Day 6 of a Fit Christmas

Monday brought a lot of fitness in Day 5.  What a way to start the week!  The random winner of a motivational sweat towel from Inperspire is... Twitter's @tonee78 who ran 2 miles yesterday.  Toni, please email me at runwithjess@comcast.net to claim your prize.

If you see me out running, chances are I have a BondiBand wrapped around my head.  Their headbands are comfortable, moisture-wicking and they don't slip off my head.  Available in hundreds of designs, colors and sayings, the headbands are also stylish!

My BondiBand collection... Yes, I'm addicted!


At 4" wide, the headband can be scrunched up, folded over or spread out to cover your forehead and whispy hairs.  This time of year I like that they give my ears a little protection from the cool winds, but yet not the full out warmth of winter hats. 


They also make a great base underneath my headlamp
so I don't have funky impressions on my forehead.


Recently, I had the chance to try out one of BondiBand's running hats.  The same dry-tech coolmax fabric as the heavy wicking headbands, these hats are comfortable covering your full head and ears.  As I make the transition into winter weather, this baby will be perfect in temps under 30 degrees.


The hats come in a variety of styles... regular, ponytail hole and even one for pigtails!


Just like the headbands, BondiBand hats come in a large variety of colors with the choice to have a printed design on the front or just plain.  Throughout the year, be sure to check back because they always offer something fun before each holiday...
Christmas hat on sale now for only $15 here

In Fit Christmas style, if you get your booty moving today, you can enter to win a BondiBand HAT!!  No excuses... make time for exercise today and keep those holiday pounds off.

BondiBand is also offering a special on their headbands for my readers...
