Over a week ago when I announced this writing competition to find the best “secret tip or training idea” I wasn’t sure how it would fly. Would anyone even participate?? I didn’t want it to look like I was trying to bride people to write for the Daily News (when truth be known that is probably a correct assumption!). I was SO impressed when I received 4 EXCELLENT website stories from Thom Van Vleck, John McKean, Joe Garcia and Scott Tully.
Next – I left the vote up to the membership. Would anyone even take the time to send in a vote? Or is anyone really even reading all this garble that I turn out? I have to admit I was a little nervous! However, all my worry was for naught and the votes came flying in!! Close to half the USAWA membership must have cast a vote, and the votes were for ALL the stories! Not one author dominated. In fact, it was a tie till last night when the last vote came in to determine who won a set of my hanging dumbbell handles. Now THAT is a vote that counts!!!!
It’s time to announce the winner.. and the winner is….(drumroll)…..John McKean!!!!
