giveaway state of mind


Gooooooood Morning!


So, I [somehow] won some sweet swag from last Saturday's marathon.
The $50 gift card - - - well - - - I spent that 2 hours after the race. [sporting goods store]. yay!

However, I still have this sweet little number.





This 99.8% treadmill running girl can't really warrant having a "ROAD" ID when I basically run in place 5 out of 7 days.

I'm thinking I could benefit waaaaaaaaay more from something more like this


Or this:


So I am giving away a $15 certificate to "road ID".  Click here for more product information.

Rules/entry . . .

easy [being that I don't have a FB or twitter account] ;)

Two options:

1.  Tell me why you should get this road ID - why you need/want it.

OR

2.  Tell me a joke - yep, your best one.  I soooooo need a laugh today!

* * and of course --- you get extra credit if you are a follower. * *

Winner will be chosen Monday May 10th.

"I've fallen and I can't get up!"

Well, I already own a RoadID, but I really have my eye on the new "Elite" style... more sleek and stylish and you know, it's all about FASHION!

Omg, that medical alert old lady was so funny.

Reminds me of the 'where is the beef' lady.

gosh, I'm not good at listening to directions...

So, I need a road ID because I've been putting it off for a LONG time. I pretty much run mostly around gilbert / chandler on the main roads in the dark which bothers my wife. But, I haven't heard of a runner getting hit by a car on Ray Rd - yet, right?

A nurse at a nursing home notices a man sitting in the corner sad. The nurse walks up and ask the man what is wrong. The man replies "my private died"

"oh, I am sorry" said the nurse, but not thinking much more of it, she walks away.

Two days later, the nurse hears a scream and comes running down the hall to see the sad man walking around with his private hanging out of this pants.

The nurse says "what are you DOING?!?!, WHY is your private out?"

The man replies "I told you already, it died"

The nurse says "Yes I remember, but why is your private hanging out for everyone to see??"

The man responds "Todays the viewing"

Here is my joke. A story about me that I tell whenever golf comes up:

My wife was a pretty good golfer in HS / college (she was on the HS team). I also have a buddy who lost his arm in a farming accident when he was in the 6th grade. He shot about par - IN THE SIXTH GRADE. So, even now with one arm he shoots in the 80s.

One time the three of us all went out for a quick 9 holes and I proceeded to get SMOKED by a girl and a guy with one arm. Most.humbling.experience.ever.

I'm not that good at remembering jokes. But this is my moms fav.

Why do roosters wear there underwear on their heads?
Because that's where their peckers are.

Megan said...

I need a road id for when I ride my bike. I've got one for my running shoes. And I'm not a very good cyclist. One of these days I'm bound to fall off.

Tricia said...

I love Road IDs. I have one, but have been wanting to get one for my hubby who runs to work at the crack of dawn.

I really really really need this Road ID. One I live in the country so I am running in an area that is somewhat off the beaten path. (you know that place crazies could be). There aren't any cute neighboor hood house to pass or stop and get help either?

Also I am training for my FIRST marathon and that means longer miles and more time out on the road in the early morning and late evening.

H Love said...

OK I have two jokes. They are jokes I bring to you from 5th grade.

Why can't witches have babies?
Because the guys have "hollow" weenies.

Why can't gypsies have babies?
Because the guys have crystal balls.

Pam said...

I really need a Road ID! I mostly run on the highway that I live on, and I will need the ID to identify my body when I am a) shot for flipping the bird to someone for yelling arsehole comments or b) hit by a car and reduced to a greasy spot on the pavement.

Pam said...

And it's not a joke, but it's the funniest thing I've heard today. This old man (I'd guess early 80s) came into the post office and was telling me that he had to be getting home for lunch. He said, "If she ain't got lunch ready, I'm gonna slap the shit out of her. And if she's got lunch ready, I ain't gonna eat it. You gotta keep 'em on their toes." Then he proceeded to tell me ... "This morning I told her I wanted two eggs for breakfast. One scrambled and one fried... I had to slap the shit out of her. She scrambled the wrong one." LOL I love old people.

Sarah said...

I'm trying hard to think of my best joke. Hmmmm .....

Tara said...

Ok, I've been meaning to get one of these! Count me in!

I'm not very funny ( I'm a damn Accountant give me a break), so I guess I would need a road ID because I am on asthma meds and I have exercise induced allergies and I carry and epipen. I know...I'm messed up. Don't know why I run.

Tara said...

I'm a follower! Extra credit! :)

And BTW, congrats on your marathon from post below. Dude...that course looks tough! And those crepes look good.

MCM Mama said...

I suck at jokes...

I'm a follower. I could really use the road id because I run by myself 99% of the time, in a very urban (read lots of cars) area.

Meg said...

I'd love the Road ID because once, I ran at night, in the dark, tripped over my dog and fell face first on the asphalt. Yeah! I was okay but what if something had happened to me?
AND...a good joke a kindergartner told me today...

Why was the centipede late for school?
Because he was playing "this little piggy" with his baby brother!

Okay, you've GOT TO love that one!

Pick me! Pick me! Please!

EricaH said...

I need a road id..cause I don't have one. I won one recently but gave it to my hubs as he is a duathlete and I worry about him being out on the bike alone.

Quinton J said...

You know I follow. And I could really use a RoadID because sometimes on my long runs I forget who I am and where I live - and then my kids ask me why I was gone for SO long. Plus, I’m a recklessly fast runner. I got two speeding tickets on my last tempo run..(I'm fighting one of them...there's jus' no way I was going THAT fast).

RunningLaur said...

I think if I were passed out on the floor and woke up to that freaky punch handed guy trying to help me, it'd just make things worse. There'd a lot of computer-guy parts around from the flailing.

I could use a roadID because it's only matter of time until the desert heat takes me out during a run. Let's hope not any time soon.

Emily said...

If you need a running-related laugh, I suggest visiting the "One More Mile" website and checking out their running tees :)

My current form of identification is my ID duct-taped to my arm. sooo tacky haha. an upgrade would be nice.

Chris said...

I really could use this because I do most of my running solo!

I really need this ROAD ID for so many reasons. (1) A lady who walks our innocent looking country road had already been struck by a car, (2) I don't have a running buddy, this fact scares my husband to death, (3) I have a possible issue with my heart that paramedics may find useful if they find me in a ditch somewhere, (4) It would bring me and my family a huge peace of mind as I go traveling off to all these races alone where no one knows me.

I need a Road ID cause I live alone and run alone most of the time in a new city. It will help keep me safe!

with my asthma and enimia...running without a Road ID is just dumb!

Jeri said...

I asked for a Road ID from Santa and I never got one. :( Apparently my family doesn't value my safety and well being. Can that count as the joke?!?! :p

Jeri said...

just added you to my reader. :)
