Huge Sugoi and Gu Giveaway!

>> Monday, December 14, 2009

If you’ve been following my blog for a few months, you know that I love my Sugoi Velocity Tri Suit. I first wore it at the Apple Duathlon early this past summer:



And I wore it for every triathlon this summer: Liberty Oly, Chisago Lakes Sprint, and St. Croix Valley Oly. I even wore it at those 2 little “Splash and Dash” events that I did.


At the Liberty Oly and the Chisago Lakes Sprint

So I obviously love their stuff. The good people at Sugoi and Outside PR want me to help giveaway some of their products. Here’s what you all have a chance to win:

• Sugoi Velocity Tri Suit. That’s a $225 value! If you win, you’ll get to pick your size and Sugoi will ship it right to you! Here’s a men’s and a women’s Sugoi Tri Suit:


(men's in red, women's in black)

• Sugoi Velocity Tri Tank and Tri Short. That’s a $220 value! ($100 for the tank, $120 for the shorts.) Again, if you win, you’ll get to pick your size and Sugoi will ship it right to you! Here’s a men’s and a women’s Sugoi Tri Tank and Tri Short:


(men's in gunmetal, women's in black)



Well, the people at Gu wanted “in” as well. So they have some stuff to add to this giveaway.

• Two 6-Count Boxes of Gu Roctane. (A $30 value.) Gu will send you 2 boxes of their new Pineapple Roctane. I’ve been using Roctane during my triathlons this year, and it’s good stuff! It’s more expensive than regular Gu, but that’s because it’s LOADED with more good things for your body. (Click here for more info on Roctane.)



• Two 6-Count Boxes of Vanilla Gingerbread Gu. (A $16 value.) Tis the season for Vanilla Gingerbread Gu...



• Two 6-Cout Boxes of Mint Chocolate Gu. (A $16 value.)



The best funniest endorsement for Mint Chocolate Gu came from the Gu PR person that I work with. She told me the following in an e-mail (and never suspected I’d share it with the world):

Seriously, when I have a chocolate craving (um, everyday) I go for the mint choc GU. Seriously, it’s better than Hersheys. I have yet to use one on a run. I just eat them. I'm gross, I know.

Gross? No. Hilarious? Yes.

HERE’S HOW TO ENTER TO WIN:

You can enter by simply commenting on this post, but you can earn MORE entries to better your chances. (Much like the giveaway 2 weeks ago where 3 readers won signed copies of “Trizophrenia” from Jef Mallett.) If you follow my Twitter feed or become a member of the “Steve in a Speedo” fan page on Facebook, you can earn an extra entry. If you do BOTH, you can earn 2 extra entries and really better your chances at winning some sweet swag!

Follow these steps:

1. (Optional) Follow steveinaspeedo on Twitter and/or become a member of the “Steve in a Speedo” fan page on Facebook.

2. Comment on this post, and note if you earned extra entries so I make sure to add your name 2 or 3 times. You do NOT need to be a blogger, but make sure to leave some specific info so you’ll know if you won. (So you could say something like this: “Hey Steve, this John Smith from Topeka. I joined your Facebook group, but I didn’t follow you on twitter, so put my name in the hat twice! Thanks!”)

3. Check back next Monday, Dec 21st, to see if you’ve won! ESPECIALLY if you’re not a blogger, because I have no way of contacting you!

Important Note: Commenting on this post will put you in the running for the Tri Suit, the Tri Tank and Tri Shorts (being “won” as a pair), and the Vanilla Gingerbread Gu. The Roctane will go to a random member of the “Steve in a Speedo” fan page on Facebook, and the Mint Chocolate Gu will go to a random follower of steveinaspeedo on Twitter. So by earning multiple entries, not only will you have a better chance at winning one of the “big ticket” items, but you’ll also have a chance at winning some more Roctane and Gu. Think about it. It’s a sweet deal. There’s no arguing with free tri stuff!

