After my Sunday morning run that my BRF’s and I had shared virtually in 3 different locations across Kansas and Georgia, we texted each other photos, and we were all wearing our Headsweats visors. I’d been thinking about applying for an ambassador program, but I didn’t really know what company to approach until Amber posted the collage of her, Jeneen, and I, and we all had the Headsweats visors on. It struck me immediately that their visors were something that I loved, and my friends loved them, so I knew it was a product that I’d feel good about sharing with my friends, running buddies, fellow triathletes, and basically everyone I knew. My Headsweats visor is my favorite visor to run in because the terry cloth sweat band is great for keeping the sweat out of my eyes, and it doesn’t make my forehead itch or break out.
I went to the Headsweats website, http://www.headsweats.com/, to see if they had an ambassador program, and they did! However, as I read about the athletes that they sponsored, the self doubt started creeping in, and I wondered if there was really any reason that I should try applying. Did I really even have a chance? Their athletes sound pretty accomplished. I’m still REALLY new in this journey, and they’re sponsoring people who look a lot more fit than me and who have qualified for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships. Amber & Jeneen have been encouraging me to apply for an ambassador program though, so I decided to just go for it.
As I finished the application, I didn’t really expect to hear from Headsweats very quickly since the website said it could take up to 90 days, so I just sort of filed it away in the back of my mind. While I was at Six Flags with my kids yesterday, I checked my phone, and I had a new email from Headsweats. I was glad to get the response so quick telling me that I wasn’t accepted….oh, no, wait a minute, what does that say? I am accepted? Me? Really? I literally had to read the email multiple times. I was so excited that I had to have the kids sit down for a second, so I could respond to Headsweats and accept.
What does all this mean? Well, right now, I’ve got to get a bio and photo together to send to Headsweats to post on their website which is scary. It’s going to be seen by who knows how many people. What should I say? What picture should I use? Is my grammar correct? Is it interesting? I might have a little bit of stress going on about this now, but it’s a good stress. It also means that all of you get a special opportunity to get a 25% discount! To get the discount, simply go to http://www.headsweats.com, and use the code INNERSPARTAN on any full-priced purchase to get 25% off. Myself, I will be ordering the Coolmax Shorty or Super Duty Shorty to try out under my bike helmet. Keep an eye out for that review in the future.
