Sweaty Bands Giveaway

Tonight was a great night for a run in Minnesota, not too humid, a little breeze in the air. Perfect for marathon training (I had hills to do), and also the perfect time to try out a new running accessory, Sweaty Bands.

Sweaty Bands describes their product as the following, "Sweaty Bands are the ultimate sports and fitness headband, uniquely designed for women and girls who want to show their style, even when they sweat a while!"

The people over at Sweaty Bands sent me over a sample pack with two of their headbands to try out, so tonight I put this one on before I headed out on my run.

If you're like me, I'm always looking for a good headband to try and hold back my fly aways on a run or working out in general, and one that won't have me adjusting it every five minutes. I've tried so many brands, but still haven't found one that is perfect, and lately have been resorting to bobby pins with a lot of hairspray, but then the pesky side hairs are blowing in the wind by Mile Two.

Upon first putting on the sweat band, I found it hard to get on because only the bottom part is elastic. It was a bit awkward to get on my head, and I had to readjust it, but once it was on there, it felt great, not too tight at all.

I set out on my run, and I have to say, I was impressed. I totally forgot I was even wearing the Sweaty Band. I never even adjusted it once, even when a five minute downpour decided to shower me. It felt comfortable!

I was wearing the thicker of the two sweaty bands, and upon arriving home, I did see that the back of the headband looked a little like it was jetting off the back of my head. But, when it comes to running, I'm all about function more than fashion.

Plus, I also have this skinnier version of the Sweaty Band to try as well.


The good people at Sweaty Bands also gave me a sample pack of headbands to share with one of you! One thicker and one regular sized Sweaty Band to help keep your hair under control during your workouts.
