Not your average fanny pack

A few weeks back I won a blog contest from Run with the Heart what did I win, I won a SPIBelt.

Since I started training in January I have always had the problem of what do I carry when I run and how do I make it all fit. In the winter and spring it was easy; just wear a coat that had pockets. This allowed me to carry my phone, ID, keys, iPod and fuel with little problem. However as the months warmed I would wear my coat, take it off before the end of mile one and they just tie it around my waist. In fact when I ran my half in May I started with a coat and 2 miles in I took it off. That meant for the rest of the time I had my coat around my waist. Not the most convent way to run.
I had been eyeing the SPIBelt for a few months but hadn’t pulled the trigger. The worst part about running for me is fear I am going to lose my car key when I am doing a race. I usually tie it to the inside of my pants and check it 100x to make sure it didn’t drop.

With the SPIBelt I no longer had to worry about this. My second fear is that it would bounce and move around. As a runner what is…ummm a little larger than most I have an irrational fear of things not fitting.  This was not the case with the SPIBelt,  I put it on jumped up and down and it didn’t move. I loaded my cell phone, ID, debt card and house keys in it, placed in on my hip area under my shirt and set out for a run.  It stayed in place! It didn’t move once and I could hardly tell it was there.  I used it again yesterday when I went to the park with my daughter. There nothing better than being hands free and able to play at the park without feeling your phone or keys in your pockets or worrying about them falling out.
