A HUGE thank you to everyone who entered the Turtles first-ever giveaway! It's been fun reading all of your comments, ideas, and suggestions, and meeting you via e-mail/comments on your blogs! I look forward to creating lots of new posts, based on your feedback!
I enlisted the help of "Hubby" tonight, to randomly select our winner. Here's how it went:
1. I entered everyone's name into an Excel spreadsheet in the order each comment was received/appeared.
2. Next, Hubby added a new column to the left and added 1- 183 (wow!), to represent the number of comments.
3. Then, he hid your names. You can see this in the picture above, as he changes the font from black to white.)
4. He sorted column #1, to scramble the numbers.
5. He thought for a moment. (Such a good thinker, this guy!) :-)
and chose #67 (in honor of my birthday, which is fast approaching...that's my birth year, not age btw - LOL!).
6. When he revealed the names, we learned that Tobi (Busy Running Mama) is the winner of the Turtles giveaway, which is extra special because she was one of the Turtles' earliest followers, a great bloggy friend, and has been on the injured-reserved list for a while. Hopefully, this will make her day as she works through physical therapy and getting her awesome self back on the road!
And to document the date and time, we took one more picture......
E-mail me your mailing info when you get a minute (I know tax season is in full swing!), and I'll get this great runner's bag o' goodies sent out to you.
Happy running, friends....
