So I sweat a lot when I run, especially in the hot California Summers. I used to take old wash cloths with me and just keep them in my pocket. The problem is that they take up a lot of space and make my shorts feel weird. Also, on more than one occasion, I have put my hand in my pocket to grab the wash cloth, only to find my pocket empty.
I ran across a product called the Runningluv towel. It is towel and so much more. Their mottos are “catch what runs.” and “A Towel. A Tissue. It Solves The Issue.” Runningluv was started in 2011 by Danielle Aiken who started running with her husband to change their lifestyle. Danielle wanted to create a drop free tissue to tackle her runny nose. The Runningluv towel was the end result.
The Runningluv towel is made up of a lightweight Lycra/spandex and nylon band. It has a two sided towel that attaches to it. One side is an absorbent, antimicrobial towel that will hold 4 times as much as a normal towel. The other side is soft and gentle on your skin.
The Runningluv towel can be wrapped around your wrist, palm, or just hang free. I like wrapping it around the palm of my hand. I used this towel in a complete downpour for 2 hours and it kept soaking up the water off of my face. Amazing! The materials are durable and continue to be soft after over 15 washes, it is still holding up. The only downside is that I only have one. I will be buying another in the near future.
Let’s just say that my days of running with a nastyold wash cloth are over, thanks to my new
Runningluv towel. They start at $12 and come in over 35 color combinations to match your personality. They can be purchased at http://www.runningluv.com/.
