Garmin Forerunner 110 Giveaway

I think it’s that time of the month again.

The time to give something away.

Well, ok, giving away stuff could occur anytime of the month – but I’ve got good reason to give stuff away this time of the month.

My little blog continues to grow – thanks to all your amazing comments and links from around the world – and for that I’m really appreciative!  It’s growing so much, that for the first month ever, I crossed the 100,000 page views in a single month mark.  And because of that – the month of June was officially the biggest month evah around these parts!

And guess what?  It’s only going to get more awesome over the summer!  I have nearly 40 posts already planned with great content from a guest post on how to take photos in a triathlon, to a post from The Girl, to how to pace with a power meter.  All incredible stuff.
But…the real point of this post…is the free stuff.  And free stuff you will get!

I’m giving away a brand new, never used Garmin Forerunner 110.  I’m wrapping up my Forerunner 110 In Depth Review, so I figured I’d give away a FR110.  Logical, right?  You get to pick between the men’s or women’s version (or generic w/o HR) – which will be sent straight to your doorstep.  And, it includes the ANT+ heart rate strap as well.

Like my last giveaway, there are no restrictions on where the goods go to – so no matter where in the world you are, I’ll send to you.  In fact, the last giveaway winner went to someone outside the US.
I’m going about this like a random raffle drawing, except that you can get multiple ‘entries’.  Here’s how:

One Entry: Simply place a comment below on this page, that’s it!  No lyrics to create, or poems to make.  No stories to tell, or anything complex.  Only comments on this page count (nope, comments from 2 years ago don’t count).
Two Entries: Three different ways to double up here.  In addition to the comment below, just put a link on your blog (if you have one) to this contest page.  Or the second option is adding your Twitter account as a and retweeting the contest announcement.  By simply spreading the word, ya get an extra entry.  (Note: If you’re already a follower, simply re-tweet and you get credit!).  The final third option for non-Twitter/Blog peeps is to Share this on FaceBook instead. Surely you have FaceBook, right?  There’s a handy button below the post for doing it automagically.
Three Entries: Triple-time baby!  This is easy – just do all three of the above!  Twitter (or FaceBook), Blog/Site, and Comment.  Ya max out at three entries though…no quadruple dipping here!

See, that’s pretty painless, right?

Please let me know in your comment below how many entries you’ve qualified for if more than one, as it’s super-difficult for me to lineup a Twitter account named “AwesomeRunner28” to a blog named “RunnerGuy” to a comment listed from “RunningCowTippers!”, and I certainly want you to get all your entries.  I don’t need to know your account names, just how many entries.  Also, if ya have technical questions/thoughts/comments/diatribes/poems regarding the FR110 specifically, use that post page for those writings.

Now go out and enjoy your (safe) long 4th of July weekend (for those in the US), and for everyone else…hope your weekend is enjoyable as well!

The contest will run until Wednesday July 7th, 2010 at 11:59PM Eastern Time when I’ll close the entry period.  I’ll announce the winner the following day

For those curious on how the giveaways work, here’s the deets.  Thanks all!

  19. DC,

    I was travelling quite a bit myself and keeping your training regime is rather tough. But talking along your bike, that is insane :-)))

    Take care
    YouYou, Montreal

  20. From William,
    This site is makeing me excited about my upcoming half-iron man on sunday in providence. I wish I had a 310xt to run with so I can track all of my data. The data tracking has me most excited as a geek and an athlete. I want a hr monitor, a cadence sensor, and a pedal integrated energy monitor.
    Keep up the great work DC!
