Yayy! I'm throwing a little party, because I just went on my 200th run! If you follow me on Instagram, you know that after each run I post a picture, usually of my shoes and something colorful. My instagram series #joelixruns has been so motivating for me throughout the past fifteen months and the support has been heartwarming. A BIG thank you to all my virtual cheerleaders: you are the best!
To celebrate my victory properly I teamed up with the brand of my running kicks: Kalenji. Last year when I decided to start running, I went to the nearest Decathlon and tried on all the running shoes they had in store. I had to set aside my usual shoe-habit and choose the most comfortable shoes instead of the prettiest. Function over vanity: not very easy for someone who never wears sneakers, like me 😉
Finally a pair of Kalenji SD (short distance) running shoes came home with me and I loved them. No blisters, good support, very lightweight and as a bonus: a fun color for my running pictures too. When choosing my second pair, I did a little bit more research on all the technical aspects of the shoes. I learned about pronation, flexibility and ways to tie my shoelaces. I chose these Kalenji Kiprun MD (medium distance) in white, pink, purple and neon green. They have a little bit more cushioning, which I like, even though I still don't run "official" medium distances.
And now… the best part: three of you can win a pair of Kalenji Kiprun shoes! You can choose between SD, MD or LD (small, medium or long distance) and your kind of pronation. Which means women can choose any of the running shoes below:
Men can win any of these:
And because I'm a graphic designer after all, I'll add a set of postcards to the package:
To win a pair of Kalenji Kiprun running shoes (SD, MD, LD for men or women in your size) and a set of postcards:
► Follow me on Instagram (or Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest if you prefer)
► Leave a comment below
The three lucky winners will be announced on September 26th. The giveaway is open for everyone worldwide: I'm happy to ship around the world 🙂 Good luck!
This giveaway is now closed. The 3 winners are: Argone, Ursula and Joyce. They have been contacted and will receive their pair of Kalenji running shoes and postcards shortly! Thanks everyone for playing and the running support!
Kalenji kindly offered 3 pairs of running shoes to 3 of my readers, but all opinions and pictures are my own. Merci Kalenji!

Oh I would love to win this! I've just started running, so this ie really perfect timing :)
Wow, what a cool giveaway, Judith! Of course I am following you everywhere already and now I only have to keep my fingers crossed for such a cool pair of running shoes. I guess I'd be forced to start my own running challenge then:-)
Whoop Whoop! Congratz with your 200 runs! Just one step after another and hope we can celebrate the 300th soon :)
Je suis très heureuse de participer pour une paire moyenne distance (heu je ne sais pas trop à quoi ça correspond, je cours en général 8 à 10 km par séance) je te suis sur instagram avec plaisir !(argone69) ; encore merci pour ce concours !
Congrats, Judith! Only you could make such a beautiful post out of running/shoes! I've been eyeing these shoes through your series :)
Happy 200th run, Judith!I'd like to think I'd look pretty fabulous in one of those neon-colored running puppies, on my laps!
Congratz! Gefeliciteerd! Whoohoo! Proud of you! I love your Instagram photos and they did pop the question in my mind… perhaps some exercise wouldn't be such a bad idea after blogging & baking for the past few years;-) You got me moving Judith;-) I would love to run in style (black & pink would be perfect)! Keep up the great running job and keep posting those great photos! – An
Congrats on your 200th run and that you've made it this far! That is real commitment. I've never heard of this brand of shoes, so I would definitely be curious to try them out!
Congrats on a big milestone! And thanks for the giveaway.
I follow you on Instagram. Cezovski9
Love love love these shoes (anything with pink would do ;-)) ! I am a short track runner and my main focus is clearing my mind. Now being pregnant with twins so I definitely have some catching up to do when they arrive. How can I do that better than with a new fresh pair of awesome shoes?! 💞
WOW!!! It seems like yesterday we were talking about your running in Copenhaguen, and now 200!! Congrats Judith!!

Congrats with your 200th run Judith and Thanks for thinking of me. Would be perfect timing, winning these shoes 2 days before my birthday and the Berlin Marathon (-:
200 runs is something to be PROUD of. Coco and I aren't anywhere close to that but we are running and loving it. Thanks for the inspiration!
Heel graag! Dan begin ik eindelijk eens ;)
Yeah!! Congratulations with your achievement! Many happy runnings and pictures to you ;-)
Since I already follow you for years on instagram, I guess this comment should be satisfactional enough for applying for those give-away shoes? ;-)
Absolutely awesome giveaway. Just wondering if they'll have size 47s :)
I absolutely want to win!!!!! i would love to start running, but I hate my running shoes… beautiful ones would help, but it's so hard to find nice ones here…. snif snif lol

I REALLY have to so more sports!
Goed voorbeeld doet goed volgen! Ik volg je al een tijdje en steeds word ik verrast door weer een mooie foto. Maar niet alleen de mooie foto's inspireren me, ook het rennen. Dat heeft ertoe geleid dat ik sinds juni ook ben gaan rennen. En ondertussen heb al meer dan 50 runs gedaan. Ik ben 67 jaar en hoop nog veel te mogen rennen. Misschien wel op nieuwe Kalenji schoenen ;-))
Oh yeah! Congrats!!! New shoes would be great for when I start running again after the new baby's arrived. Keep the nice photos coming!
Wow, that's a seriously appealing burst of colour. And congratulations on your 200th run! I can total see how the #joelixruns would be an appealing part of the running habit. It's got me thinking; after all, I need all the motivation I can muster!
I aim so proud my husband is running on his 67 age! So I hope I hope to surprise him with new shoes!
And I like the postcards so much!
Thanks for the giveaway!

I would love to win a pair of these shoes! I recently signed up for a 5K, but didn't own any running shoes. Due to my budget, I just picked up what I could find from a discount store. Though the 5K is this coming weekend, I would like to continue running, but would like to continue with a quality pair of shoes!
Maybe If I had to wear real shoes made for running I would ACTUALLY get down the sofa and start moving my butt for good. ヽ(´o｀；
I just have to have to have to get back on track again. I am a bad weather runner so what better timing than now?😉 ofcourse I Will #backontrack because what better reason to start running again than to try your new kicks? Ready for them! 😇 liefs,
Ohh your series has been so inspiring Judith – and the images that followed are equally fab :) I'd love to win a pair of these amazing running shoes, because at the moment I only run if something is chasing me, and I'd like to change that ;-) So fingers XXX and thanks for the opportunity xxx
PS: Follow you pretty much everywhere
