Yesterday morning I decided to put some of what I learned about running into practice. I didn’t track my miles and I went totally by feel. I swear it was one of the best runs I’ve ever had. I mean, could a running route be more beautiful? I think not.
I definitely wasn’t fast, but I was out there doing my best at that particular moment. It was a good time to practice this new “style” of running since I was going up and down a freaking mountain. If I had been watching my pace, I could have easily tried to push it a little too much. Then I might have 1) tripped and fallen to my death, 2) not paid close enough attention to cars, or 3) never wanted to run ever again in my life. I think I made a smart choice.
While I didn’t need my smartphone for tracking purposes, I still wanted to carry it with me for safety issues. I was running in an unfamiliar place and I am famous for my lack of navigational and decision making skills. I needed a lifeline. Luckily I had my new running buddy with me.
I was recently sent a new armband to test out in exchange for my honest feedback, and it’s safe to say that I’m a fan. The Armpocket is more than just a traditional armband. It’s like the Cadillac of armbands, y’all. Is that still a relevant phrase? Are Cadillacs still a thing? Whatever. I’m not known for being cool.
The band is crazy durable, machine washable, seriously comfortable, and absolutely does not slide around. My favorite thing about using the Armpocket, though, is the ability to carry more than just your phone. There is a credit card/ID slot, a storage strap for your headphones, and room for a house key or three. You can also store your race medal in there, but I’m not sure that recommended. Or normal.
Armpocket has several different band types. I went with the Aero™ i-10 in the brightest possible colors, but you can check out all of the styles on their website. In addition to allowing me to test one out, they are graciously allowing me to give one away! (The winner may not receive the exact model I have. It just depends on size, availability, color, etc. Just a head’s up!) If you’re on the hunt for the perfect armband, make sure to enter via the Rafflecopter below.
The giveaway will end on 11/2 and a winner will be announced the following day. Good luck! I’ll see you guys tomorrow with a weekend recap. 🙂
