It seems every time I run a race, half of the ladies are sporting a fun and flirty headband. Last May, when I went to the Flying pig marathon expo, I picked up my first non-slip headband and LOVED it. Well, my sister has recently launched her own headband company and sells the same product as all those other, but much more PRICEY headband companies. Her company is called Active Bands. <----- click link to visit their website
What Active Bands has to say.....
Active Headbands is a company started by a mom who loves to run and workout – We believe that all females no matter their age, weight or size can benefit from an active lifestyle. So, whether you are a person who lives to work out or works out to live. We are dedicated to you our friends, family, our customer. Our mission is to provide you with a quality product that will provide style, comfort, and best of all NO-SLIP! Every woman should feel the freedom that comes from working out without having those irritating little hairs in your face!!
Our Headbands are hand-crafted by individuals who care about our customer's style and the quality of the product. We would like you to know that each Active Headband you receive from us contains a little love, and hope that you can enjoy a more comfortable, NO-SLIP work out. Thank you for visiting us!

and I am not exaggerating when I say.... "They are the best headbands and truly don't slip." Plus they are so affordable, you could buy one for each day of the week... ha, or one for each outfit.
Are you one of those people, like me, that likes to cheer for the underdog? Or support local business'? Well then why don't you check Active Bands out and see for yourself how amazing they are. I have sported an active band in each of my races this year.... including my 50 miler back in March, but I never took of my BUFF, which was worn to keep my ears warm. But I assure you, I had an active band on underneath the BUFF.

**On a side note..... Y-ouch. I set out for a 3-4 mile recovery run this morning and only made it 2 miles. It was already hot and humid... my first mistake. My blisters... or should I say Scabs, were rubbing and hurting something fierce. My legs were heavy and tired... I sound like such a whiner.... sorry. I plan on trying again in the morning and crossing my fingers for 4-6.
Now THIS is a good idea!
