It’s Friday! Time for Some Weekend Shopping

I always look forward to Fridays. Even though I’m a parent now and weekends don’t bring the same luxuries as before, it’s still so nice to get to this day–mostly because my husband is home and that makes me happy 🙂

except naps don't really happen with 2 under 2 lol!

Anyway, weekends at our household usually mean going to Target and Walmart for our weekly grocery and necessities. It’s the kind of shopping we’ve been doing more of lately jaja!!

But, I do have something pretty awesome I recommend you buy this weekend. I recently was given a sweet SPIbelt to review and like many, I only have good things to say about it.

This was the beauty I received:

Before I had this awesome accessory, I would run with a water bottle that had a little zip pocket. I don’t mind running with it but when I would go for short runs where I didn’t really need/want water, I’d carry it just to put my keys in it. I even ran a few races carrying the water bottle solely for the key purpose. Kinda annoying. (This is another reason I like running with my husband. He becomes the key holder). I’ve tried putting my keys in those little pockets they put in shorts and pants now, but I could feel it when I’d run and didn’t trust that it’d stay put.

I also don’t run with my phone–no room and I don’t like wearing arm straps.

Then I read a few reviews on the SPI belt and a few of my buddies in my run club had them and I was intrigued. My first question was, “Will it jiggle or bounce when I run?” Well, I got the answer when I took it on my first run–NO 🙂 It really doesn’t move. I even forgot it was there during my 4 mile test run. And a bigger plus, no dangling straps. No one likes straps dangling while you run.

It fit my Samsung Galaxy S3, my keys, and my Chapstick. I could even fit more stuff if I wanted but I’m not that high maintenance (when I’m running anyway 😉 ).  I was so pleasantly surprised that even with the weight of my phone, I didn’t feel the belt when I ran. This made me very happy as I mostly run at night and like having my phone for security. Before, I always felt a little uneasy but didn’t have much of a choice unless I wore an arm strap or put it in my sports bra (um….no).

The belt is also fashionable and not in the gaudy-look-at-me kinda way. There are quite a few color and design options with the belt and different sizes. They even have plus-sized belts and kid belts (I definitely see one in my daughter’s future) and pet belts/leashes. And if I wanted something specifically to hold my keys and only my keys, SPIbelt offers a SPIband Wrist and Ankle Pocket–perfect if I didn’t want anything around my waist.

I’ll be running Rock ‘n’ Roll Madrid, Spain soon and I’ll definitely be sporting my SPIbelt during the race and while I tour Europe. It’s not just a runner’s accessory. You can use it while you go for walks, hiking, biking, or like me touring a city 🙂

So, if you’re in the market for an accessory belt, you’ve got my SPIbelt recommendation. You won’t regret your choice and you’ll see firsthand why it’s such a popular item.

Treat yourself to some online shopping this weekend. You deserve it! SPIbelt.com

–Do you carry stuff when you run?

–Do you have a SPIbelt and love it?

–What would you put in your SPIbelt?

Have a great weekend!! Good luck if you’re racing and have fun if you’re long running 🙂

I did receive my SPIbelt gratis, but the opinions expressed in this review are solely my own. I really am glad I have this thing!

  1. I lurve my SPIbelt! I currently carry my phone while I run because I run my training app on it.

    I get really thirsty and my throat gets really dry when I run. I would like to find a small little water bottle to carry in there. Also, I want to try to make some homemade energy gel that I might eventually carry in it.

    I don’t think there are enough good things I could say about SPIbelt!

  3. I have a few different belts and I pretty much hate all of them. They always ride up and are so uncomfortable for me. I made the super rookie mistake of wearing one for the first time in a race and it was awful! I try to buy pants/capris that have a decent sized pocket in the waistband which works well for my key, some sport beans and sometimes a phone. I’m glad that the belt works well for you!

  4. How did you get a free spibelt? I want one! I don’t usually carry anything, but I know that is dumb. Especially after my recent running fall, I could’ve really used a phone to call for someone to pick me up. Are you really running the Spain race???

    • I e-mailed them saying I was interested in doing a review and voila!You def need to carry a phone–it’s just too crazy what can happen out there. And yes!I’m running RnR Spain!! pretty excited 😀
