Hi Trippers!

And it doesn't get in the way of the "thumbs up."

A Handana-clad “thumbs up” to the winner.

Thanks to everyone who entered the Handana “Give Yourself a Hand” contest.

Apparently we’re a pretty sweaty bunch out there and wearing a handana will help you keep the “sparkle” (aka gallons o’ sweat) out of your eyes.

But without further ado, the winner of the Handana $15.99 gift certificate is: SUSY VARGAS.

Be sure to visit the Handana website…

Or click here to visit their Facebook Page.

And keep checking Tripping The Kenyans for fun contests (got a weeklong contest coming up near the end of the month) and plenty of witty witticisms.

Run on!


Hi Trippers!

The “Give Yourself a Hand” contest ends tonight at 9pm (PST), but there’s still time to enter.

Here’s what you do…

  1. Go to the Tripping The Kenyans Facebook page (and give us a “like” while you’re there). You can also leave a comment on the TTK blog or whatever page this post appears.
  2. Leave us a funny comment telling us how much you sweat when you run. And rate it on a scale of 1-10 (1= “I don’t sweat” and 10= “Forty Days and Nights of Perspiration”)

That’s it.

One lucky Tripper chosen at random will win a $15.99 gift certificate from Handana.

Don’t delay, enter today… Run on!

Hi Trippers!

Ready for another contest?

Well, this one couldn’t be better timed as we’re now all running in the midst of the sum-sum-summertime.

Yup, hot weather means sweaty running. Or in my case, gushing buckets from every pore on my body running.

So how about we give you a “hand” in keeping your excessive dewiness under control.

Recently, I posted a Gear Check article about the “Handana,” a cool sweat band you wear around your hand.

Check it out here. Read the rest of this entry


Give yourself a not-so-sweaty hand.

Give yourself a not-so-sweaty hand.

I’ve made it a point that every time I go to a race expo I pick up one new item to give a try. I’m always looking for diamonds in the rough.

When I was at the San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Expo earlier this month, I was kind of rushed (we got their only about 40 minutes before they closed), so I didn’t get to spend my normal amount of time checking things out.

I was heading for the exit a little bummed that I was leaving empty-handed. Then one booth caught my eye and I stopped to see what was what.

Looking at what appeared to be oddly shaped lycra straps, my first inclination was this was yet another company trying to sell funky smartphone holders.


As the nice lady at the booth explained, this was the “Handana,” a new take on the traditional wristband or sports headband.
