Spinning with Dara Torres {giveaway!!}

You guys, I have the best local giveaway for you all today!

Koss (Milwaukee based headphone maker) has just launched a pair of headphones made just for women. They are co-designed by US Olympian Dara Torres. They come in two styles and five colors.

Cute, right?

Well, they did a launch release party in Milwaukee back in May. Tina from Carrots ‘n’ Cake attended that event and blogged about it here.

And now, they are coming to Minnesota!! They are doing a similar event, where there will be a spin class (with Dara!!) where you get to check out the Koss Fit Series headphones. And then after class, you get to meet Dara! OMG – how sweet is that??

The giveaway details. . .

Each attendee in the class will receive:

·      – 60 minute spin class taught by local instructors

·       – A pair of Koss Fit Series headphones to use during the event and a pair to take home to hopefully review and share your feedback on your blog

·      – A gift bag from Koss.

·       – The opportunity to meet and workout with Dara Torres, a five time Olympian and 12-time medalist

  2. I can’t win the giveaway, but I’ve been wanting to buy a pair of those headphones….have you tried them?

  3. This is so cool, she is such an inspiration! I would probably ask her what strength training moves she thinks are the most important to improve her swimming skills!

  4. I would ask her about what her favorite non-swimming workout is, or what part of training gets her down and how does she overcome it? (Please let me win!!)

  5. Wow what a cool giveaway. Dara is so inspirational. I swam all through jr high and high school. I recently started swimming again and I’ve noticed it’s really helped my running. I would probably ask her about strength training. It would be fun to take a spin class!! I haven’t done that in forever.

    Fun giveaway! I tried to think of a less common question to ask Dara, and this is what I came up with: “Where do you keep your medals?” Are they out in the open? Stored in a safe place? ” On NPR’s “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me”, Jackie Joyner-Kersee was asked this question, and she gave an interesting response. She said that her medals were not out in the open because while they were a great achievement, they reminded her of the crazy long workouts 365 days a year, and she didn’t like to always be reminded of that.

    I would love to ask her about what motivates her to keep pushing herself to a level beyond what most people think is not possible and how she finds her balance with her family, training and all her other endeavors. For one last question I’d like to know how she feels about being such a positive and influential role model for women, girls and I suppose some guys 😉 I would love to win this fantastic opportunity to hang out with such an outstanding role model who gives it everything she’s got.

  8. Kelly Gentz

    I’d ask what her average day looks like! What a fun opportunity!

  9. I’m attending this event, too! Yay! 🙂
    I don’t need to be entered into the giveaway then, of course, but which event are you going to? I’ll be there on the 18th.
