    I found out this morning that I'd won a raffle for donating to a LIVESTRONG Challenge fundraising page, and that my prize would be either a Specialized S-WORKS helmet or a gift certificate for a RE-Load messenger bag.

    These are, by far, the coolest things I've ever won. It was a nice surprise, since it's rare that I ever win anything in contests or raffles. I'm totally psyched!

    What's the coolest piece of swag you've ever gotten in a contest/raffle or at a competition or event?

    Rebecca Rusch gave me a signed, limited edition Stella 180 Rusch at Interbike 2007.

    At one time I did offer it for sale, but I changed my mind.

    Yeah, I found your previous life through a Google search when I was looking to see what a Stella 180 is.

    Yeah, I figured as much. I think I was going to sell it to finance another trip to Interbike, but convinced my boss to pay instead.

    Linky to light.
