i've been needing/wanting a pair of running-sunglasses for awhile now. i already wear a hat, but i often still find myself squinting.
last thursday i came back from surgery and promptly fell asleep for a couple hours. i woke up, felt ok for the most part and got on the computer to catch up on blog reading. i then decided it would be a great time to do some online shopping. perhaps not the best idea when you are recovering from anesthesia and on pain meds? oops.
enter: rudy project. i've really been wanting to indulge in a pair of rudy sunglasses for quite awhile. i know it's a great investment in my eyes and i'll get a lot of use out of them since i do actually run, but i had been having a hard time bringing myself to spend $200 on sunglasses. (i'm so unfashionable/cheap, even my "regular" sunglasses are like $15 ralph lauren.)
the drugs took over my credit card and away i went. thankfully, rudy project is offering a sweet deal until september 1st! it was very easy for me to rationalize spending $200 on the sunglasses and getting all the other gear free.
the free gear deal includes a pair of sunglasses, spare pair of lenses, cycling helmet (or snow helmet), book- or gym- bag, hat and t-shirt. a pair of rudy project sunglasses & spare lenses can easily run you $230 alone so this is quite a bargain at $199.99 plus $19.99 s&h.
but wait, there's more!
follow rudy project on twitter @rudyprojectna and enter the code "ontwitter" when you checkout to save $20 (free shipping/handling essentially). don't forget, this deal ends september 1st.
i hope it doesn't rain this afternoon so i can take my new rydon shades out for their first run. they've got to be good - the usa triathlon team wears rudy!
tomorrow may be saturday, the day google reader gets backed up with unread blog posts, but you're probably gonna want to make an exception and stop by! i have some exciting news :)
