Go Headband Review and Giveaway

Go Headband is a company run by a single mom named Kat. Kat is a long distance runner, she has run five marathons and one ultra marathon. She started running three years ago (and like me) is addicted! She has been through a lot in the last few years and running is her therapy. Kat started Go Headband last year. She runs 15-20 miles on Saturdays and sweats a lot, even in cold weather so she developed her headbands. They are made from a mositure-wicking fabric and there is also a small plastic strip sewed onto the front of the headband to prevent it from slipping. Go Headband works with the American Cancer Society and created "cancer sucks" headbands for the Chicago marathon runners. She also works with other charities including the American Heart Association. She does custom orders for run clubs and soccer teams.

Go Headband carries several types of headbands and running products. The headbands that she carries are bandanas, narrow style, winter headbands and the regular style. The headbands come in various colors and in solid or screen printed. They are also for both men and women. They can also be cleaned by washing them in the washing machine.

13.1 Light Brown Screen Printed Headband

Navy Blue Solid Headband

Blue Narrow Headband Just Finish

Slate Blue Polartec Winter Headband

Bandana Headband Forest Green

Go Headband also carries Hydration Packs. Hydration Packs are handheld and carry a water bottle. They have a padded handle and a small side pocket. The Hydration Packs are machine washable and when they are empty can be used as a sweat rag.


Handheld Hydro Pack- Brown Scrolls

I was sent a regular headband in blue with "Runner Mom" screened printed on the front. I wore it for my last long run on Saturday. I ran eight miles in 35 degree weather. Believe it or not I did sweat even in the cold weather. My head started sweating about two miles into my run. I felt the sweat but it did not bother me because it was caught in the headband and it did not get in my eyes. The headband worked great and it did not slip. I have tried other headbands before, but none have ever worked for me. The cloth headbands that I have used before have always slipped off and the plastic headbands are just not comfortable and give me headbands (plus they do nothing for sweat). I really liked using the headband and would recommend it to other runners or for just working out.

I like the 26.2 light pink. What a great idea! I ran 22 miles last weekend and had to stop mid-run to get the sweat out of my eyes, wearing a headband like this would have been perfect!
