Thanks all for the great entries in the FR610 giveaway. There’s literally over 1,600 great egg related and training stories in there. Everything from stories of kids forgetting to hard boil the eggs before coloring and then hiding them (and then accidentally breaking them) to finding plastic eggs years later when doing yard work. And for those not celebrating Easter, it sounds like virtually everyone was crazy busy with training plans. Makin’ me seem lazy!
If you haven’t had a chance to go check out all the entries (yes, all 1,600+ of them) – definitely go spend some time reading them. It’s almost as addicting as reading I Can Haz Cheezburger. Almost.
Unlike previous giveaways, there were no points awarded for re-tweeting/blogging/Facebooking or skywriting. This lead to a fairly simple selection of winners. I had a total of 1,623 comments (that made it before the midnight cutoff), and then another pile of comments from Active Duty military folks via e-mail that I created a small spreadsheet for. I gave them numbers from 1,624 to 1,640.
With that, I was off to Random.org to pick out a winner! And the lucky person is:
With newly added comment numbering, I’ve dramatically reduced the time to pick a winner by removing the mythical spreadsheet of the past. Now, I merely find the comment number. It’s glorious! Just trust me on this one…pure heaven!
Anyway, the winner is:
Quick update – Sean just e-mailed me to let me know he’s thrilled! As a member of the United States Marine Corps on the All Marine Triathlon Team, I’m sure he’s going to put it to good use!
For those that didn’t win – don’t worry – you can still go out and pick up your very own FR610 and enjoy touching it all day long (What? It’s a touch screen device…keep your mind out of the gutter!).
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 2019 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.
