Giveaway time

It’s Friday and I’m doing a giveaway…what could be better than that? So the lovely Scott of Outside PR sent me some goodies for me to give to one of my fabulous readers. Do you guys run with sunglasses? Ryders are great, because they’re made for athletes, are flexible, yet durable, super sporty in a cute way, and have 100% UV protection. I tend to run with a hat, but I’ve also gone out with these bad boys.

I like how I don’t feel like I’m running with sunglasses and the adjustable nose piece fits comfortably.

So who wants to win a pair for themselves? The winner will get a choice between these two.
The Drill:

The Vela:

The cool thing about these ones, is that they come with 2 different pairs of interchangeable lenses.

The winner will also get to try some Gu, Gu chomps, and Gu Brew.

So here’s how you a chance at winning!

First and mandatory entry: Add me to your Google reader (or let me know I’m already there)
– Check out the Ryders websiteΒ and let me know what you’d pick if you could have anything from their collection
-Do you usually run with a hat and/or sunglasses? Tell me why or why not
-Link my giveaway on your blog

Make sure you leave a separate comment for each and I’ll pick a winner at the end of the day on Wednesday!

    Pretty sweet give away! I normally don’t run with anything because I don’t like wearing hats and I don’t have any sunglasses that actually work as running glasses.

    You look like a badass in those glasses. And you’re (obviously) already on my reader. πŸ™‚

    One of my friends always wears a hat when she runs and I think she’s weird. In other words, I don’t wear a hat when I run. Sunglasses though? Sometimes. Depends on the sun-age.

    Yeah for a giveaway!

    I usually wear glasses if I am running a sunny route. My route lately is mostly shaded and I run in the evenings.
    Otherwise I wear shades and a visor πŸ™‚

    I’ve always been a fan of hats. Probably because I’ve gotten compliments on how good I look in them. Nah! They keep the flyaways under control, sun out of my eyes and, usually, don’t let sweat run into my eyes – not lately though cuz it’s so darn hot! Would like to try those Sweaty Bands to see how they work.

    I almost always run with hat/visor AND sunglasses. I really hate to have the pain of the sunlight in my eyes when I run. ALSO, now that it is hot and REALLY sunny, I have pretty deep tan lines on my face now, so I pretty much no longer go ANYWHERE without my shades on. They aren’t running glasses, but they work for now!

    ALWAYS visor and sunglasses in the summer. Gotta protect my face from sunburn (easier to wear a visor than grease up with sunscreen) and gotta protect my eyes from squinting.

    Also I find the specs help with creeper deterrence.

    I run with a visor sometimes, and sunglasses always. Visors make my head sweaty, so if it is super hot, I skip it. My only prob with sunglasses is the fogging issue. So, hopefully, I’ll win these πŸ˜‰

    I usually run inside so I don’t wear either, but when I do run outside I wear my sunglasses, but they are not athletic sunglasses, and so they fog up! Lame!
