Gear Check - ING New York City Marathon Swag!

When I entered the ING Runner's Nation Featured Runners contest, I was hoping to win the HD Flip video camera that was listed as a prize. When I was selected as a Featured Runner, I found out I would also receive a promotional t-shirt. What I didn't know, is that I would also receive a box full of cool ING goodies!

This package actually arrived earlier this week but I thought a Saturday Gear Check would be an appropriate time to take a look at the loot.

The first box to arrive contained:

An ING Duffle Bag
An ING Runner's Backpack
An ING Beer Coozie
ING Shoe Laces
An ING Luggage Tag
An ING Stop Watch
An ING Whistle
An ING Cowbell
ING Sunglasses
An ING Runner's Nation Banner
An ING Baseball Cap
An ING Visor
And an HD Flip Camcorder!!!!!!!

What a haul! It was like Christmas!

Then, two days later... another box on the front porch. This time, it was an ING Runner's Nation t-shirt and a long sleeve ING New York City Marathon Tech Shirt!

Who knew there would be so many perks to being a Featured Runner?

So Liz and I will be all ING'd up and wearing orange when we head to New York. I'm already making videos with my Flip camera so I hope to post some soon. And we used some of the gear for promotional purposes in my attempt to win the VIP race experience through Facebook.

Three weeks to go before the race and all of this gear has me pumped!

  1. I've got a fever, and the prescription is more cowbell!

  2. Many people weren't crazy about those tiny orange glasses. I am NOT one of those people. I was wondering if you or anyone you know still has a pair that they would be willing to sell. I've been trying to hunt them down for some time now so please let me know if you can help me out! Thanks in advance.
