I’m starting to think about MdS as a restful vacation with a bit running thrown in. I’m not underestimating the desert...
How to Make an Ice Bandana for Your Hot RunsLiza
Wearing an ice bandana during a long run or race when it’s really hot can change your experience from this:
Here’s out to make one for free. (Assuming you don’t need to buy a $1 bandana or a needle and thread.) It’ll only take 15-25 minutes depending on when you last threaded a needle.
Step 1: FOLD THE BANDANA IN HALF
STEP 2: START STITCHING AT THE TIP OF THE TRIANGLE
STEP 3: USE ANY SIMPLE STITCH
I used an overcast stitch here.
But you can also use a running stitch,
or any stitch you like that will hold the edges together.
Your stitches don’t need to be this close. They just need to be close enough to hold ice cubes in.
STEP 4: CONTINUE STITCHING UNTIL YOU’RE ABOUT 6 INCHES FROM THE TOP EDGE.
STEP 5: STITCH UP THE OPPOSITE SIDE THE SAME WAY.
NOW IT’S READY FOR ICE.
You can also wear it in front.
More pictures to come tomorrow when I’m in running clothes.
