Two weeks ago we launched our first-ever product giveaway. The kind folks at Vi Endurance sent me several boxes of Vi Fuel carbohydrate gel to review and offered another three boxes of their product to the winner of contest I was to run on this site. The rules for the contest were simple: just pick a number between 1 and 200 and leave the number in the comment section for the review. The contest ended at midnight on November 30, 2012.
The winning number was 103 and the person closest to this number was Ashley (photo above) who guessed 100. Ashley is an avid cyclist who lives in Michigan and she is also a blogger (women.cyclists). I have suggested to Ashley that after she tries out the Vi Fuel she ought to write a product review for it herself—that way folks can get a “second opinion” of this great product. For the record, this is one of the few products I have listed as “highly recommended” and have already placed an order for a few more boxes of Vi Fuel (at retail prices).
In order to insure the integrity of the contest I had nothing to do with picking the winning number. On Wednesday, November 28 Thomas Booth from Booth, Schwager and Associates used a random number generator (from random.org) to select a number between 1 and 200 and that is how 103 was selected as the winning number (see the screenshot on the left hand side of this page).
Special thanks to Michael Hodges of Vi Endurance for making this contest possible.
