Hi Trippers!

The good kind of "Addict."

The good kind of “Addict.”

Thanks to everyone who entered the “Let’s Be Addicts” contest for a chance to win a FREE download of the Race Addict App.

I’ve tallied up the names and entered them into the Brainiac 5000 Mega-Super Computer (don’t worry, it assures me that it’s not hellbent on world domination).

So without further ado, here are the five lucky winners:

  1. El Price
  2. Julie Staudinger
  3. Chris Tabaka
  4. Erika Whitney
  5. Larry Willis

And for those of you who were overlooked by the Brainiac 5000 Mega-Super Computer, you can still get a copy of the Race Addict App. It’s only $1.99, well worth every penny (cheaper than, well just about anything running-related) and a great way to keep track of all of your races.

So be sure to check out the Race Addict website: Race Addict Website.

And keep visiting “Tripping The Kenyans” as we’ve got a brand new contest coming on Monday… oh, and plenty of witty running witticisms too.

Run on!

Hi Trippers!

Race Addict: A good kind of addiction.

Race Addict: A good kind of addiction.

If you’re like me, you run a lot of races and it can be a challenge to keep track of everything. My race shirts hang in the closet, my race bling on a race medal hanger (need to get another one soon). I even keep my race bibs together.

But where do you store all of your vital race information like:

  • Race Name
  • Location
  • Date
  • Start Time
  • Results
  • Bib Number
  • PR’s
  • and much more…

For the longest time I kept all of my race info on an excel spreadsheet (nerdy, I know) but showing that to friends (even racing ones) was about as exciting as displaying quarterly business projections. And creating a PowerPoint presentation seemed like overkill.
