Last August when I ran Hood to Coast, Endorphin Warrior gave our runners a Warrior Training Bracelet. Each bracelet has a word or phrase on it that represents healthy living and positive thinking. When I was a rower at Tennessee, our team chant was “Relentless Today, Fearless Tomorrow”. The word relentless always stuck out to me and I was constantly striving to attain that attribute in my life so I chose to have RELENTLESS on my bracelet. There are so many other inspiring phrases like fearless, believe, courage, and even some that have the half and full marathon distances on them. Choosing a phrase was the hardest part.
Let me also say that I am usually not a big fan of jewelry because usually it tends to be flashy and gaudy, but this bracelet is so neutral that I can wear it in day-to-day life or even add it to a wrist stack if I’m wearing something other than spandex type clothing. The plate that the phrase is inscribed on is made of nickel, so you could sweat on it or swim in it all you wanted and it would still never rust or tarnish. I have worn it almost everyday since leaving Hood to Coast and I often get compliments on it and people ask where I got it from. The best part about it? Only 20 bucks! I’ve had my eye on quite a bit of “running” jewelry here lately but they all usually run (no pun intended) at least fifty bucks, and to me that is not worth it.
Wearing my Endorphin Warrior bracelet is sort of a fashion statement, but it is also a reminder. I love looking down during the day and seeing the word relentless and being reminded to persevere and to not give up on my fitness goals. I have to use my hands to reach for chips and cookies but when I reach out and see my bracelet on my wrist, then I slowly back away. It definitely is a great reminder.
After being so in love with this bracelet, I contacted the owner of Endorphin Warrior, Eric, to let him know. He was so kind and encouraging and I could really tell how much he loves what he does and how much he stands behind his product. I asked if I could host a giveaway for my readers and he emailed back right away and was so generous and was so happy to offer a training bracelet to one lucky reader! So here’s the nitty gritty of the giveaway:
