Vibram Prize goes to

As a jogger, I felt like this would be a great way to contribute to the amateur runners in Hong Kong. The heat, humidity, and hills make it a tough place to run. But, if you do it enough, the body will adapt. So, I took it upon myself to create an internet campaign. The idea is that I would video people while I jog and then later find photos of them on the course. This is very time consuming, although I know those who found their photos where no photographer would dare to go would enjoy the picture. Since facebook is social, I went ahead and made a contest based on the fact that I would be jogging in Vibram around 200km in a month. So, after uploading the pictures, racers would then tagged themself or a friend, they would be part of the lucky draw. So, the Vibram shoes were sponsored by Escapade Sports only if I finished the race and I decided to give them away. I hope the winners appreciate the pain I had to go through for their gain. I believe one thought or one action can start a revolution!
So, here is my revolution and the winner is...
