When you reach the Roanoke Star, mile 13 on the Blue Ridge Marathon, what motivational sign would you like to see?
Answer this question in a comment below (just once) for an entry into my drawing for a FREE Blue Ridge Marathon or Half Marathon race entry.
Follow my Twitter feed at @scissorsrunning and you’ll get a second entry. All entries submitted between 11/4/2013 and 11/9/2013 will be put into a random drawing.
Q: Roanoke Star?
A: Of course. It’s the largest neon star in the world.
Q: I don’t think I want to sign up for the marathon.
A: That is not in the form of a question, but…And miss the 7200 ft of elevation change? OK, you can also win a half marathon entry. Heck, I might even switch to the half myself.
Q: Can I wear my festive patriotic tights covered in stars to the race?
A: You will rock the tights.
Q: I have a great idea but it is teetering on the edge of good taste. Can I play?
A: If your entry is profane or disgusting I will remove it and block you. Don’t be that creepy person.
Q: When is the race?
A: Sure, this is the FAQ, but use the link above to get all the race details. Or, go here.
Q: I heard that this race has been rainy in the past. Will it rain?
A: I checked the Farmer’s Almanac and the weather will be perfect.
Q: How will I claim my free race entry that I know I will win?
A: Ummm…stay tuned. I need to get in touch with the real sponsors of this giveaway, the Blue Ridge Marathon Peeps.
Q: Won’t you just pick Ann to win?
A: Well really, I’d like to, but to be fair I will do a random drawing of all legitimate entries. Ann could certainly win and I hope she enters.
Q: What if I just write a comment about how worthy I am of a free race entry, instead of what I would like to see on a motivational sign?
A: Play my little game or no entry for you.
Q: I had midterms this week and it’s Sunday! Can I still play?
A: Read the syllabus. No entry for you.
Q: If I live in Raleigh, can we do hill repeats together?
A: Hill repeats are my favorite! Sometimes I even bust out a few lines from the Sound of Music.
