Thanks to everyone that qualified and entered in the Boston Marathon Entry Giveaway. It was pretty cool to read all of the stories in there! I know there’s a lot of deserving folks out there, including ones like this:
Or ones like this:
But unfortunately, I can only choose one winner – otherwise, I’d just choose everyone!
After I copied over all the comments to Excel and removed the handful of non-entry comments in the post, I was left with the official entrants. I also filtered out the folks that qualified after Boston sold out per the requirements (but, I’ll give ya credit for trying!). The key item here was getting folks into Boston where their entry wouldn’t work for next year. From there it was off to Random.org to pick the winner.
It turned out it was #12 on my sheet – which is Nick:
And thanks again to Salonpas for sponsoring this free entry, it’s pretty cool that they’re willing to just let me pick anyone I’d like and give it away to y’all. Nick – give me a shout out via e-mail (on the sidebar). Thanks!
And thanks for reading everyone!
[Super-duper important update!!!!!] I just got an e-mail from the awesome folks at Salonpas and they loved the stories so much that they’re letting me choose another winner to join Nick. This time, I’m just going to pick one based on the short stories written above.
Based on that, I’m choosing Hilary to join Nick. In part because of her story, because also because she qualified at Philly – which is where I qualified…and where I’ll be heading back to again this year for another run at a marathon PR. So congrats Hilary – please contact me asap!

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!
