And the winners are…

I had the best day today.  I started my day off with a 10 mile run with Zain in the stroller.  It was in the mid-50s and gorgeous in the morning.  I could have done without the crazy wind we had, but Zain and I both really enjoyed the sunshine.  After our run, we went to the playground with some of Zain’s friends.  Both mommy and Zain were worn out from a morning of fun.  While Zain took his nap, I got down to business with picking Winter 100 Challenge winners.  I was SO excited to see who won!

I used to choose random numbers to assign to each prize on my list.  The random numbers corresponded to my list of participants in my spreadsheet.  I’ve already contacted all my winners, but here there are for everyone to see!

Garmin Forerunner 210 – Jared C. @RealRunnerGeek

GU Energy Labs sample pack – Nikki B.

Ryders Eyewear sunglasses – Katie N. (check out Katie’s super cool blog!)

Sparkly Soul headband – Sarah G.

Nuun water bottle and sample pack– Matt W.

Go Sport ID gift cards – Bill B. @billdback and Tricia B.

SparkleSkirts skirt – Scarlett T.

I want to thank you all SO much for participating.  I was truly inspired by the response to this challenge and by how hard you all worked to get in those 100 miles.

My 100 miles came pretty easily with marathon training.  Not that the miles were all easy, but they added up quickly.  I ran 106 in December, 149 in January and 139 in February.  My grand total was 394.  That’s huge for me since most winters my mileage has piled up to a big fat 0 or maybe just under 50 miles for the whole winter.

I was also extremely lucky that we have been having an insanely mild winter.  I never even got a chance to wear the Yaktrax hubby got me for Christmas! Maybe next year.

Again, thank you to everyone who participated.  When I had the idea for this challenge, I had no idea if it was even a good idea or if anyone would even sign up.  I wish I could give each and every one of you a prize for participating.

Stay tuned because the Winter 100 Challenge will definitely be back for the winter of 2012-2013!

Happy Running!
