...And We Have a Winner! Rock 'N' Roll Nashville Half/Marathon Giveaway!

I knew that even if I gave myself weeks to think about how to select a winner, I'd probably never out-do myself for letting my cat select the ZYM giveaway winners. But I still was scoffing at the thought of heading over to random.org to do the picking for something so awesome. This is a Rock 'N' Roll Nashville Marathon giveaway, for goodness sake. We need some some edge-of-our-seat excitement here!

So I adopted a little technique I found over on Steve in a Speedo's blog a few months back.

First up, I printed all the contestants. Thanks to a few of you for leaving comments that weren't actually an entry... jerks. ;)

Then I numbered all the legit entries (there were 27 of them). Brownie points to those of you who entered this contest seriously. :)

And to determine the winner... in shows up a friend who doesn't even know I have a blog.

And there we have it!

  6. AA,
    You crushed it with this contestant selection. I'll be having a weird/sweet contest early next month and I'd love for advice on how to make the selection when it comes around.
