And the Winner is...

I was really hoping that by doing this contest, we would either influence a non-triathlete to enter their first race or encourage a seasoned triathlete to make the trip to Philly to race with us. 

Turns out I got my wish! The winner is Nichole W., a good friend of ours who was a standout runner at SUNY New Paltz. I've been trying to get Nichole into the idea of doing a triathlon since she granduated last year...so now's your chance, Nichole! No pressure, of course. 

Since I knew a bunch of the names in the entry comments, I made sure to document my tabulations carefully, in case the results appeared fixed (which turned out to be the case). Remember, I am a CPA and once did this sort of thing for a living, so everyone can rest assured that the contest was fair!

Nichole, we hope you'll be joining us in Philly. And for everyone else, we are happy to announce that we'll be emailing you an online discount code good for $15 off any 2014 TriRock Series triathlon, your choice of race distance. 

Thanks for playing and thanks for sharing your 2014 race plans with us. We'll be cheering for you!!
