New Monthly Themed Facebook Photo Contest
(Say that five times fast!)
Our Weekly Runner Poll is going so well, we thought we’d add a new way to win stuff! Each month, we’ll ask you Lunatics to post photos on our Facebook wall based off a specific theme. We’ll choose 3-5 photos to go in our monthly Full Moon Newsletter, one of which will win our Fan Photo of the Month, winning the pic poster a Luna-related prize.
As we posted on Facebook last week, this month’s theme was Christmas/Winter. At the bottom of this newsletter you can find all of the finalists and the winner of this month’s prize: 2 pairs of toe socks.
Our new theme for January: Wet and Pet! To participate, go to Facebook and post photos of you and man’s best friend (or any other pet you may have) going on a rainy or wintry run. We’ll post the winner in February’s Full Moon Newsletter. The winner will get a prize package that includes a t-shirt, toe socks, and a Luna bracelet!

Luna Heads to Outdoor Retailer Expo
After a successful trip to Austin for The Running Event, we’re ready to show off what’s new at Luna at OR in Salt Lake City later this month. We have a bunch of new and exciting changes coming this spring and Summer, and the Outdoor Retailer Expo marks the start of our 2012 journey.
Stay tuned to next month’s Full Moon Newsletter for some tidbits about what we will have revealed at OR!
BirthdayShoes Reviews the ATS
BirthdayShoes is at it again! After a great review of the LeadCat in November, the minimalist running site tried out a more winter appropriate model: the ATS. Check out their in-depth review, which is based off hundreds of miles of testing on tough terrain.
Barefoot Ted’s been on a roll lately over on his blog, Barefoot Ted’s Adventures. Be sure to check out his latest thoughts on hunting as dance and his response to Christopher McDougall’s latest inspiring article.
Patrick Sweeney Snags 1st at Operation Jack 1/2 Marathon
Sporting his trusty Original Lunas, Luna runner extraordinaire Patrick Sweeney rocked Manhattan Beach and earned a win. Way to go Pat! If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Patrick’s always entertaining blog, Bourbon Feet, where he has more on the Operation Jack 1/2 marathon, other races, and more.
This Weekend Only: Free International Shipping
We want to show our appreciation to our oversees Luna-tics who have to wait an extra few weeks and spend a few extra bucks to get their sandals. While we can’t do much about the wait, we can lower the cost a bit by offering free shipping for international customers through Sunday January 8th!
If you live outside the U.S., simply place an order on any Luna product and your sandals will arrive free of shipping charges.
