Feels like a century ago now than I ran Hackney Half Marathon. My training has changed since then but one thing that hasn’t has been the heat.
Race day saw temperatures in excess of 22 degrees celsius before midday even hit! I went prepared though – hydration was key for me, and outfit was second to that. I chose items which were light, breathable and sweat wicking. I also kinda broke the golden rule about trying new things on race day, but I thought “how bad could a headband be?!” …surely it could only do me more good than it could bad?!
The answer is YES! ..I didn’t even have to think about sweat dripping into my eyes. It fit so comfortably I never had to think about it being on my head. The fact is, when you barely notice a piece of kit that means its doing a pretty amazing job!
I opted for the Halo II in hot pink which also helped me to stand out a little in all the crowds on race day.

My Halo II will be my hot weather (and not so hot weather) hero in the future for sure! In my eyes, the choices were to wipe the sweat away each time it became annoying on my forehead, or purchase a sweatband straight from the 1980’s.
