Sun during your run? BUFF® to the rescue!

Disclaimer: I received UV Half 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!"

In Atlanta we happily chant about the hills, heat, and humidity (3H's) that the city is known for. We even have shirts that proudly display the 3 H's. While the 3H's help to define the city's character, they can make a run difficult when all three are in full effect. This summer the heat and humidity are competing to see which one can scorch ATL the fastest and hottest.

One item I have to battle the heat is the UV half BUFF® ( The BUFF® can block 95% of UV radiation to protect your skin from the sun's damaging rays. It comes in a variety of colors to match any color aesthetic and can be worn in 13 different ways.

My favorite use of the BUFF® during my runs is as headband to protect my face and scalp. I also like to use as a sweat grabber for 5k runs, but for longer runs I prefer to use the full BUFF® because it has more surface area for collecting sweat.

Overall, I like using UV half BUFF® for my summer running adventures.
