All of you Loyal Level Legion subscribers out there most likely saw the blurb in our last monthly email about the Karhu contest. Details are finally here. Karhu is offering a up a cool prize pack to help you beat the heat on these hot summer days.
A reader unfamiliar with the intensity of New England summers recently inquired about the conditions in the area in mid-July. Well, if you step into direct sunlight any time in July around here there is a very good chance that you could burn up like some kind of vampire. The multi-channeled fibers of the Craft Cool Mesh Superlight singlet are designed to keep you cool and greatly reduce the risk of any Dracula-like demise.
One lucky winner will receive both a pair of Karhu Flow Light shoes and a Craft Cool Mesh Superlight singlet. Pictured here are the men’s versions of each but the women’s versions are available should a lucky lady be the winner. The contest is open to subscribers only, so be sure to sign up for your free Level subscription if you haven’t already. If you already have one, then you’re in. If you just sign up now, they you’re in too.
There will be chances for bonus entries for you subscribers that follow us through our various social media channels. Contest is open from now until we publish the next issue of the magazine (first week of July). We’ll reveal the winner in the next monthly email, which is the same email that will announce the release of the upcoming issue.
Thanks to Karhu for the hook up, and extra special thanks to the Legion for your enthusiasm about what we’re doing here!
**Note: Winners located outside of the continental US will be responsible for the related shipping costs.
So it’s my birthday today…again. I guess it comes every year. All I know is, I’m getting too old for this sh… It was nice to awaken to find all the birthday greetings awaiting for me on Facebook, but then again it made me feel guilty that I was sleeping in while all these people were doing that. I don’t even want to think of all the ones that were actually out racing or training…that’ll make me feel even lazier.
One of them in particular jumped out at me. A speedy senior on my team mentioned that he has a birthday tradition of doing a pushup for every year of his existence, all non-stop of course. The question ‘What do you do’ was asked of me, and I had nothing. Nothing! Why don’t I have a tradition? I’ve heard of other people doing traditions based on their years, like miles run, shots and even jumping flaming school buses on a motorcycle (it could happen, right?).
I need to come up with something! So, what’s your tradition? Leave it in the comments here. Even if your tradition is nothing, either say nothing or make one up. We’ll pick one entry at random to win a Level t-shirt. Contest is for today only, so get your entries in by midnight
We’ll be giving away something every day between now and the end of the year. If you haven’t already, like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter so you’ll be in the loop for all of the contest details and deadlines (along with getting latest on your favorite sport).
