I ran 140 miles last month. Guess how many of those miles included a hat on my head… Yep, 140 of them.
When I first became a runner, I had short hair. Too short to be put back in any way, but long enough to end up in my eyes. For a while, I ran with the front pulled up on top of my head with a scrunchy. Thankfully, there are no pictures in existence of that goofy look. Then I bought my first running hat and there was no turning back.
Since that first hat, I’ve amassed a pretty large collection. But here’s my problem. I have a smallish head, so often the hat is still a bit big, even if I have it adjusted to the smallest possible option. Usually I can find a way to make a hat work, but not always. And I often look goofy in hats because they are wider than my face.
Last year as a Zooma ambassador, I was given a Headsweats hat. I LOVED it!
It fit me perfectly and could have actually been made a bit smaller. It was also extremely comfortable and lightweight. The mesh top kept my head cool and the interior sweatband helped keep the sweat out of my eyes. I liked it so much that I actually bought my mom a visor for her birthday.
I had planned to buy myself a new Headsweats hat this spring, but conveniently, the company reached out to me and offered me a hat and one to give away. Needless to say, I said yes! Of course, I chose a pink hat with 26.2. Yeah, I’m that girly.
So far, I’ve worn it on a bunch of runs, washed it a few times (I always hang it to dry) and worn it to the pool. It still looks like new and I still love it.
In fact, I’m trying to figure out which hat I need to add to my collection next (no, my hat collection is not as big as my skirt collection…) I’m thinking the evil pumpkin one looks fun.
