As you know – I am not a big fan of race belts on the run. They tend to ride up on me and end up sitting under my chest like an oversized heart rate monitor… not good for race pictures but awesome for a laugh. I thought it would be good to invent something simple that could carry my fuel, and my keys and any money.. and of course the same week I came up with this brilliant idea, I saw the RooSport at the Cowtown Marathon Expo. I was really nervous about using this because I am the chafe queen and anything that can chafe me – will. This thankfully did not.
The product is quite simple. There is a magnet that snaps the pouch to the shorts and stays in place while you run. I placed my key in the zipper pocket and in the velcro pocket I had 3 gels (with room for more). My fuel was easily accessible and the pouch stayed firm in place with nothing flying out. I have run over 13 miles with this pouch and have had no issues with it.
Comparing this product to SpiBelt – the SpiBelt bounced all over and drove me nuts- this product stayed in place and the bounce was minimal. The price is comparable at $19.95. Overall I am happy with this purchase – and want to give you a chance to try it out too – so I am offering a give away – with a few simple steps for you to win:
- Go over and “like” RooSport On Facebook
- leave a comment with a guess on my predicted finish time for this weekends RnR San Diego Half Marathon
Who ever comes the closest – gets to try this out – winner will be announced by Jason on Monday.
