WTF Wednesday/Nike Sunglass Giveaway!!

It's time for another rousing edition of WTF Wednesday. 

1.  I ran 6 miles for the first time last week.  57:47 It's the longest distance I have ever gone.  I did it again last night.  57:33 Although I am very happy that I can do it, it was hard.  And long.  And sweaty.  (that's what she said....)  It is a perfect 6 mile loop that starts right at my house.  I cannot even begin to imagine going around that loop almost 4 times for a marathon distance.  I was spent with one loop.  How in the world do you people do 26.2 miles??  Kudos to you all, but WTF.

2.  I dumped on my bike for the first time the other day.  While standing still.  In front of a car.  I am still learning the shifting on my bike so I am not very good at it and I came to a rather steep hill and didn't shift in time, so I had to jump off and walk my bike up the last part of the hill.  I was standing at the top waiting for passing cars to go by so that I had a safe time to get back on and re-clip and not be in the sandy shoulder.  I clipped on my left foot and the started moving slowly to get my right foot clipped, but couldn't and then by the time I knew I wasn't going to get my right foot in, I was not moving at all and couldn't get my left foot out fast enough to catch myself.  Nice.  Toppled over and bruised my hip/ass and also my calf on the other leg.  This is kinda what I looked like:

Of course, a car was coming from the other direction and saw the whole thing.  I was wanting to die of embarrassment.  That's when you jump up as fast as possible, trying to look perfectly fine so that the car doesn't stop to help you.  Thank God they just kept driving.  WTF.

3.  I have some super sweet Nike Sunglasses to giveaway today.  They aren't the one I showed you the other day--my husband stole those ones...  Thankfully, I had two so these are what I'll be giving away:
Pretty cool huh?  This is a women's sunglass for running, tennis and other outdoor sports.  It provides 100% UVA and UVB protection.  Since they did not provide these for me for free, I'm not going to make a big deal about Nike and it's products. 

So to enter here's what you need to do:
1.  Follow my blog. +1 mandatory
2.  Tweet/FB/blog whatever about my giveaway. +1 for each
3.   Get someone else to enter +1 for each referral

That's it!  Deadline is 7/8.  So WTF are you waiting for??  Enter already!

BTW - Once you run 10 miles and then up to 13, you think 10 is a walk in the park. :)
