Enough Already!

If I have to watch one more commercial with Obama taking stabs at McCain, or vice versa, I might, might just pass out! Seriously. One more commercial with chickens being cooped up in a cage, or yes or no on eight, AGH! I can't take it anymore. Take down all the signs littering my running pathway, clean up the streets again! I can't take looking at last names for this position, or vote this for this anymore! I feel like this!


Anyways, with election day tomorrow, there are some sick free deals to be had, and many restaurants are taking advantage of them. Hey, the economy's down, go big and give away free stuff to win people back. I'm a believer. Keep your coveted, "I voted" sticker all day, and get freebies all day long! Long Live Democracy!

Anyways, for all you java junkies, Starbucks is giving away one tall coffee to anyone who votes. I assume this is when you are wearing the 'I voted' sticker. Want to read more, click here.

Anyone else running in the morning? This gives you free reign to celebrate or drown your sorrows in either delicious ice-cream, or donuts, or both!

Krispy Kreme Donuts is giving away a star shaped patriotic sprinkled original flavored donut to everyone with the "I voted" sticker. Looks super tasty! To find your nearest Krispy Kreme go here.

So about the ice cream... Ben and Jerry's is giving away free scoops in between 5 pm and 8 pm tomorrow night, to ANYONE! Democracy never did taste any sweeter! It's limited to one per customer, but hey, what a deal! Want some? Find your local B&Js here!

If you live in the Orange County area, feel free to check out all these election deals @ Fast food Maven, for local steals and deals for tomorrow. You'll be finding me at the Daily Grill for free appetizers!

Also, since were are pretty much covering all fast food today, check out Jack in the Box for the latest installment on Jack Antenna Balls, “Beanie Jack.” The new ball features Jack wearing a multi-colored beanie cap topped with a propeller. Beanie Jack are selling for $1 at participating restaurants. And Jacks lookin' out to help! Seventy percent of Beanie Jack sales will go to Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Also I found this great shirt at Run Bargains:

It's a Brooks Women's Equilibrium Long Sleeve, and they only have sizes M-XL left, but it's a great price of 19.95, normally 35.95, and it comes in three different colors. I really like the scoop neck and it's fitted throughout, with cuffed sleeves, which I like when I run because then they stay down.

ALSO! The winner for my first ever giveaway of the Marathon Pace Band is KIM from KIMPOSSIBLE!!!!! Hooray!! :) Her PR for a marathon is from the Kentucky Derby Marathon on April 28, 2006 and it was 4:56:43, and she is now working towards a 4:45! :) Hopefully the Marathon Pace Band can help her reach her goal! Congrats Kim! I will be having another contest soon that my involve a SPIBELT from Overton Fitness!! Once I get mine to do a review I'll also be giving one away... Stay tuned!

Hope everyone's weekend was great, I struggled through five miles on Saturday, but my cold is subsiding and I am going to run to my polling location tomorrow morning before work. I was on the elliptical last night at the gym watching the football games, and it looks like my fantasy team might surprisingly squeak out a win tonight! Tonight I am going to hit up the gym again with some dreadmill running and weights. I'm really working on toning and firming. As they say in the movie "Knocked-Up", don't lose weight, just tighten. :)

Starbucks is giving away free coffee? Dang I might just have to go (Shhhh don't tell anyone. I'm always very loyal to Dunkin Donuts LOL)

Kim said...

I so hear you! I'm so glad it's almost over!

And THANKS for picking me! Even though I know it was a 'drawing'. Wink Wink. Whoo Hoo! Now no more excuses. Ha!

I love the freebies too. I'm with Marcy and love me some Dunkin' Donuts coffee. It's what I make myself every morning. But for free...I can go to Starbucks. Awesome!

Kim said...

Ohh...and you've been tagged :)

Marlene said...

No fair! We don't get any freebies for voting in Canada! Have a donut for me. Now that my race season is over, I need to start focuing on toning... I think I often use racing and even runnig in general as an excuse not to do anything else. ;)

joyRuN said...

I hear ya! Sick of it, too.

I NEED one of those Jack-in-the-Box doodads. I know a really cool person who'd love it. We don't have any around here. I wonder if I can get it on-line?

Free coffee?! Now I am even more excited to vote! Thanks for the tip, that totally made my day.

audgepodge said...

This is so funny... I've been catching the ads and totally want to sign up for the coffee, donut, and ice cream. :)

Danielle said...

So many good deals that I'm missing! I'm so anxious about the election!!!

Anonymous said...

I agree, I am sick of all the political ads.

Glad you are feeling better and thanks for the tips.

Jenn said...

Free coffee, ice cream and donuts? Sugar and caffiene here I come!

j/k. I'm running after I vote, donuts do not like me, and I have little control with ice cream, BUT the coffee I can do. :)

One last day of ads!

Burger said...
