Tonight (well, last night by time you read this), I was running. It seems like I’m always running. It was cold. Now to think of it, it seems like I’m always running in the cold too.
Though not as cold as many of you have had over the past few days. I’m going to Stockholm on Sunday night for a few days, and I see it’s cold there too. I told my boss I wanted to go somewhere warm next. Instead, he signed me up for something in Ukraine. It says it’s –11*C there right now (12*F). Not warm.
The point being, I was cold on tonight’s run. And that’s all that matters. And because it was cold (for me, and thus probably you), I’m going to give you a reconciliation prize: A Garmin Forerunner 910XT
Well, not all of you. That would be a lot of FR910XT’s to give away. More than I have.
In case your wondering about my reconciliation prize, I ate cookies. Chocolate chip in case you were wondering.
This time to enter the giveaway:
Just drop me a quick line or two about your coldest run. Or, if you’re not a runner, then cycling. Or failing that, swimming. And failing that…well…work with me here, ok? It can even be a blurry cold memory – just like the self-portrait I took tonight…
Some of you said in the survey there wasn’t enough self-portraits these days on the blog. See, gotta be careful on what you ask for.
Entries will be accepted through Sunday night, 11:59PM Eastern time (January 27th, 2013). I’ll be giving away one FR910XT with heart rate strap. Winner will be chosen at random and announced on roughly Tuesday (unless I freeze to death in Sweden first).

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.
