Door prizes! (upcoming blogiversary giveaway)

Has it been a year already?
I tentatively dipped my toe into the blog waters in February 2011, and much like running, I got hooked.

To thank you all for your wonderful comments (this blog thing would be boring without you!), I'm hosting a self-funded giveaway. No corporate sponsors. Just a good, old fashioned door prize, to be announced on Superbowl Sunday, February 5th.

The Prize: The best book I read last year was The Long Run: A New York City Firefighter's Triumphant Comeback from Crash Victim to Elite Athlete, so I will send a copy (your choice of hardcover, paperback, or Kindle edition) to one lucky reader.*

How to Enter: You get an entry into the door prize drawing for each of the following (post a separate note in the comments section for each entry):
  • Follow using Google's "connect" feature -- see the "let's run (subscribe)" link in the sidebar (+1)
  • Follow on Facebook (+1)
  • Re-post about this giveaway on your blog (+2)

*Entries close at noon Pacific time on February 4th. I will draw a door prize winner at random, and will post the results on Superbowl Sunday (Feb 5th). To claim your prize, you must contact me within one week. If I do not receive a response by 11:59pm on Sunday, Feb 12th, I will choose another winner (also at random). There is (obviously) no cash redemption value for this prize.
