This past weekend was the ‘Because it’s Cold’ Giveaway, where I tried to light a tiny bit of warmth in your heart…especially if you’ve been training in the cold lately.
All in, some 2,387 of you entered in the contest (after I removed about 90 duplicates). Then there were another 13 US active duty military folks that entered via e-mail. Finally, there were 146 of you that made the ‘mistake’ of checking the box to subscribe/receive e-mail notifications for each entry. For those, I’m sure your respective e-mail inboxes got a workout as well this weekend.
In any event, I took the 2,387 comments + the 13 active duty folks and got exactly 2,400 people.
From there, it was off to my favorite Random.org to find a winner:
Taking that number back to the comments, I found this:
Congrats Dan! And, there’s a tinge of relief to see that the winner of the ‘Because it’s cold’ giveaway wasn’t from a tropical locale. Cause, I’d probably have a riot on my hands. Albeit, a bunch of rioters with frozen hands and fingers. But still, a riot nonetheless.
I’ll be sending Dan an e-mail here in a minute so he can pick out his gadget of choice. As you remember, he got a $400 credit to buy any device of his choice at Clever Training. Or, I suppose he could have just bought one really expensive pair of winter gloves.
Finally, a huge thanks to Clever Training who sponsored all the goods, which I’ve got a great partnership with. As you probably remember, by picking up sports technology gadgets from Clever Training you support the site. And on top of that, all DC Rainmaker readers get an exclusive 10% off all products they sell (basically every sports tech company/gadget/device) using coupon code DCR10BTF. Even cold weather gear. And most of all, you support the site in a big way – so I appreciate it!
Congrats to Dan 🙂 you should go for the 400 $ gloves
I will buy a garmin 810 for 275 bucks DAN! Cash Money!
Merde! I lost again! However, +1 on the recommendation for $400 of gloves.
Congrats Dan! And many thanks to: Clever Training for sponsoring the giveaway; and for DCR hosting the giveaway!!
That RNG is clearly rigged!
I need to work on a partnership with random.org 🙂
Congrats Dan! and once again thanks Ray for making this site pure awesome!

Congratz to Dan ! Always great to get an email that you’ve won something nice 😀
Hot Diggity Dog! Thanks to Ray and Clever Training for such a great prize! Thanks to everyone for the kudos! Now I have one less excuse not to be out training!
Hey Dan! Big Congrats!! Just curiosity…I wonder what will you order?
Thanks DCR and CT for the giveaway, I wish I were a lucky guy!
Congrats Dan, I hope they let you use the 10% code with the $400 for a super training gear bonus! 🙂 I also am interested in what you decide to get, please post back.
Congrats Dan and thanks to Ray for the competition!
Congratulations, Dan! Thanks, Ray for having the contest.
Wait, so you just pick them randomly?!? Why bother then? I actually thought I had a winner with my New Years eve swim in 40 degree water. 🙁
Because then everyone could claim to be in 39* water instead. 😉

Why do I always miss your contests ?
Hey, this is discrimination to us in the tropics! We demand equal opportunity!
So when’s the next contest Ray?
I think Steve in a Speedo has you beat on the random number thingy
