giveaway wednesday!

I'm super excited about my first giveaway: the sweet folks over at Ryder's sent me some fancy-pants sunglasses!  Take a look at their website - they have some pretty awesome gear.


I was able to try out a pair of these over the weekend at the tri:
I'm cooler in shades, yo.

These shades were actually pretty great - they didn't fog up in the heat, even as I sweated and dumped water on my head, and they stayed put under my bicycle helmet (even when I wiped out).  They have little grippers on the nose and above the ears, which helped them stay put.  I'm a big fan!  I usually don't run or ride in sunglasses, but I'm going to now.

Now the good stuff: they sent me two pairs to give away to you guys!  Awesome sauces!

I'll keep it simple....but with a twist.

The simple: Become a follower or tell me that you are and why YOU are awesome!  Leave a comment!
The twist: if you have left more than 5 comments on my blog in its lifetime (before 9am this morning), you get an extra entry.  I'll go through and figure out who those super cool folks with lots of unstructured free time are and add you in myself, you don't have to do anything.

I'll announce a winner next Monday morning.  Hooray for giveaways!

  3. Totally a follower! And I am awesome because I have a style that is all my own. I rock my skirts and socks with pride and a sweet pair of shades would complete up my awesomeness!

  4. I'm a follower and I'm awesome because I'm a former couch potato that somehow turned into a runner and I still haven't quit. How awesome is that?

  5. I'm a follower. I am awesome because I've always exercised but I didn't start runninmg until October of '09 and I was ready for a half mary by June of '10.

    I love to wear cute running outfits but I am lacking a good pair of sunglasses. I could really use them being as I live in south Texas and it is *very* hot and sunny here.

  7. You CLEARLY know I'm a stalker and don't need to go back to check how many comments I've left...

    Let's see. I'm currently awesome because I have a bruised jaw, a swollen face, a side braid, and I'm wearing shorts (that are possibly too short) to work today. It's like the 1980's punched me in the head.

  8. I am a follower and I am awesome, because like you, I cuss like I just stepped off an 18-wheeler. (hahaha, how do you like that one?) :) and like you, I have a dog, who's a golden retriever (okay, 1/2 golden, 1/2 diva poodle).

  9. I'm a follower and am awesome because I have an entire closet worth of clothes under my desk just in case I make a game-time decision to run/bike to work or go for a run/bike ride in the middle of the day. OK, and in case I spill on myself, which happens more often than I care to admit. I could keep extra sunglasses at work too!

  13. I am a follower ever since I saw a glowing recommendation from @RunnerGrrl96 on Follow Friday to follow you!

    How am I awesome? Let me count the ways...JK! I'd like to think I'm awesome because I love my job and I work really hard at it; I love to cook and try new recipes, I’m a budding blogger and of course because I love to run (and am starting training for my second marathon in a few weeks!).

  14. I just became a follower since I didn't know you had a blog!

    I am awesome because I hold down a full-time job, volunteer as an EMT 24hrs a week and still find time to train for runs with my two dogs. AND I survived a divorce this year!

  15. Ooh I've definitely left more than 5 comments. Whoop! I "follow" via Google Reader - does that count? Otherwise, I'm confused.

    I'm awesome because...I just got the job I was hoping for in CO *and* the apartment/house/thing that we loved is Ours! So, success all around!

    Have fun in Geooorgiaa!

  16. I'm a follower and I'm awesome because I wake up at 5am, 5 days a week to run or bike before the kids (3 boys) get up and then I head off to work. I'd love some new sunglasses!

  20. If you don't know of my awesomeness already, you clearly are not worthy of ever finding out.

  21. I am awesome, mostly because I read all of these running blogs about people who swim/bike/train/eat well every damn day while they also have 3.2 kids and jobs, volunteer for good causes, have perfect lawns and easily run ultras in sub-9 minute miles (neither of which I have EVER done in my life) and don't seriously lose my shit and just give up and watch Food Network and eat Dove bars on the couch.

  23. I'm amazing because I had a stroke, came back, trained 15-18 hours a week while working 2 jobs (58 hours a week) to pay medical bills, on top of going to school part time for my Masters degree, and just finished my first half Ironman after having surgery 4 months ago.

  24. I am awesome! Yes mam I am! in the last 6 months I have become a runner and I couldn't be happier with my new found energy and physical appearance. I have completed my first half marathon and am now in training for a full marathon this fall! Running is a passion and although there are days that I would rather lay around, I'm reminded of all the other awesome people out there who have made the choice to run, which motivates me even more. I've even become one of the girls I used to make fun of and just bought my first running skirt! Thanks for considering me for this giveaway :)
