Thursday is Free $50 Card Day

05.31.2018 | 7:45 am

In my post at the end of last week, I was thinking about how to create a giveaway around my new Leadville Podcast (find it at “>Apple Podcasts and anywhere else you listen to podcasts. The problem I had was was complexity: I was asking people to jump through too many hoops, when really all I want is to support my sponsors (in this case, The Feed, and get people to give my new Leadville podcast — the best show I’ve ever made, by like, a lot — a shot.

I think I’ve got it figured out, and I’d like you to be my beta testers.

The contest idea is simple: listen to the podcast, then answer a question you’ll know the answer to if you listened to my sponsor spot for The Feed.

Before the next show, I’ll then pick a person from all the correct answers and email them the gift card to The Feed, which — I might add — has put together a “Fatty’s Leadville Box” that has all the products I use to have a fast day during a high-altitude race like Leadville.

So let’s do this.

First (if you haven’t already), listen (and subscribe and rate and review!) to the podcast:

Download on Apple Podcasts Stitcher

Then, fill in the form (click here to go to it if you don’t see it below). And that’s it!

Let me know what you think of this contest in the comments, and thanks for participating as I experiment and explore, looking for fun and interesting ways to combine things I’m excited about (i.e., this blog and this podcast), while supporting a company that is taking a pretty fair-sized gamble on a 2-week-old podcast.

    it’s a good format. The challenge will be setting the right difficulty for the questions. I like this one because all are plausible (even the mustard!), but there is only one correct answer.

    Thanks Bad Dad! – FC

    Entered the contest.

    Does The Feed have bacon flavored gels?

    Asking for a friend…

    who has access to my credit card.

    GU makes a Maple-Bacon gel, which is — get this — vegan. It’s also the worst-tasting gel they’ve ever shipped. Tell your dog that I can probably hook him up with a nice meatergy bar, though. – FC

    Hotshot is such a hot commodity here (in KS) it’s hard to keep on the shelf. I’ve personally stopped cramps with it & it’s developed a real following.

    Oh, how I’ve missed Leroy and his dog…

    Me too. I’ve missed a lot of people — definitely including you! Our hiking trip to Zion with you is one of our family’s favorite memories. – FC

    @Heidi – If you’re on Twitter, follow Leroy’s dog. He’s got quite a life!
