Donâ€™t forget the bike! Hah.
I feel like I did an awesome job packing for Sundayâ€™s race. I brought everything I needed but didnâ€™t end up carrying around a bunch of extra stuff. Hereâ€™s what I took with me:
Tri-suit (I wore one from MooMotion)
Enell sports bra (BTW, this dried off really well in the swim to bike/run transition)
Food for before and after race
Post-race change of clothes
(Others also brought a wetsuit because the swim was wetsuit legal)
Two small hand towels for drying off
Gloves (didnâ€™t wear them though)
Fuel â€“ I ended up taking three Gus and a packet of Sport Beans
Sneakers (I wore my New Balance 880s with Lock Laces)
So, the SpiBelt was the first running belt that I ever wore. I really liked it, but after a bit, I thought it got more â€œbouncyâ€ and it was no longer my fav. But the company just contacted me to tell me that they reformulated the elastic band to prevent this from happening! Iâ€™ve been testing out the improved belt for a few weeks and now I remember why I love SpiBelts so much. <3 <3 <3
This belt is the â€œextra largeâ€ one â€“ and it holds an incredible amount of stuff â€“ but even the regular SpiBelt is pretty roomy.
The simple design is great for running or cycling â€“ thereâ€™s not a lot of fussing necessary to open it up. Just un-zip and grab your fuel or phone or keys or whatever. Easy! Plus â€“ so many cute and functional designsâ€¦
Prints â€“ Camo, Polka Dots, Peace Signs and More
SpiLeash <— a dog leash with a SpiBelt pocket built in (even cooler!)
Bonus â€“ safety pin your race number to the belt and the SpiBelt doubles as a race bib belt, too.
Wanna win a SpiBelt? Simply leave a comment stating what item you *must* bring to a race. Or comment with a key item you think I missed on my sprint tri packing list (like as watch â€“ I donâ€™t use them during races anymore, but I know most people depend on them!).
