In honor of the holiday shopping season officially kicking off, we’re giving away products from Triathlete magazine’s Holiday Gift Guide (on newsstands now). Check out the Day 11 giveaway below.

Day 11 (Monday, Dec. 3):

For day 11 of our 12 Days of Holiday Giveaways, we’re giving away a pair of Pearl Izumi Kissaki 2.0 running shoes ($130, The seam-free upper is an exciting improvement on Pearl’s lightweight, neutral, low-drop trainer/racer. The winner will also receive a Triathlete magazine race belt.

To win today’s giveaway, we’re looking for the most clever ways to entertain yourself on the trainer or treadmill (more clever than watching your favorite movie), and how you came up with that idea. Post your answer—in 100 words or less—in the comments below, and the editors will pick our favorite.

The entries much be on this post. Answers posted on the Triathlete magazine Facebook page will not count. Answers must be posted by Tuesday, Dec. 4 at Noon PST. The winner will be announced on this page by 5 p.m. PST the same day.

UPDATE: Congratulations to our winner Walter Cahall, who submitted the following idea for entertaining himself:

“I call them ‘cat attack intervals’ – during a rest interval on the trainer I whip out the laser pointer to get my three cats going with some high intensity pouncing. During their rest as I start my next interval, their anxious stares keep my rpms high and honest.”

Check back to for our final day of our 12 Days of Holiday Giveaways. We’ll be giving away a sweet backpack!

*Note: Please allow a few weeks for delivery, as the shoe will be shipped directly from Pearl Izumi, as long as shoe size is available.
