Hair Candy Headband Review

Last night I wasn't able to meet up for speed work in St. Louis.  Of course....life got in the way!  I didn't let this discourage me, I just made alternate plans.  I got in my running clothes right after work, and after I got my son down to bed around 7:30pm, I headed to the local track to do my own speed work.  I actually got the training plan from the running website that I would have done in St. Louis, and did it by myself.  I used my Garmin to track my exact distance and time, but used my old heart rate monitor watch for timing.  The plan called for 6x800.  Each one had to be done in no longer than 7 minutes, before you started the next 800.  I needed to get in 4.5 miles so I did two warm up laps, 7x800, and then two cool down laps.  I am really starting to like speed work, and am really getting the hang of how to do it!  I was a sweaty mess when I was done!!
Because I had a little bit more time to plan my outfit, I decided to try out a new headband I had received a week or so ago from Emily at Deshler Designs.  She was nice enough to mail me a really cute Hair Candy non-slip headband in black with white polka dots.  Sooo freakin cute, and will go with EVERYTHING!!!  I put it on and headed out.  I really liked the way it fit, and looked, and during the whole 4.5 miles, I didn't think a second thought about it.  Here I am with it in before my run:


And here I am afterwards....

Still in the same place...I can tell you it worked great!  Deshler Designs offers sooo many different options of headbands from something simple like mine, to really bright and colorful!  They come in both thick and thin options, and for a great price.  You can check her shop out HERE.  What a great addition to any girls running drawer!
Thanks again Emily for the great headband...I will for sure use this on many more runs to come!!

Great job getting that speed work in! I have one of Emily's headbands and I LOVE it!! It never moves, always stays in place!

The headband is very cute, but your smile is fantastic!! Terrific news that you're enjoying speedwork, it's a workout I've learned to love.
