Sweetening the Pot

For all who donate to my Livestrong challenge, either directly or indirectly, your name will be entered into a hat to win one of 5 copies of the new book The Ultimate Runner. This book is over 50 stories, photos and expert tips from extraordinary runners like you.

So go ahead and donate today! I'll keep the contest open until I have enough interest to actually order jerseys (I need about 25 willing purchasers!). This is for a great cause, so please, donate (or comment about purchasing a jersey!) today!!

Jersey update

Okay, the jerseys are going to cost you $57, plus shipping. They are going to be made by Blackbottoms, which means they're going to be amazing quality. Blackbottoms makes the various leaders jerseys for the Tour of Utah, they also make Burke Swindlehurst's TeamGive kits, as well as many other professional-level kits. Trust me, you're going to want one of these jerseys. And it's for a great cause.

Again, leave a comment on this blog with how many and what size. Thanks again for supporting such a great cause, and getting a great jersey in exchange!

Get Your Jerseys HERE!

Okay, here's the low-down on the jerseys. I'm still working out pricing, but I know it will NOT be more than $60, shipping INCLUDED. Not a bad price for a nice jersey! If you want to order one, please leave me a comment on this post with how many and what sizes (race or club cut is available, just state your preference). I do have minimums to meet, so if there's not enough interest, I won't take your money and we'll all just go our merry ways. But please, tell your friends, your cycling friends, your friends who have battled cancer or know someone who has. Let's raise some money and help LAF and FatCyclist to beat this disease.

Jersey design

Here's the preliminary design. There's room on the sleeves and the sides for sponsorship opportunities (leave a comment with your email address if you're interested). Price is not yet firmly nailed down, but hopefully will be $50-60, which is a great price for any jersey, and this one's for a great cause. Stay tuned for more info!

Raising Funds

Okay folks, this is where I beg shamelessly for donations.

I've decided to jump in and set up a fund raising site with the Lance Armstrong Foundation. I want to start small and raise $500 to help folks with cancer battle the disease. I've set up a fundraiser website here, where you can go donate.

Also, in the next day or two, I'm going to be selling some sweet cycling jerseys and donating the proceeds to LAF as well. I'll include ordering details with the design when I post it, so check back soon and often. I promise they'll be uber-cool. I think they'll go for $50 each, which is a great deal for a cycling jersey at anytime, fund raising philanthropy aside!

Thanks all!
