Yes, you read that right, FREE!! It's my first give--a-way. I got this as a prize at my second half IM, so several years ago now. I was the very last person to cross the line, except the line wasn't even there anymore, just a guy with a stop watch. You can read about it here.
Here's the prize. It's a set of carbon fibre aero bars, retail value about $220.
Here's the kicker though. If you're the winner you have to drop by to pick it up. I suppose I could meet you at some mutually convenient location, in Calgary, and give it to you then. But in that case you won't get any milk and cookies. It need not be instantly, so if you're planning a trip to Calgary, or have friends here willing to be your intermediary, I can cope with that. Unless you're cute and therefore I'd be missing out on a hug. :-( For my American readers, this gives you a good reason to pick a race in or near Calgary this summer. There is no shortage to choose from. So, lets see. Today is Sept 17. I'll give people till Sunday Sept 26 to comment. I guess if you comment before I look at my blog on the 27th, that would be ok too. I'll choose a winner based on my own arbitrary set of criteria, and announce him or her on the 27. That gives you something to look forward to on a Monday.
The great basement library tidy up is going well. Here's the proof:
Compare that to the photo in yesterday's blog. The neat thing about tidying up is that you find all kinds of stuff. Stuff you'd forgotten you had. Stuff you wonder when or how you came to own. So far there is a big bag going to the Sally Ann, several bags of garbage, and our big blue recycling in on wheels is nearly full. Most of it is paper or cardboard. I somehow don't think there is much of a market for old Macworld magazines from the early 90's.
No fitness today, unless you count a zillion trips up and down the stairs, toting books and all sorts of other crap up and down. And we had pizza for supper. So there.
