Thanks for finding the Valentines Giveaway page! As I said in the Newsletter, this is a giveaway just for you, Newsletter Readers! Ray won’t be sharing this on Twitter or any other various forms of social media.
I’m sure you’re impatiently awaiting “WHAT IS THE PRIZE??”
The winner will get a $500USD credit to CleverTraining.com, our most excellent partner in this giveaway crime. By supporting the site through Clever Training you also can save 10% on basically anything they sell (or get points instead). If you win, you can use that credit for anything. Seriously. Well anything on their site.
How to enter:
Simply leave a comment below. Preferably an idea to peer pressure Ray into doing something romantic for his one and only this Valentine’s season. Otherwise, do be sure to leave some sort of comment more than just a word, as that sometimes leads to your comment getting stuck in SPAM. And no matter how much the Hawaiians try to sell it to you, there ain’t nothin’ good about SPAM.
That’s it. Go forth and good luck!
The giveaway entry period will run through Thursday, February 14th, 2019 until 11:59PM US Eastern Time. Winner will be selected randomly. One entry per person.
Le sport c’est comme DC R, intéressant et sans fin 🙂
Happy valentines day!
Tell Ray to take you on a picnic up on table mountain so you can see the sun set from there. Gorgeous!
Love means getting off the trainer before things go numb.
Do they even celebrate Valentine’s Day in South Africa?
Get your cupid on! Nothing better than starting ‘the’ morning in a little red speedo and an apron for preparing a stack of heart shaped flapjacks doused in fresh fruit and CANADIAN! maple syrup for the whole family. Little notes of love and appreciation sprinkled throughout the house to be discovered throughout the day
Love the blog!
Run to up to a lookout point and watch the sunset together! Bringing food and beverage = Optional. (Thanks again for all the reviews, your hard work helps me feel confident in all the gear I use)
Two words: Hot Tub
Love it the use of bribing the public to ensure ray makes a romantic gesture…
Enjoy the sun guys
love the reviews
you know what you gotta do ray
Peer pressuring Ray: seems like the best thing to do is to take away his phone and laptop so he gives you his undivided attention for an evening. I think his time is his most valuable commodity and if you have that then you are set up for a romantic evening. Wine, cheese, sunset!
Why Ray does need our help? He must have found a gadget for that!
Happy Valentines Day To All
Card with a nice note in it from him and handprints or markings from the kiddos, and a date night or gift card for a massage
Surprise trip to some place warm.
Do something really sweet, low-tech for Valentine’s Day. Just the two of you–farm out the kiddos. Love both parts of the newsletter, top and bottom, thanks!
Keep up the great work on the newsletters. I love reading them. Here’s hoping Ray treats you well every day of the year not just the 14th of February!
How’s the chocolate selection in South Africa?
Thanks for the funny weekly newsletter.
Ray, I hope you bought tons of chocolate for The Girl and The Peanuts.
I’d recommend Ray spring for a day trip to a spa (for two)! Definitely a favourite in our household.
Happy V Day!!
How about Ray give you a call sometime when he’s jetting about just to say hi and that he’s thinking of you…?
Roses are red and violets are blue…
Get the %^&*-ing pizza oven chores done already, Ray!
Put the tech away n be romantic for a day^^
Valentine’s Day, aka “damned if you do, damned if you don’t” Day.
Quality time spent with you significant other is more valuable than romantic gifts. Find a way to ditch the kids and find a special run in S.A. (or hike, etc…)
You could go see the mass wedding on Robben Island. Or just stay in and enjoy the wine lest after your get away.
Enjoy the day wit a bottle of wine and some cupcakes ?
Go groading together
Roses are red. Violets are blue. Why have just one bike when you can have two?
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Absolutely Ray should be taking the Girl out out for a nice romantic evening.
Tandem Ride! Bicycle made for two. No one gets lost.
Two words: pizza oven. All the peer pressure and motivation that should be needed.
Hi, You can’t go wrong with Red Roses and dinner at at fancy restaurant. Happy Valentines!
Hey, why not skiing somewhere in Alps in a spa hotel…
You two, wait…four, no, it’s five I think! have a happy Valentine’s day
Getting up at stupid o’clock and not even seeing my wife on Valentine’s Day till very late tonight means I’d rather just spend some quality time together, I hope you guys manage to get quiet time together.
Please peak me. He can do your to do list for a day 😉
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Have a nice day!
Happy Valentines Day! A trail run together through Jonkershoek, Newlands Forest or Constantia Green Belt
what about a no tracker, no smartwatch, no phone, no whatever weekend – also no kids for this weekend, if you have someone to take care of them
Thank you for the newsletter, it’s one I actually read every week!
Loving the day and your blog
Let’s give it a try… Happy Valentine’s day
I think Ray should give five number of “coupons” to The Girl.
These coupons would give her for example a day off to do what ever she feels like, go to a spa or just simply be attended to by Ray.
Happy Valentines day!!
Happy valentine’s day!
Ray better pony up and do something special for you Bobby!!
A lovely run together through Vondelpark…

