Grand Prize Adventure Winner!!

Happy Monday, Adventurers!  I know you’ve been waiting on pins and needles for this announcement, but first I have to tell you all THANK YOU for joining my virtual race!!  I’ve had such a blast hosting it and really enjoyed reading all the race reports!  Mud runs, bicycle rides and (dream) marathons, oh my!  I had such a hard time choosing just one Grand Prize winner, check out these awesome entries:

Chris over at Running After Daylight ran a 50K adventure, complete with broken bones – yikes!

Sophia the Ambitious Slacker got down and dirty with a Mud Run adventure, and even though there are no race pics there is a really cute bunny and a handsome pirate in her report!

Speaking of mud runs, Megan from the Daily Sweat rocked her muddy adventure in some mighty cute socks and yet somehow managed to stay pretty clean!

Darlene of My First 5K Blog fame, took a day off of work for her 5K adventure!  Oh, okay, it was a Veteran’s Day race, but she did awesome and took home an AG award, too.

The very picturesque ajh at AGE GROUPS ROCK had a chilly and alliterative bicycle adventure – woo hoo for a new commuting PR!!

One Crazy Penguin made me totally jealous with her 15K Chocolate adventure (and made me laugh by including a Spinal Tap reference in her report)!

Oh, and if you want a really good laugh, go check out Shalane Marcia’s virtual marathon adventure on Running Off at the Mouth.  This girl cracks me up!

ShebaJC over at Thankfully Thorns Have Roses fought through a bad cold, a bad stomach and bad knee pain during her 7-mile adventure, what a tough cookie!

Whitney from Running with Whit made a mad dash for the port-a-potties during her Race to P(ee) adventure!  I’m pretty sure she got a P(ee)R.  *groan*

The funny and festive Anne at Asthma and the Gift of Running really went all out for a birthday adventure – 4K of balloons, beautiful scenery and a cake, too!

I wish I could give prizes to everyone, but in the end I picked (drum roll, please…)

Elizabeth from Canyon Cairns!

Elizabeth went on a fantastic (and very challenging!) adventure, just to… well, I won’t spoil the ending for you, read it for yourself!

Congratulations Elizabeth, you get to choose TWO of the prizes described here.  Please email me at with your choices and I’ll let you know how to claim them.

Fellow adventurers, have no fear – four more lucky winners will be chosen at random.  Winner #1 will be announced later this week and will get to choose from the remaining prizes, then Winner #2 will be chosen, and so on.  I hope you all had a Happy Adventure!!

Wow, I've only read a couple of the reports... can't wait to read the rest. Such an awesome adventure race you put on... I can't believe I was too much of a loser to participate. :( Hope your birthday is/was a great one!!

You really had a great turnout for this VR! I've read most of the reports and they have all been interesting and several are pretty darn funny. I think Elizabeth's geocaching report is pretty spectacular and quite a tribute to you, P!:) Thanks for putting on a great race!
