It’s time to finally announce the winner of our October contest. It should’ve happened, well, back in October, but a little bit of pneumonia set things back some. This month’s lucky winner: Bill Glenney! Bill has won a pair of shoes and an accessory from Brooks and the New England Running Co.
Congrats to Bill and thanks to Brooks and NE Running Co for stepping up to help another member of Level Legion to run happy. If you didn’t win this time then you’ll get your chance in November. Subscribers already know what the next contest is. Details on that one are on the way but be sure to get your free subscription to ensure that you have a chance.
The Steady “is the perfect blend of lightweight support and comfortable efficiency for the runner who wants it all.” Sounds pretty sweet. The men’s weighs in at a lean 8.9 oz and ladies version is…well, the weight’s not listed on the site as of now but we can imagine it’s bit lighter.
As for the shirt, all you need to know is that it will be cold soon and the shirt is bad ass (just like was said in the email). Couldn’t say it any better here.
The lucky winner is…
Thanks to Tod (and everyone else out there in Level Legion) for subscribing and helping us spread the word about the runners that make our sport great. For those who didn’t win, best of luck to you next month. It’ll be a good one and we can’t wait.
For those that need a refresher, this was the gist of the contest:
This month the LEVEL has teamed up with The Greater Boston Running Company and ASICS for a head to toe ASICS prize package including shoes & clothing. All subscribers are entered to win, and more chances to enter will be coming so keep checking in on the Level website and all of our social media channels.
Daniel is new to the Level and just ran the first annual Level Renner 10k. We surprised Daniel with the announcement just after he finished the race. We had no idea what he looked like, only knew that he was number 287. Once he caught his breath, he was able to bask in the glow of victory.
As you can see to the left, Daniel also got himself his very own Scott Mason Photo race pic. That alone is worth celebrating.
This contest was featured in our last monthly subscriber email. If you didn’t win, don’t worry, your next chance is coming up soon. Thanks again to all who came out to support us yesterday at our first event. It was so great to see so many familiar faces and to get know some new faces. We’re already thinking about 2014 and are looking forward to making it a better race.
Here is a brief interview with our latest contest winner:
Sorry for that video quality. Youtube won’t seem to let us upload in HD at the moment. We’ll have to try to fix it later.
Not much going on in Level Land today. I took the time to get out to the pool to get in a quick (but vigorous) half hour of aqua jogging, but instead got a healthy does of aqua drama. It got kind of awkward when the lifeguards started fighting and I was the only person in the water. All I wanted to do was get in and get out without any fuss but then the woman said “He [referring to me] got in at 1:35. I’ll be back at 2:05. You can’t leave until 2:05.” She was pissed, too. Okay, mom and dad are fighting and I’m caught in the middle! What do I do? If I wanted to get out early for some reason, then I’ll look like a wuss. Can’t have that now. If I wanted to get a little extra work in then I could be messing with someone’s schedule. Can’t have that now either. Why she have to pull me into the middle of that? High drama. I wonder what they were fighting about? Who would give me mouth to mouth should I need it? I guess we’ll never know.
Anyway, our ace reporter Victoria Barnaby was at the second BU Mini Meet today and we should have some good stuff coming from her about that very soon (no pressure Victoria).
We can also take the time here to announce the winner of our last t-shirt giveaway: DistanceHam. This was his comment on the NYC Marathon refund situation from Thursday:
But what about me? The runner who has yet to run the NYC Marathon. In the next few years are my chances going to be lessened because of the displaced this year? Granted, I probably won’t be able to afford the $300 entry fee, but can’t a guy dream? My goal when I started RACING marathons was to complete the World Marathon Majors. I’ve come to the realization that I probably won’t have the funds to afford those trips in the US, let alone over seas. It might cost me the shirt on my back. In which case, I’m going to need a new one.
I believe DistanceHam is none other than the Chris Hamel, but we’ll let Mr. Ham reveal his true identity when he’s ready.
We’re going to switch things up a bit for our next contest, details should be coming on that tomorrow.
