Friday Favorites: Rok Bands


TGIF! What better way to kick off a Friday than with a giveaway? Also, it doubles as the return of my “Friday Favorites” posts. If you want to look back at some of my other faves, just type “Friday Favorites” into the search box on the right side bar. Easy peasy!

Today’s favorite/giveaway is courtesy of Gone For A Run. When I was working the Running Skirts booth at Rock ‘N’ Roll Providence, I had the pleasure of being across from the one for a run booth and meeting these sweet people! We got to talking, and I told them I was a blogger and they asked if I wanted to do some product reviews/giveaways. Um, of COURSE! Up first is the Rok Band! I will admit, I had never heard of such an animal until I saw it at the expo.

The thing I like about these babies is they are more versatile than your average performance headband. Check out the ways you can wear it in the picture below:

I also love that guys can wear them too, unlike some of the other performance headband brands. (No stealing husband!) I opted to try out the cute paisley one, so it will go with a lot of my outfits.


At first I wasn’t exactly sure the best way to handle this one! I ended up folding it over twice, and it worked like a charm. I like that its thin enough that even doubled up, it wasn’t super thick on my head. Also, it was tight enough to stay in place, but not so tight that it gave me a headache as some tend to do. I can’t wait to try wearing it a different way!

check out these before and after shots from my run. I didn’t touch the Rok Band once the entire run and it didn’t move an inch!
