Expo pic & product review

Quick follow-up post.

First up, the expo pic I promised. The more I think about it, I don't think there is a pre-race pic to post. I think I hallucinated that one into existence. My bad. Expo:

Second, the product review. At the recommendation of Morgan over at Redhead Running, I tried the Bondi Band. I was searching for a reliable running head band that wouldn't pop off the back of my head. The rubberized Goody ones are ok for short runs, but I've had trouble with them for anything that would fall into the "endurance running" category. So what did I think of the Bondi?

Worth the money. It wicks. It doesn't come off. 13.1 this morning and it did not budge. Sure, it makes me look a little like a pirate if it isn't folded over, but it works. Plus, it comes in a wide array of colors. I also really like that the bottom of it is sewn together so that it isn't crazy wide under your ponytail/hair. I will be ordering more! I was advised that the solid colors work slightly better than the prints due to a difference in fabric, so I'll be sticking with solids. Go rock some cute headbands, girls!

I will need to check out those headbands!! I work the swoopy bangs and that will work like a charm! Plus all my Goody ones are getting too stretched out. Great review!
