Wednesday, April 25, 2012 New Balance Giveaway Winner!!

Because I'm taking a few days off for the Eugene marathon (where my house will be protected by a 24/7 security alarm, lions that I haven't fed, and several outlets without baby covers) things have been BUSY trying to get everything closed out with work and life.  I've put in a few 12-13 hour days all the while getting in the last few miles.

Probably the most important run of the week was a 7 mile race simulation run.  Simply put, run 7 miles like I was starting out the race. Easy!  The goal was to run 3 or 4 miles at 7:30 pace and then drop it to 7:00 for the last 4.  Well, I basically did that, but just like the rest of the taper, I probably ran it just a BIT too fast.  I started out running 7:15s and ran a handful of 6:50s.  If I could just do that 3 more times, I swear to you that I'd strip naked and do cartwheels down the finishers chute.


Overall, there were 424 entries in the New Balance giveaway***!!  I'm too lazy busy to look, but I'm pretty sure that was a record for most entries! But, just like is the case with Snookie, hundreds entered, but only one will win.

So, without further rambling, the winner is......#144. Yo Momma Runs!  Well, not YOUR Momma, but 4 little someone's Momma.  Here she is celebrating her birthday at probably one of my favorite steakhouses: Texas Roadhouse. Congrats Yo! (Momma?)

If you win one of my contests, I will find the most embarrassing picture of you and post it
You know, uhhh, for your moment in the spotlight!

I want to thank everyone for entering and / New Balance for supplying the shoes.  Yo Momma, shoot me an email TheBoringRunner / Gmail and I'll get you some shoes!!!!

***Side note, the next time I do one of these giveaways, I need to figure out an acronym or something.  I feel a bit like a NASCAR driver trying to spit that out every time.... "Yeah, the New Balance 890s were really humming.  I thought that I threw a rod and blew out my o-ring, but the Body Glide and Zensah socks really did the trick to clean up the mess on the backstretch....."

I look forward to stalking you in Eugene. I'll be the creepy one behind the potted plant. May or may not be breathing heavy.

I kid, I kid.

Or do I?
