As February begins, I find myself entering ballots and sweepstakes of which I rarely win with the exception of a marathon ballot or two. I’ve struck out on the HGTV Dream House since the first house offered in a sweepstake. This year will be my fourth ballot entry for the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon. On the bright side, I’m almost certain I’ll get a bib for the 2015 Broad Street Run. Also, in the brighter category, FroKnowsPhoto is hosting a super-mega giveaway extravaganza with his dSLR video guide, even if you don’t win a prize, the dSLR video guide is a valuable resource.
Here is a look at what I most likely won’t win in no particular order:
2015 Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon with no luck so far.T he 2015 ballot will be open from Tuesday 27 January until 5pm on Wednesday 4 February 2015. Runners will be notified on February 6th. My prediction for this year? A resounding ‘So Sorry, you weren’t selected’ email.
2015 Broad Street 10 Miler. Registration for the 2015 Blue Cross Broad Street Run will be done through a lottery. The lottery will open at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday, February 1 and close at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, February 13. Those selected for the lottery will be posted on our website on Tuesday, February 18. My prediction strongly leans towards a successful ballot entry.
2015 HGTV Dream Home.Entries begin at 9:00 a.m. Eastern Time (“ET”) on December 29, 2014 until 5:00 p.m. ET on February 17, 2015. My prediction: I’m 100% sure I will continue my losing streak with this sweepstakes.
FroKnowsPhoto Super-Mega giveaway extravaganza. Purchasing the dSLR video guide before Feb 28th enters you into a giveaway of very cool gear. I have two of the items being raffled off, but the Atomos Ninja looks interesting. My prediction: It is highly unlikely I’ll win anything but the training guide is a good investment for my future projects.
I created this post as a type of inoculation with a fingers-crossed hope that the sting of rejection will be blunted. I’ll update the post with my results as the come in in the near future.
