Handana: my first ever product review and giveaway!!

Woohoo!! Just Keep Going is growing!  Not only have I aquired over 100 more followers on facebook but I have been privileged enough to do my first product review and giveaway. 

I first saw the Handana on an awesome female runner's instagram.  I thought it was the coolest thing I have ever seen.  She said it makes her feel "like a warrior" whenever she wears it.  What runner doesn't want to feel like a warrior when she runs?  I know I do! 

I wore my Handana today on my speed work session on the treadmill.  I almost always do my intervals on the mill.  It makes me move faster than I would on my own.  I also sweat A LOT on the treadmill.  I don't know if it's the actual treadmill that does it or the fact that I'm inside in a gym. 

Before - Don't I look strong?
I ran 1.5 mile warm-up, 6x800s, 400 recovery between each, and 1.25 mile cool-down for a total of 7 miles.  I like that it isn't a one-size-fits-all because it doesn't.  I got an XS which is a good fit for me.  I am 5 feet tall, around 105, if that gives you any idea of how to choose your size. 

I actually forgot I was wearing the Handana at one point until I had to wipe the sweat off of my face, then I remembered it!  The fabric is so soft.  Nothing like the towels you can get to use at the gym that can pretty much chap your face.  Salty sweat and rough fabric do not go well together.  Not only is it soft, it just keeps on soaking up the sweat.  Time after time, the sweat would come dripping down.  Time after time the Handana would wipe it all away, nice and soft-like.  I am a believer...this is the running accessory you never knew was possible... until now.  I will keep one with me on my runs and hope to try it on rides when it warms up enough for cycling.  Not that I need to mention it, but the Handana is super cute and you will feel strong.  Strength and cuteness: what a concept!
