Vote For One Of “Those Guys” And Then VOTE FOR STEVE!

>> Tuesday, November 04, 2008

Once you’ve cast your vote for “Turkey Neck” or “Big Ears,” please take a moment to vote for me. I just found out that someone nominated me for Race Athlete’s “Best Sport Endurance Blog of 2008!” I received an email today saying that I was in the top 10, and voting is open. I had no idea! If you nominated me, please let me know it was you so I can thank you!

You can vote for me here:

Over the next 2 weeks, I’ll be posting a lot of fun photos and stories and doing ALL I CAN to get your vote! So check back often!

Off the top of my head, here’s one of the best reasons I can think of for you to vote for me: Two months ago, I did the run portion (13.1 miles) of a half-Ironman triathlon in a grim reaper outfit...

...and when I was done, I found that I did the entire run with a cat toy in my shoe!

Again, please stop here to vote for me:

My name is Steve in a Speedo, and I approved this message.

You definitely get my vote!

Julianne 12:58 PM, November 04, 2008  

I voted for you Steve!! And looks like you're in the lead so far! ;-)

Unknown 1:57 PM, November 04, 2008  

You have my vote. Looks like you have the early lead also!

Shannon 2:07 PM, November 04, 2008  

Of course I voted for ya!

Spandex King 2:07 PM, November 04, 2008  

You got my vote! You should have won last year. If you lose there is some voter fraud going on! Challenge to the highest court!

TriSupporter 2:18 PM, November 04, 2008  

Glad to see you're not Swiftboating your competitors. The positive campaigning seems to be working.

M*J*C 2:23 PM, November 04, 2008  

Awesome!!! Can't believe that you ran 13.1 miles with that cat toy in your shoe, I get pissy if there's a big piece of lint in there!

richvans 2:27 PM, November 04, 2008  

I'm holding out until closer to the end hoping you'll resort to bribery of some sort - I mean your wife is a pharmacist and my performance does need enhancing!

tfh 2:30 PM, November 04, 2008  

Congratulations! I'm voting for you, but I still can't wait to see how else you're going to entertain us (beyond the usual) for the next few weeks!

Way to pander to the all-important cat-lovers voting bloc!

Whatever happened to Mavericky, Straight-talking Steve who claimed he'd never resort to such base pandering? Who swore he'd always tell us the truth, even if it alienated every single feline-fancier on the planet?

In sum, I'm disillusioned with you, but I just voted for you, anyway. It seemed the mavericky thing to do.

C 3:04 PM, November 04, 2008  

I voted for you, Steve! Good luck.

chia 3:05 PM, November 04, 2008  

I'm so voting for your person. Where's my sticker?

Anonymous,  3:09 PM, November 04, 2008  

I voted for you. Only cause I was afraid that you'd come running after me in that costume.

P.S. So far, you're kicking butt. =)

audgepodge 3:14 PM, November 04, 2008  

Done! And because I mailed in my absentee ballot last week, this is officially my most important vote of the day!

Jess 3:41 PM, November 04, 2008  

So, this email must've been sent at about noon today, huh? Because I read 3 of you that are on that list and you all posted nearly identical posts at about the same time.

But I will say what I said to the two others: I'm partial to all 3 blogs, so I can't vote for the "best" for all 3, right?!

CoachLiz 3:52 PM, November 04, 2008  

You got my vote. And you are in the lead!

Sarah 5:17 PM, November 04, 2008  

I'm sorry - I need some negative ads against the other blogs before I can vote! ha ha - just kidding - I already voted for ya

triguyjt 5:18 PM, November 04, 2008

Trishie 5:20 PM, November 04, 2008  

I gotta say
the cat toy got my attention and thus, my vote.

RunBubbaRun 5:36 PM, November 04, 2008  

Even with the latest bedroom shot. I still voted for you.

Alisa 6:43 PM, November 04, 2008  

I've done my civic duty for the day!

Good Luck!

Collin Kromke 7:26 PM, November 04, 2008  

I'd have voted for you for president, so why not for best blog too.

Anonymous,  7:54 PM, November 04, 2008  

I voted for you too!

Sonia 8:51 PM, November 04, 2008  

I voted for you! That was a pretty rough race LOL

Triteacher 9:56 PM, November 04, 2008  

Are you giving out those little red "I voted" stickers cuz I sure deserve one -- chalk another one up, Steve!

akshaye 10:00 PM, November 04, 2008  

I said this to the others.. with three of my fav bloggers up for election, I had to commit voter fraud and vote thrice!

Michelle 11:07 PM, November 04, 2008

Borsch 11:53 PM, November 04, 2008

Fizzgig 9:09 AM, November 05, 2008  

ohhh more voting! I love it! I'm off to assert my civic duty

Brian 11:33 AM, November 05, 2008  

just voted. you're in the top with 46%

Anonymous,  2:01 PM, November 05, 2008  

Good luck - I voted for you because no matter how gross you sometimes make your blog, there is this thing about it that just pulls me back (although, I did NOT click on the unedited version of the naked bed photo - just in case you were wondering!)

Darcy Franklin 2:20 PM, November 05, 2008  

I voted for you because you put the FUN into triathlon...and that is what it is all about!

B. Kramer 2:55 PM, November 05, 2008  

You're the only one of those blogs I've read. YOu get my vote! Ha!

RooBabs 9:35 AM, November 06, 2008  

I'm totally going to vote for you, but it will have to be from a different computer than at work, because apparently that site is now blocked (our tech department recently went through a Nazi-like genocide and blocked almost every web site known to man... I'm surprised I can still view yours, since the address is "iwannagetphysical")

And I'd totally forgotten about the cat toy- ha ha. That's awesome.

Totters 9:50 AM, November 06, 2008  

I just voted for're crushin' it!

KodaFit 11:41 AM, November 06, 2008  

You've got my vote too, although after the one of your more recent posts with you laying on the bed, I'm getting nervous about reading your posts at work... Just another reason to try and sneak out the office early and get home quick I guess!

Post a Comment

Thanks for your comments! Have a great day!
