The Scavenger Hunt for the Yaktrax Winner

Okay, so it's not that easy I find out to host a give away on social media.  There are rules, bylaws, marathon length guidelines and hefty penalties.  So, I came up with an off the beaten social media path idea to give away cool swag I love and not get thrown into jail.

Here are the rules (not many and I don't have any lawyers so please don't sue me if you get hurt in this virtual race.)

Rules and Regulations:
Your Mission should you choose to accept it:  Navigate through all five virtual check points (questions below) and the find answers to each of these questions on the web (Google will be your trusty teammate on your journey).  The person that posts the correct answers to all of the questions on the comments section of this blog, wins a pair of Yaktrax.  [One post per person.]  For the record, I have no affiliation with Yaktrax other than using them for years and years

That's it.  Simple, sweet and a fun way to win a very useful running/walking tool to move not only more safely in the snow, but a heck of a lot more efficiently too.

The first three people to post the correct answers ON THIS BLOG comments section (not social media) wins a pair of Yaktrax.

Clause:  Sending Coach Jenny sweet emails, brownies or any other bribes will not help you win the Yaktrax.  Well, maybe the brownies, but none of that other fake stuff!

__________________________________________________________


Question #1:  What marathon did Coach Jenny write about wearing Yaktrax?

Question #2:  Where did (specific location/destination and distance) Coach Jenny run with her brother Scott and a piano-playing rock star to honor her father?

Question #3:  List the five Italian cities where Coach Jenny be running in September?

Question #4:  What are Coach Jenny's 5 Great Reasons to Cross-Train?

Question #5:  What is the name of the race that Coach Jenny and Fozzie Bear participated last summer?
