A Must-Have - iFitness Belt!!! (and Giveaway)
I consider my iFitness belt a racing must-have. Truth be told, the iFitness belt is the first running "gadget" I ever bought. At the White Rock Marathon Expo last year, I passed their booth and decided I must have one of these little, stretchable belts that are waterproof and have a little pocket for my ID. For my first half-marathon, my iFitness belt carried my phone, my ID, some cash, and a chapstick (no, I didn't use GU back then... duh!).
Yep, here I am looking like death... with my pitiful Timex, GU-less, a BUFF that just wouldn't stay scrunched up, and of course, my first iFitness belt!
That iFitness belt has gotten a lot of use - mostly in races, but occassionally in long runs. But nothing is better than an upgrade, right? I was sent this new iFitness Ultimate Race Belt to try out:
Nice, right? Well check it out all loaded up for a race...
Mmmmm... 6 spots for GU or other "snacks" (I fit Shot Bloks in it fine for my 20-mile race, and in this photo on the far left is actually a SportsBeans pack that fit in there fine too), plus the Neoprene water-resistant pouch for my chapstick and phone, with a small pocket inside for my ID and some cash, and two clips to hold your race belt. Have I ever mentioned how much I absolutely hate putting holes in my shirt for a race bib?
Look at how happy I am to be running in my iFitness belt! I have used this belt for my last 3 races (13.1, 13.1, and 20), and it worked great for all. I love how quickly I can get my race bib on (no adjusting it 15 times to get it straight on my shirt). I love how much fuel it can hold... plenty of GU for a marathon! I love how it stays firmly in place (please note that I realize it looks like it has ridden up in both of the photos, but I assure you that I have no upper body at all and that's just where my hips are... I have insanely long legs). The pouch easily fit my larger phone plus a chapstick plus ID and cash. I loved not having to open the pouch and potentially knock something out of it (like a key!) when I'm trying to get a GU... it was all right there. This belt will be with me at the marathon as well... no doubt about it.
I know what you are thinking... you want one, don't you? Well guess what? The awesome Hailey from iFitness has agreed to mail an ultimate race belt to one of my lucky readers!!! Woo-hoo! 'Tis the season for giving!
