Heads up! Massive Sale on Garmin, Suunto, Polar, Trainers and more! There’s two huge sales going on – first is a major Garmin sale, including $100 off new Forerunner 945 and $150 off the Fenix 5 Plus. Along with the Varia Radar, Garmin Edge 130 & 1030, and plenty more.
Plus there’s the big semi-annual 20% off sale, with virtually all major trainers and power meters included. Wahoo KICKR’s, Tacx NEO’s, Elite Direto’s and Suito’s, Saris H3, Kinetic, R1 4iiii Fliiiight, Stages, and many more. Not to mention the GPS units from Garmin, Polar, COROS, Lezyne, Suunto, Apple and others.
Over the last week or so I’ve been testing out the Forerunner 210 GPS running watch, which is brand spankin’ new and just released in time for the Holidays. I’ve been so happy with it to date, that I’ve decided to give one away. And while I don’t have a full In Depth Review put together quite yet, I’m happy to say this watch is just about what the majority of runners out there want.
And since I love the watch, and I love you guys…you get a free watch. 🙂
Like all giveaways to date, there are no restrictions on where the goods go to – so no matter where in the world you are, I’ll send to you (heck, with all my travel as of late, I might just simply drop it at your front door myself!). I’m going about this like a random raffle drawing, except that you can get multiple ‘entries’. Here’s the usual skinny on 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 on a post about pasta 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 follower of DCRAINMAKERBLOG 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 Forerunner 210 specifically, use that post page for those writings.
You probably stumbled upon here looking for a review of a sports gadget. If you’re trying to decide which unit to buy – check out my in-depth reviews section. Some reviews are over 60 pages long when printed out, with hundreds of photos! I aim to leave no stone unturned.
I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”. So here is the most up to date list of products I like and fit the bill for me and my training needs best! DC Rainmaker 2018 swim, bike, run, and general gear list. But wait, are you a female and feel like these things might not apply to you? If that’s the case (but certainly not saying my choices aren’t good for women), and you just want to see a different gear junkies “picks”, check out The Girl’s 2018 Gear Guide too.
