#Run_Happy Friday Tweet Winners 05/08/09

Thanks to everyone who entered our impromptu #Run_Happy® contest on Twitter yesterday. We asked runners to tell us “What Makes You Run Happy®?” The prize? A limited-edition Run Happy® Mesh Cap to the top four entries—as deemed by our panel of judges. As you will see, it was tough to pick just four. Congratulations to all of the winners! Each is definitely worth following on Twitter, as are we: @brooksrunning.
