Running Half Buff
Often imitated, but nothing like the original, this buff is more than half full.
If you're not familiar with BuffUSA, Original BUFF® headwear is the product that started the multi-functional headwear revolution. At its core is a moisture-managing microfiber fabric that is wind resistant and able to control odor.
I am already a proud owner of a Buff Original BUFF® headwear. The Original BUFF® headwear can be worn more than 12 different ways from a cap to a balaclava to a hair tie, for a personalized style and perfect fit. The original BUFF® headwear is made of a light-weight odor resistant fabric that can protect you from the harshest elements; sun, wind, rain, and cold. The HalfBuff is "cut from the same cloth" literally, but has less fabric lending itself to the hotter months. The "inverse" is also true as they have a Merino version worthy of the coldest runs you might have when winter rolls back around.
Being a survivor of skin cancer myself, I'm particularly cautious about what I wear when I'm headed outdoors for a run and equally careful about what products I use. I ALWAYS have something to help cover the head and Buff's UV protection is an added bonus in terms of protection.
Coming off a fractured foot, my outdoor runs have been limited of late, but I've spent the last month doing a lot of cross-training in the gym and like the HalfBuff for those workouts in "headband mode" providing help with the sweat. I'm a profuse sweater...as in I have "cartoon-like" sweat.
With several hot weeks left as I commence marathon training again (gulp...wish me luck, rub your rabbit's foot for me,) I will get a lot of use out of my HalfBuff. One of my fellow BibRavePro's turned me onto a great idea and that is soaking it in water and freezing it the night before a really hot run. She wore hers around her neck and it was a great way to keep the "engine cool" on the run.
