iFitness & GU Giveaway

Wow! As of last night I officially have 50 "followers". I'm not sure I like that word because from what I have read from your blogs you ALL seem to be amazing leaders...nevertheless, I promised a giveaway when I reached 50...
In January, I purchased an iFitness  neoprene double pouch running belt at the Rock N' Roll Expo in Arizona and it is now one of my FAVORITE running accessories.  I had been looking for something to carry all my junk for a while but couldn't find one that didn't look like my Grandpa's fanny pack.  This is not your Grandpa's fanny pack!!


I contacted iFitness to order a belt for one of my awesome readers and to let them know how amazing I think their product is.  To my surprise they provided the belt for me to pass on to you!  I think you will love it just as much as I do!

Here is what iFitness says about the iFitness Neoprene Double Pouch :


Water resistant double pouch will keep your iPhone or Blackberry safe from rain or sweat.
A second pouch will keep your energy gels,keys or camera, separate from your phone.
An inner pocket will hold your ID and credit cards safely.
Two reflector strips in the front for your night time runs.
This belt will not bounce, chafe or ride up while you run! 


Here is what I have to say about it...
When I wore this in my last Half Marathon I could not even feel it!! Normally I have a problem with anything around my waist cutting in to my muffin tops or feeling really uncomfortable.  It is very comfortable.  It didn't budge the whole run. I didn't have to adjust it once. I forgot I had it on at the end of the race and didn't realize it until my brother asked me to give him his keys!
This is what I had in my belt:
 My Blackberry, my brother's car keys, Driver's License, emergency cash, lip balm, and 2 packs of my fave GU.
 You can barely see the belt
The belt I'm giving away is the same color as mine Grey with pink zipper.

The winner of the iFitness Belt will also receive 4 packs of my favorite GU-Jet Blackberry.

I went over and looked at the site and I like the belt that you are giving away the best. I looks very comfy and not like a fanny pack that I always envision when thinking about a waist pack.

I'm loving the double pouch neoprene belts. I hate not having a place to stick my phone and keys when running. I live in a sketch area and always want my phone with me just in case. This would work perfectly! :)
