Hopefully everyone had a great weekend, and great (or green) St. Patrick’s day yesterday! Since Friday when the giveaway opened, you’ve all been quite busy getting your giveaway on.
All in, a record breaking 4,656 of you entered in the giveaway (after I removed a bunch of duplicates). Then there were another 47 US active duty military folks that entered via e-mail. Thus I took the 4,656 comments + the 47 active duty folks and got 4,703 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 John! I believe John is from British Columbia (Canada), but I’m not 100% sure there.
I’ll be sending John 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 compression socks.
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, and free US shipping. Even spring running or cycling gear. And most of all, you support the site in a big way – so I appreciate it!
One of these days…One of these days…
Congratulation for the winner.
If you ever need a “better” random number generator or one that isn’t broken, just let me know. Congrats, John.
I must read your blog too much- as I can name all the watches on your rolling pin- unaided.
Run Trainer 2.0
Congrats John! and thanks for the opportunity Ray!
It is not fair: the guy who runs the least gets the most… And I was about to run Badwater just to be on the safe side… Kidding! 🙂 Congrats to the winner and many thanks to DC Rainmaker and to Clever Training for the nice giveaway.
Wow! I was very surprised to get the email from Ray. I just always assume “somebody else” will win these sorts of things, but this time I’m that somebody else.
Thanks a lot Ray for a great site, and for the prize! This will be going towards a Fenix 2 Performer Bundle.
From a very happy Canadian (and yes, British Columbian too!),
Congratulations John, and thank you Ray for all that you do
Special thanks to Clever Training as well
I was so excited, I forgot to publicly thank Clever Training too, so thank you very much Clever Training!
Buy something cool. Have fun. Then write a review about it and compete with Ray. 🙂
Congratulations, John! Now get out there and run/bike or swim if you must.
A votre santé!
Ray you are to popular now. I was around when there was 1000 of us entering. Now your numbers are crazy. Keep up the good work.
Thanks for the blog and the chance Ray
