Juneathon Day 9 – A Magic Bracelet (and you could have one too)

A few months ago, I sensed Cassie needed some motivation to get back into running, so I made her a bracelet.

Then I realised that I needed some motivation as well, so I made myself a bracelet. My one embraced my inner goth.

Skull bracelet

It also matches my Fitbit (sorry for fuzzy photo – trying to take a photo one-handed with your non-dominant hand isn’t easy).

Run bracelet

And, I’ll tell you what – this bracelet is made of magic because I wore it for the first time today as I was going for a run and I ran 5 miles without stopping, WAHOO. I even did sub-12 m/m which, yes, is horrifically slow, but I don’t care. I DID 5 MILES WITHOUT STOPPING AND IT’S ALL THANKS TO MY MAGIC BRACELET.


Giveaway – Win A Magic Bracelet! 

As I came back from my run endorphined-up on a runner’s high, I’ve decided to share the magic and give away two bracelets (purely because I have two ‘run’ beads left). You have the choice of a skull one like mine (although I haven’t got many pink or purple ones left but I have green, red, blue and yellow skull beads so you can choose a combination of those), or you can have a black and red one like the one at the beginning of this post (or you can have black and pink, or pink and red, as I have pink beads). Or you can have a pot-luck one and leave me to decide what to make from my collection of beads.

Just leave a comment below telling me what magic power you would like to have and I’ll pick two at random after the closing date of Tuesday 30 June 2015.

UK entries only, sorry (unless you want to pay the postage).


Distance: 5.1 muthafucking miles, baby
Time: 1:01:28
Pace: 11:57 m/m



  • Hmmm you need a masculine version here too or us guys will feel left out!! Lol. My magic power would have to be rejuvenation so no matter what gets thrown at me or how I get hurt, I heal instantly and carry on!! What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. (Apart from bears obviously, bears will kill you)

  • Love your skull bracelet – if I could have a majic power I’d have an energy (turbo) boost power! Just when I needed I’d twiddle the run charm and wooosh away I’d run

  • My magic power of choice would be the power of Super-veganism! With a mighty swoosh I’d turn the whole world green and eco-friendly, and all animals and people are valued as equally important. Sigh. Now back to the real world :/

  • hmmm…magical powers…
    wow…there are so many!!
    I would like to be able to teleport…
    also superstrength
    and telekinesis…

    ok…just one…

    I would like to be able to teleport please 🙂

    and a bracelet 🙂 which are really pretty by the way!

  • I would love to have the power to banish people who abuse animals or other people to an island where they can never escape from. And they have to fend for themselves every day for the rest of their lives

  • My magic power would be to make the day sunny instead of cloudy (for the whole of UK & Ireland). Mainly because I am typing this in Kent in June and it is grey and FREEZING. My power would make me and a lot of other people happy.

  • I can vouch for the absolute magicness of the magic.

    (this is not a competition entry…)

  • Well, if I could have the same magic as you and complete 5 miles at a similar pace I would be ecstatic. I like ‘blokey’ bracelets as well ‘cos I’m not really a pinky/purple girl although anything that delivers would be fab and I suppose pink/purple would co ordinate with my saucony laces which you nearly kept. 😉

  • Magic running bracelets sound great.

    I’ve pretty much wanted to talk to animals since I was a kid. That or shape-shifting would be cool

  • Instant self confidence would be great. Or the ability to fly. Tough choice.

  • If I could do magic I would like to be able to magic a few extra hours into everyday
