How to Keep Your Hair Out of Your Eyes During Exercise

Hair in the eyes, blowing your bangs out of the way or swiping at loose hairs. We’ve all been there, both guys and girls. We’re trying to focus on the workout at hand and our hair keeps getting in the way and distracting us! Well, we’re hear to help solve your issue and provide some solutions to this age old problem.

4. The tried and true-hat

Hats are easy, coordinate well with different outfits and sometimes even possess lucky qualities. We’re fans of Headsweats hats as their stretchy visor truly is a one size fits all hat.

Christmas Day Running Outfit

Christmas Running Outfit

 

If my achilles/calves are up to running Christmas morning, I’m hoping to sneak in a quick run before we get to tearing unwrapping Christmas gifts, eating way too much and drinking too much.

I put together this fun Christmas morning run outfit for us warm-er runners where we don’t have to worry about snow and ice but whether or not it will be chilly enough to turn off the air conditioning and maybe even have a log burning in our barely used fireplaces.

New Balance Boylston Top

 

1. New Balance Boylston Long Sleeve Running Shirt-$59.99

This lightweight running shirt with reflection on both the front and back by New Balance is great for when you need a little more warmth but certainly don’t need a jacket or turtle neck. With thumb holes and a semi-fitted fit, you’ll be comfortable on your holiday run.

2. Christmas Holiday Lady Runner Hat on Zazzle.com-$15.95

Let’s face it, reindeer antlers and Santa hats are cute but are certainly not made for running in. You may think it’ll be worth it but after the first 1/10th of a mile, you’ll be ready to ditch your holiday accessory in the first bush that comes along. Zazzle has several cute trucker hats with fun holiday prints on them. These hats are super lightweight, adjustable and just fun!

CW-X Stabilyx

3. CW-X Stabilyx 3/4 Tight-$90.00

CW-X includes support with their Support Web exoskeleton (the piping up and down the legs). This design feature is supposed to help with knee, lower back and leg support. The green piping of course makes it great for the holidays.

4. Swiftwick Aspire Zero Socks in Red-$12.99

Swiftwick is based and made here in the United States and provides varying degrees of cushion, compression and moisture wicking properties in all of their socks. The Aspire line is a personal favorite as I wear them both to the store and on runs because they provide just the right amount of compression and cushion. The red is the perfect shade for Christmas and will be great for wearing during present time as well.

5. Nike Free 5.0-$100.00

Nike Frees are popular for their natural, barefoot like feel and support. They are super flexible and are low profile plus they come in lots of colors! These running shoes also don’t have sewn overlays and boast a sock-like interior for easy on and off. 6.7 ounces and 8 mm drop.

If hats aren’t your thing, check out Sparkly Soul’s Red and Green no-slip headband!
