Yesterday (December 9th) was my 28th birthday, and because I am lazy, I didn’t write a blog post about what I learned this year or what I hope to accomplish in my 28th year or how much I hate birthdays or anything useful. Instead, I just worked on Ramblen and ate cake. I briefly considered only eating cake for all of my meals yesterday, but with a goal marathon on the horizon, that seemed unwise. I didn’t even run, actually. Yesterday was an off day on my training plan, and again, with Kiawah coming up on Saturday, I am adhering strictly to everything my spreadsheet says. I’m not one to make a big deal about my birthday in general, so this year, I decided that instead of buying myself a bunch of presents (I only bought myself one) I would give y’all some presents instead because I’m benevolent as hell in my advanced age. So it’s like I’m giving you presents that you can then give to someone else for Christmas. These are the gifts that keep on giving, really.
Entering each of the giveaways is easy! The only mandatory entry is to leave a comment on my blog, but you’ll get lots of bonus entries if you use the other options too! Read my reviews and enter below.
Giveaway #1: ICEdot Crash Sensor – $150 Value!!!
Item #1 that I am giving away is some really amazing technology from ICEdot. You may have seen this item mentioned in my gift guide from about a month ago, and you’re seeing it again because it is amazing. The Crash Sensor attaches to your bike helmet (or ski/snowboard helmet, or whatever other kind of helmet) and works in conjunction with an app on your smartphone that uses Bluetooth to communicate with the sensor. If you get into a serious crash, the sensor will detect the impact and send a signal to the app, which will then text your GPS coordinates and a notification to your designated emergency contacts. Pretty cool, right? The iPhone App is already out and Android is coming out in the next few weeks, so now your family doesn’t have to worry when you go on insanely long bike rides by yourself on dangerous country roads! Or am I the only one who does that?

Giveaway #2: PowerPlay Cold Compression Knee Wrap – $350 Value!!!
You’ve also seen me using my PowerPlay Cold Compression wrap in some previous blog posts. PowerPlay makes a series of wraps that provide both the “ice” and “compression” phases of the RICE recovery model at the same time, and anything that helps me recover more efficiently is something I want! The wrap comes with a gel insert that can be either frozen or refrigerated, depending on the level of cold desired. Once the gel pack is inserted, the user than uses the battery operated pump to inflate the wrap to the desired compression level. You’re killing two birds with one stone!
I’m giving away PowerPlay’s awesome knee wrap, although the one I use is specifically for my ankle as I recover from my stress fracture. The good folks at PowerPlay and I figured that since so many runners have knee-related issues, this would be the most helpful!
