As of this morning, registration is still open for the Boston marathon. Yesterday the BQ-10 group got their chance to register and tomorrow the BQ-5 group can register. Then, as rumor has it, registration will close. I would be completely lying if I said I wasn’t jealous and envious (and a lot of I-may-want-to-steal-your-entry) of all the speedy bloggers that are already registered.
Moving on to something upbeat and fun: my first giveaway! A few weeks ago Kara, Philly native and creator of ChickBands, offered to send me a ChickBand to test out. ChickBands are running headbands backed with velvet so they won’t slip during a run. They also soak up all the nasty sweat. The verdict? Me like.
As you can see, the ChickBand did not move an inch. It was also comfortable (i.e., did not give me a headache). The fact that it didn’t give me a headache is impressive since I have a rather large noggin and big hair.
The ChickBand that Kara sent me sells for $8.00. A very reasonable price considering a thick SweatyBand sells for $18.00. Why pay more for the same headband?
Kara graciously offered to give away 3 ChickBands to lucky RTLR readers!
