Run Naked Giveaway ...

I want you to Run Naked.

Got your attention, didn't I?

OK, so I don't really want you to run without your clothes on. If for no other reason than it's getting really cold outside and I don't want you to get frostbite. (There are other reasons too, but I'm sure you can figure those out yourself.)

So, you probably want to know what I mean, right? Well, it's simple. I want you to be seen when you run. And a surefire way to do that is to Run Naked.

Run Naked Sports is an apparel company, attempting to make reflective gear more fashion forward and fun. Here's what they have to say ...

"Why Run Naked? Comfort. Freedom. Safety.

When you are running in low light conditions, bits of reflection on your shoes usually doesn’t cut it. Reflector vests can seem like a punishment of discomfort. Reflection will only protect us if we wear it. Run Naked Sports is making reflection fun.

Be seen. Be free. Be safe."

What more could a runner want?

Personally, I run at least half of my weekly miles in the dark. I already don a headlamp, but I'm not about to wear a reflective vest. It's just not my style. So, when I stumbled upon Run Naked Sports, I was pumped. Simple designs. Extreme visibility. A match made in heaven. I wanted to Run Naked.

So, I contacted Joan (the woman behind Run Naked Sports), who greeted me with fantastic customer service and was nice enough to let me test her product. She sent me the women's short sleeve tee (black) in a large (medium would have fit, but I sized up since I fell between sizes). Here I am before an early morning run, last weekend (I tried my best to keep the reflection to a minimum for the picture) ...

Super cute, right?

I can not speak highly enough of this shirt. It is ultra-comfortable (I've been wearing it when I'm not running, too). And it is MASSIVELY reflective. The slightest bit of light is all it takes for you to be seen. And that's something we all NEED as the days get shorter and shorter.

Now, for the fun stuff.

Thanks to Joan at Run Naked Sports, ONE lucky reader will win their own Run Naked tee (available in both Men's and Women's cut). Here's how to enter (separate comments please!):

1. Become a follower and leave me a comment to let me know.
2. "Like" Run Naked Sports on Facebook HERE and leave me a comment to let me know.
3. Visit Run Naked Sports website HERE and leave me a comment to let me know what color shirt you would choose if you won.
4. Leave me a comment to let me know what you currently wear when you run in low-light conditions.
5. Repost this giveaway on your blog, Facebook, Twitter, etc. and leave me a comment to let me know.

FIVE (5) BONUS ENTRIES: Email me at racingwithbabes (at) yahoo (dot) com with a picture of you in your current reflective gear. Be creative. I'll pick my favorite and send them a surprise.

Entries will be accepted until Saturday, November 20. Winner will be randomly selected and announced on Sunday, November 21.

Marlene said...

I think I'd have to go with black since it looks so slick on you!

Marlene said...

Honestly, I am not so good with dressing safely in the dark. I don't own a headlamp, I don't own a vest. Some of my clothes have reflective elements but not enough.

I'm fortunate to usually be running with people in the dark so I just try to stick with someone who is all lit up. :)

I don't have any reflective gear, so I just wear the same ol' same ol' in low light conditions. This means I've had to change my routine since the time has changed! I used to come home after work, chill for a few, then head out and run from my house. Now I have to take my running clothes to work with me, change there, and head straight into town where there are streetlights and run there.

Jodi H said...

When I run in the dark I wear a white shirt (long sleeve or short sleeve depending on weather). If it is really cold I wear my dark blue windbreaker that does have some reflective strips on it...not enough for me to really be seen and I wear a blinking LED light (that I got at the Pittsburgh 1/2 marathon in my goody bag) on the arm band of my ipod.

Jodi H said...

Will be posting on my blog in just a few minutes. Have to figure out how to get it on my side bar!

I wear a Nathan reflective vest. Yes, it's dorky, but I do 95% of my runs in the dark, and I'd rather be dorky than dead.

I like the gray women's T.

Christina said...

I am a new follewer - holla!

Christina said...

i would love to have the grey T

Christina said...

my current reflective wear varies. sometimes i am lazy and it's just the reflectors on my shoes... sometimes i get fancy and use my neon yellow hat with the non working flashing light... sometimes i wear my neon yellow short sleeve running shirt...and sometimes i wear my reflective vest. never do i wear all of the reflective stuff at once - maybe i should. ;0

I like the grey too because the words show up best when it's daylight... (the v-neck version is uber-cute!!!)

Lesley @ racingitoff.com said...

Would it be awful to admit that I run at 5am often and all I have is the reflective Nike swoosh on my hat and the reflectiveness on my Brooks shoes... sad, I know. I do try to wear white, though.

I usuall run barefoot with nothing on but a pair of shorts. I guess the only thing I have to reflective is might white butt if I were to moon a car. :)

Kadie said...

I actually have not acquired a lot of reflective gear yet for running since this is my first year, but I do have a lot of BRIGHT colors. Not the same thing, I know, but better than black!

Right now I wear my orange reflective vest, reflective sleeves (that are too big so they drive me nuts), and a blinky light on my waist band.

If it's completely dark, I add a headlamp and flash light.

If I expect to finish as the sun is coming up, I add my bright yellow sunvisor to shade my eyes as well as an extra measure of bright obnoxious color to make myself visible.

I'm awful and don't wear any reflective gear. Eek! I know.... The good news is that I very very rarely run when it's not light out, and when I do I am on a trail away from vehicles. If necessary, I default to the trusty headlamp. :)
