Halo Headband - 12 Days of Christmas Day 9 #giveaway

A few weeks after I started running, I had Lasik surgery done. I was 9 years old when I started wearing glasses and 12 years old when I popped in my first pair of contact lenses. Deciding to get Lasik was the best decision I made. Everything was perfect until the first time I went running post surgery. I learned very quick that contacts shielded my eyes from the sweat stinging them.

To be honest, that first run without contacts was a total nightmare. I never experienced this sensation before and thought my eyes were going to burn out of my head. A bit dramatic but the truth. I expressed this concern to my best friend, who laughed and told me to order a Halo Headband. That's where the love affair began.

What makes Halo so special? They are made with Dryline fabric, a high performance material that quickly evaporates moisture so you stay dry and comfortable. The haeadband has a Sweat Block seal, which prevents sweat from getting into your eyes. It is lightweight, durable and abrasion resistant and will not lose it's shape or form. It controls odor, wicks away prespiration from the body and dries quickly.
I have worn a Halo Headband product nearly everytime I have gone out for a run. I own multiple colors and versions from the brand and my new favorite product is my Pink Halo Sport Visor which I recently wore for 13.1 without having to adjust it once.
Even at the ING NYC Marathon, my halo visor trecked 26.2 miles with me. I did not wear the visor during the marathon but had it secured to my water belt.
I attached Minnie ears to my black Halo Pullover headband, which helped the Minnie Ears stay secure for 13.1 miles, they did not bother me at all.
I also wore my Halo Pullover headband under my Jesse costume which prevented sweat coming into my eyes from the very hot hat. Thank goodness as this hat found it's way to a trash can around mile 3, Halo saved me from a potential bad hair day.
I attached reindeer antlers to my Red Halo Pullover headband for my first half marathon, once again - the decorative attachments stayed secure thanks to my headband.
Halo Headbands have been with me through my entire running journey with me and I am very happy to be giving away a product of the winners choice as part of my 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway!
