Marathon Maniac

Disclaimer: I received a Merino Wool BUFF® to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!"

I have officially added BUFF® to my race day and training runs gear. The 100% Merino Wool BUFF® is my latest addition to my collection. It is a soft and full BUFF® that is perfect as a head or hand wrap.

Since the temperatures have warmed up a bit I used it as a hand wrap for grabbing sweat during runs. As I am running I have a tendency to wipe my face with my hands or shirt. Eventually both become saturated with sweat and that doesn't look or feel too good after a long run. To avoid this issue I wrap the buff around my hand and use it to keep the sweat away during a run. It was beyond a blessing to have during my pursuit of becoming a Marathon Maniac this season. The BUFF® fits securely and comfortably around my hand an does not feel constricting. My hands also remain dry during the runs which is an added bonus. It also grabbed 26.2 miles of sweat during humid temperatures. The absorbancy of this product is amazing.

The verdict

I am a BUFF® fan. I use them for all my long distance runs. I typically feel weird when I don't have them to keep my sweat in check. Even though marathon season is over for now, the BUFF® is coming with me to the NYC marathon.
