I'm back from my Disney vacation, so it's time to announce some winners!

The ING NYC Marathon did not go as planned, thus this promotion kinda fell flat on its face. A few readers still participated; however, your photos were attacked on the ING Runners Nation Facebook wall by angry people. I'm so sorry that people feel the need to write such harsh words to someone they've never even met. I believe we can support runners and victims at the same time. There was no need to pick sides in this catastrophe. The Mayor eventually cancelled the marathon. Many runners who had traveled long distances and trained hard months were disappointed... so they ran anyway. See #marathonmyway on Twitter.  ING has donated over $500,000 to the recovery efforts and thousands of runners volunteered on marathon weekend in recovery efforts.

I made the mistake of not wearing my Injinji socks in humid Florida, and for that, I ended my race with a little blister between the toes. Lesson learned. If you missed my review or want more information on Injinji toesocks, click here.

  1. yay!! I'm so excited that I won! I think this was all for a great cause and unfortunately didn't go quite has planned...but there were good intentions. I agree we can support runners AND victims at the same time. Thanks for this Jess.

  2. Congrats winners!!!

  3. This whole situation was so unfortunate. As a runner, I was still mad but not at runners, but rather at the leaders who decided to still go ahead with the event when it should have been cancelled from the get go. I was surprised at how much anger was directed to the runners, who had nothing to do with the decision. Bad situation all around. On another note: congrats to the winners!


I appreciate your feedback and comments!
