living in the now

Still rambling about running. Sometimes other things.

Need sunglasses? Join us during #runchat

At 8 p.m. ET Sunday, Scott from iRunnerBlog and I have an awesome giveaway for #runchat on Twitter from Ryders Eyewear -- a pair of VTX Sunglasses. To be entered to win, all you have to do is take part in #runchat, a twice-a-month chat all about running moderated by me and Scott. The VTX from Ryders feature an interchangeable lens system that allows for versatility as conditions and activities change. The ultra-lightweight frames and anti-slip, hydrophilic nose pads keep them secure, while scratch-resistant lenses provide 100 percent UVA, B and C protection.

If you're unfamiliar with #runchat, here are the details. At 8 p.m. ET Sunday, Dec. 12, Scott and I will begin asking running-related questions on Twitter using the #runchat tag. Then the conversations just go. Answer our questions; re-tweet our questions if you'd like; re-tweet other people's answers that you like; and feed off other people's responses to create conversations. That's all. Really. It's that simple.

Scott and I both use TweetChat to follow the conversations -- that site makes it really easy to follow along. You can also create a #runchat column in HootSuite or TweetDeck, or create a #runchat saved search on regular old-fashioned Twitter. (Is Twitter old enough for something to be old-fashion yet?) Whatever you use, use the #runchat tag in each of your posts so we can follow the responses and to be eligible to win the sunglasses.

#runchat lasts an hour. We’ll post a new question every 5-10 minutes, depending on the nature of the conversations. All "official" questions will come from Scott (@iRunnerBlog) and me (@RunningBecause).
