Injury Update - YES The Doctor Told Me To

Image
Just wanted to give a quick update for anyone who might not have already heard. I went last week for a follow-up. I was actually in a lot of pain, as much pain as when the injury began. The x-ray did not show any fractures, BUT I was told that I could still have a fracture. I will need a bone scan or MRI to completely rule out any fractures. What did show up, however,

Stay In Place Or Slip? Bolder Band Review And Giveaway

Full Disclosure: I received products free of charge for the purpose of providing a review. My opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

When I'm shopping for a headband, the first thing that I usually want to know is - Will the headband stay in place or is it going to slip off of my head? Then I want to know if it's actually going to help with keeping the sweat out of my eyes.

Let me introduce you to the Bolder Band.



My first thought was "wow, this is really a cute headband." But what I really wanted to know was is it going to stay put. And about a mile into the run, it slipped. But, if you notice the placement of the band, you will see that I'm not really wearing it where I should be. I had it too far back on my head. I should have checked out their video on the best way to wear the bolder band. 

Once I moved it down during the run, it did not slip, it stayed put, and it felt great. I also have a small head, and there is one size smaller than the one that I am wearing. 

I wore it for a 12 mile run, and of course I was drenched with sweat. But the Bolder Band did a great job of keeping the sweat out of my eyes. And another thing that I liked was that by the time I got home from my run, the Bolder Band was almost completely dry. Say what?!? With some of my other headbands that I wear, they seem to hold the sweat for quite some time, and it takes them awhile to dry. With the Bolder Band, it was actually dry, and honestly I could have worn it around town to help hold my hair back. 

I'm not exactly the fashionista, but I would wear Bolder Bands other than just for exercise. They are versatile, and they work.


But don't take my word for it. I'd like to give away one Bolder Band so that you can try it too.

  1. I have always wanted to try one of these bolder bands. I have the hardest time getting other bands to stay put... maybe I'll give one of these a try.

  3. I'd love to try this headband. If it's too hot I'm inside on my elliptical sweating into my eyes. If I'm outside on the trails in Northern VA (W&OD is really good) I'm sweating in my face and can't ever find a headband that works and wicks away sweat.

  5. I'd love to try these! I can't seem to find a headband that fits... they either slide/pop off in about 2.5 seconds, or give me such a headache that I take them off myself! I'm just now trying to get into jogging, and would love this as motivation!
