Every morning in Africa a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're a lion or a gazelle-when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.

Guest Post: Athletic Shirt Giveaway and Review

Trudy Zufelt, a fellow Utah blogger, recently had the opportunity to tour the factory of a local athletic apparel company. Check out her blog Made in the U.S.A.  to find more USA made products, great reviews and awesome giveaways.

For this post, I teamed up with her to give away 5 of these awesome athletic shirts. The post below is her review of the product. Enjoy the read and good luck winning a new running shirt! (You can never have too many).

                             There's nothing better than getting your Game Gear on and getting ready to run.

I know, I don't look like a runner, but I do like to take a break from the gym or from cycling and run at least twice a week. Cross training works best for me. That way, I don't get bored easily. I got the chance to try the Game Gear Women's Performance Tech Slash Short Sleeve Shirt from Game Gear and I absolutely loved it.

The performance athletic shirt is made with high tech moisture wicking fabric that not only keeps moisture away from your skin, it has antimicrobial qualities too which helps keep odors away. Yeah, lucky me. I didn't have to smell myself sweat during my run. Even when it's cold outside, I sweat and I really didn't smell myself. The shirt was amazing for keeping me feeling dry and warm. I love the form fit. The fit around my arms was perfect. Not too tight and not too loose. I have a tendency to chafe under my arms when I run. This shirt kept my arms from rubbing and chafing. Though I tried the shirt on a cooler day, I look forward to wearing it when it when it's hot as well. The lightweight fabric will be perfect for warmer weather.

I've always been a fan of moisture wicking shirts when I exercise, but I like the Game Gear shirt better than usual. It is well made and I especially liked the fit. At $19.99 with free shipping in the U.S.A., you can't beat the price. I often hear U.S.A. made apparel is too expensive. This is not true with Game Gear. In case you missed my online factory tour at the Game Gear manufacturing facility, you may not know that Game Gear makes athletic clothing in the U.S. in the state of Utah. They strive to keep their prices competitive, while at the same time provide great customer service. I purchase athletic clothing on a regular basis and I am thrilled to find such great prices on well made clothing.

My husband had to opportunity to try the Game Gear Men's Performance Tech Slash Short Sleeve Shirt. Like me, he also loved the moisture wicking fabric and the comfort of the shirt.

We're giving Game Gear's shirt two BIG thumbs up.

We'll be running off now, but not before I tell you that Game Gear has generously offered to give not one, but 5 of my lucky readers a Performance Tech Slash Short Sleeve Shirt in the size and color of your choice. All I can say, is who wouldn't want this shirt? You don't have to be a runner. It is a great, every day shirt that looks good as well.

Game Gear sells everything from individual athletic apparel for a variety of sports to athletic team uniforms. They outfit high schools across the country. Their items can be screen printed with your team and/or logo. You can visit them on Twitter, Facebook or on You Tube as well as their internet site.
