Hey guys! I’m glad you enjoyed my Ironman final thoughts post. I hope you are having a great week so far. I have a treat for you today. I’m giving away a pair of Wahine Sport Running Sleeves. You have until next Thursday, December 29th to comment on this post for a chance to win.
Background story on these beautiful things:
At the Portland Marathon Expo, the hubs and I were wandering around trying to find a long sleeve shirt to buy since I was an idiot and forgot to pack a long sleeved shirt along with many other items. Anyway, I passed by the Wahine Sport booth, and these beautiful arm sleeves/gloves caught my eye. Since her stand was so popular, and we got there really late in the day, the owner was sold out of my size for these sleeves above (these are now in stock!!), and I ended up buying these gray ones. We chatted for a while, and I found out that Wahine means “woman” in Hawaiian. I handed her my card with my blog information on it, and mentioned that I would love to feature her product and possibly do a giveaway on my blog. I didn’t really expect to hear anything from her.
I LOVE these things. Not only are they comfortable, but they fit perfectly because they come in different sizes. Plus, they have a little pocket in each sleeve for chapstick, money, a key, etc. Love it!!! I wore them for the Portland Marathon.
I even wore them for my Ironman. When it got hot, I just pushed them down, and used them to wipe my snot and sweat on. I know it wasn’t very glamorous, but they are very useful when pulled down as well!
They have many more designs than just these so please check them out! Let’s support our small businesses. When the owner contacted me about doing a giveaway a few weeks ago, I was elated!! Plus, the owner walks the walk. She is a runner of many races!! She recently ran the Santa Barbara Marathon in November.
So, what do you have to do to get a pair of these beautiful AND USEFUL things?? If you haven’t already, read my last post about stepping out of your comfort zone and answer the following questions here on this post:
