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
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.
So I just SHUT UP AND RUN.
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.)
