About 2 weeks ago, I posted about a Merrell Shoe giveaway that I WASN'T hosting - I just alerted all my readers to it.
Just a few days ago, someone named Shanna commented back on that post of mine:
Steve, you're not going to believe it (in fact, I'm still not sure if I do). I am the winner of the onlineshoes.com giveaway! Thanks to you, because I wouldn't even have known about the contest without being a faithful reader of your blog. And thank you onlineshoes.com. I look forward to receiving my free shoes in the near future. = )
I'm SUPER PUMPED a reader won the shoes! Congrats Shanna!
In other news, a local personal training company run by a twitter peep of mine is running in interesting contest. They're looking for 6 people to train for 3 months with their trainers a few times a week. It sounds like a mini version of "The Biggest Loser:" it says the participants will "benefit from detailed nutrition planning and meal guides, weekly workout regimes as well as weekly incentives for working your butt off." The big winner at the end wins $1,000!!
You just need to submit a photo and a single paragraph about why you should be part of the team. If you get picked, you DO have to pay $489 to help cover some of the personal trainer costs, but you'll be part of a bigger online group and you'll be getting healthier along the way - AND hopefully winning prizes and maybe $1,000!!
If you're not far from Minneapolis, check out the details here if you're interested. Happy weekend!