Pseudo-legal stuff:
- Contest only open to US residents. UPDATE: The PR company said that they'll ship to the US and Canada!! You northerners can rejoice! And enter!
- You may comment now (on THIS post) through midnight Central time on Saturday, Dec 19th. The winner will be contacted on Monday of next week.
- The winner will be chosen at random by a random number generator or by drawing numbers out of a hat. If you’ve earned multiple entries, you will get multiple numbers, thus bettering your chances at winning.
- Check back this Monday (Dec 19th) to see if you won! (Especially if you don’t have a blogger account because I have no way of contacting you.)


One final big THANKS to the people at Gu, Sugoi, and Outside PR for being so generous! Thanks guys!

I'm a facebook fan too so enter me twice! Thanks Steve! Also, I think telling the world your wife waxes her own bikini area is hot. And kind of scary. I'm impressed with Pharmie because I've tried to do it myself and it is NOT fun. :)

US residents only?!?!? Isn't it bad enough that Canadians are taxed more have a diminished dollar? And now this?!? I think it may be time to change citizenship....

A tri suit would be killer too. Then I could race in something other than my flannel 'jammies. :(

Hey, Steve, it's Carla from Central IL. I did my first triathlon last year and have enjoyed reading your blog...as well as Pharmie's. I use Google Reader so I don't miss a thing. I also just joined your group on FB. Just keep updating. I'm enjoying it all very much...except the pictures of your toes. Ewww.

TxTriSkatemom 11:13 AM, December 14, 2009  

just found and framed my finisher photos from my first tri in 2007 as motivation - must get back on the Tri horse. Sweet Sugoi gear would sure make me feel like a triathlete and perhaps distract from my flailing swim form. probably not...

following on FB and Twitter, too!

the gazelle 11:13 AM, December 14, 2009  

I was already a fan of your FB group but now I also follow you on twitter! :)

I would love to win! I did my first tri- in 2009 & have three planned for 2010! :)

Liz,  11:16 AM, December 14, 2009  

Hey Steve! This is Liz from California. I read your blog before I did my first triathlon and it has always been a hilarious way to stay motivated. Keep it up!

Tall Girl Running 11:20 AM, December 14, 2009  

I'm not a Twitterer but I am your newest Facebook fan.

Winning a sweet tri suit might actually be the motivation I need to become a triathlete. Don't deny me the motivation, Steve!

Rana Tortuga 11:23 AM, December 14, 2009

Rana Tortuga 11:26 AM, December 14, 2009  

It's Kristine again. I forgot to mention that I'm a FB fan and on Twitter too. Based on your tweets this morning I think you were avoiding going to the pool! While it's between sememsters you should come over to Hopkins on a Tuesday or Thursday at 7:30 AM and swim with Scott Tripps group. I've taken 30 seconds off of my 100 time since working with him & Justin. (OK, so I wasn't that fast to begin with and had lots of room for improvement, but can you really argue with taking 30 seconds off?!?!)

Audrey 11:33 AM, December 14, 2009  

hi! can you enter me in just once. thanks! and if i win the foodstuff you can redraw for someone else (i can't eat that stuff) but i would love a chance to win the apparel. thanks! happy training!

Hi Steve, Danielle Gordanier still in snowy St. Paul (for now). Sure, use my addiction to vanilla Gu to get me to be your Facebook fan. But if I get a tri suit, I'll really have to do one next year.

Steve, with how harsh you normally are on us Canadians I fully expect that you'll be awarding some prizes to us northerners to compensate. I would be quite pleased to be that Canadian. Thnx

I'll toss my name in the hat but you really don't want me to win the 1 piece suit, I might actually be tempted to wear it and that is not a pretty site!

I'm KC in Minneapolis, and I like to win.

kelands 5:19 PM, December 14, 2009  

I'm not actually quite sure why I am looking at your page right now. Somehow by looking at a blog on Chile, I clicked on a link for a food blog, clicked on a link for PastaQueen and stumbled here? Oh my dear god, my internet addiction is out of control. But the good news is that I once upon a time fell in love with triathlons and am really needing the inspiration to start training again. Perhaps this could be the kick in the rear I need.

I have become a fan of you facebook page, so put me in for two. -Kelan from MT.

Christy 5:32 PM, December 14, 2009  

I want to win!! Thanks Steve!
Put me down for TWO entries because I'm now officially a fan of your FB page.