Would love this!!

If I had an idea I’d do it for my wife. Hoping to work less and be home for dinner.
Thank you for all your work!
Thanks for the contest, and love the newsletter.
Hey, thanks for the great reviews and I love reading about the Peanuts growing and seeing the family stuff. Glad “The Girl” got more involved, the newsletter is very helpful to keep me up to date.
Gift for today to be thoughtful the rest of the year 🙂
Chocolate is great after the training in Valentine’s day
Best gift for Valentine? Aorta. It comes from the heart…
Happy Heart Day!
You cray, SPAM musubi is great, haha. Or add it in some breakfast burritos. Yum yum. 🙂
BEST. SITE. EVER. (and Ray, you’re a lucky man to have a wife so supportive of your “techiness”…my wife can’t stand it!)
The newsletter is one of my favorite emails to get and peruse! Congrats on your top 5 8k finish!!
Pizza oven or maybe chocolate ? ?
My wife and I buy 2 packages of Milano cookies. We eat then after the kids go to sleep and then watch a movie. We’ve been doing this for at least 5 years, and it works.
Cook her a nice dinner!
So my most romantic moment so far was getting some candy hearts at the supermarket and gave them to my girl.. So yeah, I should come up with something better this evening 🙂
Love the newsletter!
Happy Valentine’s day.
Newsletter giveaway, awesome!
Go with the traditional flowers and chocolates

Thanks for the newsletter! Hope you guys have a wonderful Valentine’s Day, no matter what Ray decides to do.
Yes! Now I can work off the girlscout cookies I got for Valentine’s Day
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Fresh baked pizza in the backyard pizza oven…wait a minute
Bike ride to the quiet countryside. Picnic in nature.
Hi, love the newletter!!
Roses and chocolate… never go wrong.
I am all out of good Valentines’ ideas…
Hello. I think it would be great if Ray would get the Girl some flowers and take her out to dinner. Then on Friday, he can take the peanuts for the entire day so the Girl can have some alone time to sleep or do what ever else she would like to do with some peanut free time.
Sounds like spa or massage treatment is needed for those weary legs!
There sure must be a great wine tour nearby.
Happy Valentine’s Day and thanks for the newsletter
Love your newsletters and always check the reviews before I buy anything!
Ray, take it from a 68 yr. old 35 year marriage veteran. Just because you’ve whisked your wife (and Peanuts) off to an exotic locale, don’t think your done for Valentines day.
What to do? -I have no idea.
In the heretofore mentioned 35 years, my experience says, -“It’s never enough!!” Besides, based upon my observation of all your great internet communications, you’re more creative than I am. JUST DO SOMETHING, MY MAN, or you may regret it.
Here, I’ll tell you what, just take the $20 that I’m paying to support DCR and get her some roses. However, you should be able to come up with something better. Money should be not object in a situation like this.

Long time reader, irregular commenter….

Hi. Love the newsletter humor, thanks 😉
As for valentine, I’ll be reading the comments for ideas 🙂
Happy ♥️ day!
Nothing is as special as a dozen red roses and a box of chocolates go get her tiger?
Don’t fall for the hype! Be good to each other every day and life will be great!
Happy Valentine’s Day all!
