This Week's Contest Winner!

First of all I 'd like to thank those of you who entered my first blog contest! As follows:

1) Mary McManus
2) Nina Coolidge
3) Private (I have the name and address, but it was requested to be kept private)
4) Lisa & Clark Wright
5) Alett Mekler
6) Ruth Ann McManus

This is the order that you entered and the numbers I entered into the Random Number Generator...

...And the winner IS: #6 - Ruth Anne McManus!

Thank you all VERY much for your donations! Ruth Anne, you've won an AWESOME prize package and I am incredibly jealous! I will forward your contact info to Melody and Heather so that they can get your size requirements and color choices, etc. After all this is a CUSTOM, hand-knit Hat, Mittens and Scarf set!

An extra-special thanks, of course, goes out to Melody (@MrsKnitpho from knitphomaniacs.com) and Heather (@wickedphysics from pinsneedlespaperclips.com), without you this contest and the money raised this week would not have been possible! I have one thing to say... "Glacial Kettles!" ;-)

Everyone needs to stay tuned for my next contest and future contests. I've had some incredibly generous donors who've donated some really great prizes including Brooks Running who've donated 3 pair of shoes for me to give away (actually donated from the Brooks ID program, of which I am a sponsored athlete), Go Headband, Soleus Running, and Zensah who've all donated some of their incredible products to my "Miles for Miracles" campaign, which I will give away right here on this blog to the wonderful people who support my cause with donations to Children's Hospital.


  1. congratulations to the winners!!!

  2. That is so awesome Doug -- what a great way to fun(d) raise. So maybe now I won't be able to borrow it since it is custom made .:) And speaking of custom made - let me know if you want me to donate an original poem and my books of original poetry to your blog contest give away. See you Sunday! HUGS - Mary

  3. Oh yes! Most definitely! I thought I already replied to that e-mail!?!? Sorry. Baby brains...
