The “My Favorite Things” Giveaway: Bondi Band

**This contest is now closed**
Well you know I couldn’t have a list of favorites and not include my super-favorite, the Bondi Band.
I love the Bondi Band SO.MUCH. I think I am their biggest ambassador, I swear. Maybe they’ll give me a job or hire me as their spokesperson.
What is a Bondi Band? These are very slim, snug-fitting headbands that wick your massive amounts of sweat from your gargantuan cranium whilst exercising in the heat.
I suffer from migraines and I have quite a few triggers, including red wine tight headbands and hairbands. So when I found Bondi Band last year at the Gasparilla Half-Marathon, I was hopeful but skeptical.
But it not only wicked away my sweat, it was snug but not too snug so as to cause a headache. I now am the proud owner of FIVE Bondi Bands, but one of the things I love most about them are their sayings. I have one with a shark on it that says “Om Nom Nom” which I find brilliant because of my fear of sharks and having to constantly do open water swims. It’s almost like I could never get eaten because I am making fun of myself with this headband. It’s like shark repellant.

But my favorite is: SHUT UP AND RUN. Because I am a huge fan of mantras to help me get through my workouts and this one really helps me nix the complaining and the negative inner monologue and just allows me to go on my merry way. It is especially helpful during a triathlon when I am getting off the bike, do not yet have my running legs on and instead have concret stumps that were once my bike legs, and running feels like the very last thing they want to do.

And at this last triathlon that I did on Saturday, I discovered even a new use for Bondi Band!
When I take two waters, one to drink and one to pour over my head, the Bondi Band retains some of the cool water and keeps my head cooler for longer than it would if it were just my plain old head. It also helps shield the sun from me. If I haven’t convinced you yet of its sheer awesomeness, I shall GIVE one to you to prove it. (Well, one of you, anyway.)

Plus look at how stinkin’ cute our Team Shrinking Jeans looks wearing them! (That’s us in San Diego, running with sisters from the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans for Team In Training in June.)

So here are the rules:
  • Leave me a comment here about whether or not you’ve tried Bondi Band.
  • For another entry, follow me here at Average Moms Wear Capes!
  • For yet another entry, become a fan of Average Moms Wear Capes on Facebook right there on my sidebar on the left!
  • And finally, for another entry, tweet or blog about the giveaway and leave the link in the comments! Whichever one. I’m not picky.

Please leave a separate comment for each entry! Yep, four chances to win! But only 24 hours! This giveaway closes at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time TONIGHT! At 12 a.m. Tuesday, I will be announcing a NEW giveaway, so come back!

  39. I was recently (as in about a week ago) introduced to Bondi Bands. Another runner on twitter was raving about them, so I thought I’d give them a try. As an avid visor-wearer, I was a little timid to stray from my usual running apparel, but I decided to buy one and see how I liked it. I wore it for the first time on my Saturday run and not only did it keep my hair out of my face, but it wicked away an impressive amount of sweat! I’d love to add another band to my collection. Thanks for doing this giveaway! – Mandy (@girltrndrunner)

  40. Right before I got my first BondiBand I learned just how much it hurts when sweat gets in your eyes.

  41. I subscribed in my reader…does that count?!?

  42. Wow! 50 comments already? I don't have one YET but I want one. My only hesitation has been – will it slip and slide and will it give me a migraine? (which you answered!) :)

  43. Hi Christie, your site looks neat. Found you on MBC and am following now. Come visit me at my blog?
