Last weekend I committed to announcing the winners of two CLIF Bar contests on Nov 3rd … and I’m making it with a little under three hours to spare. In ultrarunning terms, that’s a huge cushion below the cutoff time, so I’m choosing to think of this as an accomplishment.
But before we get to that, let’s knock out a Random Shot of Beauty:
The Lone Cypress in Pebble Beach, as seen during a family geocache outing on an 80-degree November day. California, baby … California.
And now for our winners. The first contest was in conjunction with CLIF’s Meet the Moment promotion, where my kids and I got to choose our favorite entry to receive a CLIF sampler pack. (Just as an FYI, I have no idea what’s in it – but it’s probably cool.) Here’s the one we picked:
Submitted by GregoryBoytos, who is our contest winner. Congrats!
The second contest is offering up a sample pack of CLIF’s brand new Chocolate Cherry BLOKs. This was a straightforward “whoever random.org’s number generator smiles upon” contest, and the winners are Stephan Uzzell, Sarah, and Owen Yeates.
Thanks very much to everybody who entered, and if you’re one of the winners, e-mail me your contact info so I can pass it along to my CLIF reps. Also, be on the lookout for another (non-CLIF related) contest later this week!
