The Color Run Just Got Brighter!!! {a Giveaway}

Oh man, I’m super bummed I won’t be able to run The Color Run this year. SUPER BUMMED. Last year, I learned about it after it passed my city and this year, I for some reason didn’t check the date and scheduled a commitment preventing me from going.

😦

I don’t usually do “fun runs” but if I’m going to do one, I want it to be amazing. And I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about The Color Run. And from a good source too!

So what am I missing out on? I’ll lamentably inform you.

This year, The Color Run is calling 2015 its Shine Tour, which to me sounds like color+bling(shine) which of course equals awesomeness.

Is that....glitter?!? YES, that IS glitter!!!!!

Is that….glitter?!? YES, that IS glitter!!!!!

From what I’ve heard from friends who have run this race, they all say that it’s a stress free environment where no one is at the starting line staring at their watches waiting to press the start button. No, this is a race that is all about the fun. And sometimes races need to be just about that. I think that is what the appeal of this race is to me. It’s not a mud run or an obstacle course, “fun” races that would undoubtedly stress me out in some way. The Color Run is a race I could do with even my non-running friends because it’s all about having a good time while still getting some bling at the end. (Because really, what’s a race without bling?)

The Swag:
1. custom race tee
2. gold finisher’s medal
3. tricolor headband
4. brand-new shine packet
5. shiny tattoos
(why am I not doing this again?)

Ultimate SWAG

Ultimate SWAG

Throughout the course there’s spots for photo ops with friends and get this, a Sparkle Zone. Runners finish with a bang as there’s a confetti cannon waiting at the end. It all just sounds like an absolute blast.

And even though I won’t be able to go, TWO of you can!!

Bondi Band Giveaway!!

The opportunity came for me to try out a Bondi Band after hearing so many good things about it. It’s takes sweat like no other headband, has cool prints and colors, it’s stretchy and breathable–I’d love it for sure, right?

Well, the band itself is great. It did all those things other people said it did and I love the one I have.

Love ya, Salt!

Love ya, Salt!

But deep down, I know that I’m more of a visor girl.

That being said, I’ve tried sooo many types of head bands from Wal-mart types to online boutiques and I really liked the Bondi-Band and do sport it on occasion; it’d be the one I’d recommend if people asked me about a head band that can take sweat. It does. I’ve tested it on runs in my Arizona heat.

If you check out their website, you’ll find a plethora of prints, colors, and funny sayings. You can find one that fits you and your personality no doubt. AND, you can use the coupon code SWEATPINK for 10% off your entire order (excludes Bargain Bin items, Custom items, and Build Your Own) at checkout.

But if you’re feeling lucky, Bondi Band was gracious enough to send me a couple of headbands to giveaway–hope you like tiaras!
