One random commenter will win a TAM headband. If you want to order a custom headband, they're only $8 and $2 shipping in the US. They're made by a runner, who also happens to be a teacher, and designed not to fall off the back of your head and be left behind. You get to pick your colors, and they're made from running t-shirt fabric. You just need to email Terry.
Entries will close at 5 pm (Eastern Time) on September 22. I'll pick the winner that evening via random.org and announce on this blog (and email if you leave your email). You'll have 48 hours to get in touch with me, and Terry will send your headband along. Shipping to US only.
