Ok... what's interesting is that today I'm reviewing a running accessory that, at first glance, serves no physical function in running. It's not a minimalist shoe... not something to help you hydrate.. it won't protect you from the sun and elements, and it won't enhance your performance... or will it?
What you are looking at is a Warrior Training Bracelet from Endorphin Warrior. Endorphin Warrior offers a variety of styles of running jewelry. Ok... if you know me, I'm not a super trendy, fashion conscious kind of guy (I wear black socks with sandals for crying out loud)... but something about these bracelets grabbed my attention.
Before I get into more of my story, let me share with you the "mission" of Endorphin Warrior.. I think it's pretty cool:
At Endorphin Warrior, our aim is to help you train, perform and live with greater strength of body and mind. We make products with positive and powerful messaging to wear while running, cycling, working out, sweating, racing - or all day long - to help you stay strong-minded and focused...and help you train harder, improve performance, overcome challenges, achieve your goals and live stronger.
|These look great, and are really comfortable|
But, for some reason, the thought if it kept popping back into my head. I really like the motivational words that you can select for your bracelet. Click on this link HERE and go check out what they have and think about what one reaches out to you.. For me it was "unbreakable". As you may know, I'm not a fast runner by any means... and sometimes my running turns into walking. But mentally, I start every run and every race to finish it. I may get beat up, slowed down, or exhausted, but I will NOT be broken... I will finish. And that is what this bracelet says to me. Does it work? My first run with it was my long run a few weeks ago... the first time I've run 15 miles... and I looked at my wrist often after mile 13 when it got tough. It was a quick reminder that nothing was going to stop me from finishing... and I like that. So you know what I'll be wearing at my marathon in January! Which now also has me thinking more about the "performance enhancing Kokopelli" over at Trail Runner Nation! But I digress..
