Congrats to Steve W who won last week’s GIVEAWAY THURSDAY for a KBVCM running jacket! Thanks to everyone who shared their mileage-tracking methodologies. I was totally surprised by the variety of your responses and look forward to investigating some apps and websites I didn’t know existed. For now though, I’ll leave the Garmin wearing to my running partners.
It’s barely still Thursday, so in the interest of time, we’re keeping this post short.
Hopefully you saw the exciting news: we selected 5 finalists for our 2013 Rookie contest! This is an awesome crew and I’m pretty thankful that although we reserved the right to make the final call, we’re relying on your votes to give us a winner. I really don’t know how I would choose. We’ll begin posting the finalists submissions tomorrow and the voting starts on Wednesday. Please take a minute to wish our finalists luck and then to vote for the one you most want to hear from on a weekly basis through May.
Thanks to our partners at KeyBank, today we’re giving away a $25 Key Possibilities card. Yep, that’s 25-good-as-cash dollars! The Key Possibilities card is essentially a pre-loaded debit card and it is good anywhere MasterCard is accepted, including, of course, the RunVermont Store.
It seems like everyone we know is sick, is getting over being sick or is talking about how they know they’re getting sick. So far, the RVT team has been spared. (We’re chalking that up to the immunities we built last year as a result of a death-like illness that took all but one of us down one-by-one. In May. Yeah, we’re owed a winter for health after that one.)
So tell us: Do you run when you’re sick? What’s your rule about how miserable you have to feel not to run?
