Santa’s Coming! I KNOW Him! {Ugly Sweater Run Ticket Giveaway}



The Ugly Sweater Run is coming back to Omaha for the Third Year in a row on Sunday, December 14th.




I am such a sucker for themed “fun” races and so of course jumped at the chance to participate again!

How can you pass up ridiculously ugly Christmas outfits, hot chocolate, fun with friends and free beer?



The event is family friendly as well, with kids under 10 participating FREE!



And who knows?  You might run into Buddy the Elf himself!



Just the facts, Jack:

  • Sunday, December 14th @ 11am
  • Starts at the Century Link, Omaha.
  • With registration you receive a vintage hat, unlimited hot chocolate, and choice of a Winter lager, Boston lager or Angry Orchard Hard Ciders.
  • Ugly Sweater Run funds benefit the Save The Children organization
  • After race celebration with all your new Ugly Sweater wearing friends.
  • Since the race will be finishing up around lunch time, make the MOST of your SUNDAY FUNDAY and hit up the Old Market for some lunch and shenanigans with your crew!

Happy 1 Year Blogiversary to Harleys & Heels! And a GIVEAWAY!

Happy Blogiversary


As I sit here tonight, looking back at the last year, I can’t help but feel grateful.

Grateful for the life I live, the people in it, the support system surrounding me and the experiences I’ve lived in the last 365 days.

I had no idea the direction of Harleys & Heels when I started it one year ago to the day.   I had been mulling around the idea for well over a month, and like most decisions I make in my life, I sit and think for a long time before acting.   If I don’t have a clear picture of something, I most often don’t follow through.

This time was different.

I took a leap of faith and went with it.  I had no idea my direction, what I was going to write about, who I was going to tell.  I just started it and let it grow with me.

And quite honestly, I am loving the direction it has taken.  I have “met” some pretty amazing people in this blogging world.   There are some great blogs out there and the community within is pretty outstanding.   I intend to eventually meet some of these lovely ladies someday as well.   🙂

Omaha Bloggers Network – my connection with you has been great.   I look forward to being a part of this growing community and thank you for recognizing me as a Blogger.

To my loyal followers – Thank You!   The fact that you follow along to my ramblings is pretty awesome.

To my family – thanks for the loving support. ❤

To my husband – thanks for letting me sit every night and write.  Thanks for allowing me to be involved in countless activities and still remain supportive.  And, of course, thanks for your humor in all of this.  I can always count on you to make fun of me for all of the above.


Harleys & Heels is one of my outlets.

Harleys & Heels is a fun place for me to share my life, my thoughts, my goals and my dreams.

I am forever humbled that you all continue to follow along.


And now for the fun part!

As a token of my appreciation, I have a GIVEAWAY!

Color Me Rad Omaha – GIVEAWAY!


Say WHAT? 

Two free entries!   Up for Grabs! 

Could it be YOU?

Thanks to the Awesome COLOR ME RAD folks, I have a Two-Pack of Tickets to giveaway for the Omaha/Council Bluffs Race on April 26th!

Yep Yep!  One for YOU and one for a friend!

What is Color Me Rad?

Color Me Rad is a 5K that fires off in a blaze of color bombs, color cannons and multi-toned courses that guarantee your outlook will be brighter, your boyfriend will be more affectionate, your boss will finally remember your name, the hair on your head will grow back and the hair on your back will fall out, and your gray outlook will turn green like a spring morning.


Historically, running has only been acceptable when trying to escape the law, personal responsibility, the truth, and grizzly bears.

Instead of running FROM something, get ready to run FOR something at this year’s Color Me Rad.

Run for the hell of it.


How it works:

You’ll start off with a shirt as pure and white as your granddaddy’s dentures, and throughout the run, they’ll coat your chaffing thighs with Color Bombs of blue, green, pink, purple, and yellow until you come out like a tie-dyed hippy on the other side.

Each section of the run adds a new explosion of color to your clean, painter’s palate until you cross the finish line into a final blitzkrieg of color.



Prize pack includes an entry code good for two tickets to the Omaha/Council Bluffs Color Me Rad Run coming Saturday, April 26th at 9AM!

Enter Now by clicking link below.  Entries close at Midnight, Thursday, February 7th!
