Just Call Us "The Bondi Band Family"
Yes, I am OBSESSED with Bondi Bands. What started as "trying one out" at the 2008 Chicago Marathon Expo, became an obsession. And, they have kind of become my trademark. So many of YOU love them and why not? They are fashionable AND functional. Once I chopped my hair off after Little Dude (kid #2) was born (I got about 18 inches of long locks cut off -- ouch), I was looking for something to replace my baseball cap. I wanted something that kept the sweat out of my eyes (I always had a problem with my eyes burning after a long run; even with hats) and something that kept my hair from bouncing around. My hair was too short to pull back or even the sides up. Bondi Bands were an awesome discovery for me. Now I have a huge basket full of them in our home gym.
I almost always have one to match my running outfits. I even try to match when I'm doing all of my solo treadmill running downstairs on the dreadmill. Yep!
They are fabulous and ALWAYS stay in place for me. The fabrics can differ from style to style. But, I haven't had a problem with the different fabrics.
I have all of these .... and want more .....
Anyone want to do some early Mother's Day shopping for me?!?!?!?! Start shopping here.
I never EVER thought my husband would try them out, but as he was training for Ironman last year, Bondi Band let him try some out (the plain ones here) and he fell in love with them too. I though that he may test them out on the treadmill, but never outdoors. I was wrong -- he even sported one at Ironman, on the run! He even has buddies that are sporting them now, too. So, don't think they're just for chicks. Here's his growing collection ......
As Little Diva has started some kids races, I've let her join in the excitement with a Bondi Band purchase at some of the race expos she's attended. Knowing how big her shoe collection and assortment of Limited Too outfits, I'm sure she will have quite the collection, too, someday ...
It's gotten so bad that Little Dude (age 2) always has to sport them when I'm working out. We saw Rebecca's booth at the Disney Princess Half Marathon Expo and he yelled, "Bondi Bands" in excitement!!!!!
In the first photo, I'm sporting this awesome Marathon Mama ringer that I purchased last year off of Cafe Press. You can snag it here.
