Due to the rainy rainy weekend and knowing that I would have today off work while the kids went to school I decided to save my long run for today. The weather was nice and cool for it and it felt pretty good until about 9 miles in and then it was rough. My legs were tired and crampy. Maybe I should have fueled better. I had planned to do 15, but decided it wasn't my day. Still not a bad run and only 11 days and 18 hours until the Bozeman Half Marathon! YAY
One of the things I have used on my runs lately has been a Flipbelt.
What is a
Flipbelt is a tubular band designed to wear around your waist or hips.
Flipbelt, including a clip to hook keys to.
What do I put in mine?
My phone, chapstick, toilet paper, gels, and sometimes bear spray.
Very well. I was using an armband for my iPhone and a belt for my water and gels, and toilet paper. I didn't want to wear two belt type things so I used my Camelback to hydrate with on the long runs I wore my Flipbelt for. I didn't have to adjust the Flipbelt while running, which is a huge plus in my book.
Easy and comfortable to use
I can fit a lot of things in it easily
Not waterproof, so if you are worried about getting your phone, ipod, whatever wet you need to protect it with a plastic bag, which is no big deal.
I can't put my water in it.
