Product Review (and GIVEAWAY!) for Runningluv.Runningluv has generously provided me with a free sample to use and review and will send one of my lucky readers one of their own.
A fellow sole sister first casually mentioned "Runningluv" to me while I unceremoniously rubbed my nose from my elbow to wrist. I know. Classy. This is also the running partner who has had to provide me with a tissue mid run or post run on a couple of occasions.
My nose is a leaky faucet made worse when I run.
Runningluv to the rescue! Runningluv is a lycra band that fits around your hand and wrist with a bamboo/organic cotton terry blend towel-and-tissue attached.
The lycra band is moisture wicking and a very light material. It is very comfortable and easy to forget about while running.
The "towel-and-tissue" is soft and I love the bright colors offered. My "running color" is yellow, so I LOVE the festive yellow one I used on my last race (a 10K last weekend). It did take me a couple miles to get used to the towel wrapped around my hand, but I soon forgot about it and was glad to use it in these freezing January weather runs (which makes my nose even more snotty).
You can wrap it around your hand and tuck the tail under the lycra band or unfold the towel as pictured above for more surface area. I need to work a bit on my tucking technique, but it is fairly simple.
We've all had a reason or two to need something like this on a run...
Your nose drips or runs (like mine).
You sweat (or glisten, or sparkle... whatever you call it, you'd like to wipe it off your face).
Your eyes water (or you're crying in joy because you smashed an old PR).
Your sweet (and messy) kids are on the run with you and need a napkin-tissue-towel.
Your Garmin is fogged up (or covered in precipitation like mine from the lovely Oregon rain) and needs wiped clean.
What would you use yours for?
