Holy entries, Batman!! There were 370 comments on last weeks post (200 in the first 12 hours!!), and they were all people that wanted to win a 1 piece Sugoi Tri Suit, a 2 piece Sugoi Tri Suit, 2 different kinds of Gu, and some Roctane!
Yesterday, I got to work. I printed out all the comments. It was 50 pages! Then I gave each comment 1 number (or 2 or 3 if they had “earned” extra entries). The numbers went up to 705! Here’s the stack of numbered printouts:
I had a post-it note ready to be filled in with winners:
Next I drew for the Vanilla Gingerbread Gu. Three numbers later, I was looking at Audrey’s comment, so she wins the Gu!
Next, I hopped on Facebook to draw a winner from the “Steve in a Speedo” fan page who would get the Roctane. I LOVE Roctane, and that stuff’s spendy, so this is a great prize! I drew 3 numbers and scrolled through the members to find the winner. It was Phillip:
Next, I went to the followers of the SteveinaSpeedo Twitter feed to draw for a winner of the Mint Chocolate Gu (which was a flavor many people were raving around in their “entry comments” last week). I drew 3 numbers and scrolled to find the winner. It was Lora, AKA BlondeRunner:
So that did it EXCEPT for the 2 piece tri suit:
So, here’s the recap of the big winners:
Jen Rife wins this:
BadgerGirl wins this:
Audrey wins 2 boxes of this:

You 5 winners, please contact me so I can pass your e-mail along to the people at Sugoi and Gu so they can send out your winnings! (stevestenzelphotography [at] yahoo [dot] com)
I have an issue with all of this. I’ve done 4 different giveaways over the last 6 months or so, and 11 different people have won some great stuff (shoes, recovery shakes, books, and all this Gu and Sugoi stuff). But only 2 of those 11 have been dudes! Come on guys!! We need to pick up the pace!!
On that note, I’ll be sharing yet another giveaway with you guys later this week. Would you like to spend 5 days skiing with 3 friends in Tahoe? Yes? Then check back later.
One final big THANKS to the people at Gu, Sugoi, and Outside PR for being so generous! Thanks guys! This was fun!
