Well, did you survive Thanksgiving? I think I’m still trying to rouse myself from yesterday’s turkey coma. Oh, L-tryptophan, you get me every year. I cooked the full spread yesterday (no pictures…sorry) and then Jody, his grandmother, her boyfriend, and I commenced trying to eat everything in sight.
I hope you that had a wonderful Thanksgiving with family or friends (or both) and remembered to give thanks for the blessings in your life. I love that we have a specific day each year to remind us to be grateful, both for the good and the not so great. Today, I’m thankful for a fridge full of leftovers and the madness that is known as Black Friday. Oh, I’m not going shopping. I’m just excited because nobody will be in the gym tomorrow. That means I have free range of all the machines! It’s the little things in life that make me happy.
In lieu to doing a full Turkey Day recap, I mean there’s only so many turkey shots a person can look at, I want to break from the norm and talk to y’all about a product I recently fell in love with…..Handana!
I came across Handana last month through another blog (I’m sorry I can’t remember which blog) and I just knew I had to try it. The concept is simple yet so genius! It’s a high performance fashionable sweatband that wraps around your wrist and the palm of your hand. I’m not one to contact companies so I trepidatiously sent out an e-mail offering to do a product review. Much to my surprise they responded and agreed – yay!!
We also sent some tweets back and forth and Handana was so sweet with offering words of encouragement on my (then) upcoming marathon. It’s not too common to find a great product AND fantastic customer support.
I got my super cute Handana about a week before the marathon and took it out for a test drive right away.
I don’t know about y’all, but the minute I start running, I turn into a snotty, sweaty mess. Seriously….It’s gross…. I’m constantly using the palm of my hand to wipe sweat off my face which in return makes my skin breakout. It was so nice on the run having that fleecy layer of fabric to wipe my sweat away with.
Handana is completely made in the US (score!) and comes in lots of colors and several different sizes. The one that I was sent is just a bit big for my hand (I have average to smallish sized hands) so I would recommend you ladies getting either the small or skinny small. I’ve washed it several times and it still looks brand new. Plus, at only $15 it’s a total bargain; I’ve paid that much for less functional gear. Hello Christmas in 4 weeks….Just thought I’d remind you. 🙂
If you’re wanting to try Handana, I whole heartedly recommend it, and not just for runners, it’s great for all athletes! Annnnnnnd if you keep an eye on their Facebook or Twitter pages you can snag a good deal; they post discounts pretty often. Now for the disclaimer: I received this product in exchange for a review; however, all of the opinions in this review are my own. I will never give a positive review on something unless it warrants it.
Happy Black Friday y’all! If you’re out there in the chaos, I hope you find everything you’re looking for!
Question: Are you a Black Friday shopper? What are some of the best deals you’ve come home with?
