Over the weekend I held a rather unique giveaway where I asked folks to guess how many steps I walked at CES from Sunday till Monday. Closest person was the winner, simple as that! The most accurate answer then got a credit to CleverTraining.com, my most awesome partner in this giveaway.
All in a total of 2,132 of you successfully entered by the closing time (and after I removed a bunch of duplicates). First up though was the exact numbers of steps I took, which was 103,678 steps. I had a bit of a lower day on Monday, mostly because it wasn’t a true tradeshow day and I spent most of my time in a very small area – versus the other days covering far more ground.
From there I had to find the winner. That was…fun. First off was to see if anyone nailed it straight on. Nobody did. Most folks aimed far too high.
Only two people had guesses in the 103,000 range (the exact amount again was 103,678):
103,735 – Nick Y. 103,219 – Fred W. 103,334 – Grzesik
Of course, I would have started to search the 104’s, but it didn’t really matter, as Mr. Nick Young was within 57 steps. That’s pretty darn good!
Congrats Nick, you should probably go buy a lotto ticket too!
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.
