End of summer Garmin FR610 Giveaway Results!

Thanks all for the great entries in the FR610 giveaway!  If you haven’t had a chance to go check out all the entries (yes, all 1,300+ of them) – definitely go spend some time reading them.  It’s so cool to read through what everyone has been up to. From 5K’s to races and training efforts exponentially larger. Really cool.

“Finishing the Mountains of Misery on Memorial Day weekend with my kids running alongside me as I finished the final climb!”

“Five guys burgers and fries after a half century in 98 degree weather. My pace was slow, but, my burger was gooood :-)”

“A 100km bike ride with a friend last Saturday, from Nantes (France) to the sea. Beautiful weather, beautiful beaches…just nice!”

“This summer I made my first AG podium (2nd place). It was a very small local race, but a podium nonetheless.”

“This summer we ran our first run as a family, complete with wife, daughter and mother in law. My daughter also ran a kiddie dash…there is a video on YouTube of her race if you want to check it out. It was a wonderful experience to run as a family and it wont be out last. Thank you!” (Note from Ray – hilariously cute!)

“My best memory hasn’t happened yet. It’s been waiting for Ironman Wales on September 11th.”

Thanks all for sharing your summer racing and training stories (and those yet to come)!

Unlike some previous giveaways, there were no points awarded for re-tweeting/blogging/Facebooking or crop circling.  This lead to a fairly simple selection of winners. I had a total of 1,319 comments (that made it before the Sunday 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 1,319 to 1,326.

With that, I was off to Random.org to pick out a winner!  And the lucky person is #1040:


Which, translates to the winner being:


Huge Congrats Rick – for both winning, and passing the military PT test!  Shoot me an e-mail and I’ll get it shipped out to you ASAP.

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!).

And if you utilize the link below, you help to support the blog and thus more giveaways like this.  It’s sorta like recycling: Utilize linkage > More Giveaways > More good stuffs for you.

Enjoy your week ahead everyone – and especially for those in the US after the holiday, just keep remembering that it’s only 4 days left…so Friday will thankfully come soon!
