#JellyBean Prize Winners

The 3rd annual Jelly Bean virtual race was indeed another smashing success. Thank you to all who participated... over 1000 people! The purpose of my virtual races is all about fun and motivation. I love to see runners uniting together for a run. I love springtime (although the jury is still out on that one). I love the encouragement to step outside our comfort zones with a variety of events... perhaps it was your first 5k, maybe a challenge to get all three runs done, or a push to dust off the bike after a long winter rest. Whatever the race accomplished for you, I'm glad you played along... and hope you enjoyed a jelly bean (or handful) afterward.

I want to first acknowledge the 28 participants who achieved ROCKSTAR status by completing all four events and reporting them... GREAT JOB!
Alicia Burrill   •   Allison Milancewich   •   Amanda Carey   •   Becky Butler
Christine Viota   •   Genie Dietz   •   Jacky Camós      Janet Look
Jason Kriess   •   Jill Weiner   •   Joel Coovert   •   Kallin Anderson
Kim Demary   •   Kyria W.   •   Laura Gay   •   Laura Harms
Lindsay Barnes   •   Lisa Jones   •   Lisa Ngai   •   Lula Carter
Megan Kinney   •   Nancy Capen   •   Pedro Castro   •   Ramona Hasan
Sarah Blissett   •   Suzanne Westenhofer   •   Valerie Butler   •   Victoria Butler

I decided to do a surprise prize drawing amongst these top athletes alone.
The winner of my Grand Prize Pack is... JILL WEINER
It will be a surprise when it arrives - a variety of my favorite things!
