Note from the mamas: Congratulations to Jerri, winner of the Fleet Feet gift certificate!
Happy Monday, mamas! This week’s giveaway is going to make your Monday much better because it involves shopping and new, cute workout clothes, courtesy of our friends at Fleet Feet Sports in Fayetteville. The winner of this week’s giveaway will get a $125 gift card to use on Nike apparel and she’ll also get to choose a Sweaty Band headband to go with her new clothes. Score!
Let’s face it — you feel better about working out when you have nice workout gear that makes you feel good. Sometimes the old, ratty t-shirts we wear to work out in are not the kind of thing we can also wear to run errands or pick the kids up from school. And who has time to change clothes several times a day? That’s why we love having cute workout stuff that can do double-duty — works great at the gym but also looks good running around town.
We’ve included a few pictures from the Nike apparel line so you’ll see some of the options you’ll have if you win this giveaway package. These pieces are all high quality so they’re going to wash well and last much, much longer than the super cheap stuff. Plus, Nike’s apparel is designed to move with you and not get in your way when you’re working out or running.
Workout clothes are great, but you’ve also got to get your hair out of the way when you’re working out. And we LOVE the Sweaty Band line of headbands. The designs are really cute. In fact, my 6-year-old daughter spotted one of my Sweaty Bands and wanted it for herself. And take it from someone who has thick hair with a mind of its own — these headbands really do stay in place better than any other brand I’ve tried. (And I’ve tried a LOT.)
Sweaty Bands come in a ton of colors and patterns and they also come in different widths so you can try the skinny ones, medium width or the thick bands, like the one shown on the left .
