Timex Marathon GPS Giveaway!

IMG_7098

With less than a week left in May, spring is flying by!  I’ve been trying to plan out weekends for the next two months, coveting a way to spend each weekend day, usually in the great outdoors.  And often based around training or racing schedules.

Tonight ended up being a perfect BBQ night after a nearly 2hr brick with hill repeats, and thus hopefully the start of many more warm spring hill & BBQ nights.  So with no more complex reason than that, I’m giving away a Timex Marathon GPS unit.

IMG_6637

The best thing though is you’ve got nothing more to do than leave a single comment below (multiple comments don’t count around these parts!).  Simply answer the question below:

What are your training and/or racing plans for this weekend ahead (Apr 27-29th)?

For those curious, I’ll be doing a 10-mile trail run at Fountainhead on Saturday, and a 40ish mile bike ride on Skyline on Sunday.  Definitely looking forward to both!

The entry period will run until Friday Apr 27th, 2012 at 11:59PM Eastern Time, at which point I’ll close the entry period and randomly select a winner. Like the all my giveaways there are no restrictions on where the goods go to – so no matter where in the world you are, I’ll send to you. The winner will get a brand new Timex Marathon GPS unit.

As I do from time to time (though, it’s been a while), this particular giveaway is sponsored by one of the site sponsors (BeMultisport.com), which is an online sports device retailer based just down the road from me.  They paid for the unit, though I’ll pay for the shipping (which, come to think of it, if you’re in Uzbekistan may actually end costing more than the unit itself…).  As always, supporting site sponsors helps support the site.  Circle of life thing.

(Note: If you’re active duty US military and deployed, simply shoot me an e-mail and I’ll get ya entered in. For those curious on how the giveaways work, here’s the deets. Through careful planning I picked up a handful of them when they first came available…just so I could give them away to you. Thanks all!)

    Had a problem with a knee for the last couple of weeks, so 5k run on Friday. If the knee is ok, 10k on Saturday or Sunday.

  62. Friday and Saturday are supposed to be 5 mile runs, though I might skip Friday’s because we’ll be driving up that day and then turning the heat and water on at our trailer, plus unpacking all the stuff we brought up and dealing with our two very excited children.

    Sunday will be a 20-mile run along Hwy 34/Trail Ridge Road into the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park and back. Good news: I live in Denver so I’m not a flatlander. Bad news: the first runs of the season at altitude still take some adjustment. I’m crossing my fingers about the 20-miler!

  120. This weekend I am scrambling to find a sitter for my kiddos since I over looked a trail 10 miler that I always run. In fact I have held the Female Master’s record since the race started. I would really not like missing it but with no sitter (yet) and a soccer game that starts soon after my race would finish, this may be the year I DNS. Fingers crossed that isn’t the case but….

    Since I am looking at a 100 miler on the 12-13 of May, I won’t cry to much about not racing. I’ll just run my training miles and keep the legs fresh and hungry for a race. If I can’t bribe a friend or family to help out with the kids.

  121. I will ‘partecipate’ (impossible to win!) to the “Coppa Friuli” competition in Italy. It’s the 5th race on 9 and go just 8Km

    But I do plan to continue with the training.

    I will run 3 miles in the morning, and 3 miles in the evening. That’s what I’ve been doing.

    There are no races in sight because where I’m at (Lahore, Pakistan), there are no races. Period. There was a Marathon in March, an event arranged after about 6 years perhaps. I just showed up. Ended up completing it. Hence, was hooked.

    I as of now, have no equipment. I remember going through 11 sports shop and still couldn’t find cycling shorts! The Garmin dealership here only sells GPS devices to be used by telecom engineers.

    Heck, still have to find a place to buy a decent cycling helmet. Have to ‘source’ all these things from abroad. Somehow. Where there’s a will, there’s a way, right?

    Have decided on the Garmin multisport 310, after reading your review (that’s how I came to your site).

    But, my plans are larger than anything I’ve ever thought possible. Although this will sound like a joke if there eve was one, I am planning for a half Ironman. Sorry, I said ‘planning’. I meant ‘training’.

    I don’t know anyone who has ever run a triathlon. Nothing comes up when I search for triathletes here.

    Been contemplating this for over a year. Now I know it’s not a ‘fad’ or a phase. I ‘am’ hooked. :/

    A dual challenge if there was one: train for an event that I am totally ‘uncomfortable’ with. And earn enough to actually afford it. And they said golf is expensive.

    What’s a former 71 yr old ultra guy with a hip replacement to do? Well much to my wife’s dismay, I started walking marathons! Now my only goal is the cut off time. You can actually cruise along pretty nicely at a 10-11 min pace. Next yr, I might try the Ice Age Trail 50 mi run; did the 1st 5 of them ages ago.
