Send @AmandaTinney to Eat and Run Across Germany and a Giveaway

Amanda Tinney

Did you ever have a dream that you pursued with reckless abandonment? Throwing all rationale out the window and taking a steadfast belief that you could accomplish it no matter how crazy it sounded? Kind of like registering for your first full or half marathon?

Last year I started out on one such journey, to become a full time travel blogger. I registered “” and I’ve been chipping away a that goal ever since.

Recently I stumbled upon a Facebook post…The German National Tourist Office was looking for two blogging Social Media Ambassadors to visit for one week and blog, facebook and instagram their way across Germany. The winning bloggers would need to get enough of their online friends and family to vote for them. And kind of like registering for my first full marathon, I threw all caution to the wind and set my sights on winning that prize…a travel trip of a lifetime…a week eating and running my way across Germany.

You Can Send Me to Germany

As a Disney nerd, longtime passholder, and blogger ( the closest I’ve gotten to experience all that Germany has to offer is sipping Schofferhofer Grapefruit and competing in runDisney races which took me through the Germany Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase.

I’m on a quest to visit a few of Germany’s 13 vineyard regions, sample pub grub in the country’s various taverns and taste and photograph dishes at a few of their 200 ‘star rated’ high-end restaurants. Of course all of this eating will require I do a little bit of running along the way. It will be good training for the 2016 runDisney Dopey Challenge, which I am registered for a third year in a row.

I’m asking you, my fellow foodies and runners to help me get this Dream Job and in exchange I’m offering you the chance to win something too.

I Want to Give You Something

In exchange for your votes I am offering up a unique prize pack. Two runDisney wine glasses and a set of seven runDisney race icon wine charms. These items have never been offered for sale to the public. They were only gifted to members of the media and now it’s time that I gifted them to one of you! (Disney and runDisney are NOT affiliated with this contest in any way)
