BeeCause Charms GIVEAWAY!!

Welcome to our second ever giveaway! I hope you will like this product as much as I do!! As you all know, I love anything colorful, bright-pink, festive or sparkly and this product possesses all those qualities!

I first discovered BeeCause Charms at the Boston Marathon expo just last month. BeeCause Charms are little charms that slip onto shoelaces to remind you of all the reasons, people and causes you run for. I purchased 2 shoe charms, a pink breast cancer ribbon charm and also a sparkly 26.2 charm. In addition to these charms, they also have 13.1 charms, yellow ribbons, America flag ribbons. If you are running in honor or memory of someone (or if you just want a picture of your child), you may be interested in a heart shaped charm that you can slip a picture of your loved one in. A really cool charm that is not shown on the website but was at the expo was a "Boston Bound" shoe charm for those of you trying to qualify for Boston/have qualified. Here are some pictures from the BeeCause Charms website.



My first time running with these charms on my shoe was during the Boston Marathon. I absolutely loved them! Every time I looked down at my feet and saw the sparkly pink it made me so happy! I was a little nervous that they would bounce around on my laces but it wasn't a problem at all. I felt the breast cancer charm move once or twice during the race but it wasn't annoying, instead it made me remember of just how many sick people there are and how lucky I really am. It sounds cheesy but I feel like it helped me run stronger.

Here's a picture of my shoes with my charms.
