What this is: a contest wherein the winner gets to run a marathon with Frank Shorter. Frank Shorter, my running hero.
But I don't really know how. I mean, I have photos of me running, but I don't really think they're the sort of thing that could get people to vote for me (they're looking for the most inspirational photo; not a how-not-to).
The other option is to "Submit a picture of the most creative display/placement of the Foot Levelers Blue Ridge Marathon logo." I thought about photoshopping their logo onto one of my myriad photos from my semi-exotic travels, but then I realized... a) I don't have photoshop, and b) isn't that cliche?
I'll let you in on a secret: I am not a creative person. And the lead entrant already has over a thousand votes. Could I possibly still win this if I entered? Any suggestions on how?
And yes, I did angrily tweet on Saturday that I was giving up marathoning. But like a true junkie, maybe just one more will be okay...
Hey, don't forget your promise to run MCM next year with me. I don't care if you don't train, but you're running it!ReplyDelete
I'll be there :) Assuming we can get in!!Delete
I know this is a trifling consideration for you, but you should also know that the Blue Ridge Marathon is really, really hard. Like Monkey hard, but in the Spring with the potential for warm temperatures.ReplyDelete
A thousand votes isn't that much. Your Facebook entourage alone can get you to that level.
For some reason the elevation change is perversely appealing to me. Hm.Delete
I have teh photoshop, and some skillz! What's their logo?ReplyDelete
Let's email. Ooh, let's email.Delete
How are you going to marry Frank Shorter if you don't enter the contest? THIS IS FATE!ReplyDelete
