Last June, I won first place in the one-mile Terrapin Events Drag Race! This is the only race I’ve gotten first place in for a very long time, and I got all kinds of prizes for it. One of these prizes was a free entry into any 2011-2012 Terrapin Events Race. Obviously I decided to save it for the most expensive race they have, to get my free money’s worth, and use it to redeem a race entry for the 2012 Run Like Hell Half Marathon.
The sad news is, that my shin splints/maybe-stress-fracture-but-probably-not, is still hurting, and I’m definitely not in shape to run a half marathon. The good news is that I’m going to give my free race entry away to someone who isn’t injured, and who loves getting things for free!
If you would like to enter to win this race entry, you only need to do two relatively easy things:
- Follow my blog! Look at the right side of the page, where my list of members are, and click “Join this site.” This is important, because I only have 40 members right now, and I equate my self-worth with the number of people following my blog. I am less likely to give you a free entry if you’re not boosting my self-worth.
- Leave a comment on this post, and make it a good one. A boring comment will give you one one imaginary raffle ticket, a thoughtful one will give you two, and if I actually LOL (laugh out loud), then you get three.
If you want to win the race entry, and you actually want to do the race, you should consider these things as well:
- The race is in a week and a half, I hope you’ve been training (although you can also use the race entry for the 5k or the 10k).
- Here’s the tricky part: You will need to be able to go to the Sellwood Foot Traffic on Friday to pick up the entry, because I’m going to leave it there with a guy named Jackson (he works there). It has to be Friday, and it has to be before 5:00 PM, because that’s when registration closes. I waited so long to do this because I wanted to do the race for myself, and I assume the winner will enjoy logistical challenges.
This will be a short contest, because of obvious time constraints. I’ll notify the winner tomorrow (Thursday) in the early afternoon. Good luck!
EDIT: Contest is closed, congratulations Season!
