MAKE ME A COVER BOY…
“Once more unto the breach, dear friends.” -Willy “Billy Bob” Shakespeare
This past March I asked for your help by throwing a vote my way to become one of the ambassadors for A Runner’s Circle.*
Unfortunately fortune did not share its fortune with me that day and I had to give one of those presidential concession speeches where I thanked the people who whipped my butt in a public forum while I appeared to be happy. You know, like those reaction shots of the people at the Academy Awards whose name isn’t in the envelope and later say “It was just “an honor to be nominated.”
Well, I’ve decided to once more give it the “college try” when it comes to public opinion.
This past week Runner’s World magazine announced its latest contest where one lucky man and woman each will be chosen as cover models for an upcoming issue.
Since I’ve long given up my quest to be on the cover of the “Sports Illustrated” swimsuit issue (revealing bikinis tend not to be too flattering on guys) this may very well be my last shot to grace the front of a sports magazine.
I read the rules (talk about lawyer-speak overload) and it seems the finalists are chosen not just by “popularity” (OMG/LOL/WTF) but also by what the person has to say… still votes do help.
So, please do me a favor and give the my link a look and toss a vote my way.
You can vote once each day, so make a it morning ritual like going for a run, drinking coffee or… well, some other nameless morning ritual.
Cast your vote… and Run on!
*NOTE: The people who won the ARC contest are friends of mine and excellent ambassadors. And A Runner’s Circle rewarded each of the nominees. And of course I plan to take a crack at it again next year. Victory shall be mine!
