Spartan Cruise & Race Giveaway


Hey folks!  I know I have totally been MIA lately.  It’s been a crazy couple of weeks that consisted of family coming to town, several family birthday parties, a husband going out-of-town, potty training a toddler, and much more.  I’ve hardly had time to wash our clothes, let alone blog.  But, the “rush” of events has calmed down and I have more to share with you.

And, to beg for forgiveness, I am coming back in full-swing with a giveaway!!  YAY! 
Please notice that there are TWO giveaways going on here.  Check them both out and be sure to enter both of them!

This is so amazing!  First off, Spartan is putting together a cruise to the Bahamas that also includes a Spartan Sprint.  (If you’re not fully aware of Spartan, you should be.  They are the world’s premier obstacle race company.  They orchestrate obstacle races at different levels with different lengths . . . all over the world.  What’ super cool is that the Spartan Race World Championship Race is on September 20th in Killington Vermont.  It’s so cool that you can watch it on NBC Sports.  Spartan is legit, my friends.  Totally legit!) 

There are Spartan Races in 17 countries, and there are themed cruises, but never a themed Spartan Race cruise – until now!  Spartan Race, the world’s premier obstacle race company, will host a deluxe Caribbean cruise from the Port of Miami to a private island in the Bahamas on March 6 to 9, 2015.

This awesome experience will feature an all-inclusive Norwegian Cruise Line cruise, a 3+mile/15+ obstacle Spartan Sprint on a private island in the Bahamas’ Great Stirrup Cay, live music, dancing, all meals, and what’s considered best of all: a $50,000 prize pool for Elite racers.

Does this not sound like a blast!?  The good news is that you can enter to win a giveaway for 2 including airfare and the cruise out of Miami (US residents only)!

On top of that, I’m personally giving away an entry to a Spartan race.  It’s your choice as you can use it for any open heat in any Spartan Race in the continental US.  You can head on over to the Spartan Website and you’ll see how many races you can choose from.  You have one week to enter and I’ll announce the winner (who will be chosen at random) here on my blog next Monday, September 22.  All you have to do to enter is to make a comment on this post telling me what your favorite Mimi’s recipe is or one you want to try soon.  Easy Peasy!

So, there you have it!  Two giveaways right here!  I hope this will make up for my lack of posts lately.  I’ve got some real good recipes in the upcoming line-up, so get ready and make sure to come back and check them out.  

Good luck with the giveaway!  I can’t wait to see who wins!

Friday Feature – Giveaway: Spartan Race!

I FINALLY created a FaceBook page for Mimi’s Fit Foods!  I know  . . . it’s long overdue, but at least it’s up now!  Hopefully this will help you to find and save healthy recipes even easier.  I would LOVE it if you would go like my page.  And, as I start posting stuff I would also LOVE it if you would like, comment, and share anything that you find great!  This helps me to gauge what you all like and then I can offer more recipes/posts that you’ll love.

In order to celebrate the new FaceBook page, I thought a GIVEAWAY would be fun!

How many of you love doing the obstacle course races?  Here’s a race that you’re bound to love!

If you aren’t familiar with Spartan Race, it’s been voted the #1 obstacle race by Outside Magazine and is the global leader in obstacle racing since 2005.  One of the cool things I like about Spartan is that they have different levels/distance races.  You can do a Sprint (3+ Miles/15+ Obstacles), Super (8+ Miles/20+ Obstacles), a Beast (13+ Miles/25+ Obstacles), or an Ultra Beast (26+ Miles/50+ Obstacles).  Thus, there is really a race for anyone at any level.  Plus, there’s always an opportunity to go bigger and better than the last Spartan Race you may have done.

This video gives you a taste of what it’s like.

Cool, yeah!?

You can find a Spartan Obstacle Race just about anywhere now days!  Like, how cool would it be to to head to Arizona to participate in the Arizona Spartan Sprint (February 8th & 9th)?  Or, how about the Nevada Spartan Super (April 5th)?

If either of these events interest you, you can go to the Spartan Events page to register.  You can also visit the page to see if there is a race near you, or a destination race you might want to travel to.

Now for the GIVEAWAY fun!  I’m giving away one free registration to any open heat in any 2014 Spartan Race in the continental US.  This holds up to $185 in value.  You can use it yourself or gift it to a friend! 

Entering the contest is easy!  All you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me your favorite workout activity (running is mine, but I also love rollerblading!).

There are ways to earn 2 more entries.  Head on over to my Facebook Page and like my page then leave a comment here on the blog telling me did so.  That’ll give you one more entry.  And, for your 3rd entry, comment on and share the Spartan Race Giveaway on your page.

SO . . . let’s recap the ways to earn entries.
