Virtual Race Invite: The Brass Monkey

There has been a lot of complaining lately about contests being female-oriented so, guys, this one is for you. (But ladies can also participate; I’ll be running.)

Some of these days have seemed cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey. Since misery loves company, you can join me on February 19th, 20th or 21st for The Brass Monkey 5K Virtual Race (appropriately hosted by Balls in the Air).

And, yes, there will be prizes (simple prizes as there is no official sponsor for the event) for winners of the following categories:
1. Running in the coldest temperature.

2. Running with the least amount of clothing (without violating any provincial or state laws). Each item is considered one piece (e.g. 1 sock, 1 shoe, 1 pair of tights, 1 jacket are all considered one.)

3. Running – one randomly drawn prize just for participating. How cool is that?

Yes, this event is entirely for fun – but feel free to time it. I know some of you must.

Entering is simple. All you have to do is let me know you’re in by sending an e-mail to ballsintheair[at]live[dot]com by Friday, February 11, 2011. I’ll post a list at the end of each week.

Please, share this link with your friends. The more, the merrier.
