Bondi Band News

I know I said I was going to post my Alamo 13.1 race recap today, BUT the professional photos are not up yet. We get them for free as part of our race registration fee, so I definitely want to put them in the recap before posting it. I apologize for the delay!

Today I want to share with you all some fun and exciting news. I have been chosen as a representative for the Bondi Band team! I will be helping them out with different race expos on some weekends. My first one is this Saturday and Sunday for the Biggest Loser Run/Walk Half Marathon and 5K in Austin, Texas. If you are running or know someone who is, come say hi and check out the awesome merchandise!

If you have not heard of Bondi Band before, they are an incredible company with products that really work. Their main focus is headbands created specifically to wick away sweat from your face during a work out. I wore my first one for the Woodlands Marathon earlier this month and was ecstatic when I found that I never had to wipe away any sweat from my eyes throughout the entire race! They are cute, comfortable and most importantly, functional.

The company’s story began when the founder created her first headband while vacationing at Bondi Beach in Australia. Upon her return home, she perfected the product, started selling it, and grew the business. Now they have expanded their line of merchandise to compression wear and other accessories with a huge range of colors and fun designs for all active individuals!

My favorite product that they have is, hands down, the moisture wicking head bands with fun sayings on them. They are a great way to show your personality while working out!

Rockin’ one of my Bondi Bands at the marathon – it says:
“Mirror Mirror on the wall
Who’s the FASTEST of them all”

My friend Long and I both wearing our Bondi Bands – his says:
”If found on ground
please pause my Garmin”

If you would like to explore their website, you can click HERE. And if you don’t find exactly what you are looking for, you can design your own product HERE. You can also have bands customized specifically for a group of people such as wedding parties, sporting teams, schools, charity events, and more! Click HERE to create a custom Bondi Band!

Happy shopping!

    1. Thanks! Agreed - I hate the saltiness sting from it, especially when I'm wearing contacts. Bondi Bands are a lifesaver!

  3. I've seen lots of Boni Bands but prefer the Sweaty Bands. Customizing can be really fun :)

    1. Sweaty Bands are definitely great as well - very pretty! I like Bondi Bands, though, since they are a little more functional for me!

  9. Congratulations!! I can NOT wait to read the Alamo race report but this is fantastic news, so I can handle the wait hahah.

    I've never worn one but I think I'd definitely like it for a cooler race as I don't like wearing hats/having my ears get cold. SUCH cute sayings!
