into running, then you should have this watch.
That's right, HAVE it.
It's a dust collector in my room at the moment.


So I figured since it's the holiday/giving season, this is one way for me to "pay it forward" in a way.  I have a gut feeling that someone out there reading this could really really use this watch.


(My photography skills may need some work, but you will get the watch, the charger, and maybe a couple other goodies)



The following rule is all you need to be the recipient: 

YOU MUST BE A FOLLOWER OF MY BLOG AND LEAVE YOUR NAME/EMAIL IN THE COMMENT SECTION


Now for extra entries (leave a separate comment for each one)
is to do the following things: 

Follow me on Twitter (@inthebasketcass) 


Tweet about the giveaway and mention me


Follow me on Instagram (@alwaysablogsmaid) 


Do a blog post linking this giveaway to your page 





and that's it folks.
5 entries to get you this wonderful watch (well I'm assuming it's wonderful, I for one will never know)
Winner will be chosen the Monday after Black Friday...so a week.
Good luck!!
